  2. Bob,

    Looks like you are up the beach from Venice at another one of the go to Southland locations. Numbers 2, 4, 5, and 8 are great shots. Actually, #2 is a super killer shot.

  3. Thanks Ron, much appreciated. #2 is my favorite of the group. Looks like harry Potter meets Norman Rockwell ........

  4. Bob,

    In #2 the boy really takes the viewer in. Its also very hard to get creamy bokeh in a street shot.

    Nice shots. My favorite is #5.
    The background has gone over the top in #2, it does not work at all for me.
     
  11. Excellent look at SoCal. I agree with Peter on number two.
     
  12. Alan, Klaus, Alex, Peter, Samuel, thanks guys, really appreciate your input. I agree #2 looks a little un-natural with the blurred background. I really liked the boys face and found the background distracting. Might give the background a different look and see if that helps.

    Thanks again for your time ......

  13. Neat series! #8 for me...Some nice shots here...

    Cheers

    Nice shots! No. 3 is my favorite. Great timing w/ no. 8.

    Weirdly enough, in no. 2, the background took my attention away from the main subject. Also, there appears to be a weird outline around the main subject. Otherwise, great work!
     
  15. Ted,

    Thanks for looking and your comments, really appreciate you taking the time.

    Thanks Noel, much appreciated. looks like I have to go back and work on #2. The line around him is in the background, nothing I added with the PP work. May try to change the entire bg on the next attempt.

    Thanks again for your input.

    Regards,
     
  16. Thanks Dez ..... appreciate your looking.

    Best,
     
  17. I decided to re-touch photo #2 ..... hope this is better.
