I decided to take Michelle’s advice and try cropping and rotating the walking-the-aisle shot. And wow! What a difference. I had to fill in the bottom left part of the photo using the Clone stamp, but I don’t think it’s super-noticeable (please tell me if it is!) – and I like it much better than the photo with the harp now. (Look at the larger version of the photo – the detail isn’t obvious in the small version.) The harp photo is a bit over-exposed on the dress – the walking-the-aisle shot shows better detail and much more dynamic movement. This is important since, at Convergence, people will have the dress in front of them, but they won’t be able to see how the outfit moves, except in the photo.
Here’s the harp again to compare:
And, even after cropping, I didn’t like the photo of me and Mike standing as much as I did the photo of us seated, so I’ll be using the second photo:
I may crop it a bit so it’s more vertical, though – I need to figure out how to fit them into a suitable display format, as one is vertical and the other is horizontal.
Our plane is about to board for the return flight to San Francisco, so I won’t try for more right now. Soon we’ll be back home, where the cats will no doubt be overjoyed to see/sit on us. Vancouver’s been great fun, but (clicks shoes together) there’s no place like home.
