    Hi all,

    still fairly new to the forums, but i am trying to share some more pictures now that the holidays are here! Here are some of my the pictures i took with my Nex 5R. I have a knack for B&W pictures but also try to shoot some colour photo' s from time to time. Most pictures were taken with the Samyang 85mm or 14mm lens, these are prime lenses with manual focus and aperture. So not all of them are perfectly in focus as i am still practicing (yes peak focus is on, an unmissable tool). Here are the pics, constructive feedback is welcome!

    Well done, like them all.

    The only one that seems a bit off is the last one. Seems a bit on the blue side.

    Very nice catches. The last one could bear with some white balance correction indeed, but the expressions are priceless!

    You have a great sense of composition! Don't worry about focus, it improves with practice.

    The dancing one has a nice feel to it. (maybe go for a bit of a crop to remove the black blob in the far right?)

    I like the expressions captured in the last image in particular.
