I think the blac and white shot is a really good one. One suggestion TD, Can you re-crop and move her just a little more right or left of center? That way she won't appear posed.

Thanks for the input,I was playing around with different crops on all these images,I`ll have a go later on that re-crop Dawg.Even though I was some distance away, she never took her eyes off me, thats what I liked about the series.

It's a very good series TD. I really liked the first one too as it definitly did not look posed and the foot traffic gave it movement! You really do excellant work and are fast becoming profesional in quality and composition. One of these days I'll see one of your photo's in a magazine and be able to tell my kids ,,,I know that guy!! LOL

,just wish there was more of her in the pic.

For a second I was wondering which of those girls you meant by that:-)

Seriously, very nice shots, TD...I hope when you asked her permission you didn't tell her what the title of your post was.

Thank you for the compliments Dawg, its reassuring to know that I`m doin something right.I`ve been playing around with composition lately, and cropping, i`ve noticed you can give an ordinary image a burst of impact when selecting the right crop and composition, its that rule of thirds again.

I`ve reworked the shot, and removed the sign from the top right of the pic with the clone tool in CS,I thought it was a bit distracting.Then repositioned her slightly ( thanks Dawg).I`m pleased with the result.

I better myself everyday by reading posts and viewing pictures fromYOU people in the Kodak forum.
Photography is something that Ilove doing,It makes me look at people,objects, anything reallyfrom a different perspective.
I`m glad I found it




Thanks ,, TD

Very nice, TD. Last one is right on in my opinion. I haven't worked up to taking people shots yet, i'm a little leery about it.
