    After several months of just reading theory and little practice I got out to take some pics.

    I still yet have to practice with Flash, People and Social events in low light conditions, etc.

    Complete photos here (22)
    But here are 6 photos:
    What do you think?

    I don't like #3 & #4, but the others are interesting. Post fewer to get more detailed responses me thinks.

    Nice ones. I like #2 & #5 best, with #1 a close second. For my liking I might have cropped out the power line at the bottom of #2, but I don't think it's entirely necessary.

    your reading is paying off. I like the first 3, they may not be perfect but they show a nice eye and a consistent interest in a concept. Congrats, keep at it.

    I really like number 2. I might crop it though so that it is tall but narrow. Maybe get rid of the lighter side of the building. thought the balconies made a really cool pic. That's just me though and I still have a lot to learn.

    I like these types of city scenes--small segments of the larger whole, with a relatively narrow lens angle of view. I like the car, the building with balconies, I like the salida photo, and I also like the way you saw la luz en los dos mujeres. I think you have a good fundamental way of approaching urban landscapes; pick a small, but interesting thing, and make a photo of it.

    thank for you comments guys..

    Strange, I like #3 because it has something, like simple and meaningful at same time, and combined with colors from the 60's(the whole word was "Multicinemas" but I took just "cine" which means "Movies" or "Cinematography"... or maybe I like it because I like movies very much :p

    Lazy, Rocdoc, Hereto..
    Interesting how most of us like #2, I took it because of the contrast in the color.
    #1 is one of my favorites, because I luckly found the little car, which has the right size, and well parked in relation with the other 2 elements(door and sign) and all 3 against this strong color.The car logos suggest a utility car, in spanish so it tells something about the place, etc.

    Glad you like it, I spected to start somehow to see the photos I took in another way(or with another eye) after some time, so I'll hope to get better next time.


    Im glad some of you noticed I could have some eye or way of trying to capture things, that's important for me.

    I like the composition in #1. #2 would have been better if you had 3 full balconies, instead of cutting off part of 2, but it was still very nice.

    The rest look pretty good.
