    #5 is my favorite. Old lady looks upset though. And mean too!

    some interesting shots... but too over processed for my tastes... ease off on the sharpen tool... some of them border on my pet hate of HDR

    compostionally i wouldn't have posted #2... that lamppost kills it for me

    just my opinion

    I agree with the lamp post, but I'm an HDR-loving noob :smile:

    I have stated many times on this forum that to me HDR as most people perform it is the equivalent of painting on velvet.... in other words the spawn of the devil.... but hey if t rocks your boat its fine with me :)

    I'm not a fan of obvious HDR effects either. These, of course, were not HDR, but I'll be careful with my over-processing in Silver Efex!

    I agree about the lamp post. Wish it hadn't been there!

    The brutal comments (as well as the compliments!)are very useful! Thanks to all!

    I really enjoyed this set of images, but can't help feeling to post-processing is a bit overdone - it has bags of initial impact, but in many ways detracts from some very strong street images especially #3 and #5

    I appreciate the comment. You are right! I need to tone this down!
