    I would like brutal honesty!! I am newer to the photography scene and I took these photos one day while wondering through Chicago. I would greatly appriciate it if you would comment/critique or anything about these.

    I tried to take the photos of each sculpture in a way that portrayed it with feelings based on the lighting that was existing and its surroundings.

    Thanks for the help!

    they all quite good, i only have a problem with the 4th one, you probably should have taken it with the statue in the right of the frame instead of the left

    there are quite a few things wrong with this post :mrgreen: The critique forum is meant to be a place where people can hammer out the problems with their pictures. As a result the staff here asks to only post 1 picture and to ask about a specific problem you are having such as how to crop, getting enough range to expose everything properly, asking if certain elements are distracting... things like that.

    Another thing that will help you out is to put the actual pictures in your post instead of links. This will cause more people to look at it and as a result you will get more feedback.



    With all that being said, number 2 could seriously benefit from some fill flash. Too much detail is missing for me to really enjoy the picture. I like the lighting in number 5 and as mentioned before, number 5 would have benefited being shot with abe facing the open space instead of the edge of the frame.
