:welcomeclan :welcomeclan :welcomeclan I'm glad to see you posting. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

What is it you are showing us? The black and white conversion is OK. I like street photography but usually the subjects are doing something. What were you trying to express here?

Ok I had another look, and going my the title, " Waiting " The people waiting for the bus. I would crop the area to the left and perhaps adjust the dof so the bus is in focus. :beerbang:

Ok I had another look, and going my the title, " Waiting " The people waiting for the bus. I would crop the area to the left at the point of the 67 in the bus stop sign, and down from the top below the street light, that would make it a different picture, have the bus in focus since it is part of the subject... Great idea, and again welcome

Thanks you all for your posts. As Darrell said, the picture is about "waiting", and they are waiting for the bus... I tried to capture the sadness and the tiredness of their faces/body....
I followed Darrell advice and cropped it..... in deed it's another picture.... I like it better, thanks!
I kept the focus on the guy on the right, since I considered the people as main players
THANK YOU ALL!!!!
Here's the cropped picture

I can see that everyone is waiting on something, but to be honest that sign hanging on the building is sticking out more then the people waiting.

Thanks for your post! That sign is in fact the bus stop, and people are waiting for one of those buses, when I took the shot, I wanted it to be important, so I'm glad it stuck up :agree: . If it wasn't there, it wouldn't be possible to know what was the people there waiting for :)

I like the idea and the conversion was nice but I think the problem lays int he angel in which you took the photo had you positioned yourself at an angel just a lil more either to the right or left side it would be more clear as to what was going on and would have given a better presentation. When dealing with what's supposed to be a key item ( the bus) in the background the sign being that close to you draws attention away from the people and the bus because its in the immediate depth of field. IT was a great try and nice idea just need to work on the technique a lil more.
