I wish I had a fisheye for this shot.

I will probably get hammered because it is not your "typical" candid street photography.

I must thank ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' VitaminB and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jeger for their help on this shot. We spent the afternoon together trying to get some shots for the upcoming challenges and after a couple of hours I had nothing. So we went back to this spot and this is what I came up with. Thanks guys.

This is a great shot in many aspects... composition, colors, post processing, etc.
The one important thing that led me to vote a bit low on this one was because it looked all 'setup' and not 'candid'.

very cool shot Leo, bot composition and processing are great. congrats on your ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That was one of the ones that cought my attention during voting time. I like the setup/concept. I would've cropped out the right side closer to his foot, but it must be ribbon quality this way, too. Congratulations to somewhere-in-Canada.

Added: Using two spray cans emphisizes the urgency of the artist.

Nice work Leo. Not "typical" street photography, not least of all for the edgy processing, so good to see it finish well.

A little posed, the colors bring it to the top of the pile congratulations on the ribbon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2008 12:05:34 AM
Yeah, you got "hammered", if you can call a yellow ribbon instead of the blue "hammered". I gave it a 5, and it would have normally gotten a 7 or 8 from me, but you already got my comment about that. It takes a really strong image to overcome that. Congrats on a great entry.

This one could ribbon. My personal taste... a bit too slick for a street photo but a really great image.

Ya need a shave dude!!! This is awesome ... love the colours love the POV very cool shot!!!

I really like this, it has a clear urban feel. However it looks staged and not really the kind of thing that is true street photography. I apologize if that is an incorrect assessment.

Recropping with my browser so that the man is on frame right instead of the middle, to me, makes a stronger shot. I feel the space on the right doesn't add to the shot. Post processing and colors are very fitting for your image.

Good editing. It suits the scene well. - No Vote
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really really like this. You've captured a grungy street feel whilst still using bright colors & sharpness. the composition is right on, I love how his body is positioned in the frame, with a spray can in each hand and the graffiti framing his head. my blue ribbon pick. 10

Great colors. I see a lot of attitude in this.

Very colorful, great perspective, nice energy to this. I suspect this will be in the top ten at a minimum.

Im not a big fan of this type of HDR processing BUT, you did a great job. I would love to see the original.

Very nice. looks like Rudy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2008 01:36:09 PM
Very well done. I love the setting, the angle, and the spray. I am voting on this as it was not a set-up image that you took. It takes away form the story if this was a set up image. However, it is one of my favorites in the challenge. Great street image with alot of character to it.

Oh yes! This is awesome street photography. Wish something like this were going on when I was walking endless thru my urban streets looking for something more interesting than tourists and shoppers :)

Way to set up a shot, very urban indeed.

10/27/2008 06:54:14 AM
Dunno if it's street but it's good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2008 02:28:52 AM
I like this shot - I don't think it is candid but the color and tones are so edgy and "street smart" my vote is a 9 and I predict a top 5 finish for you on this one.
