Paul, this is a truly great street set!!! #2 is hilarious, but the best for me is #1. That's a shot people can wait ages and never get. It is for me the culmination of everything that makes a compelling and great street shot: The theme that happens only in the mind of the shooter, the decisive moment, the touch of humour and an artistic saying. What more can you ask for? It is a prize winner for sure.

Thanks for sharing, and I know I'll come back to the first many more times.

hi dov

thank you very much for those kind and thoughtful words, im humbled by them.

now i have looked at no1 a lot more, it has a look to me like it could have been staged, but i have to add, if i had staged it, i would have got all the feet in the frame, as it was i wasnt expecting two guys to walk round the corner and wave. i have spent so long in the road at this spot over the past 12mths or so, its a wonder that i have not been run over or picked up for suspicious loitering.

the second shot could not have happened without the xp1`s OVF allowing me to see what was coming into the frame, not quite a RF, but similar in this respect.

very best
