I became fascinated with street photography a few weeks ago. They gave us an early dismissal from school on monday so I went downtown to walk around lol. Here are a couple pics I took. C&C appreciated

Born and raised around Chicago too and also went to Columbia (graduated this past July)!

The first I definitely prefer more than the second, just not a huge fan of dutched angles but that's just me. Chicago is one great place to experiment with some street photography. Keep going at it!

Like #1, the matching stances and the juxtaposition of these two does it for me.
Sorry, #2 not working for me, but these are the types shots that can represent an era.

Interested to know why the change in size format between the two?

1 feels like street photography, 2 feels like something else. cover for a band photo....something. When I tink street photography I think more candid. 2 of these people are looking dead at you. Just my opinion.

#1 is done well. At first, well I thought, boring until I read the other comments and noticed what they pointed out and I love it now.

Lol I had to resize it because my mom wanted to post it on facebook, but the original size of the first one (16 megapixels) was too large.
