You picked my favorite of the two of this fellow. I like all the recent portraits, but the lady with the bags might be giving you "THE LOOK!". Very nice bunch.

I like this a ton Joe. Just came from a Print Competition where the Theme was Abstract. You might have taken the prize with this one.

How many shots of these chairs have you taken?
Do you explore scenes, do you "milk the scene"? Squeeze the last bit of it, get around, try different angles, get closer, get down low etc. When I take a couple of shots this way I often find that the last shot is best, or at least the one that I find most interesting. You explore the subject and quickly learn and find the angle and point of view that creates the strongest image. I think there is more in those curved lines and contrast in between them than three chairs. I don't care too much about the carpet to the bottom left and the background to the right.
You are on track to get some great images, keep the project going, Joe.

The 2 Exit shots made me smile.
I like the street lamp, there is something about the similar tonality of the lamp body and background sky, I would have possibly experimented with a different composition. The lamp more off center and maybe lower to give it more dynamic but if you were more in a calm mood, then your choice is better.
Keep it going Joe.

thanks!
placement of the lamp was tricky...it was not a very tall street lamp and there were buildings all around...but i do have a problem of centring my subjects sometimes.

"Klaatu barada nikto” is a phrase that originated in the 1951 science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still. The humanoid alien protagonist of the film, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), instructs Helen Benson (Patricia Neal) that if any harm befalls him, she must say the phrase to the robot Gort (Lockard Martin). In response Gort relents from destroying the Earth and resurrects Klaatu from death.

The flowers and foliage are a nice juxtaposition to the industrial stuff. A breath of fresh air.
