    I like it ... the background colours are very vibrant and suit the subject matter! The one thing I'd say would be that it'd be nice to see some detail in the gujy on the rights face

    On an aside ... the punk rockers bring back some ' back in the day' type memories!

    Very nice shot, nice vibrant colors. Shadow on the guy on the right's face is a bit harsh though. And what is that on the left? It's a bit distracting.

    Cool colors and I love the clouds hanging out in the top right of the frame. The light seems harsh.

    Exposing to the face would have resulted in possibly a better shot of the individuals however you may have washed out the other colours.

    All in all - great place to go and a great atmospheric shot.

    cool shot. nice colors and subject. did you try the shot with a flash? it could get rid of some of the hard shadows on the faces. it's weird how flat it looks. what kind of camera did you use? did you get any close ups of the mohawk guy? i like the contrast of his hair on the sky. cool pic

    Agree on the faces. Dude on the right seems kinda forgotten, I'd like to see more of his face and the real bright colors done in photoshop, seem, just a tad overpowering. Otherwise, great subject.

    This is one of my favourite places to be. I just love the colour and vibrancy of the people wandering round. You captured a great shot here of a typical Camden view. Great stuff.

    Mad, gorgeous color. Wow! :thumbup: The "in-your-face" colors go beautifully with the subject matter. Really nice effect.

    My main nitpick is the composition....I wish that Levi's sign wasn't coming out of the face of the guy on the right. If it weren't there, just the solid blue building, it would be more effective.

    But I still like it a bunch. :)
