Photos with lots of reflections are very popular. Most of them are also very confusing, If a reflections pic is to be successful on grounds other than confusion it need a strong subject such as you have here. But when you have the strong subject you gotta ask your self if all the confusing reflections are helping you. In most cases I think reflection shots like this are just confusing.

I think that street is so appealing because its not only so much about the humanity going on around you but also the humanity of the photographer. Here we have almost perfect placement of the protagonests the girl so clealy out front and two disparet groups sharing nothing but bluejeans and the pavement in common what a happy jusxtipositon and the humanity in you Frank made you push that button dispite the golden tower growing out of her head.

There ar at least as much black trousers as jeans in the background.

I see more a " HE "  ( an  older senior photographer) hunts by night than a "SHE" ( a nicely dressed up young girl) hunts by night .

cheers

interesting shot, solve. the umbrellas in the fg alone would be a worthy subject. the activity in the more distant bg makes it all more complex and interesting to look at.

the tones seem a bit odd to me. probably tone mapped (shadows raised a great deal) making the lightest grays look too dark, while the darkest tones are relatively light.

i like the sense of readability and detail and lightness, but not so much the odd relation of tones to each other.

In reply to fad, Apr 21, 2013

What I enjoyed about shooting the chess players that day was that they stay in the same place, they ignore you, there is interaction, there are tonal contrasts....all the obvious. And you don't find any in a small town in Connecticut. In fact, it is rare that you see anyone sitting. Everyone is doing something or going somewhere. And this reminds me to do some sitting around this summer and wait for the pix to come to me. The population triples in the summer, a good thing for me, because I can walk the length of Main Street and see a total of 3 people and one dog.

Thank you, Chris - comments like this are so helpful to me when i convert to B&W, or when I'm looking at pix. You so often nail what it is that I haven't been able to explain to myself, or see.

Thank you for the comment. Actually, I played with the tones. I wanted a low-contrast picture. If it does not work, sorry.

Keep at it, solve.   Trying different things that fail, making plenty of mistakes, is the only true path forward.

The expression and atmosphere are great.

I think that it could be a lot better in b&w as the tone changes here are very prominent. Especially the texture in the woman’s dress. so the white bg against the fg.
