    Good eye for people. The photo of the boy is charming. The second one, on the subway, is a great social observation/commentary. Outstanding framing, too. The only thing that I might suggest is fixing the color balance in the first and the second one (the first one in particular is so tinted blue that it overwhelms whatever message there may be in the picture).

    BTW, your "Lunch break at Verizon" is a really nice shot, too.

    I agree with hwyhobo on the subway pic. Interesting contrast of old vs. new. Good job.

    Nice pictures. I love Japan, especially Tokyo subways.

    How do you like the Sony DSC-F717? I have one but I haven't used it much. Did you use manual or AE settings when taking the photos?

    I also like the subway shot-good example of finding interest in the everyday.

    Sundog:
    On the Sony

    pros:
    GREAT lens
    hot shoe for external flash if needed
    good battery life
    pretty accurate viewfinder
    night shot capable

    cons:
    that honkin' lens is large, a pain to haul sometimes
    memory sticks only
    When I bought this, a 5x optical was not common, it is now in smaller packages

    I generaly use the camera on auto, but it has a pretty quick exposure adjustment that i frequenly use. Sometimes I use shutter or aperture priority, depending on useage.
