    Here are a couple of shot's i took in New york while on vacation last week. I know i missed focus on some of them, ok, maybe all of them for all i know! :D But if you can critique or commment, i would appreciate it. I also know i have to straighten some out, which i will do before printing.

    They only PP i did was adjust levels and either desaturate the color or boost them. Any other advice would be much appreciated. Other than that, Enjoy! :headbang:

    i like them all but 6-10 i like 7 though.

    the ones i dont like were boring or out of focus and bad white balance

    No Shake Shack (#9)!?!?! C'mon! :playball: :lol: J/k That one is one of my favorite ones though. Even though you cant tell by the overall color of it, It was freezing that nite...yet we were sippin on milk shakes! I want to give it a more white/blue hue to it to portray the weather that nite.

    What is it about the levels on the black and whites that you dont like? If you can edit some of them so i could see what your talking about, i would really appreciate it! :thumbsup:

    I know #8 is kinda out of focus, but i liked the way it came out. Kinda surreal! Wish it could of been sharp though!

    thanks for the replies!

    1 Typical NYC shot. I would of preferred to see less of the water and background on the other side of the river and more of the city. Maybe slightly aiming downwards would help?

    2 The tilt is too much for me and I believe the focus is off as well

    3 Not enough building lights to make the shot interesting I see more dark than anything else

    4 This is a nice shot. I love the mix of colours and the detail. Doesnt seem sharp in the back / too shallow DOF? I love the building up front with the vertical lines. Would of loved a bit more of that one in the frame

    6 Nice job on the zoom pan

    7 I see you were going for streaks, but everything else inthe frame doesnt help the image. Too much foreground street, the people on the right hand side are distracting, and not enough streaks

    8 Way too over exposed for me. The branches sticking out on the sides arent pleasing and the whole shot seems out of focus

    9 Nice shot, would of liked more of the sign in the image so we can see the full name. It adds to the storytelling of the image

    I had it on a slow shutter speed zoomed in, and as soon as the picture started to record, i zoomed out to create this one.
