Thanks Ed. I got the rangefinder camera to learn to shoot at the appropriate times, to best capture the essence of interaction. There is a lot more to it than just watching and waiting! I keep going back to that Gary Winogrand movie. It takes keeping the camera in my hands all the time.Both very cool.
Not sure what it is you are supposed to be getting, but I like these.

Thanks Stephen! Well then, here's one more from the 'bar series':I like the bartender shot. Perhaps a bit more burn or recovery on the background hilites..? How many of those bartender shots did you make? Looks like a few more of the same ilk would make an entertaining series.
The one with the two maidens could stand severe cropping at the top. Like just above the reflectors on that trailer body.
Keep yer eyes on the road!
Both of 'em would benefit from more "pop".
I'll work on cropping the chicks under the truck said:I spec' yo's right.
