I can't decide what direction to go with this set of pictures I took of Jackson. I bought these rain boots and rain jacket a while ago to do some 1 year pictures but the weather has been too warm and sunny! Not that I'm complaining. Anyway, I just can't decide how I want the PP to look on these.

First, this is kind of my stand-by... I love color pop so I did it with this to see how it looks. At first I thought it didn't fit with the rain pictures, but then I thought maybe with the bright green it gave the feeling of spring and growth.


Which one looks better? Or does neither work?

The first one would need his face cooled down a bit (his face looks much more natural in the second one.

I personally like the 1st one better but they are both nice! ;)

I would go with the colour popped first one, but mask it back off him, his skin is going very very yellowish/green.

What was the feeling you were going for? Bright and colourful, or misty and cool?

I keep going back and forth looking at them both and really can't decide so I'm no help to you at all. I do agree that the colour pop needs to be masked back off his skin in the first one.

I'm the minority, but I like the second better, considering the "rainy" feel. The first reminds me more of a fall day, but the second looks like a cool spring day and much more natural, IMHO.
