Luko...how the hell do you get such nice colors out of your Canon? Personally I've tried everything and can't get the colors looking like you do. Anyway, colors aside, this shot ROCKS. I really like the fact that you're going down and dirty here and really shooting from mud level. The tilt and guy really work well to add drama as well as more interest to these animals you stuck wonderfully into a corner. Great work, Luko.

This is great. I really like the lines and shapes formed by these contraptions and the way you integrated a human element into the mix is just perfect. Wonderful subdued colors that top off the composition. Not much to nit pick here...excellent work.

What a lovely shot. I'm glad that you didn't wake up this early to document another lifeless sunrise, but focused more on what happens to people when dawn breaks. This is just excellent with enough amount of blur to give a sense of movement and speed, but also sharp enough to make out what is going on. The muted colors together with the Vanilla Sky make for a wonderful shot indeed. Excellent work!

Do you know the story behind the dragon pillar? Quite interesting...
Anyway, as for the shot itself...something is missing here. The pillar itself is just too far away to be the central focus point, I think. Light is interesting, though, makes it look like something out of Blade Runner. Anyway, it's an OK shot but not something spectacular.

WOW...simple yet so beautiful. I really like the light...just amazing the way the little girls face stands out right out from the whole image. The locked hands are also an interesting and necessary addition to the whole image. Just wonderful.

Beautiful shot. I really like your compo and the cut off human torso at the top of the frame is essential to the success of this image. Without that small bit the shot itself would have appeared normal. The only thing I dislike are the colors, perhaps it would be better to turn this shot into B&W given the dullness of the RGB. Anyway, good work here, a semi-complex compo that works and makes you wonder. Well done.

Not sure square is the way to go (I would prefer more pano), but the light and moment captured works for me. I really like how the light from the window falls on the woman and the depth of in the background also adds drama and interest to the overall image. Not bad, but you might want to re-think your cropping here as there is much too much empty space up top.
Girl and a motorbike by RGatward (20062)

Nice shot with the two elements balancing each other very nicely. I also like how we can make out just enough detail in the girl and bike as well as see the sunset colors in the background. As for the sunset...I don't feel that it is spectacular enough, so perhaps a crop off the top and into a more pano format would be beneficial.
