    Took a couple of shots of the first day of celebrations of the Chinese New Year in Chinatown, NYC. I like how these turned out but would like to know other people's take on them, how could I am improved on them?

    #2 is great, captures the feel well. With the first, I think it could have benefitted from a little more scene awareness - the heads are chopped off and you've really got a bit too much empty space in the frame. Nice and sharp though, well exposed.

    LOL, you guys reply quick, don't you have work to do or something?! Heehee. Thanks everyone. #2 is my favourite too, although I thought maybe it was a little overexposed top left? Glad you like 'em, thanks for commenting.

    LaFoto: Chinatown is like nothing you've ever experienced before. Expect to get lost and completely confused because it's like a little warren there, but really lovely place to wander around aimlessly for hours.

    We've only got 4 days :shock:
    I think we can only take in a minute fraction of what there is to be seen in New York!
