Title is "Best Friends Forever". In my candids and street photography I don't like to crop up tight. I believe it should tell a story, along with the expressions. Thanks for the comments and voting.....Joe

Nice photo. Crop that Starbucks umbrella out of there though. Way distracting.

this works. The moment looks as if the closer person is abou tto turn around but doesn't want you to see. the comp is great and the focus is spot-on. The only thing that make is less classic is the starbucks sign because this could be anywhere any time - except there's the starbucks - not that there's anything wrong with strarbucks ;P 8

Not sure what the title means (hope I am not being stupid) but I do think this is a lovely candid and you have captured a wonderful expression in the girls face

Good job

Nice capture - Love the look from the girl - Very cheeky. Just feel the cropping off of Starbucks would help as it's a bit distracting.

A giggly moment...good capture but the foreground pole and cover is not necessary. Try cropping in.

Ben Folds Five?

I would have gone with a much tighter crop on this. The girls expression is great, but the dead space 'dilutes' the photo.

crop right down to it, we don't need to know it's starbucks - that doesn't strengthen your story. From the umbrella stand over, and from the bottom of the umbrella down makes this a full 2 points stronger in my book. 6

It seems that she is has eye contact with the camera, and I like that. There is just a little too much empty space on the left side of the photo..

Strange. Having found such a scene, a moment, and then to undermine the entire faux-pictorial concept with that strange echo of the corpocratic world top right. Great job of pointing us one way only to deliver the solar-plexus blow with the hidden hand. It turns her from a pleasant looking girl having a giggle in a coffee shop into a victim, somehow.
