    I like the dark tunnel effect in the first image but it has a lot of noise. What iso and aperture did you use? You might try a tripod to allow you to lower the iso and result in less noise. In the second image I would use a tighter crop and eliminate the cars.

    I don't think that the grain is a problem. I really like the lighting and mood these pics offer, but think these could be significantly better with a human element in the mid/foreground IMO.

    I personally don't think noise is ever an issue in street photography, but that's just me

    the noise was added in pp ("film grain" by color efex) cause i like that kind of mood from my street shots.
    now that you made me notice maybe the first one is a little tilted on the right.
    thanks to everybody for your comments!

    Well noise and grain aren't the same thing but if you added it then it was the effect you were after. When I click on the images for a larger picture it works better.

    hi all :)
    already re-edited 2 images without "film grain" effect. i can't tell if i more like this version or the previous posted. maybe it's just own personal taste :thumbup:

    I think the first two look great with noise, the benches it doesn't look right with that much applied, so prefer the last one.

    Try the first one with the black "lifted" a bit. It will give that film low contrast look without the grain.
