About the Image(s)

Recent street photography session in the city, this is in laneway. He is checking his phone, she is checking him out! Fujifilm XT-20 f11, 1/125sec, iso 800, 34mm. High ISO to get speed up as laneway in the shade.

Jill. Super photo! I love the colors, and the expressions on their faces. Such clear glass and little reflection. Nice job!   Posted: 06/04/2022 20:20:42

Great shot! I love the woman checking out the guy walking. And, the Fishbowl sign adds a lot to the shot.   Posted: 06/05/2022 09:10:13

Great image, all parts of it work. I like how the guy is walking along, apparently oblivious to all but his phone. I like how he is walking into the image (more room in front of him) and that he is not over lapping the woman. The look on the woman's is priceless, too bad for him that he doesn't notice. To my eye the merger of the Fishbowl sign with the edge of the image is a little distracting. Overall, a great image.   Posted: 06/13/2022 14:54:10

When it works it works - the man walking past a shop, the lady "checking him out" and the shop called fishbowl - so who is in the fishbowl. Like Lou, only comment is the shop name is slightly cut off.   Posted: 06/17/2022 06:06:30

Really good timing to get the guy in the light. Cutting off the Fishbowl signage is not distracting to my eye. You got the guy that is what counts for story telling. Excellent capture of street happenings.   Posted: 06/17/2022 08:30:09
