    Hi everyone!

    I need your help! I'm entering an exhibition entitled "Korea Through the Eyes of Foreigners." I will have space for 3 or 4 pieces. One of those is going to be the startrails over the golden temple...but I'd like to get your input as to what other photos (of Korea...most of them are captioned/labelled as such) you think would be worthy...all of them can be found here:


    Thank you!! :)

    I like the serenity of the silhouette of the man on the bench.

    Thank you so much, I really appreciate your compliment!! :) Sadly, the girl with the cellphone was in Hong Kong. :(

    Thanks very much, that was one of my first real shots with the Olympus 45mm! :) Unfortunately, it's in Switzerland haha.

    But please keep the suggestions coming, even if they're the wrong country, I appreciate knowing what people like and don't like...the reason I'm asking for input is because I'm horrible with this haha...the stuff I think will be popular are duds, and the photos I think are barely worth uploading people end up really liking haha.

    I like 7204. It is of a man standing in the sun surrounded by shade - presumably catching some rays to stay warm. Now I live in Asia and what I usually see the opposite - people standing in the shade to avoid the sun.

    Really great shots... it may be a bit easier to get feedback if you posted images to this thread of the 10 or so you were torn between, as there are really a ton of great photographs here and the other 2-3 would really depend on the direction you were planning to go. Of the first group in your photostream, I would suggest the following... but then again given the theme "Korea Through the Eyes of Foreigners", some of those great street shots may be better...

    This is why I love this message board...so much awesome, positive feedback!!!

    Thank you very much!! :)

    Thanks! That was when I was first starting to get into street photography! It was a chilly day (near freezing) in Busan! :)

    Thanks very much!! :)

    Thank you...and yeah, you're right it would be easier if I narrowed it down, the problem is (and what I was trying to avoid) is that the stuff I think is good, others are meh about, and the stuff I think is barely worth posting, others think is great, so I was trying to take out as much of my influence as possible. What I'm going to do is when I do narrow it down to 5-6 that I like, post it again (either here, or on my Facebook page) and get people to vote on the 3 they like most, and go with that. That way it's really a collaboration between what I like and what people like...it's an exhibit, and I know I'm supposed to express myself, but I also want to show people what they will be pleased to see! :)
