Congrats on the awards. Lovely mono. Crystal sharp and an interesting subject - the expression and pose are priceless. For me - I think there is a tad too much space at the top of the image - but this is just a personal preference. It has also taken me a bit of time to work out the scooter in his hands as the footplate seems to be merging with his hands.

Very well executed Mr Baybut! and perfectly timed too! The B&W was the way to go for this image.Wink Just one very slight niggle is the step in the foreground is suggesting the horizontal is a tad out but what a capture it is.

Nick, good question! and also a topic that can sometimes infuriate me. In the middle of the day in brilliant sunshine, in the middle of a busy shopping area, there should be no qualms with taking a shot like this of teenagers.... and to make things easier on yourself, ask the people if you can take there picture as was the case here. However I do not always ask, as street photography can often be candid grab shots. The media may be to blame for the way people judge photographers wrongly and also intelligence, commonsense is all that's required from the photographer and the public to see the difference between a professional at work to a weirdo. I did not get any odd looks, just curious passers by and to be honest I was only focused on the kids. If somebody judges me wrong then it is there problem and they should get their mind fixed on reality again. Isn't there loads of photographers about taking shots of kids for competitions and such all perfectly harmless in content and approach or is there loads of paedophiles about taking dodgy images? I think it is easy to see what is right and wrong. It is sad that you feel like a weirdo, that is the way society/crime/media has made it so.... people need to get a grip on reality, be safe, be cautious, be sensible, talk to people more and don't live in fear, that's people as in all of us.

Also I was with a female companion when I take these shots and have I.D. on me about my photography. Parents need to be careful yes for sure and we need to be open and talk more. A very delicate topic.

In view of society's attitude I rarely take pictures of people...children or adults.

I was recently slated on EPZ when I posted what I thought was a perfectly innocent picture of 2 attractive fully clothed ladies enjoying the sunshine.
....That experience will stop me from photographing or posting pictures of persons for some time to come.

Very sad to hear that Mike on all accounts.
I will never let other peoples opinions affect me or my photography, I have been an artist since the day I was born and will continue to be so.
Like political correctness ,Society's attitude can go extremely insane at times and photographers are often misjudged unfairly. I just try and practice commonsense and talk when needed.

Can't believe the above comments! Surely, if we listened to this dribble we'd be creating an immense void. Photography witnesses time, period. Excellent frozen motion reinforced by the other character who sets the scene. Technically excellent B&W. Bravo.

I 100% agree with you parob and thank you ~ this is about photography/creating images and nothing else.
