    #2 is my favorite. the angle suits it very much. both angles actually...the fact that you tilted the subject, and shot from underneath. i like that he's looking one way, as though he's searching for something to the right, and the woman in the car is searching to the left...are they looking for each other?...did they just miss one another? were they supposed to meet here? i dig that it sorta tells a story without knowing anything about them.

    on the crit side...it's slightly dark...though it may work for this image.
    and it does appear to be a little soft.

    nice series.

    ^^^ agree 100% with above.

    Some interesting shots, a few too many to comment on intensely, but LOVED #2.

    I very much like those. Except for #1 which doesn't do anything at all for me.

    When I look at street photography, I don't look for perfect photography. Technically speaking that is. I look for feelings and you have those. I am with SrBiscuit in that I will write myself a story about what is going on in the photos. That is the fun of street photography, I think.

    You should have posted those in Javier's thread. Good job.

    #2 really jumps out at me. The others are interesting as well, but #2 is really strong.

    I think he means cropped when composing (assuming he's using an SLR where he purposfully cropped) or if he's using a rangefinder (made a composition mistake) The pics look filmy. Are they film or digital?

    Digital, but the fact that you say they look "filmy" is a great compliment ;)

    The 3rd pic is cropped because it was naturally cut of by one of the stations pillars, so i chose to cropped it out to what it looks like now.

    Thank you everybody for the comments, i just started street photography and it is MUCH harder than i thought...

    keep it coming,

    Peter

    I think 1 is nice, it doesn't do anything special for me, but it's a good pic. 2 is probably my favorite, I love the way you used angling to give it a unique look. The 3rd I think is ok, I like the decision to use b&w for that one.
