This is a really cool shot, I like the woman's expression and the candid caught in the moment kind of feel. The window is shiny but not destracting and the composition is well done.

What is she thinking

This is a beautiful photo! The way she's framed by the windows, and then she's holding a frame, too makes for a really wonderful contrast. Very nice geometry and meaning here. 9

I was looking for those "surprise!" or "unaware" expressions. You got it!

good shot, on 2nd viewing i like this a lot, The only thing i would have changed would be the contrast , really pushing the tonal range. I also like the reflection in the windows. The main subject also looking a little perplexed as to why you would be taking her photo. Bumping up a point

If you'd waited on the shutter for just one or two more seconds.. but that cutting off the head really doesn't flatter this composition. Sharpness is a bit lacking as well (and contrast)

I like how the window frame crops the top of her head and puts the focus on her eyes peeking out at you peeking in. Nice job.

Your title give me the impression that you are concerned that some voters won't consider this "street photography". I agree with you that it certainly is! however I would have think another title would have been better. I don't consider titles in voting anyway, I just mention it for what it's worth (not much:)

Now for the photo: wow, really excellent grab. I love that she 'caught' you and that you captured the moment. The large window frame gives context and clarity to what I'm seeing, and nicely adds to the composition in it's own right. The hanging hearts hint at Valentines (of course we know because of the challenge date); the reflections in the window aren't distracting at all and indeed add to the feel of this being a street scene. I think you could use a wee bit more contrast, probably via dodge/burn, but this is such a minor nit-pick. One of my top picks; best of luck.

Very nice, looks like you have been caught! I think that moment makes a great photo.

I donít have much knowledge on street photography but my thoughts on you shot are as follows: I like this capture. Pity she saw you and looked at the camera. I would have preferred her not to be looking but what can you do when she has already spotted you? I also like the reflections from the street also being in the window. Nice Shot. 10
