    I really like the vibrant colors in all the pictures. The Osaki City ones are my faves though. 🙂

    Okay back in my element. Hopefully I won’t have to write an essay to re-re-re-elaborate what I wanted to say in the first place.

    Osaki City 2 is the clear winner here. Osaki 1 is also pleasant but I’m not sure what I’m looking at. To be honest, in Osaki 2 I’m not so sure either but the way you got the sunlight there and the frame so regimented it’s my favorite.

    The shopping street is almost there but I’m thinking you’re kinda overdoing the ghosting effect. I know why you do it and that’s cool, when we discover a new technique we want to play with it as much as possible, feel it out and see where it goes. The problem I find is that if the man is supposed to be subject I’m not seeing it.

    Kikuna Valley is almost there but it’s just a touch over-saturated and noise in the clouds takes it from painterly to meh. This is why I feel you need a DSLR, since the bigger sensor will let you abuse those pixels the way you so desperately want to.

    Kikuna Street and Couple are, quite frankly, not that great. With Kikuna you got those greens having a party and the old man isn’t intriguing me. The angle on the Couple doesn’t let me see what you want me to see. Are you trying to highlight how emotionally distant they are? A quiet closeness? I’m not sure and that third guy is in plain view which makes me think he’s part of their scene or even that this is just some meeting which happens to have three people sitting next to each other. Again, with a DSLR, a big lens/sensor would let you blur that guy out of focus and have me at least focus on those two and with a more direct framing I would be able to focus on what they are doing.
