- forget about the BW. Get the basics right first, consider that a later addition to your skills. And for gods sake forget about processing tricks like selective shadows. Just stick to the basics. At this point the special stuff is throwing you off rather than helping, I suspect.

- stick with standard compositions when you can, things that work consistently. Nothing where everything is far away, where the nose is centered, etc. Stick to the basics for now.


Santa Fe - nice shot, were you standing immediately next to Tom Mugnano when you took it? See 338461. Try again in a month or two, maybe.
Yes sir. I have another photo from a slightly different angle I WAS going to try, but after realizing my mistakes, its staying off the queue till another 2 or 3 months.
