First I noticed how beautiful the composition was....then I noticed it's you Gayle! very beautiful!
Eddie Ling24-Feb-2006 23:37
What a good idea!

I love the way you have matched the beautiful soft shows of the girls with the shadow around the picture frame. I also like how the lighting has highlighted the eyes of the 'toplevel' model.

And those girls are so cute, Im going to give my own little ones a cuddle now!

I agree with Mikel on the outer frame. Wonderful work though. These type
of images never gets old.

The *only* thing this image needs, if it can be said to need anything at all, would be a repeat of the frame around the entire image.

This is a beautiful piece, Gayle. Beyond the overall concept, I marvel at how delightful and technically fine each of the portraits are. The eyes above the outside frame are brilliant. -Michael

how incredibly cute! this is just awesome. i may have to copy the theme sometime myself since i can't seem to come up with anything creative on my own!!!!

Gayle, this is a beautiful collection of images!!

I've followed the thread on "uniqueness" & want to point out that iflute wasn't unique and yet was a wonderful interpretation of the ipod commercials. While this type of thing has been done by others, it is still your take on it that makes it unique. You've done an excellent job here!! -- Jeannie (jburly)

P.S. - And yes, I too am inspired to do something similar with my family. Thanks!!

I love it! I've seen this technique done a few times before and every time I marvel at the greatness of it. Your interpretation is one of the best I've seen. Wonderful! I hope to make one of my family some day soon. If you wouldn’t mind sharing any of your technique it would be appreciated. Thanks! -Earl Waud

Pedro, layer style/inner shadow is how I did the shadow in the frame.
pfehlauer19-Jun-2005 18:06
A hint on how you did it? I guess you made a PS composite... but the frame's shadow? How did you do that?
pfehlauer19-Jun-2005 18:04's amazing!! And so beautiful... very well done!!! If you don't mind, I have to test this with my kids...
Gayle Knowles19-Jun-2005 11:44
Oh wow, I didn't mean to steal or copy anyones idea :-( This evolved from a totally different idea that I started with.
Lee, I still have a broken arm, still in cast up to my elbow.

Dear Gayle:
I hate, I hate you, I hate you! I feel this way because I often see, as here, that you have so much talent and vision that....I hate you, (grin).

Gosh this is soooo good. Could you give me a step by step of how you did something like this? I am so impressed. Best Wishes, Traveller
