Yeah, I'm also surprised this did so well.

Joke! You've got a masterful way of framing a scene (I've said this time and again). Obviously it's an interesting scene and a lovely capture, but it's your attention to the lines, the positions, the inclusions and exclusions of your composition that set your photos apart. Awesome stuff again.

I live vicariously through your photographs. You see the way I like to see. Thank you so much for sharing your vision!

I knew this would do well, and also figured it for yours because of the location. I think this was my only 10 in this Freestudy.

21.gif Jagar? Brilliant black and white and the scene really draws you in. A fav from me

I really enjoy the way that motion and stillness both play such a big part of this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Lovely, pure street work here. Stunningly well constructed with perfect light. An exercise in ambience transmission! Tones and textures are bang on too. Makes me want to take a deep breath for the smell of bread and coffee!

Critical stuff : No

Overall: Expertly done. I can only aspire.

Awesome street photography together with great B&W processing. My pick for a ribbon. Good luck!

Excellent shot!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2011 04:59:56 PM
Unfortunately I don't think it will happen, but this would be my pick for the Blue. Fantastic candid and the B&W treatment is perfect for the subject matter. Lots of the usual eye candy in this challenge though so I expect you will be up against some tough competition. Good luck for a strong finish in the challenge.
