Interesting set...

May from unique points of view. A few I don't care for, but I like most of them.

Re: nice images...location question

Great shots. You were all over. I see some shots that must have taken from NJ. The first shot is of Richmond Town in Staten Island. Few tourists make it out here.

The great news is that your compositions are solid, well-thought, inspiring, and creative. That's by far the most important part.

What you need to work with is your technical skills. Most of these photos are substandard in tonality and color. There is a lot of flatness, excessive shadow recovery, and lack of midtone contrast.

These things will always be subjective, to an extent, but I really think this pseudo-HDR appearance is not doing justice to your excellent compositions.

But like I said, cheer up, coz you seem to be having a pretty solid photographic eye. The technical aspects can be fixed more easily!

They all look like strong images to me. Lots of variety of style and composition. I think a very strong collection.

Yes,I  had the chance to visit many places. In fact, there was not a single soul in Richmond Town :)))

Thanks

Re: Images of New York

Very nice!  We seem to have similar tastes in photography!  I love NYC... was there for 5 hours once in Manhattan and it was the best time of my life.  Want to go back so badly... I am envious of you but very happy you were there... thanks for all the cool shots!  I hope you get to go back again as well... with your camera of course!
