Constructive Criticism. Hope you don't mind.

I don't really like how you've processed them. They look like you've used HDR software to process them.
I would get into using Luminosity Masks to blend multiple exposures together.
Check out YouTube. There's lots of tutorials available.
You'll give more realistic results, with just a little bit more effort.

Personally, I would also correct your verticals. So they're actually vertical.

The places look nice though and do have potential
I'm just trying to be helpful, not nasty.

Thank you for your constructive comment. I will check it out. For the process, although, I believe that it is a question of taste.

If the photos are supposed to resemble a painting, then it's quite good. You could even go further with this.

If these are supposed to be photojournalistic-style street photos, the processing is not ideal, to say the least. They are very artificial. Kind of like the difference between a fresh cherry and a maraschino cherry. Very different cherries which are used in different ways.

The photos are supposed to be just what I am feeling right now. I am doing a series on the Heritage buildings in my town. If you think that the processing is artificial. There is nothing I can do to change your mind. I like it this way. Sorry...

I like it. It's different and artistic, kind of nice to see others stretch their visions from the more traditional. Nelson's buildings really lend themselves to this type of processing.

Respectfully said; If I were Mado I would mind. Very much.

-MS- your work is simply spectacular. Clarity, detail and color: amazing.

Problem is; the "unprocessed' reality would baffle anyone who walked into those same settings as they strained to see the lighting and details in your images.

That's ok. It's your image and they really are a unique expression of the scene.

And that unique expression is exactly what Mado has posted. His view of the scene. And likely no one actually standing in front of them would pause in slight disappointment that the magnificent image they saw wasn't there.

May I respectfully suggest that unsolicited c&c might better start with an inquiry (or even a PM) "Would you like some suggestions and ideas?"

and a final word: Mado I like your images.

I like these, especially the first. I think the processing works for the subjects here, I didn't much like it when you used it on the kids in the rain.
