    The first two , in my opinion, are great. The third feels a bit intrusive from the angle, but good timing. I would of loved to see this picture taken from a little closer to the subject, or on the same level as him.

    the first is great I think, it would benefit from a tad more contrast though. The expression captured in his face is really nice and composition is pleasing as is DOF.


    The second one is just plain funny to look at ;)

    As for the third one, it is too confusing for me, many details which distract from the main subject ... this could be better or worse in colour , not sure since I do not know how colours were ;)

    Great captures, all of them. #1 is a great shot with all the right elements of placement and DOF but more contrast would nail it.
    I think #3 would benefit from gradually vignetting around your subject.
    Nice work, good eye.

    thanks! as for the 3rd one... I was just sitting about 20 meters above them, eating icecreams with my friend, and I just saw this scene. I grabbed my camera and with one han I just snapped. I have a few experiments with this shot tough:

    The first picture is great.

    I also like the last experiment with the selective coloring. It creates a dichotomy between the couple and the other guy that fits there position in the photo. They have a nice and colorful life while he's having a hard b&w time.

    Great to see you posting pics again, Mentos! I like them all (in b/w) ... good examples of street photography, with some humour and pathos included.

    well... when I saw the big guy I thought that he came there with a huge pitbull or whatever else is huge... and then I saw a...micro-dog york running around...
    the bloke and the micro-dog waited there for about 20 minutes and his girlfriend came...she looked similar to him - a bit extravagant, definitely different from the rest of the crowd, and she had same york as his!!!
