1st attempt at a triptych image...

do the extra borders around each image work in this? should i get rid of them?

It works. Not sure its optimal. I think the border of each image needs some definition especially at the top. I find the single thin border separated slightly from the body of the photograph causes come conflict. I think this arises beacuse it is about the same thickness and tone of the branches. It does need the little extra, so keep them. Maybe experiment with some other type.


Very nice. You might want to play with the order. Right one in the centre. Centre one on the right. I would play with the sizes. Make the new centre one slightly larger than the flanking ones. The one you have on the right is the most powerful in terms of her expression, position, and her gaze.

my 2 cents....

ok i messed around w/ it a bit, let me know if this is an improvement

i put the right one in the middle like was suggested, i think it works well that way, i messed around w/ accenting the middle more than the other two but it just didn't look right to me so i left them all w/ the same width solid black border.

what'dya think?

I think you have done a very nice job of these photos, B/W works well with your triptych attempt.

I think that works very nicely!!!. The girlfriends position in the centre frame does exactly what I hoped would be acomplished by resizing.


NICE

yes your 2nd shot at this is much better. mage seems to flow much more now. seems very natural to look at. this is a great series

i have seen frames tht have 3 shot inserts in them. this would look great presented in tht way

great work
