    Hello! I'm brand new here and thought I would put together this showcase as an introduction to my photography. Any feedback would be awesome as I haven't really gotten much on any of these. For reference, I have been learning about photography as a hobby for just about a year and shoot in manual. These shots are a selection from the last few months. I shoot with a Canon 20D and a couple of different lenses.. The majority of these are with my Canon 85mm f/1.8 and I've included settings where possible (if I have them on hand, the exif is stripped on a few). They're all formatted slightly differently from different posts on my blog, so just ignore that. Obviously this is too many photos for really specific CC, but any general ideas or critique on a single photo would be great. Thank you for any feedback, and it's nice to "meet" all of you!

    wow, #10 is compelling, I love the silhouettes. They seem so odd and interesting.

    #11 is great too.

    Thank you to the three of you, I appreciate your responses!

    Any other feedback? I know I probably don't measure up to most of you, but I'm here to learn! :)

    Really nice work. I think you'll find that you most cerainly measure up. You've got a great contemporary style.

    I really like 8. I think the crop goes very well with the picture and the back round is very interesting.

    #'s 1,4,5,8,9,10,11,12 all awesome with # 5 being the best. Wish I got shots like these. I'm what you'd call an accidental photographer, I get good shots by accident mostly (ha ha). You'rs look like their on purpose with excellent subject matter and composition. The most important element of all, your shots trigger emotion. That's where the treasure is. Very good. Very good.
