This is good photojournalism in my opinion as you have told a story with these images. All are important for the narrative, however as individual images #3 & #5 really work for me.

very cool set - last 2 are my faves here.
For shot 1, I'd probably crop 1 - 1.5 inches inch off the top and right sides - to me that would make it 'balance' and better focus our eyes on all the cool lines in the image.
Hope that may help.

As Runmonty says, excellent photojournalism.

Hey Iggy - -Since you are okay w/edits......
Here's the crop I'd try (It's not exactly proportionate though)
I'd be curious to know if you (and/or) other members agree. Thx.

Cool set Iggy...Brings back my painting on a swing stage days. I agree with Marcos edit here on that first shot simply because when I look at it I'm drawn into the interesting parts of the image. I'm guessing the negative space in the original balanced out so the eye saw it as a vista, feeling no need to explore. Cropping the neg space draws the eye in. As an establishing shot however maybe it works because we want the vista without regard for the detail, a sot of "Here we are" moment. My 4c anyway :)

Totally OK with edits as long as they stay on the forum for instructional purposes. :) Thanks! I totally get what you are going for. I like it! :)

Thanks, Michael. Yes, I think I did just see it as a "vista" -- the view from the roof -- rather than trying to highlight the detail of what's going on in the city.
