    I've been pushing myself to ask strangers if I can photograph them. Surprisingly, I've actually had some success. A couple were homeless and I offered them money. You'll know which shots below were the ones where I asked. The others are from a couple of past outings.

    These are great! I like #2. It has a real gritty feel to it.

    Thanks everyone. All photos were edited in Lightroom 3, which I've been using since August. I used to use ACDSee Photo Pro but switched this summer. Yes, I've added some vignetting to all shots. It's just my style. I should probably try to break away from that habit.

    I really like number 8. I like the composition, and contrast. I think it might look better if you took off a little on the right (maybe the first morter line). I might also try to dodge her eye sockets, as they seem a hair dark.

    Beautiful street photos... something I need to do and you're helping me in the inspiration department. Guessing you used your Tamron 17-50 for all of these? Great lens.. that's what I would have brought as well - forces you to get up close an personal.

    Thanks for sharing. No c&c from me, wouldn't change a thing..

    Thanks again. Yes, all shots were with my 17-50. I've been shooting at F5.6 lately whenever possible and I can see a noticeable difference in sharpness. Great lens.

    Really appreciate the generous feedback, everyone. It's interesting to see which photos people are drawn to. For the record, I think my favs are 1 and 3.
