    i like your views on some of these, ie pic 3/12/13 are my favs.. i think the best one out the lot is 13 the metal building which resembles a boat of sorts :) thats a great shot in my eyes.. how long have you been at photography are you a noob/ just getting started? also how long have you had your equipments?

    very nice shots mate :)))


    edit: i dont like the cloud refection pic, stop the exposure down alittle and repost it matey, the clouds are burned out white. hope you dont mind this comment

    edit2: for the pc monitor pic, i would have used a tripod and focused on the text for the clock :)

    Unreal, the last one with the flower is my fav, that is a very good shot. Great bokeh and perfect focus. The others don't really do anything for me I'm afraid, some of them seem too cluttered, and others don't have a great perspective/composition. But keep at it! :D

    Actually i like most of them.
    There are a few weaker than the others, but most show an artistic side to you.

    So Unreal2004 can take pics of things besides Crysis :p
    You have good vibrant colors and contrast in your pics, keep at it.

    try adding a rim light, I think that would work quite well especially with the 2nd shot :)

    A rim light is placed slightly behind the model and facing towards you, this gives a wrap round effect and a rim of light around the subject.

    This gives you a bit of an idea, but not the photo i wanted to show...

    Its give more of a 3d effect and seperates your model from the background better.

    Your images are not too bad, and nice and sharp, but be careful about their eyes. Try to get them to look at the camera as that is where the focus point is on close up portraits.
    Also be careful about your PP as i can clearly see wher you have used a brush around her hair and (her) right arm on the second picture mainly, but on the first too.

    Your 4th picture reminds me I did similar plants some time ago:

    What was the lens you were using?? I find the bokeh very cool, maybe I'll buy some new lens this summer....

    Pretty much what PCthug said :)

    It would give an effect sort of like this:

    except there would be other lights of course, not just the rim as in the photo I just posted.
