    You captures are amazing! The second photo is my favorite, you did a great job of showing the gritty reality of how disgusting humans can be.

    I really like the clouds in the 3rd photo, thats one thing i struggle with is getting good clouds. The contrast is great, as well as the overall grey tones, in all 3.

    very nice.

    These are really stark. Wow. I like them A LOT.
    I feel we see too small versions of them. I am sure they'd look great as enlargements! The second is particularly impressing. The day must have been BRILLIANT! (Well, it was, as I could tell when I first went to your site).

    I actually didn't just hit the B&W button for the 3rd pic. It's filtered B&W, so it really makes the clouds pop out
    try setting the filter on something very contrasting such as red and then do it.

    As for the 2nd picture, I took it to show the side of humans that we all pretend is not there. Our world isn't perfect, we have to make it that way
