    Alright, so first post on this forum, thought I'd start off with a picture from my last roll of film

    [​IMG]

    And a self-portrait I thought was pretty spiffy:

    Hey Nik-e welcome to the forum.

    I like your photos. The silhouette is really cool. I find a lot of silhouetted photos have backgrounds that are far too bright and sometimes distracting. In this photo the background has a mellow feel to it and you aren’t distracted by it.

    Welcome to the forum Nik-e. First is good but the umbrella seems awfully blurred on the left side while the right is in focus.

    Make sure and post your photo to the self portrait thread too :)

    The city lights, if that's what they are, look amazing. Must agree the umrella looks a bit blurred. Still a good shot though. Oh yeah, welcome to the forum :wink:

    I didnt even notice the umbrella was fuzzy until you guys pointed it out. Now its driving me crazy.

    Guess I'll have to head back up there and try again. Maybe on a day its clear so the city lights are more visably city lights :)

    Thus the curse of the critique. The silver lining? It will make you better.

    Another lesson to be learned here is don't point out your own mistakes in photos you are showing to clients, etc... If you don't tell them, they'll probably never know. However, if you point out even small flaws they will fixate on them.

    Im from the part of Earth known as Vancouver, BC. Don't really know where most of the people on the forum are located, so maybe I'll add the Canada.

    Most of our sunsets look absolutly nothing like that. That was just a once in a life time thing, during which I grabbed a camera.

    Most of the pictures on that site are just snapshots of friends and stuff, I'll get some more 'artsy' photography up there soon!

    greetings nik-e,

    cheers for sharing your photos.

    the first shot is really cool - i've think you've heard the comments about being blurry, but the compostition is really cool! Where is it? What camera do you use?

    The self portrait is pretty cool, aside from the fact the subject is attractive, its a very interesting shot. How did you take how and did you light yourself. Is it photoshopped?

    And how long ya been playing the guitar?

    Welcome and thanks for sharing....


    You are off to a good start. While I don't particularly care for your self portrait style I do like the silhouette. I did notice the imbrella but the lines around the person is also very sharp almost making it appear superimposed.
