Without going deeply into the galleries - my immediate impression of  
the work on the opening page:
        1. graphic punch
        2. design oriented
        3. max saturation

not "honest, straightforward documentary photography"

As someone else noted - it would appear that these photographers are  
going out and finding punchy, contrasty, saturated color subjects and  
exploiting those characteristics to the max in their framing and post  

Your work originated as honest, straightforward, documentary  
It, with some noted exceptions I'm sure, will not easily translate  
into the kind of vision exampled on these pages.
