Request for Critique to my teacher, Carol

Thanks so much everyone for taking the time to give me your comments on which Neon photos you like. It means a lot to me that you took the time. Thanks to Ray, Cupcake and Alima who also gave me their feedback. Below is the list of photos I chose to submit for critique and sent in today. My teacher Carol will not begin giving critiques on this 3rd assignment - Neon until after the deadline for submission this coming Tuesday.


Dear Carol,

What a mind opening experience this neon assignment has been. I haven’t had this much fun in a long time (I haven’t felt this alive from an adrenaline rush –yes, I went out alone!). I had no idea there were so many weird people out at night.

The hardest part of the Neon assignment has been selecting only 3 photos from all I shot. I haven’t a clue what is good, what I like best, what is following the class assignment. This is all so foreign to me.

I asked 6 friends which neons they liked. Their opinions varied. My problem is that I like more than I am allowed to submit for class critique.

But I’ve chosen….Below is the list of the 3 photos I am selecting for your critique:

  1. Pickford Theatre
  2. Show Girls
  3. Car Wash Elephant

(But I also really like, Red Rose Bar, Color within Color, and Beauty Shop and others I didn’t post.)

So here I go with an extra request….. As you will see, I placed all the photos I had trouble choosing from in my Yahoo class folder.

Would you (certainly NOT critique all these photos in the folder but) only list which 3 of the 7 photos you would have submitted for this neon assignment. I understand if you don’t want to do this, I just thought I’d ask. Pllllllllllllllllllllllease?

Thanks so much for all your time, knowledge and effort. Again, I love this class.

Choices: #1 Hair shop, #2 Gentlemen's Club, and #8 rose Bar. I also loved Dumbo and the close up Ticket Sign.
May I pleassse have a copy of #1 to frame, and hang on my wall (this picture of Hair shop calls to my past life of hair stylist)?
Lin your level of commitment always amazes me. I want to be a photographer just like you when I grow up. What a Great Job. I can't wait for her critique. L, Me
