    Some new pics from my recent trip to Vienna, let me know what you think. (I will be moving there in January, I love the city AND I've been offered a job as a photographer for an international newspaper there! Hurrah!!!)

    Thanks DScience, this may sound arrogant but I never ask. Asking people if you can take their picture usually results in strange smiles, poses, and the aswer "No". If anyone has a problem with it I always offer to send them a print or digital copy, if that doesnt suffice I offer to erase the picture....it seems to work. Shoot first, ask questions later!

    Good idea! I like the thought of offering them a print or digital copy. However I have gotten some good responses from asking people. All of the ones i've taken I asked first, but I like the idea of the spontaneity of your methods. :thumbup:

    How can a photo be candid if you ask....LOL! Shoot and ask later if you intend to use for commercial use.

    Who said anything about candid?

    Street photography doesn't always imply candid.
