    Hiya! I'm a fairly new photographer, very new to digital. I was looking to gain some insight from fellow photographers. I mostly enjoy black and white work, but I have been trying out color pieces as well. Any tips, criticism, feedback, suggestions will be greatly appreciated. :)

    I've been using multi exposures, mirroring and taking photographs of natural objects for more textural, ethereal pieces. I love the idea of creating surreal, believable spaces. Please let me know what you think. Thank you so much in advanced!

    Welcome to the Forums. Somewhere around here I started a thread "Abstract?Minimalism" you should enjoy.

    Your first image grabbed my attention, I love it. I think you nailed the contrast and hit that shutter at just the right time of day. Groovy. The 4th image is interesting with texture and color. I want to like the last one, the portrait. I do like the muted color and the overlay of water but her pose and expression doesn't fit for me.

    Great first post!

    I too like the first one, nice flow to it.
    The rest not really interesting

    You have a good eye. You will do just fine. I agree with the others that the first one is very interesting.

    Here's a link to the thread: The Abstract/Minimalist Thread !

    Agree, I like #1, also like #5. I do agree with the pose/expression, but I like it with the processing.

    Woo hoo!! Thank you for the link.

    I greatly appreciate your taking your time to look at and respond to my post.

    As an abstract/minimal photographer is there any advice you may have for my development?
    Do you feel that textural images are a sound route? I'm looking to sell pieces to little coffee shops in the area and thought it might be more realistic to get advice from photographers before hand.

    Keep taking pictures to find your interest and to get better.

    It depends on the coffee shop, so do some research. I've been in several around me, and the photos/art on the wall is all different.

    Awesome! That's great. I'll keep at it. I love photographing the forest, moss, plants and scenery!

    Thank you! :)

    I see good eye, some raw talent and some interesting stuff. I don't agree with all your choices, but I see them as actual choices and not just random futzing around. That's important, IMO.

    I get the feeling you're going to get your legs under you fairly quickly and be pretty amazing.
