    Was she at least pretty ? I ask cause you shoot her from the back.
    Symptomatic nowadays in street shooting. You have the rights to take picture from the front, but all this screaming and yelling and calling police...
    Not worth it.

    That was taken at Fashion Institute of Technology, in NYC, where most people were used to people walking around and taking pictures, mostly for assignments in their photography classes. There was no room to stand in front of her and not crowd her, but I wasn't aiming for a portrait anyway. I liked the composition from the rear with the hat. I had a wonderful career at F.I.T. as a philosophy professor, and loved telling people I taught ethics to fashion designers. That, however, was an alternate fact. Most of my students came from the business side of the college, and were more likely to be studying management or international trade than design or illustration. But getting back to your comment: I think you are raising an interesting question about how cultural changes may be requiring changes in street photography. If no one else looks at this thread or comments on your funny/perceptive observation, I'll start a separate thread to raise just that question. (If you don't do one first.)

    I kind of like it, to me it almost seems like you were looking at her, while she is looking at the guys in the top left. Think I might slide the right crop over and give it a little more room on the left if possible to enhance that scenario.

    I agree that cropping off some of the right hand side of the frame could strengthen this photograph.

    I think the composition is very keen. I noticed it right away. I wouldn't change a thing.

    The thing I really love about this photograph, is the discs. The stack of discs around the woman. Her hat, the table, the round mounting flanges on the table and chair posts.

    Dang, are those some over-built chair posts, or what?

    Wonderful image.

    Thanks! I thought about what Derrel and Smoke665 said, but couldn't make the composition work with a crop off the right side.
