    Interesting shot, but the bottom left corner seams too bright IMO.

    i like the processing but to me it's not instantly obvious that it's two girls and not one with really freaky feet! also may have worked better if they were on the left third of the frame so you could see where they were walking as opposed to where they've been.

    That's a result of the processing.
    I realise it won't be to everyone's taste, but I'm trying to post stuff I like

    Quite like the shot but it did take me 'til I reached the feet to realise there were two girls there. :blush:

    I like it, including the post processing.

    I like the post processing a lot, it reminds me of a cross processed negative. Ideally i would have liked a bit more seperation between the girls but then thats street photography for you.

    I'm not to keen on this myself. Save for some fancy post-processing, it really isn't that good I picture imo.

    Nothing that really stands out.

    As it is, it just looks like an over-processed random shot.

    I'd love to give some CC, but the whole shot really doesn't do or say anything to me.

    Sorry, didn't want to sound overly harsh but from the quality of work you've put out over the months, I was expecting something much better!

    I'd rather you be honest than, "hey great shot".

    In contrast I like the shot, the moment, the blur, the angle of the shadow, the post processing, the second look that makes your realise she isn't talking to herself. The way their heads line up with the poles and line across the back, the way the building shadow draws another line.

    My only real criticism is that it needs to be wider.

    To be honest I hate this. I agree with J-Pepper its not great. I cant give CC because I dont like any portion of it.

    Hi there, not a photography person so forgive the simplicity of my question but, what did you do post-processing wise to the shot? The image reminds me of a style I really like in movies - I'm just curious what that style is?

    'tis a cool shot, the leg things kinda confusing though.

    Would definitely look awesome if it had been a really wide shot. I like it though :)

    You don't really get the point of CC then do you?

    I agree with others, that if you zoomed out a little, you could crop the image down to a narrower format and give them a sense of going across the frame.

    I do like the post-proc but you could have tuned the levels a bit more, nice exposure as it is though.
