    Default "Self" Family Portrait?

    I set everything up and got my sister to take it. We have about four or five. As far as sharpness goes, this is the best, but my wife is just a head.

    It's a really nice photo, A.T. Years from now you will be loving it. Some wedding photographers especially will not even look at their shots besides just a quick review, right away. A week or two after taking the shots they will edit them. I think you can look at them with less bias that way. We are all our own worst critics and sometimes the severe criticism is not really warranted. That being said, I have set up family portraits and group shots at work with the camera on a tripod and then run into the photo after getting everyone in place (This was in the days of film which for me was not that long ago.) only to find that after getting the photos developed that one or two people have shifted either in front of or behind someone else and they are partially obscured. It's like herding cats I tell you.

    We are going to re-take it this evening and reposition the girls so my wife won't be just a floating head and a leg.

    I think I realize the color problem. I have a flat screen All-In-One computer. Here in Florida, I am sitting at a bar on my computer, looking kind of down at my screen. At home I am sitting at my desk, kind of looking up at the screen.
