But whether this "look" is better than I expect, I raise a legitimate point and I raise it only to help the photographer. Are these images very contrasty, and is that deliberate? In which case it becomes simply a matter of taste, or is the photographer unaware of how contrasty they are?
Once again - Great pictures!
No argument here. I always appreciate constructive critiques. As you say, it lets me know if my photos have any room (and they always do) for improvement. I think we're saying the same thing with different words.
Keep 'em comin'
