    Hey Everyone!

    I am a new member here, and i am looking for some comments and criticism. Mostly criticism though, I'm really trying to improve. These are the first photos i took with my XTI in and around Toronto. I tried to tone map some of them with a demo of photomatix, so they have a few watermarks on them. Let me know what you think.
    Thanks!

    Welcome - nice images! C&C per req:
    1. Good composition, the road runs right into the image, drawing the eye in, however the red seems a trifle over-saturated to me.
    1,2. The perspective of these doesn't really work for me. It's not square, but not exagerated enough to be artistic in my opinion.
    3. Nice capture and nice sky, a shooting position farther to the right would likely have allowed you to see a little more of the LH side which is covered by the brush.
    4. Nice - an HDR I assume?
    5. Very nice, but you have to remove that wire that runs right through the middle!

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.

    Nice shots! Tirediron's C&C was right on in my opinion. What I would add about the first image with the perspective - I think if you had lowered the camera a bit so the green beam was the top frame, allowing for more foreground, it would have really helped.

    On a totally unrelated note, were you at the district on Sunday? Did you catch any of the tunes from the Luminato Festival?

    No, sorry. Didn't end up going because of other commitments.
