Great series - did you get any more of the women in the last pic? She looks like she would be a great subject....

This is a nice series but they look a little washed out. Have you tried a curves or contrast adjustment?

Nice to see images from your neck of the woods. The image with the musician and the young lady speaks volumes. Nicely done...keep the images coming.

I like the last three, the isolation of the subject help me stay interested in the picture. The last is my favorite because of the interest she is showing in his playing....she is also very colorful!

I walked around Whyte Ave for about an hour and saw her a couple of times. She appeared to me to be about 15-16 y/o. Interesting style but seemed kinda creepy for a 40 something y/o man with a camera lurking on a busy street taking pictures of people.
What a great series! Bravo!!
Thanks, I am glad you enjoyed it.

I am using a new monitor and this is about the 1st images I have processed and posted with it. Do they look washed out to anyone else? I noticed on a couple pics there seems to be that bluish/grey hue as if I used a polarizing filter which I didn't.

I didnt get a lot of shots as I felt rather conspicuos (sp?) hanging around a busy street taking pics of people. One girl, while I was waiting to cross the street approached me and said "Hey whatcha got your camera out for?" I replied "I am taking pictures!" (in my mind I was thinking - Heres your sign...)

I liked her colorful style, really seemed appropriate with the musician...

I was walking back to my car when I saw her sitting with him. I thought perfect why hadn't she been there an hour before when I took the other pics. I agree with everyone else. I think her funky look really makes the shot.

In the first shot I wanted to see what it would look like with the musician on the corner with the names of the business split on both sides of the building. One side is a Cocktail Bar and on the other is a Fine Bistro with the same header name... Continental Treat. I tried to split the name purposely but I guess no one picked up on that...

Thanks for all the kind comments....
