    #5 looks like a thinner version of Sol from Ocean's movies.

    Also the chick in #4, is she covering up because you shoved a camera in her face, or some other reason?

    #5 is awesome... sort of a contrast between old and new. Not sure about the black area in the lower left though.

    Thanks, and she was blocking the harsh sun. I'm pretty sure :lol:

    Hmm may seem like it looking at these, but I have a tonne of shite photos without anything pretty :p

    One of my favs too, though the darkness on the left I like, it's like he is walking out of the shadows.

    Cheers for the comments guys :thumbup:
    If I can keep this "look" up, I may have found my style :tongue:

    3, 5 & 15 do it for me.

    Call 5 "Walking in my shoes" and I would crop out the shopping bag dude from 15

    17 is an amazing capture, just love how crisp, cool and composed she looks, B&W is spot on, and the word "killer" on the newspaper just rounds it out perfectly :thumbup:

    I have a few more of the guy sitting down, alone. Square crops, I will post tonight as I'm at work.

    Thanks mate :) I actually pulled out the 135 f2.8 Zuiko for the first photo and got a few street candids with it. I'm keen to see what you think so will maybe start a new thread with them, see what the general feeling is.
    It's such a different feeling and look using tele in the street. Both more personal and isolated, more of a cold feeling. From what I shot anyway.

    Thanks, I have a thing for people and newspapers. I didn't really notice the "killer" line, but "killer" and "jail" just affirms the sense of authority she exudes :D
    Only 2 good ones so far, hoping to build up a collection on this theme over time.


    A couple more for fun:

    Thank you mate :thumbup:
    Gotta catch up again soon.


    I printed #1 as an 8x12 and framed it, touched it up for print:

    Over sharpened the print version a tad, and could maybe drop the exposure .1 of a stop, but still looks great framed :)
