Belle scéne de rue, un noir et blanc juste à point !

@Inés: Merci Beaucoup Inés. Vous êtes très gentil. J'ai récemment changé ma méthode pour convertir mes photos en noir et blanc. J'ai employé moins de contraste et un peu plus de subtilité :-)

Kheoh Yee Wei from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Oh Gosh, Yeah it's for me LOL I love it, I love looking at people, they're all so full of ideas and thoughts, and totally unaware of people surrounding them..

@Lorraine: Thanks Lorraine! - Like a little slice of life frozen in time isn't it!

Nick Passantino from Bronx, United States

nice capture.. i just think that awning in the top left corner of the frame is a bit distracting from the people in the street.

@Nick Passantino: I know what you mean Nick but I quite liked the sense of enclosure it gave to the photo.

Dhini from Dordrecht, Netherlands

@Dhini: The city is in the north of England at the point where England touches Wales on the River Dee. It was founded by the Romans about 2,000 years ago and still has its fortified Roman and Medieval city walls.

Lost Valley from Kamloops, British Columbia ( west coast), Canada

When I got to cities I am tourist in I always make a point of taking time out to sit myself down at a coffee shop and look at the people go by to read their faces and their emotions. Your photo does just this-it transports me to a place I haven't been. I love the looks on their faces and I can only imagine what they are discussing or thinking about.

@Lost Valley: Thanks very much - I'm with you on the attractions of sitting in a coffee shop in a foreign city and watching people go by!

Vanessa from Kent, United Kingdom
