    Hey guys, looking for some feedback on a handful of my pics from my second outing. I had joined a Photography Walking Tour here in Vancouver, BC to learn a bit about photography and my camera. Please don't hold back!

    I won't comment on anything specifically, but on the images as a whole. I really like the colors, kinda gives it that somewhat old school look. Street photography is really about a couple of things. Composition and emotion. You want to convey a feeling to people. Composition is very important. Pay attention to where things are in the frame, and how they interact with other objects in the frame. Using Pic # 3 as an example, more than half the frame is filled with brick wall, then, what I see as the subject (the boot) is cut off. This may have been stronger in a horizontal orientation, or moved over to the right some, at least so the boot is int he frame with some breathing room.

    I really like the last one, but I think it would have been stronger if you were physically moved over to the right more in order to seperate the man from the clock some. As it is, in order to properly compose the clock, you have to put the man right in the middle of the frame, which hinders the composition, I think.

    Ok, I lied about not commenting on any photograph individually. I hope I helped anyway.

    Yeah, i can see what you are saying. Looking back at the #3 I kind of wish i would have gotten rid of some of the clutter at the bottom as well. I've had a habit of cutting off parts of the subject in the past with the impression that it didn't really take away from the shot, but this is the second time i've had feedback about it so i think i should start keeping this in mind.

    I like the colors and texture in #1, but the other three crop part of the subject.

    #3 is interesting in that it could have been a "natural diptych" if it was framed and exposed better. Using a larger aperture would have helped throw the background out of focus, too. I like how the sign and the boot are on opposite diagonal lines.

    #1's ok but seems too green.
    I like #2 but why not whole sign.
    #3 No.
    #4's the best imo. I kinda want the whole lamp post in the picture though.

    4 is definitely my favorite. I too would like to see the whole lamp post in the shot. But also, there is a boy in the right of the frame...I wish he was a touch more prominent...something about time, the old man and the young man....just seems neat.

    I like where you're going with that idea. Actually in the original he was more in the shot but there was also people immediately to the right that i ended up cropping out due to clutter. Appreciate the feedback!
