    the Very Old Jaguar lot in town... the inside of the building is old magazines and local newspapers all over. A "back to the future" car in the showroom that looked brand new. Some other immaculate black car. Walked around the side of the building and there was a man working on another. And the side was a garage with close to 20 other cars in it that were also very very nice.

    this man was playing christmas music with a harmonica. It was kinda nice, we don't get that often in my small town. The picture doesn't show him well because of the harsh backlight but he had SWEET sunglasses!

    Gotta go with fmw, great composition. I do like number 2 for that reason, but also the humorous aspect. A while ago I saw a really engaging image of a ripped and dilapidated sofa which was just sat in the middle of a run down, graffiti'd street, and the wrecked car and weeds in your image, together with the overall tone, reminded me a lot of it. Nice work.

    Your Photo 1 could have been high up on top of the list of favourites from these if only it were a bit sharper and clearer and not so noisy. I like your play with shapes and forms, giving this upward view of the tall bank building a decidedly abstract look, but I miss the crispness in this one.

    No. 2 is really funny, and that alone helps this photo to be a "winner" for many, as does the light and the colours, I say. The diagonal shadows and the way this sidelight brings out every detail of the bricks are really good.

    I like the idea of your Photo 6, too. Good eye again for graphics and lines and shapes ... but there has been a similar photo about taken by Alex_B ... and I am sorry to say so but his was just a tad better ... but then how can you help barrel distortion? I can't either and would always also get this degree of distortion in my pics. :(

    The chain may be "cliché" by now, but the concept will always be good and you composed your frame well and chose a REALLY narrow DOF ... what was your aparture for that one?

    thanks again for all your replys again!
    ~fmw- never knew it was graphic design, kinda cool thanks!
    ~lafoto- sad thing about my shoot all day was i forgot to check my iso and i was at 1600... big bummer i must say. and for the chain it was at 5.6 i think the lowest the lens i had would let me go. for number 6 i had actually seen a bunch over the time i have browsed here that were similar that is why i even noticed it and tried it.
    thanks again everyone!
