Good ****. But 3rd pic. Middle-left vertical elements (tower, poles etc) are all crooked and it distracts me.

I really like the first one. I like the editing you did to make it have that grainy, sort of out of focus look. Very cool.


Why don't you take a picture, it will last longer....

I like the processing of 2 and 3, but 1 is way over done. Kinda looks like you were going for the HDR look, but I think it just looks funny here. His skin is what throws it off I think

I think the processing is over done but I like the 3rd the best if the buildings were not crooked.

Processing is over the top for me in the first one. and the foreground and BG are just to busy in the last, just me. THis could be anyone as in the last you can't see his face...not a flattering pose as well?

I like all three of these and the processing is "overdone" as compared to most of the photos on this forum. I think that's why I find them interesting. It kind of fits with the urban setting. Nice job.

Okay. You are right about the subject in 3. I just wanted to encourage the creative processing.

As we all do, but it also has to showcase the subject, for me, these photos don't do him justice. There are thousands of creative plays, adding alot of contrast and tonals will give you the overdone look if you are heavy handed with them.

I like the first one, but I just can't rap my head around someone sitting out on the street with a mini-synth. It's incongruous.
