I saw the two ladies sat on the bench as i was taking another shot, i initially dismissed the pair as nothing much was happening. As i started to walk off i saw them both look at their watches and in a flash of panic i managed to get 4 shots off.

The chopped off feet was the reason i nearly didn't enter this shot as i thought i would lose a lot of marks, thankfully the voters have been kind and the image has stayed above 7 all week.

I normally hit the update button a lot for all my entries but due to my score being well above my PB i have become a complete addict, so as soon as this is over i am going into rehab.

Just been looking this shot again due to the pending street photography challenge. I find this really inspirational in defining that 'decisive moment' that is so important in street photography.

Congratulations on the red. Wonderful candid capture and I love the synchronicity. I don't think I noticed the chopped off feet till you mentioned it because the faces and hands (and handbags) keep my attention.

OMG this is amazing. Just beautiful photography.

I suppose seeing the feet in entirety would make it an 11 but would have given it a 10 for sure ;)

Had a feeling this might have been yours when the Tesco bag pegged it as being a shot from the UK. Great image Jon and a well deserved ribbon.

"Capture an interesting candid moment this week". I think you have done that perfectly. Shame about the cropped feet, and I feel a slight tilt when I look at the image like it is slightly off balance. Nice processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2011 03:08:15 PM
This made me smile, although I wish their feet hadn't been cropped off, looks a bit odd, especially on the younger woman.

A great one.

Terrific shot and great processing. Front page - just a question of how far up. The only little niggle is the chopped off feet.

Stunning shot. Everything about it works. There seems to be a bit of movement however... possibly slower shutter speed? But that's only minor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2011 03:08:40 PM
This one would do equally well for symmetry. In my top 3, great work.

bumping up, my pick for blue
