    I really like your first one, it's a great example of how careful composition can produce the goods with this focal length.

    I never understood why some people think wide is how one *should* shoot street scenes.

    You can take the shot and worry about composition in processing. :)

    Thanks a lot. I took this on a recent trip to Germany where I had three lenses, but forced myself to shoot with the 50 on our last day. It was a great exercise (and a good reminder, from my early film days ,when all I had was the 50 on my camera) that the 50mm FOV is very versatile and it can look wide or tele depending on composition, framing and informed use of depth-of-field.

    Thanks a bunch, RT. Oddly enough, I generally favor a 35mm lens FOV for street shooting, and even went ahead and got an X100 to have a more "specialized" street camera. But shooting with a 50 FOV really brings back a lot of discipline.
