I Need Your Opinion

Today in between loads of laundry and doing some straightening around the house, when I would normally be doing some "craft time" I made a decision. I've been a little tired of how my photos have been turning out lately so I decided to make my own lightbox. I had found the directions from someone or somewhere and they didn't look hard so I dove right in. It wasn't hard but here's the thing, I'm not really sure which I like better before or after the light box. So I'm hoping I can get some help from you my lovely friends. What do you think?

Before:
After:
Now I will admit this, that maybe the biggest thing is that I might need practice but tell me what you think anyway because I can always use the help.

You don't see the "flash" in the second one, but which card looks more like the actual color?

The first one is brownish and the second looks burgundy.

I like it before. Did you adjust your picture after you took it with the light box? If you want you can send them to me and I can see what I can do with them.

Hi! I love your card!

I like the after better but you need to adjust the color balance on your camera for indoor lighting or if you can't do that adjust levels in photoshop. That will get rid of the orange cast and your photo will be *perfect*

Beautiful card! I would have to say I like the first better. Brighter, shows the color and details better. But like you said, maybe it just takes practice to use the lightbox?! Good luck.

Hi!
What a great card :-)

I think I like the top one the best. I think the angel of the photo is better, but that might be totaly insignificant. Its difficult to say wich one has the best colour when not seeing the actual card! It looks like to different cards, one with brown ribbons and one with red!

I can't tell you....I struggle with this too. The photos I like best are the ones I take up in natural daylight. Good luck in your search for the perfect photo-takin' situation!! ;)
