    I have so many I want to share, but i'll not be an overpowering annoyance (just yet) and start with 3.

    The first one is a streetside barber in Hanoi, Vietnam.

    The second pic was taken in a street market also in Hanoi, Vietnam

    The third pic was taken in the Por Thek Thung Foundation temple in Yaowarat, Bangkok Thailand. This is the organisation that is known as the Bangkok Bodysnatchers. I took two decent shots there, most people like the other one which I'll show later, this is the one I prefer.

    the last one is amazing!
    I'd take the vinegetting off the first two though. It's distracting and taking away from the picture.

    I like #1, would like it better with a little less vignetting, but thats just me. #3 is a great shot!! Nice work!

    Photos look really great. I like #1, but I agree with others that the vignetting isn't working for me. When I look at it, I wonder what the man is looking at, and the vignette seems to block out whatever is there... even if its nothing, with the border you can't tell...

    Cool shots. I think the vignetting is not adding anything, actually I find it more distracting than enhancing. Vignetting works best when the subject is in the middle of the frame and there is nothing of interest on the edges.

    I love the 3rd one, fantastic shot!

    I agree with the other posters that #1 has too much of a vignette. I also do not like your choice of selective coloring on #2. #3 is the best of the ones you posted. Great shot!

    Thanks, I must admit to having printed all 3 in large size and the one of the barber I chose to print without the vignetting.

    I do appreciate the comments though, especially as they were favourable about the pics, the afterwork for me is a lesser talent (which I obviously don't have...LOL) if I can take reasonable pics, I'm more than happy. This is the other pic from the Por Tek Thung Foundation temple which most people prefer. I don't, but I do like it.

    This is another market shot from Hanoi, just a bit further down from the meat woman.

    and I couldn't resist these trussed up crabs, I know they have big claws but I thought the ropes were excessive.

    Wow the with all the vegetables is a great shot. I definitely prepare the first of those two incense pictures. I reckon most people who don't know much about photography would go for the second one because of the all-elusive 'blurry background' :)
