The setting provided some nice framing, via the lights of the booth of the bawker.

Well-spotted.. nice shot. Good good composition as per your usual.


Going to hazard a guess that because of the lighting conditions (exposure, et al).. that there is some.. some, that is/was.. motion blur?

As the vendor's arms are a bit 'soft'.

Still, and with that said.. I like this one a lot.

And.. but, of course.. thanks for sharing this photographic slice of life with us.

(p.s. Re: "What is happening to Caedes?"

My inner imp couldn't be held back, so..

Kind of.. meh, doncha' fink?

I mean, it is a 'pleasant shot'.. however..

>:D )

Ok, Rob, disregarding your previous commentator, lol, I'm going to say that I quite like this...I am particularly fond of urban street scenes anyways, and given the lighting challenge and the reach of this guy as he engages in his duties, I'd say you did a darn good job on the timing, lighting, and overall that I've succeeded in getting a photo from you, I DO hope you'll remember us and give up a few more in the not too distant future.

Thank you, Connie and Pat. Much obliged. Pat.. as for additional images.. I don't really think I'm interested in returning to active status here, so probably not. Sorry. But feel free to look me up in Instagram. name there is eyeofgotham.

Yes, Les, there's a bit of soft motion blur on the subject's arms. Even with the wide open aperture of the lenses I was shooting with, (Olympus 40-150/2.8 or 75/1.8.. I forget which) certain sacrifices need to be made in street photography where the light is dodgy. I went with lower ISO for a cleaner overall image, and accepted the light motion as being, if anything, a part of the "story". But good eye for spotting it. As for the 1x example, quite a nice selection.

Got you.. and thanks for taking the time to reply back here.

And on that note, appreciate you sharing the camera settings you employed.

I will say this, though.. it's hard to avert looking at your subject's face and eyes, in particular. So.. once more, kudos.. on composing such a strong image.
