    Kinda small. Some of the pictures aren't all that sharp and devoid of interesting color. Though I like the b/w one but it would be better if if didn't have the blow outs in it.


    on a side note....i noticed your signature, the Maj. Winters quote is wrong. though he said that in both the series and in Stephen Ambrose's book he quoted it from a friend, if you listened closely, who was explaining whether he was a hero to his grandson.
    'One of the most popular quotes from Winters came from the end of "Band of Brothers". When interviewed, he quoted a letter sent to him by Mike Ranney, one of his men: "I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day, when he said; 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said, 'No, but I served in a company of heroes." ' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_D._Winters)

    I saw the pictures you posted. Very interesting. I wont say they were bad, they werent... that would be an inaccurate way of saying what I really want to say. I thought they were creative but lacking any real emotional draw. I'm not even sure what I'm trying to say really. I thought it appeared as though you enjoyed creating something visually odd rather than trying to create something photographically compelling. Anyway, not bad but I'd keep working.

    Perhaps you could expand on what sort of evaluation you want? That is, technical critique (Exposure, WB, etc), artistic (Composition, subject, etc), or ??

    The feeling I get from looking at your gallery is that you are experimenting and haven't quite found your niche yet. You've got some good, creative pictures in there, but I think the techniques you are using still need a little refining. "Ode to Tom" for instance is well composed, but the extreme contrast and loss of detail doesn't work for me. Perhaps a 'do-over'? Maybe try a half-dozen variations, post them in the general forum and get input on what people like and don't like about them. All that aside, keep working at it!
