    Well, I can keep on telling people what I think of their pictures, or I can join in and show some of my own.

    Here are a few I took today. The NYC Marathon passed through Brooklyn, near our house. Enjoy (if not, I always appreciate you taking the time to look at them).

    I know, some (like #8 for example) need editing, but I'm new to all this, so I don't yet know how to do that.

    Teehee, there`s some very funny participants in that NYC marathon :D (3 and 4).

    I haven't opened all the thumbnails (why did you not post the right-size photo links off Photobucket?), but I think I like how you captured the overall atmosphere/metascenes of the marathon in 6 (good DOF) and 9.

    And I like Photo 7 best here. The autumn feel given by the trees, the houses in the background, and "Jorge" sure looks like HE CAN :D.

    #6.

    This is my favorite no holds. I do wish you would have got more of the runners (still out of focus) and just that sign.

    That would even look great in black and white and the sign in color.

    Great photos though

    eh well, thanks for reviving this one. And yes, I should have looked for a better position (maybe climb a pole or something) on #6.


    Thank you for your comments.

    wow, you revived this one just to make me feel bad...lol. No just kidding, I appreciate your comments. It's the 'don't see anything interesting' bit that I can do without. As for the comments: yes, 3 is not in focus. The girl with the hat: I thougt the text did the talking (you obvioulsy don't agree, that's fine) and the colorful one, that's a blanket given to the runners. Maybe it's not clear that this a blanket, but is also shows the distance (in KM and in MI), the places, the event. A detail worth capturing, IMO.

    Hello
    Sorry, I did not want to be rude, just honnest with I feel about these pictures:wink:
    and if you read again I do not say 'don't see anything interesting'
    but 'don't see anything interesting in terms of photography' which has a complete different meaning, at least for me:er:
    I want to say you need to improve:
    - picture composition ( do not cut people like on n 4 it hurts :lol: , on n2 give some space to your runner take the picture from below with less sky, these are just small advice that with proctice enable you to improve the quality of your picture)
    - light ( to be in front of the sun like on 1)

    Pascal do you speak french it could help me to express what I want to tell you :mrgreen: ?

    Anyway happy thta you do not take my rude comment too badly, it means you are critic about your picture and that the only way to improve yourself, I think.

    Bye
    Matthieu
