<p>These are two photos I took with my point and shoot in April.  One was from Yosemite National Park, the other at the California Academy of Sciences. </p>

<p>Nice!  It is lonely, so I'll add a few.  I got a bee in bonnet and started looking at some images from China - we went, then opened our studio as soon as we got back so I've barely looked at these!</p>

<p>ym - I love everything about the top image.  There's so much going on.  I love the depth of field - the lines of traffice & coca-cola signage that dispappears into the background.  I like all the foreground - the crosswalk & the people waiting.  But my favorite part are the motorbikes zooming by.  Just a great photograph.  There are so many stories in one image & so much artistry too on your part in catching them all. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll dig out some of my more recent, meager, non-baby images later to share.</p>

<p>Thanks Sputnik!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's been over 2 years since we were there and I have never gone through the images myself.  Mr. YM did and created a slideshow with some of his favorites and that's all I've really seen from that trip.  In some ways, I think it's kind of cool because I'm looking at these photos with a complete emotional detachment.  I no longer remember where a lot of the street scenes were taken or what I was trying to accomplish so I can evaluate them with an open mind.  I was pretty excited when I saw this one! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif" title=""></p>

<p>ym- I love that top one too, for all the reasons Sputnik gave. :)  You have a great sense for capturing people in the moment.  I don't have the eye for that, not yet anyway. </p>

Why not - part of the idea here is to learn.  Screw around trying a few things, sometimes something works, sometimes it doesn't, keep asking questions, etc.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>To paraphrase Mr. Orwell, we are all worthy, even though some of us (Heater, YM, etc) are more worthy than others.</p>

<p>I love two of these -IV and VI.  The jumping tourists made me laugh.  The criticism I have is the dismembered arm on the right edge.  Like I mentioned in the portraits thread, I end up with a lot of images where I see clutter\extra stuff after the fact, that I wished i had picked up before I released the shutter.  This looks to be a similar case.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Panama Jack is a great portrait - nice even light, no distracting elements, good context.  Like this one a lot.</p>

See, I didn't mind that because it directs your eye back into the photo, and you can see her whole reflection in the globe.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I do know what you mean about clutter though.</p>

I agree with LH.  I hadn't really noticed it before.  BUT, after I put my finger over the dismembered arm, I like the image much more.</p>

<p>I LOVE image III - order and randomness, man-made and nature-made, similar but dis-similar.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love the POV too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Question though, how did you upload your photos?  I uploaded mine directly and if you click on it, it opens again in another window.  Yours don't do that?</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>

<p>And thanks Bard. :)</p>

<p>Thanks for the feedback.  I uploaded mine directly as well.  When I click on my own images in the thread they open again in another window just like yours do for me.<br>

<p>My wife is the photographer in our family.  She's the one with the DSLR and has been to photography classes.  Of course her favorite subjects are our two kids.  I just got her a new long lens for her birthday / mother's day.  Here's a couple of her work:</p>
