I took these a while ago when I was visiting my grandparents. I'd appreciate any input I could get since I plan to print them (I was thinking 20*30 cm/8*12 inch) and give them these. If I give them as a set, should I crop the one of my grandmother so they match in size?

Nice pictures Paukl.
I dont think you have to do anything about the first image. Its good as it is.

As for the second one, i would try to decrese luminosity of the green/yellow channels so that the background doesnt "pop" and distract the view of your grandmother.

You can also try to increse lumi on the red channel to make the face look more lit.

Good pics.

To make the image more intense I would experiment with cropping some of the top of the first one, maybe halving the distance from the top of the head to the top edge.

See if you can do the same at the bottom to lose the coffee cup.


just a thought

Good point. I didnt notice that one.

You could also try to clone the cup out if cropping doesnt do it for you. I gave it a go and it is possible to clone the cup out.

While doing that i noticed some grey specs at the left side of the image just where his head starts, and some kind of grey smoke under his left ear. Those can also be removed.
