    i think it would have been nice to get some different angles and maybe not cut off the heads and the chins of all of the people
    I understand what you were trying to get with the photographs
    This looks like "People Photography" to me

    I like the series - great lighting, detail and colors - but I do wonder about your choice to cut off chins/top of heads. Was there a specific reason for this?

    Thanks for sharing!

    All look decapitated, and the catch light in the eyes are alittle annoying.

    i think some of these would be cool converted to black and white, with a contrast boost.

    like others said, not really crazy about the cut off chins and heads.

    Secondly, these photos don't tell a story, therefore, in my mind they are not photojournalism and belong in the people gallery.
