Canon R6, RF24-240mm @ 50mm, iso 400, F8, 1/100 sec

Taken on a street photography walk this month, just looking to see what was out there. The only processing was a crop and adjustment in Lightroom.

intersting shot - I don't have much experience with street photography... Like the moment that you've captured. Particularly like the plants in the phonebooth - very intersting. My eye is drawn to the front left - you've cut the end of the steps off, which I realize was necessary to get rid of much of the background items on the left side, but my eye's getting stuck on that front corner poking out. Wonder if could transform / warp it a little to fit that in while keeping the essence of your crop. Interested in others' suggestions... Thx   Posted: 06/05/2021 17:10:14

Terry, have the phone booths all been converted to gardens? I have a bunch a pix taken in them, just so wonderful and object!

We have a lot of interest going on with the phone booth and the sweeper and the old door. What about a crop to remove the step lines and the top left blown out sky? Or drop in a sky? Here's a quick crop.

Most now have been, especially in Bath as they don't have a use any more but are historic. Some of the villages put a 'library' in them where you can leave or take a book at will.

The crop does simplify the image, which now only has 3 elements.

Terry, I like the image but feel the subject is the man and the phone booth. In my revision I cropped out much from the left side of the image, some from the bottom and much of the doors. I also selected and brightened the foliage inside the booth. I also darkened and blurred the area behind the booth so as to emphasize it moore.   Posted: 06/08/2021 15:27:29

Funny I got to editing before I looked at the comments and I see Brenda and Terry were both on to a similar idea that I had which was to crop in on the booth, door, and man. Adding my crop here as well though pretty similar to Brenda.

I do like his red striped socks and how they match the red on the phone booth amidst the otherwise wet and somewhat muted scene.   Posted: 06/15/2021 15:26:19

I like this Jason, keeping all 3 elements, and the steps straightened. Like Brenda I'd missed the red socks.
