Default Walking Downtown

I went to two photowalks downtown Edmonton, Alberta lately. Both in front of City Hall and at the Saturday Street Market ... but with two extreme weather (the first one was cool and humid and the other one was warm and sunny):

Comments? Anything you will change?

Hey Gilles,

These are great, the first is my favorite (it has a wow factor to it). All the images, subjects and composition, are really good IMO.

I personally do not like any image turned B&W with selective coloring but again your subjects & comps are really good.

The bike frame seems to tell a story; then I suspect that it is not the real story------ great photograph.

Very striking series of shots. Well done.

(My question is: who left the tennis shoes in the middle of downdown? LOL)

Still looks a tad bit cool in your neck of the woods judging by the dress on the street. Cool seems nice right about now

Always like well-done fisheyes with architecture. Your dramatic processing works very well with the next-to-last image and the first image is original and neat.

I always enjoy to look at fisheye shots, but I don't think it's something I could get used to using myself. I think I like the shots of the two trees seemingly joining together above the street.
