    I really enjoy your creative photos. You have a great sense of unique style that a lot of people lack. For instance #4 - its crooked..crowded..AND GORGEOUS! I see that in a lot of your photography, is this a personal choice? Your color, some may not enjoy, but I really take a liking to. #2 doesn't seem to fit into these particular set of photos, though. Same as your last thread. You had one boring and the rest were very creative and unique (sorry to keep using those words, but they fit you). You are very good at the building/street shots. Now Im just rambling but very very good photos.

    I never really noticed how much of my pictures actually have that crookedness, but i see you're right. Originally it wasn't intentional but i ultimately left it in when i could have straightened it so i could give it a bit of a unique perspective to it. When i look at them all side-by-side like this it does look a little weird.

    I love the lines in your pictures! The first one, the mirrored window seems to create motion since it's on a different plane. I adore the photo of the mouse... but is it on a leash? It looks like it to me! Lol! I love the colors in the last one, and combined with the other elements the above poster mentioned (crooked and crowded) it really does for a unique and artistic approach.

    I don't know a whole lot about photography (yet) but your sense of structure and capturing different planes and colors really appeals to me!

    I really like all the shots. Pretty creative ideas.

    If the tattoo is the main subject of #2 than good job, if you want it to be the face, might want to lighten the right side up a bit.

    If you're talented enough to edit out the leash on #3 this would be an excellent shot. I still really like it because it took a minute before I saw the farret. The leash just makes it obvious that he's under control, without it it would bring a bit of mischief to the pic.

    Overall, pretty good shot, and excellent job on being creative! Keep shooting!

    Definitely was trying to focus on the henna tattoo and work with the browns. I'll have to see what i can do with the leash, now I'm curious if i can pull it off.

    Good shot on the tattoo then, I really like it. It's possible to take the leash out. Where it goes over the stone might give you some problems since that area is more in focus than the grass. I'm pretty new to the editing stuff so there might be a better way to do it, but I'd try to zoom in pretty good and use a clone brush.

    Exactly what I was talking about. Now it's a neat picture from a cool angle and then you notice the farret and it's a neat little suprise.
