I have been lurking (and occasionally commenting) for quite a while on this site. I have come to appreciate the honesty (sometimes brutal) given in the responses to critique requests. I hoping I could get some feedback on a couple of images I have taken over the summer.
Both of these images were taken at the Cheltenham Badlands near Toronto, Ontario (in Caledon -- 45 minutes NW of the downtown core). I would particularly like the know if they have an emotional impact. Are they grabbing? Do they convey a particular mood or emotion? Are they (or do you imagine they will be) interesting beyond a moment or two?
Secondarily, can you see them as salable prints (assuming a quality print)? This is something I would like to get into in the coming year or two.
Any and all other comments are also sought including any technical considerations. If this goes well, I have a few other images that I'd like to receive honest responses about. I currently post at Photo.net and find that you are either given little more than mindless praise or else silence.
Thanks in advance,
