Seriously.

Objectively, the choice of HDR in the first image when you have moving people so close to your subject is creating some really unsightly ghosts in the reflection. Compositionally speaking, the handle-bar through the rider's head in the reflection really takes away from what could have been a really cool shot. I won't get started on how bad the skin tone is...

The over-editing in the second photo detracts entirely from a comedic moment.

And the last image could have been an amazing black and white image with that pool of light and just the silhouettes of the people walking away/around.

If you stripped away the terrible editing, you'd have some good or great images!

I don think these are some of your better ones darth. I don't think portrait shots worked with the heavy HDR

Composition wise they work and the humor inthe second shot is good but again the shot becomes distracted by the HDR.

I am somewhat bemused by this, darthkindy has evolved a particular style and some of his photos and pp really hit the mark, yet they are often ignored on the forum and don`t attract positive comments. Some I really like and some not so much, but I respect his work, skill and dedication.
Now when he put up some photos that he labelled as "fun pics" he gets negative comments. Lighten up people. :P

I think we are being honest and darth I am sure knows that we do appreciate his work, he has since I have been here produced some very entertaining, clever and confident shots and I like a lot of his shots. These have elements that work but for me don't quite level up to some of his other work. :D

I'm sure he will be posting something very different very soon and I'm looking forward to what he comes up with next !

I love your work Darth! I wish I could sit and look over your shoulder as you work so i can see what all you do. I don't want to copy your style but understand what and how you do it. I've even associated you with a commercial here in the US. I think it is History or TLC with the show "Swamp People" The commercial looks just like your work! :D
