    By looking at this, can you tell what my intended subject was? Taking a few pics at the Lexington "Street Swing" was my first-ever attempt at any kind of photojournalism, so I'm still trying to strike a balance of getting some of the action in without making the shot look too busy. How did I do here? Be honest - I can take it! (Besides, I want to learn)

    Because of the girls t-shirt, I would assume that it's a shot of people dancing in the street. Without the wording on her shirt though, it would be less obvious

    I looked straight at the two in the middle.

    I'm also assuming it's the couple in the center.

    Yes, I'd say the couple too.
    If you want to make such things clearer, use a larger aperture if your camera allows you to. Focus on your main subject and the larger aperture will make the rest of the scene blurry. That should bring out the center of attention :)

    The lady in the black t-shirt and the man who she is dancing with. In short: the couple in the middle?

    I am glad you got the writing on that t-shirt into your frame for that really helps to understand what is going on here a lot better. Why else would people in a street look into all possible directions and be captured in all sorts of frozen action movement? So yes, the t-shirt in the front is helpful

    The two in the middle grab my attention.
