    I decided to go for a walk downtown today and took my cameraalong with me, to get some practice in. I found these masks mounted on thewalls of several buildings as I was walking down the street. Kinda strangelooking, but interesting at the same time. Please Comment and CritiqueÂ… Allphotos where shot with my Canon T1i with my 50mm 1.8 II prime lens.

    Thanks

    I personally don't like the angles.. I do prefer #1 over the other ones.. I just feel like I'm not feeling image of the mask.

    When you post at 11pm on Sunday night.. and most people have to work on Monday.... what do you expect? Give it some time!

    These shots are basically good snapshots... focus appears good... Exposures are ok.

    Your framing needs work. Watch your backgrounds.. the pics with a corner showing and the partial shot from "across the street" just don't look good... this is distracting.

    I would suggest that you stop shooting at F1.8 until you get more experience. The DOF on most of these (on your Flickr) does not adequately cover the entire masks. Not to mention that most lenses are sharper when stopped down a stop or two.

    You've shot other person's art work with very little added to make an impact.

    Photos should show your input too.

    Like the thin depth of field...backgrounds ruin the effect.
    Next time try just a bit less extreme angle so you can keep the framing.
