That's pretty funny. Great capture. And congrats on 4th place! Too bad you just missed the ribbon. I can sympathize with you, 'cuz I got fourth place in the Candid III challenge.

Well done Oliver! I had hoped to see this just a tad bit higher but how can you complain. Great work and my fave of the challenge.

Great street image like the duo tones. :)

:)...i like it
02/24/2007 06:48:50 AM
I've looked at this three times now. Other than the obvious - the gentlemen's expressions and stances, what adds immensely to this for me is the head in the window, and for some reason, the fur coats hanging there. Intriguing and engaging.

02/23/2007 04:52:01 PM
I like this one a lot. the opposite hands to their mouths, and the balance of it all.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2007 03:18:12 AM
a nice old world feel to it and the coordinated expressions on the models adds such a wonderful twist to it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2007 12:56:59 AM
good shot~
02/22/2007 09:44:29 PM
just bumped to 9 although there is something about the colours that don't sit right for me. other than that I love it the slight fall in the ground to the right makes the elder gent look even smaller.

If this was called Steptoe & Son(UK Program from the 70's) it would be great,
nice photo but i wish the people here could be a little sharper
02/22/2007 02:22:14 AM
Great moment. Their mirrored postures and expressions make this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 03:03:05 PM
Very funny!! the top sign states: "talk to us". Great caption, seems to be a little out of focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 02:15:50 PM
Can't quite figure out if there is an uneasy peace or a comfortable one between these two men. The composition and b&w conversion are great. Very good!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lots of 'feel' to this shot, I feel like I'm standing across the street watching them. Great the way their body language mirrors each other. 8

02/20/2007 11:17:51 AM
LOVE this!
Defines street photography in my eye with the photographer as the invisible witness and strong narrative.
Well done
gorgeous tonal values as well 9

i like this, each character with his own story.. they indeed make an odd couple, well captured.

Great title for a fantastic picture. I love the slight sepia tone, the composition is excellent.... Everything about this shot works. 10.

I like this one a lot - Very similar to mine! But I like yours better.

02/19/2007 07:33:43 PM
Very nicely done.
02/19/2007 03:49:36 PM
I love the gritty feel of this photo. There they are standing right next to each other but couldn't be farther apart if they tried. I think this is excellent street photography.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 01:33:04 PM
Love the way their postures mirror each other just a little with their hands up to their mouths. Lots to look at, very interesting and good composition too. Like the high contrast black and white with nice toning applied. Seems a touch oversharpened to me.

02/19/2007 11:44:40 AM
AWESOME!!!
02/19/2007 11:08:40 AM
incredible capture ... like the processing you've done also ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 10:11:42 AM
WONDERFUL. This has that urban/human combination that I think is essential in street photography. Great tones. The juxtaposition between the two men is really symbolic: tall, short; young, old; head of hair, bald. The list goes on and on. Bravo.

Great observation. I love this shot.

This was the first image up when I came through and did my first round of voting. Woe to the rest of the challenge entries as they had alot to live up to. Great image. It made me stop righ tof fthe bat and look around. Perfect editing. Has a feel of an old time photo. Great work. Bumping up 1 and adding to my faves.
