Took this shot of teenagers that had been waiting in a Que from early morning,trying to get some tickets for a gig. liked the shot because i have one girl looking straight at the camera and the rest taking no notice of me. Was thinking of cropping it a little as it looks a little faded at the ends of the pic. Was taken in colour but i prefered it in black & white.

B&W is good. I find the two girls a bit too small in the picture, with a lot of space at the top. Needs quite a crop as the image is largley in the bottom right quarter.

Could you have zoomed in more?

Good street photography, just needs to be more frame filling for impact.

Black and white is a good choice but the composition seems a bit strange. I don't see why you cut off all the legs but included that big, mostly empty space at the top of the frame. I also agree with Paul's comment that the girl who's looking at you isn't very prominent in the frame.

I agree that b and w is a good choice here as all the colours of the different clothing might have been overwhelming.

I am not sure about the composition though. It is one of those photos where I am unsure what you are asking me to look at in that there is no obvious single point of focus. One the one hand the gaze of the two girls is directed towards the group on the right where there looks like something interesting happening. On the other hand the shopping bag of the girl on the left catches my eye as it is so light.

It's always difficult with street photography to get that "decisive moment". To turn what is often quite a chaotic scene into something which the viewer can "get" without too much thought. It takes a lot of practice to get your eye in.

Best wishes

Catherine

Thanks for the comments guys, I left the space at the top of the pic because i thought the 3 arch door ways made it more intresting shot than peoples feet,but agree i could have zoomed in closer and cropped both sides where the door ways start.
