Challenge: Street Photography In Black and White (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D7000
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Date: May 14, 2013
Date Uploaded: May 14, 2013

I was about to call a halt to my evening's so-so attempt at street photography when this guy (a total stranger) walked through the archway dressed in black and wearing a hat. I thought OMG I have to get a photo of this. He looked uncertain when I asked to take his photo but then said OK. After that I couldn't get him to stop smiling for the camera. In the end I just said look sideways.

The profile against the lighted part of the arch plus the long coat, blowing, and the stance make this very effective. Top five for me. Voted earlier. Back to comment.

Good shot. More of a portrait than a street photo. But very well composed and lit. Excellent contrast.

Looks like an ad - love the contrasts and the sun in the background.

Nice dynamic range. A bit too much contrast for my taste, but it doesn't detract from the photo.

Outstanding image. Looks a bit like a model posing, but I'll assume it's candid. Some halos showing behind man.
