Wonderful composition with the figures set against the light and dark areas. The barrel distortion from the lens is ok too. And the little red light in the background, that's great.

Hmm - the models expression is much too forced, it looks more like a try than a success.

The idea of this animated gag is funny, and the images have pictorial qualities to make it more than a gag, the hard contrast and the blue tones give it a distinct urban feel.

That's a great place, especially the left wing (as seen when approaching from the Seine) recently renovated by Lacaton & Vassal. The "rough" use of the existing half-demolished building is very fresh. I guess this is from the right wing, the marble looks like it.
I think you achieved a good composition here with the tall format matching the pillars and the shocking yellow behind the calm blue.

For a casual shot it is quite well composed. The thing that really makes it interesting for me is the white dot of a ship on the water playing a game with the still untouched golfball in the grass, is that where he wanted to drive the ball?

Uh oh - be careful what you're drinking Isabel!
A strong and introspective study, simple and complicated at the same time, it pulls a lot of strings in me.

The space to the right (edit: I meant left, silly me!)with some blurred vertical lines balances the books (and records?) nicely in the composition creating a nice and airy photo that shows some of the elegance of books and paper.

He does indeed strike a rather statuesque pose that almost mirrors the statue (raised shoulder). I like how you framed each figure within each owns window but the poster in between is a little disturbing. Light and tones are very good, why post it here and not TE? (it's just that I wonder how people consider the differences)

Very fine flowing lines and good sharpness, texture and light. It tells the story simple and efficient. I like it
