Hi,

Its been a while since I have put up some photos for C&C but if you have a few minutes I would like to request feedback on the following series:-

http://www.walkerphoto​.co.uk/London/index.ht​mlexternal link

This is the first time I have put myself out to ask many complete strangers if I could take their picture and I had a blast. I dont get to London very often but was determined to do something different on this visit.

It was a real rush and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The series is a bit quirky but hopefully the titles help a little.

Please let me know what you think.

In particular:
Do they hold together?
Any particular favourites?
Any particular hates?
Ia there something missing?
Any other comment you would like to make?

Please be honest as I really want to improve in this new area for me.

Thanks for your itme

Chris

Overall, they are nice shots. But, in most of them, I think you show too much empty foreground, too much sidewalk, concrete or asphalt and chop off the tops of trees and buildings in favor of the nothingness of the foreground. I'm no expert myself, but I read that the foreground should have something of interest in it, and it's one of the few rules of photography that I agree with totally. For instance, the one where you cut off the people at the waist has the best feel to it. :)

Hi Mitch,

thanks for that, I will definatly look again at the cropping, mabe a square aspect will help rather than sticking to the original for most of them,

thanks again.

You might also try a 16:9 ratio, like for a wide monitor size. I use that every now and then, and sometimes it works very well. :)
