yea, the last one is a little blurry, but it seems to work pretty good. I have a couple more prints coming that might replace it, but as of now it is in. and no, its not a story really, just a general set of prints based around a theme.

White balance, white balance, white balance.

Sepia is one thing, but I'm not a big fan of the heavy incandencent orange tone.

I like the forth one the best.

i like the 3rd , 6, and 7 the most

all your mental armor drags me down

People will instinctively do more good if they know they will get credit for it.

I think some of your photos are too messy, especially for photos 1, 3 and 7. By messy I meant they lack in a clear focus, because some objects in your photographs indirectly act as distractions, thus luring me away from the central picture that you are trying to present. Just my opinions, though.
I like the last photograph the most. Its blur brings a misty, dreamy feel to it. With the broken swing and the blur, it presents me an image of a lost happiness. Suitable for your topic of 'Lonliness'.

Work on the white balance so you can we can really tell contrast and what not. I really like the compostion of all of them But you didnt seem to really movie away from the grunge theme. They are all well done the one of the bicycle is my favorite. In the second shot set that you posted I really dig the abstract and the stool. The one of the rim doesnt ahve much to it in terms of contrast and focul point.

Uhhhh, You want constructive criticism, Lighten up some of the dark areas in a few photos(eg.The stool legs in #1), with that said, I think they're perfect.

I really need to get a slide scanner. There is good contrast on the actual prints, but the lighting I used and i guess the digital camrea gave them the orange tone and the darkness. I made sure to get enough contrast out of them. I think there were only a couple that I purposely printed alittle darker because it added to the feel i thought.

Thanks for the comments.

On your digicam there has to be an indoor setting you can enable to take those shots and have them to show off nicley. Do you jsut have a normal scanner you can throw them into?
