>>> Street Photography eXchange #57 <<<
4

SPX is a place to post examples of your recent street photographs for feedback, discussion and critical appreciation.

PLEASE post new photos as a reply to THIS MESSAGE directly, to help keep the thread organized and readable! Posting in “threaded view” will make immediately clear to you where you want your reply to be appended when responding to other photos and comments.

The street photography we love encompasses a wide variety of styles and subjects, but usually centers on spontaneous shots of people in public. You can emphasize personalities and expressions, momentary juxtapositions, form, composition, color; you can record life as it is lived, or flashes of the surreal, or moments of transcendence. Among the pioneers of the genre are Henri Cartier-Bresson; Helen Levitt; Robert Frank; Garry Winogrand; Mary Ellen Mark; and certainly many more. Street photography would not be what it is today without them, and no doubt is on its way to becoming something else again, with your help.

This is intended as a serial, ongoing thread, and will be replaced whenever the 150 post limit is approached; past threads will be numbered and linked in the current active thread.

As a continuous feature, the goal is to sustain an ongoing discussion and exchange of ideas and inspiration about street photography, as well as to get to know other photographers a little better. Everybody with an interest in SP is welcome to post photos, write comments and critiques, or just to lurk; please don’t be shy about participating in whichever and however many ways you like! But, posting your own photos helps people to understand where your comments are coming from, and commenting on other’s work can help us to see where your own pictures are coming from... so we hope you decide to do both.

SPX is an excellent place to share your latest favorite shot, the beginnings of your newest project, the discovery of a new approach to making the shots you want to make. Sharing works in progress, as opposed to completed portfolios, is encouraged; you can expect some genuine, hard, but positive critique here, and commenters will be able to fulfill that expectation better if you post no more than 1-3 photos at a time.

Re: late blooms

Perhaps a slight rotation to straighten the horizon? This will force a crop but losing one of the ladies on the left is hardly fatal; that being said, how would it look with the flower lady's shadows brought up a half stop-ish?

Bloomberg's Eden (carried forward from last thread)

I have posted a very long and tedious analysis of my own photo, the short version of which is that the policeman in the photo is the secular version of the angels with fiery swords that keep us out of the original Eden from which Adam and Eve were expelled.

The skinny is that the modern city is a secular Eden, but most of us are incapable of enjoying it to the full because of lack of money, lack of time, various forms of obsession, etc.

My learned wife thinks I am over-interpreting the photograph.   But I'm sticking with my story.

I agree with your wife- as one who wore a badge in NYC, it's simply a cop cashing in on some OT.

I like the first three the best, and of these my favorite is the first one. There is lots to enjoy in the frame.

Re: hands in market 1

Such a fine photo, close to perfect....and it so cries for more at the top. Can you go back and wait and aim a smidge higher? Another DM is sure to come along.
