I like the twist. The shot is well composed and exposure is good. Nice shot.

Here's one I grabbed last night with my EVIL little camera and new lens that came in the mail yesterday...shot with a Sony NEX-6 and a Oly PEN-F 38mm f/1.8....

Looks dramatic and daunting! I would have liked to see the statue be the main focus for the lighting though.

These never got a critique, so I'll repost..

Took these in the studio this past fall.

I'll try my best, people photography isn't my thing
The B&W adds an interesting view for the top image, yet for the bottom image, it feels like a mystery....

This is my ever dramatic Super Pug

Cool pup. It's hard to tell if the focus is good because his/her eyes are closed, but to me it looks good. Only complaint would be composition...the dog's head is really lost in the trunk of that tree.

I've started really trying to learn how to process stuff in B&W and with mixed results. If someone can give a good critique of this, what's good, what's bad, how to fix it...I'd greatly appreciate it. The shot was RAW and processed in LR4 incase you want to know...also, the sky in the corner is black because this was a night shot, pretty much dark so it was a longish exposure. I may go back and do a daytime shot soon so I can get some clouds in the shot.

I'm certainly not an expert, but I like the building in B/W. Really contrasts well between brick and mortar and the detail in the window shade. I know you gave it a certain prospective, but the angle of the building noticeable more where the a/c unit meets the side of the pic seems a little odd, but again I'm not an expert.

This is Hogwarts Castle in Universal.

Oh that is so cool. Is that the one in Orlando? My husband sold and mixed some of the paint used there.

Anywho, I love the use of Sabic setting. It makes the picture appear antique and more medieval like. The sky being straight white is so striking against everything. If you didn't say it was from Universal and for the lighting fixture, I would of thought it was a real castle somewhere.

This is one of the older photographs I took from a dog park visit on my deviantART account.

I would like this a lot more if the dogs were facing the camera..

Thanks much, forgot about the lighting fixture. And yes it's the one in Orlando.


Beautiful bird. Probably a nicer shot if the person wasn't in the background and the bird wasn't cut off.

Shot taking at the St. Louis Zoo.

it's a decent shot. my personal preference, but the chimp is a bit too centered. if it was moved slightly more over to the right, it would balance the image out. the lighting is also a bit harsh--contrast and brightness really stand out in this photo... guessing the sky was overcast?

Really nice picture, not even sure what to say... I think I might like it better without the brown thing in the background. But either way, good picture.

An attempt at a self-portrait...

Wow.. That's a cool self portrait. Light falling on your hair gave it a magical touch. Pose is nice and the "Ranch" background is also awesome. Harsh sunlight is tough to conquer. But yeah, overall, an awesome shot.

Here are some photos from my visit to Butterfly Pavillion-

Nice butterfly!!!. I love them early morning when leaves are still wed and sunlight comes from small angle.

Here is test shot with D7000 and 105 macro lens.

Focus is good, nice and sharp. Seems a little over saturated, on my screen at least.

This is a quick shot I took the other day when I got a new lens in the mail. I was just testing it out to see if it was a sharp as people say...I'm happy with it, especially considering it was MF and the first try with it.

That's a cute dog pic, show's a lot of expression. Not bad if that was taken with a GoPro.

This is just a pic I took from my hotel room in Binghamton, NY:
