    Some shots from a get together of a couple of photographers. Trying to do something a little different, as photography ruts are the worst.

    So these are all pretty different from eachother.

    C&C greatly appreciated!

    3. Are the highlights way too hot/blown out in this shot for it to work?

    I like #'s 1 and 2. The highlights are fine in #3, though I don't care for the shot. Pretty good? Yes. Unique? No.

    i like 3 with tighter crop maybe. I cant see 4 because it is blocked. I like no. 1 the best.

    ---How exactly are you envisioning the crop for number 3? A square crop, or just taking out some of the negative space at the top?

    it is blocked by my company server. It is probably photobucket. Sorry I was not being clear. Now I cant see any of them LOL. Other people could see it, just not me.

    try cropping it same ratio but leave the left brick wall out. I also find it interesting how #1 has ONE on the photo (bottom right).

    I really like 1 and 2, specifically number 2. Feels almost like shes in a magical land =) #3 Im just not feeling the dark dark colors, Good photo, just not my type. Number 4, I like the effect you did on it, but it just doesn't jump out at me.
    All in all I think you did a good job though =)

    Love number 2.

    Number 3 has a very desolate feeling to it and I am digging it as well.
