Looking for criticism on a set

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, looking for some friendly advice. Should I be PP differently? I'm currently using the raw editor to change levels. Usually, I boost the contrast just a hair. Thanks for your replies!

Nice stuff!

The 2nd is way too hot. If there's no data to pull back via underexposing it, I'd try to think of something more artistic to do with it than leave it like it is.

The 7th seems a bit out of place (and both underexposed on the left side while overexposed on the right). Again, you may be able to do something with it, but as is I'd just pull it.

Other than that, some pretty cool stuff. It's right in the vein of the way I used to shoot -- walking around with my camera at my side, essentially 'shooting from the hip' -- and no, not medium frame, just having my camera constantly with me and borderline at the ready -- and capturing some really cool stuff.

I'm on my work monitor which I got a couple of days ago and I have no clue how good the colors are holding up, but from what I saw it looked pretty good. The composition in almost all of them was very nice. Even if there wasn't anything "interesting" going on, the way the images were taken (well presented) didn't really make me care. Good stuff!

A few of them are a little overexposed, but otherwise those are great shots

Thanks guys. I'll try not to boost the contrast so much in the future to avoid the overexposure.

Also, the shot of the building with red doors had some noticeable lens distortion and I just figured out how to fix it, straightening up the distracting lines.
