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.

I've always been enchanted with the "look", and wished the cinematic ratio was a format option on the camera. There wouldn't be additional cost in production for the manufacture to provide the format in its software.

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:)

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.
