    these were some shots i believe to be worthy of posting, spent about 4 hours there so.

    The last one's a big winner imo. I love the lines - the way the curves (on right and top) contrast with the straight edges on the left - also the light/dark relationship from left to right. I think this works in b&w also. Cool architecture.

    Agreed. It's my favorite of the series as well.

    #1 I think I would like it more if the girl was not cut off on the right.

    #2 emotional, but oh the tilt.....

    #3 I like the colors and the cracks in the stucco, I wish the bottom pane wasn't so foggy. Maybe crop it just above the bottom window pane? It looked good with the "window scroll crop" method.

    #4 Interesting, and probably would have been my favorite if I hadn't seen the last one.

    not sure if i can explain this right, but #4 if I scroll up and down with the mouse it actually gives you the sensation that you are closing up to the building... something funny...

    my fav is #5 very dramatic contrast, i like it very much

    Simply outstanding for a walkabout shot in this genre.

    Same! Got a bit dizzy for a moment, pretty neat!

    I also think the last one is awesome. B&W suits it well, too.

    Thanks for the comments guys, anything you would recommend doing next time?

    also i will try and make some time to get those edits done, fixing the tilt, cropping the frame etc.

    I also love the lines and angle of this shot. Square, angluar, curved and the perspective...great shot.


    Where is that in Philly?

    Not that much to add that hasn't been said already but #5 is definitely the cream of the crop.

    Great shot.
