I agree that was a great post. Although as he alludes to Joe Voter will have a very different opinion when it's all said and done.

That really depends on the city, and then within the city the area. Most of our "city" streets aren't nearly that busy and I'd imagine that to be true for many that don't live in a major metro area.

For me, this is one of the best "Street" photos I've seen. One of the best photos - period.

I believe by pointing out the excellence of this photo, you've scared off a number of would-be participants in the Street Photography challenge and robbed them of a chance to learn. Your post has been reported and your 40 lashes will be administered post haste.

but ... but ... but ... there is no sepia tone ... there is no added grain ... there are no break dancing kids with ragged clothes on ... there are no skateboarders or rollerbladers ... there are no panhandlers standing or sitting in front of posters or grafitti ... the subject is LOOKING at the "should be invisible" photographer ...

I think this would get a DNMC vote from 5 to 8 different whole groups of voters that "know" what true street photography is.

The opinion is growing on me that most people who claim to "know" what _any_ kind of photography is, are simply far too full of themselves.

This is exactly why I have decided to stop doing challenges after my current entry for a while. The voters are all the "experts" who know exactly what the photographer should be shooting. It is no longer about what the photographer interprets or sees. The photographers view or artistic expression even when it falls within the description of a challenge is no longer valid. A sad thing is happening here.

Without digging deep, I went into my own favorites and say any of these would be excellent representation of shots that would do well in this challenge. Study them. They all have stories. Doesn't have to be B&W, though will probably score better if it is.

In no particular order:

350309.jpg 279671.jpg 150032.jpg 189351.jpg
182063.jpg 58870.jpg 159868.jpg 425532.jpg

Ok, maybe not the last one, but I like adding that one
in here and there just for shits & giggles...

I wasn't being a dick ... I was just pulling legs with my tongue in my cheek, poking fun at how many different ideas there are out there of what "true" Street Photography is and how varied the opinion is of what even QUALIFIES for a "Street Photography" Challenge.

I think it is SO funny that some people seem to be saying Street Photography does not conform to other peoples' standards ... so CONFORM to those who have gone before you and honour their legacy ... LOL!

Take a vallium.

Those are great photos which got me thinking... What are the chances that an American photographer shooting in America will win this challenge? I'm guessing the odds are not that great.

I think it could happen but not in most of our cities.

thank you!


Just an Idea for a similar "Street Photography" shot.
This is a great shot maybe lay down the umbrella in front of theto take a person sitting on the bench and shoot them Both into the scene. Just tell the person "Wathch this, I'm going take a photograph of my umbrella", then do it quickly before he tries to get out of the picture.

I thought I'd upload some shots I took last July and September, when the sun was shining and temperatures weren't sooo cold as today.

Does the one without people qualify as Steet Photography?

Curious, why not just use a friend instead that way you don't have to worry about them leaving the picture?
