I hope you like them, but any feedback will be welcome.

You can find the high resolution version of these pictures (and many more) in my website: http://www.laurayluis.com

klax,

I see this is your first post. Welcome to the critique section. Just as a reminder it is best to post 1 image at a time to make it easier to critique photographs.

Of the ones you posted number 1 is the best. The colors are great and the compostion is good. I would suggest you make the image to have a straight horizontal horizon though.

Welcome to the forum.

Shot three does it for me, it's almost perfect in fact.

If the horizontial bridge section of the two buildings was straight and the two towers centered slightly better, I would have this as a largeprint on my wall.

It is a very beautiful building, can I ask what building it is please?

I just checked out your on line studio. Wow, you sure travel a lot.

I noticed you have a shot called Vista 1 veces in the Malaysia section.

Can I ask why you didn't post that shot in here, it is visually stunning.

What can one say, other than excellent, I like them all very good exposure.

@nelmr

you are right... this is my first post and I didn't know about the "only 1-picture" rule... sorry about that.

I will try to make the horizon look more horizontal although I have a problem on deciding which line should be the horizon in this picture... any suggestion?

@kung-fu-alien

thanks a lot for your feedback !!! I will work on the 3rd picture, making the bridge look horizontal, and also trying to make it more symmetric.

The building is the Petronas Twin Towers, which are located in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). I have more pictures of them in my website (laurayluis.com).

Regarding the shot "Vista 1 veces"... we have a language problem here... "Vista 1 veces" means "1 view" so it's not the name of the picture (you can choose your language in the bottom of each page).

May you click on that picture and send me a link to it? Or even better, may you send me the name of the file (under "Filename:" if you select English or "Nombre del fichero:" if you stick to Spanish)?

@alex james

Thanks a lot !!!


Finally, let me share with you another picture. In this case is a panoramic picture made up by combining several individual pictures.

The place is the "Luna Bar", which is a chill-out pub located in the top floor of a Kuala Lumpur hotel.

It is a hard image to find the horizon. But you could align it so that the vertical parts of the building are straight and this should fix the slight lean to the left. If using Adobe Photoshop an arbitray rotate of about 1.3 should solve the tilt for you.

Beautiful !!!

The colours are amazing, specially the blue lighting of the bar.

Oh how I wish I had the chance to photograph a place like this.

Thanks for the good feedback so far.

Two more pictures from Brunei that I took last week and I think they look quite good.

BTW the girl in both pictures is my wife.

You can see these pictures in high resolution in my website http://www.laurayluis.com (see URL below each picture).
