Hi everyone. I am putting together a portfolio to show to a few art galleries in the near future. I was wondering if you could take a look at my photos and let me know what you think.

I've been lucky enough to have had four of these on exhibit in a few galleries, with another in the near future. But I am looking to build a larger portfolio for a larger exhibit.

Any and all constructive criticism is appreciated. Thanks!

PS - Not looking for a review of my host website or the layout, as neither will be the final method of display. Just the photos.

Can I take your picture? "I'll swallow your soul!" Well, my camera will at least.

I'm just a casual observer, but DANG! those look great. That's a really nice set of photos. Thanks for sharing...

I see pretty colors and photos mostly of vivid skies, some of which look to have been taken on the same day. I quite like the second shot.

I suppose different people go to galleries for different reasons. I go to be challenged, challenged to see something new, or to re-see something anew. I want to feel like some narrative is there to be traced--or I want to feel invigorated to be more active in the world somehow. I don't think I would get any of that from these photos.

I'm going to agree with Christopher. I don't see anything that says art gallery to me.

These aren't photos I'd be interested in viewing in a gallery. I want to see strong images that pull me in; images that tell their story well.
