    1. Boring & dull

    2. Pretty neat :cool: I like it. Some vignetting might make it even neater

    3. Not an interesting subject, and the blurry foreground is not making it better. Snapshot.

    4. Looks a bit oversharparend, Im not sure tohugh.

    5. Nice, but should've taken it at sunset.

    6. I like the pp and the angle but the subject is pointless

    7. Snapshot

    8. Would've prefered it with the crossroads in the middle. Needs pp. Also the blur on the right hand side bothers me.

    9. Nice, just needs more pp. It's kinda pale

    10. Alright, but nothing exciting.

    11. Sweet. Best one IMO.

    interesting take, they do look lonely and good catch on 3, it was taken from a moving car.
    thanks


    :)

    :)

    Moving Car might have to do w/ the blurriness...i just pointed the camera out the window and thats what came out.

    It was a preset I used, i didn't check if it sharpened the picture.


    :)

    I thought the winding side walkign leading to the top of the picture and almost out of the frame would point at something ? :dunno: Would an empty bench at the top of the side walk filled the picture w/ a subject?

    I actually waited for the plane to come into the frame before i snapped the picture. I'm not sure what makes it a snapshot? :hs:

    It was taken through the plane window which was full of smudge. I'll see if i have enough space on the side to center the crossroad.

    Again, the plane window and there was alot of haze, i'll try to saturate it a bit.

    :)

    :)


    thanks for taking time to look through them
    :wiggle:

    P&S'y means it lacks a focus in the picture, doesn't seem well positioned or just kind of random, nothing pops out, it just...is. The bridge picture and highway shots from the air are the best example.

    That bridge picture would be cool by itself if the sky wasn't so blown out and there were no other cars on the bridge. A lot of cool shots are ruined by day-to-day stuff being in a picture. You might snap off a sweet picture of a statue or something but there's a fat guy picking his nose in the lower corner of the shot.

    Hope that helps some.

    My sister once told me that one of the main differences between a snapshot and a professional grade photo is forethought.
