This is great. I really like how you split the image into two parts and as Luko mentioned it does have a bit of a funny quality going for it. I always think that I don't fear death as much, but I do fear growing old and not being able to do what I like...and this shot puts a nice spin on things, I think. Anyway, excellent photography from you, Peter. I think that once you started shooting film your shots are getting deeper and deeper. Well done, mate!

WOW...this is just...splendid. I really like the light you captured here, the woman's position in the frame is perfect and the smoke is the icing on the cake and finishes off the composition. Such a wonderfully peaceful scene you've captured here. I works wonderfully well and goes into my faves for sure. Well done!

Very nice B&W conversion, Luko, do you mind sharing your secret? Lovely compo as well, the foreground professor monk looking very serious indeed as his protégé looks on from the background. If you shot this as a straight portrait without the monk in the back it would have been pretty boring (now I see what you mean about heaving more stuff around the subject not just his/her face filling the entire frame). Anyway, Luko, this is most excellent and works wonderfully well. Good work.[+]

Nice shot! I really like the angle you used here...it feels like I'm shopping together with your subject. Here in China we also have these "street shops" where one can purchase a bunch of junk for a few cents...stuff that will most likely fall apart a day after you buy it. I also like how you included the Korean writing in the background as it nicely places the shot in context to the country it was taken in (plus I always like to see some sort of lettering to enhance the graphic nature of a photo). Good work, but you'll need to work on your B&W conversions...this shot looks a bit flat and a bit too digital.[+]

This is cool. The green color really makes this image pop plus the fact that you included the little kid in the frame as well (and he appears to look quite lost in all this weirdness). This must be one heck of an interesting place for photography. Good work, Gal.

Refreshing it is and that single fact makes this shot work. The ladies look interesting as well and really make the image. Your choice of flash increased the grittiness of this shot, sort of like a paparazzi close-up style where the guys get right in there to get the shot. Good work, Alex, different but good.

Alex, mate, this shot is just amazing. OK, she's your little cousin so it wasn't a decisive moment, but the idea behind the image is just great. I really like how you also included the creepy face of Mr. McD as well and the posters really make the shot. Anyway, excellent work here, Alex.

This is great. I really like the angle and all the details one can see here (like the reflection of one lady in the mirror) plus the way they all seem to be looking at the same exact spot makes the image even better. Minor nit pick being that one can see an arm poking out of the edge of the frame, but it's really minor. Good work.
