    How many photographers does it take to change a light bulb? 50. One to change the bulb, and forty-nine to say, "I could have done that better!"

    These are all cool but I really love the second one. And this just goes to prove that documenting your own life and your own family can produce wonderful photos. You don't have to travel around the globe to make interesting photos, they are everywhere.

    Great series Liz. #3 & #4 win it for me, especially 4. I'm curious why it remains in colour.

    I just came looking for the forum and for a minute thought it had been totally deleted. Phew!

    Thank you Lens. My favorite in a while--the look on their faces gets me and I love that if they are not playing little league baseball then they are watching it together.

    Thanks Russ. I know how you feel about little kids, I feel the same. I was hesitant about #4, glad it works for you.

    Thanks Stacks--funny, that's the only non family shot. I was on the crowded 7 train with my family and we got split up in the crowd. These people were sitting right infront of me and I loved the way the 6:30 p.m. sun was blasting in through the window of the elevated train. It was Friday and not everyone had that subway look, some people were happy. I had to get it :)

    I keep skipping it when looking for it too--It will take me a couple of days. My heart stopped for a second when I first went in search of street.
    #4 I wanted to show the typical underground subway colors. They are harsh, the light is anyway and it casts a weird color, but also I think the color is quintessential NYC. I dont' think they can be confused w/ any other subway system in their true color. I like the inclusion of the subway map on the side (that is also typical NYC subway map, easy to recognize the color even if you don't recognize the geography).

    Like the first: but it might have been stronger if they were another two steps further away.

    Third is wonderful. I like how close you are, which accentuates the closest kid in the shot with the others complementing him well.

    As everyone's likes and dislikes vary, for me the first is the keepier-least of the bunch. And nothing wrong with colour. Learn it, love it, use it!

    rolleyes1.gifThank you all. My elementary school grammar teacher just rolled over in her grave, even if she taught me in Spanish. Proper grammar is proper grammar and your words above are some of the pooriest ever :) rolleyes1.gif

    I am very happy with this set. A little bit for everyone.

    Jenn--I am starting to come around to color a bit, just a bit though.
