I saw this woman with big hair flowing out of her modified helmet, and could not resist the image. I love this kind of humor and "incongruity." This was shot on an island off the coast of Vancouver Island.

Well to add a touch of humour, if the police see this the helmet could be "Hair today - gone tomorrow".

So you have a humerous little cameo but still it would be prefereable to set the camera at a larger aperture maybe f8 minimum and adjust your ISO accordingly. You need to retain the shutter speed because of the FL in use.

Quite like this. Well seen and works well. One or two bright highlights but pretty good over all. Good street photography.

Quite an interesting scene Peter Smile, i like the composition and the story this tells, perspective is good as well....frame is neat ...maybe a touch more contrast but its fine as it is too...B&W conversion maybe another option to consider...

Well seen and captured, Peter. Good colours and detail throughout.
Since the bikes and the woman are (slightly) facing to the left, I'd rather have seen space on the left side, rather than on the right.

You have put several images into the Critique Gallery, Peter, and have received quite detailed comments on them. However, you have left no feedback on those pictures. Some comment from yourself makes it easier to provide you with a valid critique, which should then tend to cover the areas that you are hoping to improve upon. It would be helpful if you could give a short response to those comments just so that we know we are pitching them at the right level and providing you with the sort of feedback that you require. It could be assumed, since you continue to upload to the Critique Gallery, that you are happy with the response, but a few words from you can make all the difference to the critiquer, who will never know.

Pamela.

I like the image, but feel the composition could be better if you had the bit of dead space on the left instead of the right...or i think i'd just move the figure closer to the edge, with a crop.

I would love to have seen this taken with a wide-open big aperture, throwing the background out of focus, but with your gear that's not possible, so not much else you could do, except maybe locally up the brightness and colour of the shirt.

I appreciate the critiques. I often feel like I have no feedback, and this community has given me the beginning of a sense of myself as a photographer in context of others---for "work" that I have been pursuing most of my life/

Thank you.
