    I was down on southbank in london and decided to just do some candids, so these are some of the better ones. They aren't brilliant but i was to busy worrying about the people spotting me taking the photos haha

    They seem a bit more on a snapshot type of photo, as well slightly soft. Keep trying some different angles.

    I'm not a fan of the centered composed nature of the first few images. As pointed out, it gives them a quick snapshot feel.

    The only one that strikes me of interest is the last one, however a slightly lower shooting angle would help to cut out that featureless sky.

    And yes, alot of them are soft, missing some sharpness.

    Keep on shooting!

    cheers guys :) i never actually noticed that bigtwinky, about the person in the picture being centered, those were done by accident, but thanks in future i will experiment with some other techniques :)

    Try going out for the next week and all you shoot is with the Rule of Thirds.
    Then go out the next week and shoot images with only leading lines
    Then go out and look specifically for things that are symetrical

    This is how I like to go about learning something new and how to apply it. After a while, you will naturally start to look at things differently and see what works and what doesn't, what rule applies and which should be broken.
