Awesome, very creative idea! Can’t wait to try it. I do understand doing what is photographically best as well as doing what the client wants. That’s my approach too. Great advice.

But what you’re saying is so true. I’ve been through similar things in print competition. Some comments were right on point. Others, I just shook my head.
