    Not really diggin them. PP seems kinda "omg i got photochop and read some online tutorials", mostly too dark, the b/w conversion is just grey, and I'm never a fan of artificial and overbearing vignetting.

    Not a fan of the PP I hear. I used downloaded presets on most of them which I modified a bit.

    Anyway, here's the original straight from the cam (just resized).

    lol, nevermind.

    So what's wrong with the pics? Boring subjects?

    Personally I think both 9 & 10 are pretty cool :dunno:

    I really like 3, the perspective with all the lines and shadows is pretty sweet.

    I also like 9 a lot, I prolly woulda stepped like a few inches to the right so that the other column framing the door in the background was in the picture and then maybe lighten the shadow a touch so that you can read the In Memoriam a little easier (then probably lighten the ones on the wing so they all match on the statue)

    I mean...how dare you lol me for being married at 23...

    Can you adjust them in Lightroom or do I have to use Photoshop for that?

    lol, I didn't even notice the door until you mentioned it :o
    Lighten the shadow a touch sounds like a good idea. Thanks.

    I get the impression that OTAP think most of these pics are over-ppd, amirite?

    #1 might work better in bw, as far as #10 being fail... it has no context. The better shot, #9 gives you a sense of context and placement, where as #10 just seems to be a random shallow DoF shot of a statue, with no hint as to what or where it is. It has no emotional feeling. The mausoleum (or whatever it is) and the visible banner the angel is carrying lends a touch of placement and feeling where the full on profile shot does not.

    Some are over done, i.e. #2 you should have kept a little lighter, or gone full on B&W with it. the stark contrasts, and added vignetting makes it difficult to look at, though the composition and subject does have some interesting points. Throwing a sepia tone, or toning your pictures just for the sake of playing with PS isn't really helping your images any.

    [​IMG] just wanted to compare side by side.

    :eek3: that last one is nice... retouch the black and white, bring the blacks up a bit more perhaps, to bring up the road and it's gold. as far as #9... i'm a bigger fan of the original pp that you did.
