    You have a good eye, the first is good in terms of where ou stand and what you captured, I got the mood.
    The second is good in terms of the angle you captured people, that's a good eye, I like the Mercedes too, the rest of it doesn't attract my eye, and is not a distraction but seems unnecessary...
    The 3rd is one I personally like because of the beach lining up with the green space and the cell guy in the middle talking, I'd imagine what's so important in such a place to talk to someone over the cellular.
    The 4th captures the atmosphere as much as the first one
    The 5th is a great catch, I particularly like it.

    Overall, I like the way you caught these people, I like the way you put it, it's interesting, I like the colors, I like your outcome, I am not a perfectionist, I won't get technical, and I won't think of what could have been better, it's simply great that way, only the note on the burger photo.

    If these pictures didn't have titles, would they mean the same to people?
    IMO, the pictures lean much too much on the titles.

    I don't know except for the frames they kind of look llike snapshots to me. Really I even think the first one is a little offensive or at least could be taken that way.

    Again, I'm old, but I'm not seeing any focal point in these. BTW, I believe the title in the first is offensive.

    I didn't realize there were 5 photos until I went to quote.

    Anyway, rather than comment on your style; How do you see your style? What is it you are going for/ trying to accomplish or develop? Where are you wanting to go with it all?

    I believe the title on the first is offensive as well. I also am lost as to the intent of this image. I guess it could be said that it has good exposure, color and OK comp. But style? I'm sorry, I just can't pick out a theme of style from this group of images. Then again, one looking at my gallery probably can't pick a single style or theme either.

    saying the term "Asian herd" might be offensive is not PC it is just considerate. Besides it is just a stupid title for a picture.

    im trying to create the concept of looking into the picture, not so much at one.
