Happy Holidays Pedro,

My name is Melissa Prien. I was one of the individuals who wrote a comment on your collage girl image. In return you wrote to me and asked me when I was going to enter an image so you could return the critique. I have been doing a lot of shooting as of late and was wondering if you would turn your professional eye on a few of my images before I place them in a local Artist show. I am far from being a pro like yourself but I dont think I am all that bad so any thing you have to say about my images good or bad would be welcome.

Thank you for your time.

Possibly a little shorter exposure would have created less blown areas. Still a very nice image. 8

I would've made the tower more central as more of a focal point in the composition. Good exposure and the smoke looks cool. Just needs a better focal point, especiially since it is so busy.

Nicely done. Capturing air venting from buildings adds grace to this majestic image.

Nice view. The curving roof helps this picture a lot in my opinion. It breaks up the monotony.

This shot is amazing.

Just wondering what is coming out of the top of some of those buildings. It almost looks as though they are on fire.

cool effect with the smoke from the building illuminated and blown in the wind.

great scne. I like the smoke/steam blowing off the tops of the twin buildings on the left and the partial view of the elliptical roof in the lower right. Has a neat "Blade Runner" feel to it. 8

Its really a great shot. Seems a bit too much with the red though. Very nice steam coming from the buildings.

The exposure in this picture is a nice compromise between bringing out the glow of the lights and retaining the darkness of sky and buildings. Very nice.

A little less exposure and a little less red would have probably made a slightly nicer shot IMHO.

Nice colors here, I like the composition and the effect of the longer shutter speed. One blown out spot with a red halo around in on the middle building at the top is rather distracting.

Another cold day, it appears. I love the steam coming out of the buildings! NIce, balanced composition and lovely colors. 9

Captures a frigid winter night nicely (unless this is San Antonio)...
