No. 2 is real cool, others are good too, but a few of them need a little rotational correction. :)

I like #2 best. It (almost) looks like you're making a statement about how commercial the suburbs have become, what with all those signs placed all over. The woman walking on the pavement is a nice touch that balances off the composition.

One tip, the photos look a little "cool". Perhaps you should shoot on the "cloudy" setting as it did look like a cloudy day.

Great shots jka.
That young fella in the carriage looks as though he may have a bit of rebel in him somewhere judging by the bends and tilt in his hat. :wink:

Thanks guys for looking and commenting......

varunchauhan......in #8 the road is "crowned" and gives the carriage a tilt.....telephone pole is actually leaning. Not sure what other one you may be refering to.

pgtips.....Your right on.....I was trying to show the commercial side to these small towns, some of the people that live in them soley rely on tourists for income.
It was overcast, cloudy and cool that day and I thought about warming up the shots.....people were in coats and long sleeves so I just left the pics. "natural".

kpr......He definately looks like he's trying to make a statement, one of the reasons I used that pic.....thought it added interest. In the other shots I've got he was looking staight ahead. There is also the 2 other kids in the carriage, there was no room to spare in that buggy.

Cheers....

Some great shots there. Got to say your Kincardine looks a lot nicer than the "original" here in Scotland.

Great shots...

BTW JKA we'll be neighbors, I'm moving back to Canada. I'm going to build my dream in the Laurentians. I know a few spots where to shot my favorite bird, the loon I love hearing them best.
