A very bold composition Maciej, but I don't think all the elements are there...atleast from the left side. The lighting is nice, the red pole in the middle divind the photo into two frames is nice, but I feel that the left side does not compliment nor contrast your subject on the right side. Do you have any other shots from this subject?

Animesh, what great timing you have! Definately a Decisive Moment shot. So many expressions and people from all walks of life here in this shot. Perhaps over exposed just a bit, but the results are still none the less very impressive. Good work.

A good photo Evren, not your most compelling or best, but a good portrait. I am curious why you left so much dead space near the top of the photo. Was this intentional?
Also, congrats on the D2X...and the 17-55 F/2.8D. That is quite a large investment you made in your gear. It's good to see the lens and body working together so well. I have heard horror stories about the 17-55 focusing soft.

Interesting photo Sohrab. I don't think this is one of your stronger compositions, but I none the less like it. Very good work blending in as no one is looking into the lens. Personally, I would of liked to see a bit more towards the bottom of the photo, or maybe a whole other composition where you show the empty street to the left. Either way, keep up the good reporting.

I think I will follow with the same comment as everyone else...landscape?? Haha, well done. I would of liked to see a solo person in the shot so I can use his figure to compare to the size of the pylon. I also detect some blue fringes on the plyon it self...if that is from the sharpening or the photo, I am not sure, but it is a bit distracting.

Ireland, big points goes out to you on this one. It is very difficult to get a focused shot with a fast shutter and still keep that focus while panning. Great composition and color as well. Good job.
I notice you have been posting for a while. Have you considered commenting on other people's works to help the community?

Peter, I have a splitting headache today and don't feel like commenting on anything, but I think I'm going to make an exception for this shot. Needless to say, very good work. It always amazes me how good photographers can pick up so well on their environment in relation to their subjects. While most people who shot the girls stretching as a compete work, you done just the opposite using grass to compare the two subjects. You have a very gifted eye Peter.
My only suggestion is to dodge the highlights of foot of the girl in the middle. As it is, it looks like she is missing her leg below the knees. Too bad the G3 only shoots at 28mm, I think shooting this at 24mm would of been amazing.

I must say that when I first saw this, I thought it awas a bit cliche: Poster in the background, a person in the front. As I looked through the photo for more substance, I found it. The man on the stairs, very stern and serious in his suit and tie. It is said that a good photo has three points of interest. Pretty sure you got that covered. Well done Maciej.
