  2. Bonjour Daniel!
    Merci pour votre soutenir et conseil. Je volonte rester!

    I like the way that no-one seems bothered by the fact you have a camera
    practically right up in front of them. I find a lot of people are
    intimidated by the sight of one. As soon as they see a camera, they
    tense up and watch every move the photographer is making. Especially
    when you are so close to the subject. You have a special talent in
    making people relax and be themselves. This is hard when it comes to
    street photography. C'est tres bien.

    I have been also surprised ! I set the Daniel's opacity to 0 % :)
    Right. But the manner of the photographer is also important. I never
    try to hide
    my camera when I took pictures. Sometimes it's hard and sometimes it's
    easy.
    These day it was easy ! :)
    Thanks to you

    Good capture of the moment. The contrast
    is quite high between the shadows and
    the window in the background. But you
    were able to keep the shadows from
    filling in the face of the standing girl.
    Not an easy thing to do with a blasting
    window in the background. In the
    print I would have burned in the window
    some more, if possible, to eliminate
    the bright distraction.
    The image makes me wonder about
    what the girl sitting is about to say or
    what was just said to her by the other
    woman. Waitress to customer? Some
    ones lover confronting the other woman?
    Great stuff for many stories from one
    image.

    Good work Daniel. Keep it up. Being
    invisable with a camera is the mark
    of a great street photographer.

    Another potentially nice scene ruined by bad lighting.
    The bright areas distract the eye away from the center(s) of interest.
    The lack of shadow detail caused by the overly high contrast
    exacerbates the problem.

    In the coffee the light is very poor.
    Hard to manage.
    It's the main point, the story !
    Each one can imagine one story.
    Thanks a lot Draco :)

    The face of the standing face is too dark,
    in my opinion.
    Right, why not :)
    Thanks Draco, and sorry for the late
    answer ;)
    Thanks a lot Draco :)

    Lighting conditions were very hard, right.
