So, the first shot. Great shot in my opinion. I would have composed the shot a little bit different so you don't have cutted the globe on the right hand side, and not cut the building on the left hand side.
The image is also a little bit noisy... try to compensate that in your post processing.
Second shot. Awsome. This could be my wallpaper. Even though, i am not a specialist on these type of images. I cannot say if you did things good or bad. As a viewer i would say a great shot.
The only thing that strikes me is that it's a little crooked. You can see that by the windows on the right building.
Awsome. Just awsome. Nothing to say about this one. Like the splittoning. (Even though, i am not a fan of splittoning) but in this one i like it. Yellow cabs are cooool
Yeah.. well.. yeah.. well.. yeah.. how to say it.. I don't see the intrest in this one. I just don't see it. I scrolled past for the first time to be honest... i can't put my finger on it to create more intrest.... Sorry
Nice one. Like the "Vacation" feeling of this one. But!, its a little to fake looking in my opinion. And i think its because of the water which is almost green... Maybe you did something in your post processing which is causing this.. But thats a no go for me.
But again, like the "Vacation" feeling of this
Hope i am not too harsh on this one... Hope to see more of your works.
#1 = Roy is right.. Awesome shot, but the cropped-out globe is a distracting element. In or out of the shot, otherwise great exposure!
#2- I like this too, only question I would have is would I compose it differently to refine the element of the main building.
#3 - I don't need to tell you, I think you know.
#4 - I want to like this, there is a "isolation element to it" kind of shows me how hard it is to be a lone-fisherman.. It's just me, but I feel like I don't get ENOUGH of that fisherman to be drawn into that lonely vibe.
#5 - Colors are awesome. And I like where you were going with this but if I'm there I'm trying to include more of the "dock" to get more "swoosh-within-a-swoosh" rule-of-thirds stuff.. of course, I wasn't there so what do i know? Wish I WAS there, looks awesome.
Thanks for the inspiration Doctor.
