with the exception of the red boats picture, most of these are very recent.
TIA for any critiques
Very nice series you have here; I think the graininess and blur of the shots really suit these kind of street shots. Shows the gritty side of life and times on the street.
(after 70 views and 0 replies i was beginning to think im merely contributing to flooding the world with unnecessary imagery.. or something )
thanks though, i was looking forward to a "harsher" critique, i kinda feel my photography needs some direction for improvement.
personally im not fond of the grainy aspect, I focus on the fact that there are blurry smudges and white noise everywhere. I think your images have potential, but the old film kinda look just isnt my cup of tea.
was this the direct image? quite a bit of pp?
i like 3 and 7 best.
I think that sometimes they are too blurry, and the picture of someones feet does nothing for me. But I really like the feel and mood of these pictures.
The construction site and the one after it are my favorite!
1 and 2 are the money shots.
2 is my favorite of the bunch. 4 and 6 are nice, but there's so much blowout. The rest of them don't do anything for me. They definitely don't scream "street photography!" and they're kind of boring. The 1 would be much nicer if either those people weren't walking by or they weren't so blurry.
hey thanks. yea i think i need to re-practice exposure and avoid blurriness. frxnz, would you mind naming some "street photography!" photographers? i honestly dont know any off the top of my head.
though personally, im not into the whole documentive- "oh heres a crowd of protestors in the street, or heres a subway car full of unassuming passengers, or an empty subway platform, or a busy intersection full of lights and cars, or hey look at this guy in a suit walking past a scruffy homeless man..." themes.
im not trying to defend my pictures, i just prefer to go for an abstract/atmospheric aesthetic rather then clear/informative/documentive.
They mean something to you, and unless your living depends upon it that's all that matters.
