    I need opinions on these photos please. Don't be afraid to tell me what I did wrong, because that's what I need. All my friends are like:
    "Oooooh... pretty. Look at this black and white picture of just one shoe I took from a chair! Deep right?!"
    I know they are a little dark and grainy, sorry =/ These were all taken with my Canon AE-1 Program. The last three were edited.

    Is that one big, long picture?

    The chalk on the sidewalk would be nice if the lighting was a bit different, but the rest don't even qualify for snapshots. Fix the lighting, focus colors, keep trying.

    Next time try to only post a few, and number them or at least seperate them.

    #1. I rather like this, 'though I would sugglest a crop (or better yet a re-shoot) to eliminate the houses in the background.

    #2. I don't much from this one; an attempt (I believe) to be artsy, but it's a little too over-exposed and soft for my taste.

    #3. A cute idea, but I think it needs to be cropped much more tightly on the subject. As well, some levels/curves adjusments to brighten the child.

    #4. This would be much stronger, IMO, without the deep shadows on either side.

    #5. As per #4; additionally, an off-camera strobe aimed from the upper LH corner of the image to the child would have made this a very strong image.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    Sorry guys. All the other threads I've used automatically put spaces between pictures, but I'll fix it.
    Thanks for the criticism and comments guys. It's helpful already :D
