    Alright, been told by OTAP that some of my shots are too snapshootish, so I've put some more effort this time and tried to get better, clearer motives that are more interesting.

    Feedback appreciated. Cheers!

    Only 6 pics this time :hs:

    I like number 4 and number 1 would look good if you cropped in on just the garage doors and not the sky all the way to the right

    yes i was thinking the same thing...maybe not so much a pano but def cut off the top where the P sign is at and maybe on the bottom to where the metal grates are :)

    #1,2 would look better desaturated or grayscale
    3 i dont like the sign in the bottom of the frame
    4 is neat looks like the top is caving in
    5 boring
    6 agree with crop

    Your subjects are boring, imo. What's so interesting about that square building, or a dirty garage unit? # 6 is the only one I kinda think is interesting. Even the graffiti tag is bleh. Just find cooler things to shoot and I think you'll be good.

    Hmm, you might be right. It's just that this is nearby where I live so it's convenient for me, but yeah I'll look for new more interesting things to shot.

    I like pano crop B better but think it'd look even better if you cropped off above the grate instead of below it.

    A couple of those locations need a hot model or a nice car.

    Without that, they're pretty meh.

    Alright, so the motives aren't the most interesting ones. But technically the pics are alright?

    4 and 6 have potential. I'd have to play with the crop for 6 to get it where I liked it.
