And critique me please! Give it to me straight, too. This is mostly work from 2+ years ago. I've just started picking up my camera again, and I'm curious which direction to go. Thanks much!

hey there-- thanks for sharing! I also think you have a great eye, and loved the different perspectives you saw. The black and white series showed much depth, and I think I gravitated more towards those, as I am a funky macro person, lol! I liked the abstract tent in the color series, too. Good for you for getting back in the groove-- I want to do the same! Have fun! Michelle

Wonderful composition! They are all great. My favorites were the house series and the sandstorm photo.

"Maple Syrup" is beautiful.

"Eye Screws" is extremely disturbing! I say that as praise. The image is almost pretty and then I realize what I'm looking at--which is kind of interesting since it is "looking at" me!

My favourite was "Me2" because the composition invites different interpretations. The hands suggest an inverted kind of praying, but their positioning also suggests the female reproductive system. (Maybe I only think that because I saw it while on MDC?) So I'm reading that image as female spirituality/sexuality, although I'm not sure how that jives with the title.

Just a lay perspective--I don't really know how to "read" photographs.

(I liked the others too, but this is written in haste.)
