I'd say maybe Jeff Wall I'm not quite seeing Gursky. I don't think you can really emulate Gursky without a large format camera its just so much of what make him him. But either way nice.
Going to do alittle group critique since it seems there are quite few requests and few any people taking those requests.

1 thru 4 I'm abit lost toward what the idea is and they all have various issue of out of focus, exposure, white balance, and generally there isn't a whole lot going on. 5 is alright, you have to watch your frame, you cut off the top of the tree and oldly cropped that building on the right but other wise it's an alright photograph.

nice, it's good to see more people that shoot film in this post. Some of those feel like their probably alittle underexposed and thin negatives but still nice nonetheless.RELEVANT SX
1 is ehh. It's underexposed slightly on the right. It's very difficult to take intersting pictures of just sky so take this with a grain of salt. But you gotta give us something, a more formal composition? something. It's just picture of the sky, there isn't a whole lot to it. 2 is underexposed, even if you're just trying to get the lights nothing else its underexposed.theHBkid
1 is kinda is what it is. I'm not a fan of that sort of head on flash style. that sort of the hipster holga crowd has kinda had gotten behind. All you need is the vignette. But as that, it is what it is what is... no real issues. 2 is nice... Maybe little less water more sky. especially with that wake at the bottom, but the porportion is don't crop. Alot you guys kill it with the croping, most of the more well known porportions are like that for a reason. They're good porportions, don't crop... 3 is nice too. wish there wasn't that black at the bottom like that and i like 2 alot more but nothing really wrong with it other than that block of the building thats sticking out and dark. 4 snow is hard to shoot with, its an exposure nightmare of sorts with how it reflects. so maybe alittle on the dark end, shoot for the shadows... lots of lost shadow detail, probably because of the snow. otherwise the building being cropped funny is ehh, at the top but its not bad photo by any means.DUNKiSHH
As a cohesive work I would say nice... I like seeing photos that actually tie together than just random snap shots. But quite a few are a hair underexposed. I think the tonal range works nicely but you should pick up all that shadow detail. Compositionally I like 2 and 4. Composition problems I would say 5 give his head more room to show proportion and dont cut off his feet. Also cutting off the hands in the last two kills those for me. Either get the bust shot and get his arms or get the tight close up and completely avoid them, dont ride the fence. 3 would be better if it was more head on and straight across. That siding screens formal constructed composition like 2 where it runs perfectly horizontal. But otherwise I would say your work is definately improving...
