    To days Sparrow

    Wow Scenario, heck of a shot I don't shoot birds very often as it seems too hard, did you set up a flash and wait for it?

    Brugge Windmill

    The second shot for sure. The first is too centered, but the 2nd has nice leading lines and interesting people. This area would look nice when the weather produces a nice, dramatic sky. But then you would have to worry about being hit my lightning , so don't do that. GB
  3. Nice place. From a photography perspective, I like the top part of the image but feel the stark off white floor at the bottom overwhelms it. I am not sure what you could have done to change that, though. GB

    I Could Live Here

    Looks like California both in view and home style. I like the glass walls, though one might need shades when the sun gets bright (or if you just want a little privacy). Nice photography too.
  5. Mike it is OK for what it is, but I find this photo lacks creative or technical composition and a human connection. Try to get the people interacting w/ each other (or with a doggie). Also, try a different angle, low or high. I heard at a presentation the problem with nearly every photo having the 5 foot high look, which is monotonous. Help this helps, Gb

    Swimming Pigs

    Fun shots. Hippos are goofy looking, and if I did not know better they would seem to be the timid kind (guess not). Not saying that you should necessarily try this, but getting one to charge towards the camera would be a great shot. You could have a getaway vehicle all ready to go.

    Cherry blossom?

    I agree that the image is flat. I think the suggestions made by Dallas are good. I would also expt with different compositions, as the overall shape of the bunch could be better. Try cropping in and see what you get. There may be a few nice abstracts waiting to be had. Gb

    Cerrado sky

    Very nice. The trees almost look like they're toys. There are multiple planes (not the flying kind) in the shot, and I think that's a good thing. Good capture overall. Gb

    Amazing that he sat down so close to you. I like the bokah and the shallow DOF. The direction he's looking is good, makes it seem like he was posing for you ("turn towards your left, I think your right side profile would be ideal.."). I would clone out that strand of grass that's intersecting his jaw. Gb
  10. The trees are interesting, especially the roots. But the image's processing is too extreme for me; it looks like it was over-sharpened, causing the pixels to look shiny.

    The Wedding Party

    It shows how sharp your camera and lens are, that is for sure! Interesting angle on them, too, like they're on the edge. I really like the blurred out background. The overall color works for me. The thing that makes it less than great is their expressions, however. They seem unhappy, or bored (maybe it was a boring pt of the wedding?). It is still an interesting shot, but more of a candid capture.
  12. They are all nice, but photographically I would avoid the straight down angle. I don't know why but it hurts a shot (same goes with flowers). The last 3 are the best IMO but number 3 is better and my favorite because it's angle is not so flat. Gb

    Berlin Wall Sections

    Mike, I like the pix of the wall esp the one with graffiti. I've been to Berlin when the city was still divided, including the east side. I have pix, will have to dig them up. I recall how there were many checkpoints, not just charlie. I can't recall which one we passed through, it was on a bus and you were prohibited from taking photographs while passing through. I remember the east being horrible looking, though from what I heard, East Berlin was considered far ahead of many other communist block countries.

    Where is it? It reminds me of watching an old movie, or reading a history book. The person walking in modern clothing is a bit of a disappointment however: would rather that person be wearing older garb. The black and white definitely over the color. There is something about B&W in city shots, editorials, models, etc. Gb

    Purple & Green

    The color combination really works The detail is amazing also. Composition-wise it is a bit lacking, but I'm not sure there is much you could have done about it. If you moved in to compose just a few flowers it may have been compositionally stronger, but then you would have lost the nice effect of the big picture. GB
