    Good effort. Number 3 (BLHM) is my favorite, although I find the out-of-kilter background a bit disconcerting. The last one doesn't work at all, IMO, with the hotel being cut off part way down, plus it's rather blurry (hand-held?).

    I like number 3 the best too, I dislike the Aquafina bottle though, it doesnt seem to belong

    The water bottle (which appears to be in the sharpest focus, BTW) doesn't bother me nearly as much as that disembodied shoulder off to the right. How about this crop (& straightening)?

    that crop feels claustrophobic to me, hands and head to close to the edge. i like the original, imo

    Okay, we'll see if anyone else weighs in. You're to be commended for a good effort in B&W.

    dinodan.. I see what you're saying. I agree with hawkeye that your crop was a little too close, but how about this... also.. what water bottle? :D

    yeah, you nailed it that time. I really like this picture, and that water bottle was just ruining the atmosphere. Good compromise on the crop as well. :thumbup:

    That picture has a lovely feel to it and looks like it could have been shot 40 years ago, or just yesterday.
