~the b&w, as always, is the right choice for street photography IMO...I must be honest here, I am having trouble finding a focal point, I assume the woman w/ the dog is it, but as you have the frame cropped the woman on the left seems more the attention grabber as she looks back at he lens...I realize composition is always on the spot when on the street, but I wanted to ask if you shot varying frames of this moment, from alternative POV's...~

Matt, the last six posts and this image are fantastic. I love the hard softness in content in this shot. And the shot of the woman inside her car is great! Honestly, I prefer your black and white images--I'm sure you know why :)

Matt, some great shots, as usual. The first ones are easier to critique- they're simple compositions with impact that you can readily describe "why". With this last one, like btezra said, the focal point isn't as obvious- but the result is that I spent more time looking at it. It's a very likeable photo in the same manner that makes it difficult to describe why a person likes a particular song. Like a lot of your other shots, I believe the central character is window dressing for the folks around them. I believe that's often your style, which I really like.

yeah, generally the shots i like the most - or at least the shots i think are most challenging to get - are when there is a sense of the all-around moment. thanks for the comments folks.

zee, thanks. and i think i like bw best too.
