Thanks. Actually, it is my opinion that most ladies love to have their pictures taken. So I usually raise the cam and take their picture. My wife will tell you I get away with it because of my green eyes and smile, but I don't buy that.
Love the way you've chosen to use the light and shadow to zero in on this passenger - plus the extra added attraction of great color, Olli! This particular passenger's coloring works perfectly with your shot. Good eye!!
Well..... I haven't done a days street photography for such a long time... but seeing the photos around the site, got me in the mood to have a go again. However, I have to say it really helps having a little LX5, to drop in the hand and take images at low level whilst walking... A critique would be helpful to kick me into having another go in order to improve on technique. (Really enjoyed the day though....)
Mal, I like the third one best just because it shows the interaction between these two ladies. It makes me want to know or try to guess what they were talking about - especially with the look on the face of the lady on the left. The same is true to a lesser extent of number four.
I agree that number two also works because it shows something of the character of the place with the red letter box and the signs.
