    Why not? What's your reasoning?

    It looks nice, I especially like the subject matter. I'm a sucker for old cameras.

    I agree the crop is too tight. Rationale? It looks crowded. Good pix anyway though.

    pic #1: The center of interest is the lens and shutter, with a nice diagonal from the fold of the bellows to draw your eye toward it, and it's...well...just centerish. I would rather have it center or not at all center, and I have no issue with a photo that has a lot of black for your eye to play around in. Sort of the way a horizon at 30deg can be much less distracting than a horizon at 3deg. Also, the flip out food on the standard just hanging at the edge of the frame makes it seem crowded.

    Thanks for crop suggestion.

    Thank you!

    Thanks! Yeah, those old Agfa cameras are awesome. :thumbup:

    Agreed. Thanks for the advice. :thumbup:

    Our assignment was to use a clamp light from Walmart to achieve a dark, mysterious photo, where the subject blends into the background. I took numerous shots using a flash which I think came out better, however, that was not the assignment so I opted out of posting those shots.
