Beautiful pictures! You did a great job of capturing the light, looks fantastic. I'm curious though, all the photos have strong divisions going straight down their middles. Is that a stylistic? I like the unity it gives the set.
Thanks MeesterPanda, glad you enjoyed the photos. I know they aren't perfect but I feel that I have come a long way in the past year or so, especially ceasing use of a cellphone camera (not that I'm knocking others that do). As for the strong divisions I think that may have just been by chance although I try really hard to incorporate the rule of thirds in my work as much as possible.
I appreciate the criticism. The screen situation isn't all that bad when it comes to the printing factor but it's certainly interesting to see how a photo can change from screen to screen, especially comparing retina Macs to PCs.
As for the camera situation the 70D was a deal I couldn't turn down as it was a dirt cheap pick up for the sell off of the 60D. I have already started to look at full frame cameras but a school tuition unfortunately comes first.
Lastly, I can understand the criticism on the light blow out on the windows. It's not until I get to my computer that I realize I could have used an extra bracket worth of under exposed shots for windows. As for framing it's another thing I look forward to improving on. I find the hobby is quite challenging in this respect as so often you are working in tight spots and finding the right angle is sometimes the difference between ending up going through the floor or getting lens flare and capturing something close to the perfect shot.
But as I said I really do appreciate the criticism, I believe it's necessary to grow as a photographer and artist in general.
