Hi John your picture are taking on shape as to what you like and who you are. I have some up and coming photographers that I try to pass on what I learn over my 35 years in photography. I like the composition of your pictures, and you do a very good job of framing the shot. I am sometimes ask what makes a good photograph. The first thing I tell people is take your camera off program and shoot manually. This way they will have an understanding of how f-stops, ASA, White balance etc. work. I tell them learn the difference between a f4 or f11, I also suggest buying a reasonable hand held light meter. Framing The shot is very important, and take a picture so that you do not have to crop it. Always keep in mind the VP (vanishing point) this is the spot on your photo that you want the viewers Eye to go to. And of course lighting. I myself am a big Ansel Adam fan an love Black & white on certain pictures because sometimes color can make a photo too busy. As I said in the beginning your photos are very well done. But remember what I said about having a vanishing point, you as a photographer have to make the viewers eye see what you see when you take the photo. You have to direct the viewers eye to that one important spot on a photo. I like your photos and I think you have a great Eye. For capturing the moment.
