There has been some comments on the LUG and LEG about not making critical 
comments on some of the PAWS.  Since Don's is the first I have come across 
this week, his will be the one I critique.  Please take these comments in 
good humor.

The first image may have been better if you could see her face.  The out of 
focus in the mirror looks pretty cool.

The second could be a little closer.  In a little closer, the top of the 
picture would end near the pallets of food and not include the bright light 
sources above them.

The third one I would crop just above the first cafe sign.  There is too 
much empty space above the building.

The fourth is just too cluttered.

I would think again if you really need 1600 asa film for these types 
of  images.  The grain is quite obvious and you may be losing a range of 
tones that you would capture on slower film.
