    First BW post now I have it figured out. What are folks thoughts. I do this stuff with a Casio point and shoot in BW mode and find it is small and generally ignored so I can get in and do street work. Feedback appreciated. Thanks Kevin original.
     
  2. Sorry, not trying to be ignorant, but did you purposely chop off the guy's head in your shot?
     
  3. This shot would have been much better if the guy standing did not have the top of his head taken off.

    I think he chopped off his head because this style of photography is called "Chopped Suey"
     
  5. Good capture Kevin, I like it, but yea... crop out the figure on the left and leave as much negative space as possible to the left of the right side smoking man. Maybe even bring down the top to make it a square crop... I think that would be quite nice.

    I think standing further to the right to compress the two subjects would have looked better. The gap is distracting because it's right in the middle of the image bordered by two subjects to the left and to the right..

    I agree is would be better if the guys head was not cut in half, but it is still a good street photo.
