    #2 is my fave :) absolutely adorable :)

    As far as real C&C goes...

    the background in #5 is distracting... Too many different shapes, colors, lines, etc going on and blurred out...

    In #1, the tree limbs in the foreground are bothering me a bit as well - any chance you could try and edit them out?

    3 lacks clarity and the rest are from rather boring angles, try something a bit more edgy next time

    I think editing the branches out would be a bit tough. This picture was actually stolen through a metal fence so i was a little limited on how i could compose it, but i sorta liked the depth the branches added so decided to keep it. It's really just a decoration over the doors of a residential apartment building but i found it very cool at close up.

    iBats - i like the idea of going more edgy, but i guess i'm not very sure how to do that. Are you referring to more extreme angles or is it just the subject matter in general? How could i have approached this differently to make it more interesting? I love taking pics in this part of town since it's generally pretty gritty and would love to be able to capture that.

    1. The braches are very distracting. Angle isn't the best, but I do like the color.

    4. This is my favorite. Not enough color, but that's a good thing with this particular photo. The angle isn't boring imo. It kinda captures a different feel to it. But yea, the branches in that one is also distracting.

    They all seem over saturated to me... or is that what your're trying to do?

    Ps. I'm from Vancouver too.

    Ii guess i do like going with a bit of saturation by personal taste. Partially because i like the feel and partially just a matter of compensating for Vancouvers contstant state of over-castness.

    #1 - Try straightening a bit - Overall I love the picture, its just SLIGHTLY off.
    #2 - Love the shot.. but there is a line of some sort following the bottom of the flower that makes it all look uneven. You might be better off cropping a little tighter to make it balance.
    #3 - Love everything about it.. wouldnt change a thing
    #4 - Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.. my fave
    #5 - Boring compared to your other shots. Hair blends into the background. There is a yellow mark behind his head, try editing out, its distracting. Im not sure what I would do differently, Im just not a fan of the shot.

    In all I think they are wonderful. Even though it sounds like I might be a little harsh, its because I LOVE them and actually think they have a lot of potenital to be wonderful if (by my opinion) they arent quite there just yet! You def. have an eye for beautiful captures.
