    I've never done this before. I hooked up with like 30 or so folks from the Toronto Photo Walks group Saturday for an outing shooting graffiti in alleyways in Toronto's west end. Man did I have a good time. A bunch of us ended up at a bar in the west end afterwards. I'm a tremendously shy person so this was quite a challenge for me, but boy was it worth it. Anyway, here are some shots from the outing, plus one from the week prior.

    The post processing seems a bit overdone to me, especially #6. I really like #3 and #5, but #5 is a bit darker than I like.

    #1 doesn't do much for me. I can't see past the pp.

    #2 is another one I like. "Do you know where your children are?" sribbled on the wall with the lady carrying her kid in front of it. Ironic.

    #3 is a good shot. Well done. (I'm partial to trains.)

    #4 is another neat concept. But again, the pp is overkill for me.

    #5 I like the idea; something beautiful growing in such a desolate backdrop; but I think the over saturation of the colors is too much. Also, it looks "soft". I don't know if you did that in pp or if you missed the focus.

    #6 doesn't do much for me at all. It's got potential because of the odd chairs, but the pp is getting in the way again.

    They're good shots, but watch yourself when pp. It's really easy to go too far. Ask yourself "does this add to the image". If you don't say yes, don't do it.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, I do like to dial up the pp from time to time. I tend to go through stages. I'll keep an eye on it, thanks.
