Excellent set. Interesting everyone has a favourite. Mine's number 3. I like the motion in the walking man. Well done!

Very nice set. The tilted picture definitely works well in the second one. I'm not so sure in the third one, but I maybe that's just me. Iggy's favourite is number 3.

Love the set, Dean! I saw them on flickr, earlier but have not yet had time to comment.

Wonderful "dark shots" - I like especially the first photo because of the coming car lights!

I don't know what people see in street photography at all. I have seen portraits that were moving but for the rest I am at a loss. It must be the way my brain is wired but fortunately there are a lot more people like you people than people like me.

interesting comment raven4ns. I don't find food photography that interesting generally, but a great food shot is a great food shot and it will have more impact than an average food shot. I think people like street photography because it catches a moment in time and freezes it. If that moment is spontaneous and interesting it can be extremely powerful if the shot is also well exposed and well composed.

I am one of the people that love good photography of any genre.
This is a cool and interesting set real mccoy! I favour shot one here for the comp, tonal quality and eerie mood. Well done!

Thanks to all of you, the day I shot this I was feeling a little uncreative, it was a cool and dismal day. Then it hit me to just go with that feeling and that is what I tried to convey in these photo's. I love all forms of photography also, and that is what I find absolutely amazing about this form of art. One day you could be taking photo's of landscapes in a green field and the next of a rainy day in the city. Just keep on shooting and have fun....
