Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Re: 8th ave. candy store

Looks very inviting but what candy store wouldn't :-)
I find the left side of the shot a bit distracting from the main subject particularly that huge letter 'A'
I would love to see a shot tighter on the candy store window showing off the vibrant colours and shapes etc of the packaging.

I agree with Pops about the tighter crop - presumably that's a Pizza parlour next door?

The colours are vibrant and that door does look inviting!

Re: 8th ave. candy store

Much better - my eye was immediately drawn through that door to the goodies beyond (must resist..... )

Re: 8th ave. candy store

I like the second photograph. The eye falls immediately on the door, and then across the window. It makes me want to look inside. I wonder if a subtle colour boost would enliven it even more? I like the reflected colours in the grating on the pavement, and I am left wondering if the people on the right have just left the shop. For all it is quite a dark image it still feels very much full of life.
