Too much noise for the parking structure shots.

Shots in front of the building have sun glare.

Didn't really do that good of a job censoring the plate. You should've 'blanked' it out for a cleaner look.

First shot is the best one IMO.

i think the parking lot shots are the best of the bunch. that grain is hot! almost film-like.

Thanks for the input! I like the glare actually, I think it adds that extra bump to the photo and as for the plate censoring thing, I didn't want to blank it out or leave it there so this is my compromise between the two. As for the noise, I can't really do much about it, if I had used a lower iso my camer would have struggled to get a good shot, if I ran it through a noise reduction program, the photo would have came out blurry and then I would have had to sharpen it myself which never turns out right away. So I just left it. I think the noise adds a good touch to all the photos.

My goal in photography is not to follow the major hype trends, I want to create my own style, by experimentation, shooting, and accepting input for everyone like yours Thanks!

Yea, it adds that cool "movie" effect if you know what I mean. Nikon FE ftw!!

Nice shots! I do actually like the sun glare -- gives it a little something extra.

For hero type shots, I just change the plate numbers:

But I normally don't care if people see my license plate.

All digital users need to use some film cameras and see what noise really is
