    I have been freelancing for a few years now and have also began a small business in my photography. I was just wondering what peoples opinions are of my work. Is it something which you would cincider buying or something which you feel is just a simple snap shot photograph. I have added a few samples below.

    They're all decent pics, but none i would consider buying really. The 3rd is really good though, but with the majority of the image being so dark I don't think it would work well framed.

    They're well shot photos. I dunno if i'd buy them, but that's just because its not the kind of stuff i'm that into, that doesn't mean they aren't good.

    I also take photos, i'm more into the spur of the moment type stuff than landscapes and towns and that. Like quickly snapping people I see doing weird things and just anything interesting I come across. I've got a Diana Mini by Lomography which I tend to take out most, the photos always come out differently and sometimes look really cool due to accidental double exposures and light leaks, due to the fact its only a little plastic thing.
    But I just whack a roll of film in it before I go out and use it up, it's real small and easy to carry.
    Obviously it doesn't take the kind of photos people would want to buy though, haha.

    I had a look through some more of yours, I liked the Dock of the Bay one. Somebody taking a photo of somebody else stood there posing, haha.
    Reminded me of this that I was just looking at for my college work, http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kt...39b7o1_500.jpg

    If you've never been to Pisa, you don't really get to see that angle often, they look so weird, ha!

    So yeah, they look pretty well shot to me, like the Cathedral one looks perfect.
    Just not my sort of thing (I did like the bridge one, the reflection was really cool)
    Though they are the kind of shots people are likely to buy, so i'd say you're going the right way.

    Some of your pictures are amazing and the types of pictures I imagine seeing in coffee houses or bookshops. If I had the money I probably would buy them especially infinity bridge one and the strid. The duck one is so cute :p:

    How much are you selling the infinite bridge one for? - It's modern, but has a hint of futuristic character, and it seems potently mystical at the same time...

    What sort of material will the infinite bridge be printed on, and for how much? I'm quite interested =) - or is it not for sale yet?

    P.S - I live in London by the way
