    Fix the pelf horizon in #6 with PP and it'll be fucking sweet. I like that one a lot.

    I agree on #6 - first composition that caught my eye. Work the horizon and I think it'd be noice.

    crop above the far horizon and make it straight. good composition wiith the buildings drawing ur eye to the back left where it can wander back through the harbor or across the horizon


    2
    not touching with a 10 foot pole.

    personal thing, but i dislike photos of statues. kinda like the cliche i just got a dslr so here is my cat.


    4 a much better attempt at statue photography, as least it has decent lighting.

    5 im a sucker for graffiti but not that. keep in mind that if it doesnt add to the picture, it doesnt usally aid it. for example, the shopper in the back left, cards in the back right, busy pillars, fence. also, try to make sure your subject is in the light, not that shadow.

    6

    7 nice, but again work on removing distracting elements in camera (while u are taking the shot) for example, the street light on the left and the tree it illuminates
