    Curious Robin...An HDR by NJ

    The colors pop, the HDR was done with class, and isn't overpowering like the majority of HDR's, the DOF looks nice (although it looks fake how shallow the background is, which I assume was post), and the subject is isolated from the background nicely (albeit done by fake shallow DOF). Though the...

    Quebec Bridge (2 pics) - Special for you engineers out there!

    The softness of the water really makes the second one stand out in my opinion. Was the water really that calm or was it just from the shutter speed being slow? The only reason why I asks is because there isn't very much motion blur on the boats.

    Sunset Skate Session

    No, it was because you were the ultimate jerk on that forum, and you challenged someone way better than you to a film off. It's quite funny that you made a topic asking to get banned and are now acting as if it wasn't your fault, and nightlifemike is just abusing power.

    Sunset Skate Session

    I think the colors look great. You obviously have lighting down... just tell the kid to take the ollie to something bigger, and capture it a little bit later in the ollie when he is either leveled out or boning it out. I just think that ollies that are pointing up look funny, no offense. It's...

    Scenic Portraits

    These were for a team shoot for a local skateboard shop that I work at. This is one that more suites the skateboard theme: And here's a little design I made for the header for his page on the shop website:

    Any critique or suggestions?

    My friends *10 pics*

    Nice flicks, but you should tell your friends that smoking is incredibly harmful to their lungs.

    No, that is the original background.

    Second actual portrait attempt.

    I took a few pictures of my girlfriend for a photography assignment. This was the only one that I ended up liking: (I know she is a little dark)

    Yes,...A Sunset

    I like it, but I think it would be better if the shadows were darker. I think you should do a little levels adjesment and make the darks really dark.

    Injured bug in the ivy (9 pics)

    The dof in the first one looks fake, but it looks nice I guess.

    Happy Easter!

    Easter isn't about bunnies, it's about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Anyway, #2 is really nice.

    First studio shots.

    For the first one I used one flash, and I bounced it off the ceiling above her (I had to shoot it horizontal and then crop it, because the flash was on top of my camera, and I don't have any radio slaves or sync cords). Then for the other 2 I shot them vertical and used the thing that she is...

    First studio shots.

    Thank you, and yeah. I agree, those types of shirts tend to make women look larger than they are. I personally am not a fan of them, but I like seeing her in anything, so I didn't mind. Next time I'll try a more 3/4 shot. Thanks. And to answer your question on lighting I used one flash bounced...
