A great street shot - action caught right in the moment, and I so want to find out what they're looking at!
I love your postprocessing here too, the high contrast really makes it snap!

@Adiemus: Looks a bit too contrasty, but I'm learning about setting up my camera properly for shifting ambient conditions on the street. Really appreciate your input. Cheers!
Nice work. I really enjoy it.Greetings Giannis

@Giannis: Giannis, thanks! Nice for you to drop by.
This is a nice street shot, Luis. The 'cowboy' definitely makes a story... And for that purpose I would may be tried to crop the half body on the right. Just at his arm. That way the 'cowboy' wouldn`t get squeezed and have some space on the right. I like the processing. But that is why your images stand out. You mastered that very well.

@Nataly: Thanks for visiting. Looking at this image the way it appears on my screen I would darken the background a bit via mask and darken the shirt as well as the hat a bit. In fact, I did, but I could not upload the new one as the site prevents re-uploading the photo once it appears for the given date.
The arm thing is a tough call as I cringe at cropping. I would rather darken the corners as much as appropriate to draw attention towards the main subjects.
Thanks for dropping by and your comment.
Wonderful b&w street picture ! Are you a journalist because it's so difficult to shoot people in the street... well done indeed.

@zOOm: ZOOM, thanks! I not a journalist but I do like photojournalism a lot and have a high interest in journalism in democratic societies --its use and function, to be exact. Funny thing about me is I don't consider myself a people person, but there I am with a high interest in people and how their minds work as well as what makes all of us similar and yet very different in some ways. I am happy you liked this one too.
OK, That could be the way out. Darkening the background would work, since right now his shirt is merged with that woman behind.
Thank you so much for your comment!!!! Question... What do you think about my yesterday`s post. Somehow it is one of my favorite images, but I got no comments... Just want to hear what you think.... Please.
