    Hi,

    I feel like I bore everyone with my pictures from NYC but I keep posting to get positive or severe critics.

    What I love about your shots, and these in particular is how spontaneous they seem! They are these beautiful little moments you really can't plan--but you manage to really capture and compose so well.

    I think the first is just brilliant, but the color of both are striking IMO. I don't mean to turn this into a tutorial, but how do you get colors like these (filter, enhancement, etc.)?

    Cheers :sillysmi:

    The taxi in the second one distracts me for some reason,
    But I really like the first one.
    The angles and proportion of the walls and that arrow, the light on the floor up to the mans perfectly in step position.

    I really, really, really, like the second one. There's just something about it... I don't know. The guy's expression, the busy-ness, the colors, the composition, the DOF, just everything. Wow Mat-- great job. This may be my favorite out of all of yours so far. :)

    (As for the first one, it's nice, but lacks something.)

    As a second thought, I seem to be the only one who likes the second one... hmm. :p

    Nabero thanks for giving your opinion :wink:

    To get such Color:

    1/ I never use filter
    2/ I use photoshop or DIgital Photo Professionnal and modify the curves of Red, Green and Blue one by one up to the time I like the result. Most of the time I reduce red in dark luminosity and increase green. You should try it is very simple but if you mess it can really look ugly :D

    The first shot is great, I love it. Really good composition, it just kinda make you laugh when you see it. Good Job. I don't like the taxi in the second shot, but I like the face in the poster and the guy next to it though.

    schumonbike: thanks for comment. You know what I did not laugh during shoot :D , because it was very quick. What I did is that I choosed this place for colour and indication, and stayed like this shooting during 10 min when people where passing... finally this man passed alone but it depends on him too :wink:

    cherrymoose: Thank you and I am happy you like 2 one. In fact without the taxi the picture looks empty and is worst , but I can understand thta some people fin dit distracting

    newmrdmike, jtice, thanks :wink:

    Mat

    I like the first one, its put together well and the second one looks great at first then I see that guy on the right. LOL!!! I am still laughing out loud at that picture. I would crop him out and it should look a bit better.

    I like them both. The taxi makes the second shot, in my opinion.

    Great work on both.
