    I love the first one. Very well done! The second one is interesting, but I find the body in the way is a bit distracting. The 3rd is a great shot was well, man I love long exposure shots! The one in the car is interesting, but I find it a bit distracting that the car is unfocused and blurry, if you take the picture out the window, it would turn out a little better. The creek is a nice shot, very interesting angle, I am not sure if I like it or not. I didn't right away and I have gone back to it a few times and my eye is starting to enjoy it more each time I revisit it. And the last is nice, how long was the shutter open? Seems like a bit of fun there holding the kiss ;)

    thanks :)
    the 3rd one was difficult to do cause i had the tripod between my feet and i set up really quickly
    and for the last one.. the shutter was opened for 20seconds
    this one took multiple attempts.. haha

    The car shot is perfect as is. It adds a sense of perspective and direction that would be lacking if you just cut around the window.

    love the third, just find the background a bit disctracting. a total black bg would be better imho.
    the idea behind the last one is great as well, just think it could be executed better. little bit brighter, longer shadows, just thinking out loud here ...

    yeah, i know what you mean
    it was just difficult finding a flat surface for our shadows and a flat surface that was wide enough for the tripod to stand on

    thank you

    Hey, these are amaaaazing! Congrats! Let me ask you though, how did you achieve that effect in the first and second pictures? I mean, what material is that which you are using? I know it emits light but my ignorance is in fact ignorant...any enlightment is surely appreciated. :lol:

    thank you..
    we were using sparklers
    we bought them at the beach, but it was so windy that we couldnt get the lighter to stay lit
    and i had spelled my name w/ my cell phone light before and it looked cool
    so i thought it would look much cooler w/ some sparklers

    thanks and the colors definitely make the picture
