    Boy and girl share a glance, checking each other out - a stolen moment on a street corner.

    I know they aren't in focus, but I kinda like that, it adds to the tension for me.

    What do you think?

    It's cool. Ideally the subjects would be in better balance to each other, but street photography is never ideal. Kudos for picking up on the subtle nuances of those around you. You have an acute awareness of the human psyche :)

    Gracias Senor!

    I missed the shot of him preening his hair whilst using a CD for a mirror, and I'm not sure of the human psyche bit, but I do like watching people ;)

    i try to be positive, but without knowing the story, the photo just doesn't have that tension you describe... i don't think i would have noticed the two people really looking at each other without you telling me. Sorry.
