If I keep looking at these images, I'm going to get a inferiority contact. Got a quick question for you with regards to your street photography. Are you normally out of site with a long lens or do you have the guts to approach people and get real close for your images with a shorter lens? I'm still working on trying to not be so shy about taking pics of people in public. With some many expressive people in San Francisco, much like New York, I feel like I'm missing opportunities for great images b/c of my shyness or concern that people will get upset with me taking there pic.

Great shot! I buy it, it's honest! You score high here, I'd given you 10, but I'm taken away one point because of two things: 1.) The black frame, I can't stand them. 2.) I would have loved more space and a composition. Beside that, it's excellent! Good luck 9!

Very charming shot. I just wish that the face of the man on my right were a tad more sharply in focus.

This tells a story, and can just hear these two swapping old stories.
Nice touch with getting the bronze plaque in there too.

Great characters, perfect colors. I wish they had a bit more space to the L where they are looking tho and eliminate some of the dead space to the R.

I love the expressions on their faces and how happy they look! I think this image may have suited black and white too, this may have taken some of the distracting reflections in the background away (just my humble opinion) :o)

Worst: composition
