Composition I Do Not Like

Jailbird

Rapscallion
I just do not think these two postcards work.  I post them because I post everything I work on.  I tried out so many things and there are portions of each card I do like but overall I do not care for either of them. I think it is the composition? Hmm!  What I do like are the hands.  I like the color choices.  I like the target birds on Rapscallion.  I like the lines made with the sewing tool.  All together, NO!

Well I like them both very much- I think they are strong compositions and I like the black and white standout from the color but balanced with the black parts- the dots and birds and sew lines. Very nice John.

I like them both very much as well!!! I think the black and white photos going off the page create some interest.

i like them too. I'm not sure how to feel about the men -- are the "jail birds"? if so, the round black dots may be too playful?

I like them both reversed! And with the angled one straightened. Seem to work better for me that way.
