    Amazing shots, really like the 3rd one. Perfect composition and colors.
    If these are your first shots, I can't wait to see your next shots .

    Smoke in B&W, gimme. #2: take away the small S, giving the large S and triangel some space, and it's a shot for the wall. Still a very good one. I like the kind of serene look of the asphalt through the smoke; to me this picture catpures both some of the drama and the business as usual sides of the scene.

    Excellent shots, really great stuff. Like the colour usage in the last one, well I like them all really. Brilliant.

    Hi Sun,

    A nice series, I like the second the most, nice contrast.

    Incredible camera for the size, eh?

    Hi,

    First of all, let me agree with all of the above: your shots are great and I'm very impressed. I really like the way you work with the contrast and how you've used the colour in shot 3. But, seeing one shot like this, it feels a bit gimicky. It's very well done, but if I would see an exhibit with only one photograph that was treated like this, I would think: "oh, he wanted to show off his Photoshop skills here." I think the effect of your processing in yellow is so good that it might be interesting to see what happens if you do the same to all 3 shots. You could make a Montreal street documentary with all B&W, but the firefighter shots in yellow to let them stand out as a series about one topic. Just an example, of course.


    Peter.
