    i like the photos and all, but are the cans really necessary in BOTH pictures? in one maybe, but in both they kinda take away from the rest....just my opinion...

    i think in the first one the cans suck i think the second works well with the cans and the rail road station one is dope as hell... but i wouldnt call them urban scenes either they all look pretty rural to me...

    everyones a critic.

    three of the photos are from a midtown area, and the one of the wall with the tag on it is from downtown around some old warehouses. so they are urban i guess, but we have alot of trees in the city here so it makes it look rural kinda.

    The flicks look pretty nice. The one thing I can't stand about "urban" photography is the number of times I've seen graffiti imagery stolen and then sold in the form of a photograph. Some asshole photographed a production we did a while back and sold it for a few hundred bucks. Where is my royalty check asshole? Make sure you credit the writers, if you don't, it's like a slap in the face. I've even seen graffiti postcards with pieces I recognize on them, again no hint of a credit.

    If somebody takes your work which was intended to be freely exhibited to the public and sells it for money, something is wrong. At least they can take the time to understand and respect the work they are exploiting to pay the bills.

    nice flicks, as has already been said, i would lose the cans, it makes the shot look set up. just focus on composition... keep it up though...

    its not like i would be marketing photos of the pieces (i'm sure your average joe could give a sh!t for who did the graff) the photos would be marketed for the actual photo. besides prints of this stuff probably wont make it past the walls of my apartment. i'm really doing this for myself. but if someone is interested in purchacing prints, i would jump on the chance to sell.

    nice pictures. the cans look good infront of the graff, but not infront of the traintrax. the pictures have nice contrast and the space if filled nicely. good work!

    what you are doing is different than what I was talking about. Imagine square on colour photographs of a production being offered up for sale, that's what I'm talking about.

    If you want credit for your work do some legal painting..if you want to get paid everytime somebody enjoys a piece then you are doing this for the wrong reasons.
