these are great Doc. I like the second and last one. the second is so clear it's like you could walk over and have a drink (well swim maybe). what is the nature of the building in the last one? The first one I like too but not the same as the others, it has a scary scene in it, at least scary for me when I was younger. A beautiful blond girl with a HUGE shopping bag ... too often the suitors never notice the shopping bags :)

The 3rd shot is a building in the center of Yerevan, just on the Republic Square. It's a ministry office (I don't recall which), libraries at the ground floor and a bank.

Hi,

I like the second photo most between all three of them. I find the first photo to be cropped a little too tightly at the top, it could use an extra space above the bridge. I got the impression that you cropped the couples faces off the photo intentionaly so they wouldn't be identified. Just an impression...

Nice places, thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

In fact there was this fence just on the level with the faces and too many cars in different colors which were distracting, not to say annoying. So I used Winston's advice on cropping.

I like Nr. 2 and esp. 3. Nr. 1 doesn't work for me and I don't like the heads cut off :lol:
