    a. there is a photography forum
    b. I'm not a big fan of any of these pictures. Any pictures of your 'secret life' would say 'i look at clouds', 'I go to the track', 'I ride the subway', or 'I hang out with girls'. None of that really illustrates how you are 'learning'/or becoming part of the culture (as the prompt suggests). The closest I would say would be the subway.
    c. The dorms and the amusement park pictures are decent, but that seems to be because you had a good vantage point, not because of skill. The dorm picture at least has a fairly unique angle, the colors are interesting, and the high contrast.
    d. One good thing is that your pictures are not so culture rich that they come of cliche, or cheesy. But you may want to add something (other than people) from the country.

    Personally, I would say try a few more pictures before submitting them.

    Holy shit those look like nice dormitories :eek3: You guys get balconies? DAMN!

    Halloween: I don't recognize any of the costumes - are you guys HKpop stars or something?

    Anyway, definitely pick the dorms. The cloud is cool, too. It's not necessarily amazing photography, but it's an awesome picture because the cloud is bad ass.

    Not trying to be a bitch, just being honest....None of those are great :sad2: #4 is at least interesting enough to be the choice of the first 4, but neither of the last 2 are any good. I'd really take a look at all your photos again to make sure there aren't better pictures that more exemplify what the photo contest wants.

    .

    :hs:

    Sadly I feel the same way, although the one with the roller coaster had what looked to be an amazing opportunity for a great shot.

    the roller coaster track mirrors the little island/mountain. even though it wasn't captured so well, thats pretty much the only neat thing in this 6 picture portfolio. these look like pictures that you took while you were dicking around drunk with your friends. you're not going to win a contest with them.

    Amusement park if I had to pick. I'm just glad you didn't jump on the HDR bandwagon.

    That cloud isn't unique, imho.

    I am surprised I am the ONLY vote for horse track, oh well ;). Good luck.

    thanks for the input

    jbunni: i know theres a photography forum, they're too pro for me and would rip me apart :rofl:

    jimeigh: great crop on the amusement park photo, thanks :)

    HDR Bandwagon?

    i didn't take these thinking there was going to be a photo contest, kinda just submitting to submit since the opportunity arose.

    i have a shit ton of pictures to look through.

    what kind of pictures would you guys recommend for the "secret life" category? like scenario-wise.

    as far as landscapes go, these are pretty much my best,

    gotcha. well if you ever do this again and submit things to a contest, the thing with that cloud picture is that, if the picture's supposed to be about the clouds (or landscape, etc) what you don't want is for half the picture to be of some dude lookin like, "HOLY SHIT, LOOK AT THAT FUCKIN CLOUD!"

    just show the cloud (or landscape) and focus on good composition.

    99% are tacky as shit. Oh hey, let's make every god damned picture look like Half Life 2. Now the realtors in my city are starting to put their listings in this format.
