    I love the photo of the sleeping passengers; any of them catch you photographing them?
    Nice work.

    That's the beauty of the electronic shutter on the G5, they didn't know I was shooting them.

    Graet set, my favourite is the cable car going over the traffic and the stretched limo underneath a real juxtaposition of long modes of transport.

    Nice set overall. I do find your compositions a little bit too centered though. Also, try adjusting your exposure and contrast levels, especially if you want to do black and white. Most of these are a bit flat. Increasing those levels will give you that extra pop. That last shot of the fense jumps out and seems most popular. Why? because it has great contrast and good composition.

    Keep it up and hope to see more! I doubt you'll have a hard time finding interesting subjects in NYC. :wink:

    Thanks for the feedback. I just did some research on tweaking the contrast in post and will give it a shot. Also need to get more comfortable using the rule of thirds but I know I will get there.
