I went to the oldest part of Reykjavik with my daughter and her friend. I shot many nice photos but in the end we met these two nice gentlemen. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of my daughter with them sitting together on “their bench”. As you can probably tell se did NOT feel comfortable in their company.

Good B&W conversion, although maybe a tad sharp for me. She does look a bit uncomfortable siting there, but I think this adds to the scene

Good shot

Just having a look at some of the previous challenges,and this one caught my eye.
I like this, a kind of quirky feel to it.

Nice idea - slightly heavy handed on the burn for my tastes.

Nice candid. Very Winogrand. Feels a bit sharp though.
