This post was inspired by MissKerouac's post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221821.0. Hers are absolutely beautiful, so with Valentine's coming up, i tried a few of my own for my boyfriend. Also self-taken with a lack of time and money and I also used a photo editor to add effects.

Hope you like and Thank MissKerouac for inspiration.
-- seductive shot

-- Cute shot

-Dramatic shot

They're all printed on 8x10 and I'm not sure which one to frame...
I wrote a poem for him as well and I'm thinking of maybe framing them together? or Maybe that's too personal...

any suggestions for presentation would be greatly appreciated!!

My favorite is the seductive shot.  Very Marilyn Monroe!

I love the first shot! The composition is perfect, the lighting is amazing, nice contrast. And I love the super big grain. It just has some magic about it.

I'm going to have to go with the "cute" shot. You are simply adorable in that one. Smiley

I also love the first shot.  I did something similar for my boyfriend, with a poem, but I put the poem on the back, and then framed it in an all glass frame.  Part of the poem was covered up by the hanging apparatus, but he still takes it out to read it occasionally!
