Nice pics, I love street photography, I just don't do it myself... Love the last pic for pose, composition and lighting. Attractive model too..

She is the wife of the photographer showing me how to use multiply flashes with soft boxes. Fun stuff to play with but does slow you down doing street photography.

Number three and four are my favorites - Both catch my interest.

I'm not into "portraits" as Street Photography, and this is a matter of taste. So ignore the fact that I Ignored them...

Number one, if a full body shot, AND if the highlights hadn't of been blown, would have also got a good comment. It also appears soft? A hair out of focus?

The first picture due to the type of lighting really should have had a backdrop. That's why the second shot was done using the tree as a backdrop. Lighting was two soft-boxes and a strobe on on the tree (backdrop) which does make street photography a bit more interesting as everyone walking by knows you are there and what you are doing.

As for not liking all the pictures in the set, everybody has their own preference as to what they like or dislike. I learn a long time ago that you can't please everybody with every picture.

My editor (the wife) just told me that my Statement "As for not liking all the pictures in the set, everybody has their own preference as to what they like or dislike. I learn a long time ago that you can't please everybody with every picture." doesn't sound the way I meant it to come across. She feels it comes across a bit hard and that is definitely not what I was trying to say. Just meant that I understand not everyone is going to like every picture I take and that is cool with me. Heck I don't like every picture I take.
