I took some random shots in the city while walking home, all with the Olympus 45mm 1.8. I thought about doing something different with them and decided to create a 'cinematic' effect, as I thought that would add a bit of interest.:biggrin: I'm pretty new to street photography, comments and critics welcome! Cheers.

'25 minutes from home'


'The park'


'Running out of time'

Absolutely terrific! The photos strongest point besides the tasty pp is the well balanced composition... except nr 4;)
Inspiring to watch!

These are very cool. I think you pulled off the cinematic feel extremely well. That first shot, especially, looks like a movie still. Great stuff.

Thanks for the feedback, what should I do to make it better? Perhaps get closer/compose the group in the middle? Cheers..

Thanks! I wasn't expecting such positive feedback for my first attempts at street photography.:smile:

That guy to the left ruins the photo. Clone him away and everything is just fine:)

i wonder if theres some stupidly easy way to add the photo onto a black background, is there an automatic thingy for that???

the only bad thing i can think to say, for cc, is that some of the people seem cut off at the legs in an awkward place. either less body, or more body. i know this could be difficult to frame since you have to mentally estimate how much will get chopped later on.
