    #2 is eyeing up that little girl ;O
    the main problems are:

    #1 is too blurred your panning is off
    #2 is slightly over exposed and
    #5 is too far away

    Neat idea, but :

    1- This is too blurred to really enjoy

    2. I would have liked to have seen all of the woman in the shot as well as the man.

    3. personal preference - I don't like shots taken at odd angles, they make me feel dizzy. ;)

    5- I agree with UUilliam, its too far away.

    The black and white shots - I feel the concept is lost with B&W because in B&W they all just become look alike umbrellas.

    edit: I just realized -the last photo has a shadow from the sun??? And number 5 has a bright blue sky???? Hmmmmm

    You've a good eye for street photography. Not everyone has that. You've chosen interesting compositions and your images have character. Sure, there are niggles in the technical proficiency of these, but that's rectified by study and practice. Keep up the good work.

    Hey, I love the blur in the first shot, that would be a trademark of some street photographers. I think because the colors pop so much and the figure is so easily identifiable it works. And I lovee the second shot as well, but also would have loved to have seen the whole girl.

    I think ya did a great job, just keep working at it.

    as John said, great composition in all of the photos, I know that street photography isn't easy as it looks, despite of the some technical problems in some of your photographs, I like them a lot!

    Your color shots don't really do much for me.. They don't seem to be very sharp. I love all of your monochrome shots though. Maybe try some selective coloring?

    I thought the same thing about selective colouring!
