A few I like

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

I simply love the 2nd photo. Pet, in this case a dog, can manipulate your emotions. Having said that, photo one is a question of patience and timing - it's not an easy photo in a busy city. I like the third photo in black and white.

Not really, unless the patience refers to waiting for the two or three years that this section of George St has been closed due to the construction works in place for the Eastern Suburbs light rail. :) George St has been anything but busy during this period.

The construction is a movable feast, with closures now around Eddy Avenue, Elizabeth and Foveux Sts causing inconvenience to all and sundry. Hopefully this will be worth the pain, but the loss of many trees, is unbelievable vandalism on the part of the government, and the length of the actual trains, being the longest in the world, I believe, may present some new traffic issues as intersections are blocked.

The sad thing is that, in the '50s, I was raised in Kingsford - where this system is terminating - and in those days there were the trams that ran from the city through Kingsford to Maroubra and La Perouse, as well as other services into Bondi, Bronte and Coogee. Those services were removed and lines pulled up, and now we're basically putting them back!

If you drive down Anzac Pde in the Moore Park area, the bus roadway used to be where the trams ran, but no, that's not where the new trams will be running. And again, if you drive further along Anzac Pde, from Kingsford through Maroubra Junction and on to La Perouse, that big stretch of land in the middle of the road - Including the car parking area opposite Souths Junior's - was the trams' right of way.

Ah well ...

In fact......I think it was at the completion of some kind of parade just before they reopened the road.

There ya go: patience! Matt waited three years or so till they not only completed the construction, but then held a parade especially for him.

And he waited until that finished!
