    ...I can take it!

    In fact, I know what the problems are on these photos and maybe there's some other small anomalies that a professional can point out...

    Here's what I got posted so far...

    That's all I'll post for now.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Well the only one that I really like is the 3rd one. I like how you had the camera laying on the table and how you captured everything that was around.

    Well. Lighting is plain horrible in the first two and the first has camera shake on top of it. So in my book that one would be a total blooper and would not even survive my first glance after it got uploaded into the computer (might not even have survived my first chimping).
    The same might possibly apply to the second, though that is marginally better.
    Actually, and in that I concur with oldnavy here, only Photo 3 has some appeal of its own, though I would crop that one a little from the left and bottom. I think.

    Im going to be honest.
    I didnt like any of your photographs due to the camera shake and general composition apart from the third one which had a nice effect of a low angle and a wide span of view.

    Are you using an slr or a point and click because they appear to be quite rushed imo.

    dont give up. keep practicing and experimenting and i look forward to seeing what you can do.

    Josh.

    Well, it happens to be a Fujifilm Finepix E510 which has produced some quality pics for me in the past.

    I do appreciate the honesty and I was pretty aware of some of the flaws of these photos.

    I am going to use a little humor.. here.. only because you said..I can take it. ha ha ha ROFLMAO

    HERE WE GO:

    1. OVER EXPOSED, OUT OF FOCUS, never should have been presented.
    change your shirt, use downey fabric softner to get rid of wrinkles
    image is too yellow by +25 or more. Quit smoking pot!

    2. NOW I KNOW YOUR SMOKING POT.. and you have to learn about
    depth of field. and use a tripod for crisp sharp images.

    3. Standing, applauding, clapping and cheering. FANTASTIC JOB
    right on!! I would have taken out (cropped) each edge right
    &left.. too distracing. AWESOME IMAGE DUDE. (CLASSIC)!

    4. Great color, I am glad you have a coke in front of you.

    I am a professional .. and heed this advice.. be careful of what you show people, your images always reflect who you are.

    so don't rush. practice practice practice.. I like what I have seen of your imagination. but I did not like the way you rush. slow down and take the time to think. When you show an image of yourself or your work. YOU are revealing your personality to a TRAINED EYE. I see lots of promise, I am
    glad you are young, now practice practice practice. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY.! THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS.. to experience!...I was only joking about the POT.. no I wasn't. but really.!

    David, That is my name also! ha ha ha

    Once a few years ago, a woman took me to view her husbands work.

    HE ACTUALLY WENT TO RUSSIA with a camera! big deal.. when I went into that exhibit and looked at 25 different color images. i turned around and she had a big smile on her face and she asked, what do you think of his work?

    25 different images. of a person or different person in front of a brick wall.


    I Looked at her. and said these words.. your husband smokes pot. he has no imagination and when you have sex. it is over in less than 5 mnutes.

    she said.. "how did you know" !!

    it was THAT obvious!

    Actually I don't smoke pot! Well... yes... yes I do! LOL - J/K

    That's my take on a line from The Devil's Rejects where there were two members of the Banjo Brothers (a fictional band in the movie, who the actors involved were Geoffrey Lewis and Brian Posehn). Brian says to Geoffrey that he had done some research on becoming a rodeo clown and Geoffrey asks him if he's been smoking pot and Brian says NO, well YES!

    I guarantee you that I wasn't smoking pot when I snapped these photos. I used to, but I don't anymore. Although I might have been half awake when I took those pictures.

    Anyway, I do have more links to pictures that I just uploaded...

    Check them out...
