    Hi Bootsy,

    Well, #1 is a classic to treasure forever; a lovely expression well caught for family posterity, if only the background were not so cluttered, it could have been a great shot fullstop. All may not be lost - if this is uncropped, or almost so, I wonder if there isn't at least a web resolution image in a crop of just her face, since that's the important part.

    #2 just doesn't work for me - its just an unfortunate coincidence of lips, nose and bubble hoop that looks wrong, also, I think it would look better with more 'punch'; this is flat and soft - possibly deliberately so (sorry, it's not for me). I'd like the bubbles to be sharp.

    Hope that's not too critical a critique, bear in mind I'm just me and I'm often wrong

    I agree with Dave about the lips etc., but I was wondering if you did the soft look on purpose. To me, it very much resembles a still from a 1960s home video. Very retro.

    That's it, I thought it looked familiar - isn't there a famous image/pop promo like #2?

    Ten brownie points to the member who finds it

    (still not my cuppa tea though, sorry)

    Well spotted Myra,
