I really like this one, although it's not 100% on the "Street" theme....so I don't expect it to do that well.

Was going to use my strobe to lit it up but didn't have to because of the strong sunlight.
Little PS work, basic RAW, bumped the contrast up and little levels and curves.

This looks too posed to be believable. I'd have preferred to see the power poles eliminated, as well as some dodging on the subject's (model's?) case to help pull the viewer's attention there.

I guess my interpretation of street photography was that people would go out and take candid shots. I find it hard to believe that a woman would be out in the middle of nowhere, in the cold, without a coat and purse, and pose for you instead of running towards you because she wants to get out of there! Came back to edit and add that this sounded harsher than i intended it to sound. I like the pic but it does not quite fit this challenge.

For some reason, she looks familiar. I love the leading lines here, and you even got some from the sky! Nice work.

Although I really like the road and colors, this looks a little contrived to me, sorry!
02/24/2007 09:39:48 AM
it's just not believable to me...just sayin

This must be Iceland again with that low sky scene.... ? I just love those skies.

This capture has some terrific elements and the colors all pull each other together nicely. I'd like to see more of her shadow, as it pulls strongly at the viewer's eye to lead it right out of the frame, and I'd like to see a little bit of fill flash on her face to balance out the shadow/highlight that the sun created there. I really, really like how the road pulls my eye deeeeeep into the image and leaves me looking to see what else is back there.

Looks a bit too posed.
Beautiful sky mind

Cool. Nice model and great colors
02/22/2007 12:40:44 PM
personally I'd have had your subject more over to the right. quite like the vignetting effect

nice image, but seems too staged for street photography
02/21/2007 11:32:27 AM
brave of you.

Looks like a highway not a street , Also she is dressed light for the conditions seems odd. The piprline is more powerful than the old lady, also she is standing over the tyre tracks and that may be dangerous.

But the thing I do not understand is the dark area at the lower part of the image.

This looks a little too staged for my idea of capturing street photography.

appears too posed and I feel street photography is basially candid. Colors are very nice though.

great sky but somehow there is something missing here, she doesn't look "candid" but maybe she is not supposed to. maybe if she had been standing a bit more to the right the photo would have been "stronger"? I don't know.

great composition. Love the sky. The road kindof reminds me of the movie Seven.
