With all due respect, these just don't do it for me. I'm mainly seeing tightly-cropped buildings with no real visual interest. It's difficult to critique because I don't have any bearing as to where these were shot or what else were around the buildings. I'm certainly not saying that these shots can't work, but for me I'd like to see interesting lines and angles that draw my eye to something. The 2nd and 6th shots are your strongest of this set, imo.


Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.

Thank you for your feedback. These were all taken in London last week during a photo walk in the city.

I agree with what you are saying as i did struggle to find shots where the buildings were isolated. I had so much trouble taking a picture with just the subject building in the shot. There were either lots of trees around it or parts of other buildings or in some cases road signs interfering with the shot. Since the buildings were very close to each other the only choice i had was to crop them tight to try and isolate them.

Challenge yourself, try to use those "distracting" elements to create an interesting shot. A tree by itself may be boring but when composed nicely with a building, could add some nice visual effect.

I kind of like #3, but I think it would have looked better if you shot it from a few feet more to the right, so that you'd be dead in the center. Also, you should straighten it a bit (leans to the left a little).

I really like the last one. But I would have done it in B&W or at least brighter. PP is too heavy to me there.
Anyhow I like them :-)
Thank you for sharing.

I live near London, and fwiw I quite like the shots. The distortion is always an issue, but I think it accentuates the height of the buildings. Others may disagree. Shame they ruin Leadenhall with a stupid no entry sign! Not keen on the sepia one, or the last (they are strolling out of the pic!).
