Just some photos I shot while back home on spring break
My response to these is the same as my response before.
I can't pick out what you thought was interesting or unique that you wanted to show the viewer.
I think there might be something interesting in the last one. Is it cropped to bring out what you wanted? Does it work better in color? Or would a black and white treatment emphasize the elements that caught your eye? I don't get the point of #1 or #3 at all, but I think the woman with the dog(?) might have been a keeper if you framed it to show the scene with the pet, and not have lost some of her feet. Are you shooting too quickly? Not comfortable being that close to strangers? Maybe a longer lens would allow you the time to compose the photo you want to find in the scene. I find a wide angle useful, because I don't have to be pointing at the subject. Also, the articulating screen is often useful, as I can be looking away from the subject while the lens is pointed at them.
