    The more I looked at these, the more I like them to the point where I would rate them "really freaking cool".

    I like the PP as well, adds greatly to the overall feel of the shots.

    oh wow thanks!

    most of them are just dramatic bw, or grainy bw

    the wood ceiling has a lot of random colorefex pro and silverefex pro stuff done to it... but 95% of it is just contrast and brightness adjustments to get it kinda starbursting from the lower right. i thought it looked cool.

    i think the crazy flash self portrait was done with slow sync, and moving the camera around a lot while i spun in place, lol!

    It took me a while to figure out that one photo was shopping carts. A long while. Of course it is morning here, so I have a bit of an excuse.

  6. Really cool set of pics! BTW, don't those dirty windows wind down, or they stay up for protection? :eek:

    Great shots, the car window adds some interesting effects that make several of them particularly unique. :cool:

    a lot of the time the window reflections throw me off on the computer, i forget that the camera will actually see them! lol or mebbe i just think it magically put a polarizer on itself...? ;)

    the spots on the window added a TRUE grunge filter, non of this software PP grunge via snapseed ;) haha!

    thats analog grunge!
