    So here were my first attempts at some good shots. Definitely need some criticism.

    3 would be cool if the light post wasn't there. I could edit it out but you have no editing on your photos lol

    I think you should find better subject matter.

    I think they are neat concepts. The second one doesn't really do it for me. I really like the third one, but I agree with Live Free that the light needs to be cropped out. First one is an interesting look at a water fountain, and if you carry the eye for different perspectives, it will help you immensely.

    The second one doesn't really do it for me. Did you use the pop-up flash? The shadows are a little harsh, and may not be what you were going for.

    Good beginning! :thumbup:

    Yeah, I like the first one but it seems like you tried to hard to be artsy with all of them.

    I like the third. What was the point of #2?

    1 has really nice sharpness but lacks any artistic value imo, ive done the same thing just to see if it was cool lol

    3 is a nice concept and i really like the disappearing building, i think the light post gives it a reference but is at a weird angle in the photo

    These are just me getting used to the camera. None of these have artistic value to me. The Willis Tower photo was just one I snapped to show my friend while walking to Union Station in Chicago, and it turned out better than I thought.

    Sorry for the double bump, but can I get some more criticism? Appreciate it.
