Nice shot of a nice subject. You've placed the subject slightly off-center and it feels in-between to me -- I'd rather see this centered or in classic rule-of-thirds placement. The subject stands out naturally from the nicely uniform background and for this reason I find the vignette treatment overkill -- it draws attention to itself as a process. This could also make a really striking B&W.
I knew there was something slightly off with that pic. Thanks for pointing a few things out and I think I may go back and do it as a B&W later.

I like the first picture, plenty of details and great treatment.

Hadn't planned to take any photos today at all, but as I had my Q with me... I realize the second is wildly out of focus, which wasn't my intention, but I like it anyway.
this blurry shot is great!

I braved the wind and played a little bit before class this morning.









Record Grill. Bonnie Parker (as in Bonnie & Clyde) worked at this place.


I like how I got the image of the businessman inside; didn't notice it at all until I cropped.

B&W version of my previous post also with flowers more centered. Feedback is appreciated.

What method did you use to convert to B&W? My preference would be for channel mixer, de-emphasizing the green channel to really emphasize the contrast between flowers and foliage.

A bunch of shots from a shopping tour. I really forced myself to use the 02 instead of my 01 prime and it's quite good.

Nice street shots! I like the detail an pop your B&Ws have together with good subjects.

I like it alot. It would be really nice if you could go into Photoshop and remove the telephone wires.
FWIW, I didn't think those lines were all that distracting, they were far enough out of focus.

How about a closeup with the 01 lens
Q rested on the table just in front of the cat.
