I like this very much Frank and I recognize a couple of your subjects. I'm sure this would also look good in black & white as well. I might even go as far to a Norman Rockwell look for the experimentation. Either way, looks good as it is. Nice !!!

This I really, really like! I love it in color though Dave is right, it would work in B&W, but in my opinion not quite as well. Part of what makes it is the tall-to-small lineup with everyone standing pretty relaxed except for Sparkle Plenty at the end, doing her hip thing. That's what I think makes it! She's like an exclamation point!! :D

Hard for me to be objective: there is a picture set up just like this and me and my cousins when I was about 7 or 8, and it’s a family treasure, which this will be too. Glad you left it in color, it’s a cool family shot. Take one of the same group in the same order and pose in a couple more years and frame them in a double frame.

looks like they have already been getting in. I think it is warmer where you are. I like Minnie's idea, this one needs a redo -- 10 years from now and then put them together!

Thank you Mr. Chinn, I'll consider your thoughts, this seems to want color for whatever reason.

I knew I had seen a number of examples of people repeating the same picture over years. Here is one example. Here is a whole Google page of them.
