Sorry Sinem. I've been visiting but been too busy to sit and think of what to say to at least make a valuable comment.

Now I'll do that for this one and I guess it goes for all shots. When you take a street shot as Ovo said, Think poetic. Now you've got a good scene here but you've been too caught up in it that you've not applied the rules of photography. Firstly look for symmetry. I would have moved a bit further till I was directly ahead of this mand, i.e. 90 degrees to the wall. Then compose, rule of thirds all that cr*p. Remember you have to put him in context of his environment, I see you've got two mini poles used them align them make sure that they do not distract otherwise zoom in or crop.

You'll see that your story will become stronger and you'll transform the picture into a work of art where everything from the angle of the painters' arm to the horizontal alignment of the wall brick work has been thought of when the picture was taken. That would make it an even better street photo.

Sorry I seem to have overwhelmed you, but I think this is what you want to hear from me.

Yours truly,

The Alakija Man
Suby & Sinem: Hey, Jide; have you actually looked at Monday's shot and what I have written underneath - these are snippets of the streets as I see through the windshields - as a result of shooting from a moving car for the split of a second the scenes that I thought portrayed moments stolen from Londoners' lives, sorry I wasn't exactly in a position to compose my shots according to the rules of photographys. And I tend to sort of agree with my other half - rules are at times meant to be broken to serve one's purposes. Obviously, you've broken the rules of photoblogging by not reading my intro to the series sad Me upset.
Nice one!

Hmm I would have liked to see this without the road in front - a bit distracting? Otherwise a very interesting subject and a cool b/w shot.
Another fine street shot!

Really like the contrasting tones of this shot. Through the windshield eh? I love taking shots like that! This was very well done...

If he falls I'll catch him. Cute working moment!
Hey Sin,

You asked for my comment and I gave it. Regarding your limitations, I agree it's very difficult composing shots when taken in the car even worse when you are driving, I've nearly had bad accidents shooting while driving in Nigeria, so I totally understand but that being said I also think that a photographer should do their best to present the shots in the best way they can whilst in a moving car.

Regarding your comment about the fact that this was a snippet I don't really think it holds because at the end of the day it's still a shot taken in a car and you can achieve perfect shots while driving. You've done it many times so no excuses there Sinem, I've seen a lot better work from you and you know it.

I'm sure you'll understand.

Liking this shot.
The "To Open" white sign against the black door makes it for me.
Nice street scene of everyday life.
