I kind of like this one. I am not good at predicting scores, so I am guessing my current overall average. At the moment, I am thinking that might be a bit optimistic.

My first instinct was to guess it was going to be a tiny violin. My second was to just guess my average. Lesson: go with your first instinct.

Would you be willing to tell us the story behind the emotions on these faces, please. Surely it is more than just a tardy bus. Thanx!

the winter hohums and the exceptional startle. I am sorry for our lives. You will get less because it isn't pretty, say, 5.7888.

I love the expressions and want to know the story - what are they looking at? And why is the center subject so startled or disturbed looking while the others, esp the one on the right, are so blase. I would be much closer to your score if it wasn't for the tones, light, on the center subject's face. Very distracting whether it was blown in the taking or in the processing. I gave it a five. Guessing 5.4

Makes you wonder what they are looking at.... nothing too bad or shocking or it would be expressed on their faces, but I'm guessing something more than just waiting for the bus! 5.8

They look like bvy's subjects and she got something in her pocket :-). Prediction 5.4 and a 6 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 12:19:33 PM
Usually, they look at me like that when I'm shooting :) A lot of human interest here. Nicely done. 6.4

How did you make a street shot look like a Renaissance painting? How did you find Aphrodite? I actually think this is so beautiful that even DPC will not miss it completely. 6.24
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2015 10:26:03 AM
Great candid. Great processing. Very sharp

My guess is 5.928

Nice public photograph. Agree with you 6

This is among a relatively small number of images that I think will score well. 6.0
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The bus that never comes. 5.7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 04:57:17 PM
I gave it a five. Guessing a 5.8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 10:47:37 AM
I like this - fully of drama but it looks like you've used some structure to pull in a bit more faux sharpness. I think some might find it a little coarse in its presentation. I gave you 6, I think it's worth more, but it wasn't a 7 for me.

I think you'll end up a little lower - something like 5.98
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2015 05:00:59 AM
Makes you wonder where they are looking at, but the person on the left doesn't seem part of the story. 5.738
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 07:04:45 PM
Good faces but probably won't make the 6 (my vote). My guess: 5.87.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 11:59:37 AM
I would have given it more, as I like the anticipating stare by the random crowd. I suspect the intense saturation and high contrast may work against you though. I predict 5.4742.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2015 03:52:46 AM
The fact that all these people seem to watch something interesting evokes a kind of curiosity in the viewer - 7 from me - predict 6.2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 11:48:07 PM
Looks like the bus is here! interesting street shot with all looks left, I find your choice to show it in colour refreshing! I'll agree with your prediction of 6.0714 Good Luck

Was there an alien? I like this one, maybe DPC will rate 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 07:16:57 PM
The facial expressions really make this. I have to wonder 'what is going on?'
Seven from me, predicting 6.733
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:41:39 PM
This looks like a still from a movie. I guess 6.8

A very strong candid shot from the hip by the looks of it. 6.0513

I like it. everybody has a terrifically pissed-off look- where is that bus?6.0

City looks dirty, People have a Monday face. 6.2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 12:57:43 PM
I think that whatever they're looking at (which is obviously worth looking at with alarm) would get you the 6, this I think is going to get you a 5.565
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 08:46:02 AM
Judging from the bit of experience I have with DPC voters and street... I predict 5.9.
I love the expressions .... all in their own way anticipating their own travels.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2015 03:51:35 AM
oh yea 5.95
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 10:36:06 PM
I voted before looking at titles, now commenting.

I could go for the center most woman to be in better focus. Maybe it's the filter applied that makes it look a bit soft.

My guess: 5.32
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 09:45:42 PM
Nice street scene. It creates a story with your look. I give it a 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 07:47:02 PM
The sense of anticipation is palpable. 5.98
  Photographer found comment helpful.

5.6321 (I gave it a six)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 05:05:32 PM
I gave it a 5..
I bet the avg will be a 5.2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 12:55:35 PM
I love how it feels as if we are almost too intimately close to the subjects here. I love how they are completely seemingly unaware of the camera. The texture is so detailed yet not overdone. The tones are grungy but feel completely natural. So human. So current. It is a nine from me for now. My fave of the challenge so far and I think the DPC community will agree. predict 6.92
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 06:14:52 AM
5.2 different
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2015 04:53:26 AM
This has Mark written all over it though I am probably wrong. Either way I am impressed how you can take photos of people so close to them. I like the expressions on all the people - perhaps they can see your camera is pointing in their direction or there is something interesting they are all looking at off to the right. I estimate 6.2
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 09:26:30 PM
You may be right with the score, not a great photo, but enough to leave you thinking what they could be staring at, I gave you a 6. It might get around 6.15
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 07:24:49 PM
Very good street shot. I like very much the POV. The processing is too pronounced for my taste, unnecessary sharpening in the background and halos. I took away 1 point and marked ...(erased as per challenge rules)

My guess 6.1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 06:53:30 PM
Lovely candid shot! Her expression is priceless. I guess a score around your predicted 6.07 is quite accurate.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 06:20:28 PM
I'm a big fan of street shots so I'm a little biased.
I like the contrast and I'm left wondering what they are looking at and how you were able to get this shot.
I was three points higher than your guesstimate.
Back to enter my guess, unfortunately I feel there aren't enough street lovers here to push this over a six. My guess is 5.87
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 05:37:59 PM
good group shot but whats happening ? 5.629
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 03:56:35 PM
I gave this a seven. The look on the face of the central woman appears worried and is an interesting contrast to the other three who look bored. I predict 5.6.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2015 02:33:29 PM
Hello, I voted a few days ago, now returning for comments. I think that you estimated your score a little high, I gave you a six but I predict that you will finish at 5,3347
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2015 10:40:06 AM
OK Nicely captured street moment. They seem to be looking at something sad.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2015 10:37:52 AM
I like the main face but am not keen on the image as a whole, so you are about right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2015 11:04:04 AM
Fascinating street journalism shot. Hope you will tell us what has the attention of these folks. Clearly something is quite concerning. Sharp, compelling image. Going to get better than a 6 from me.
