On the Streets of Lisbon. I was waiting for tram 28 and it was my opposite view.

Nice shot although I would have been interested in seeing a black & white version. The composition is good and original with all the contrasts (wallstreet paintings v. clean walls, old v. young, news v. ads) but the pic lacks ONE single theme : then the eye could be caught more easily and the photo would have more strength.

Hi Jan, I like photos that make intelligent use of street furniture and this is an excellent example. Unlike 'davido', I find the advert of Gwyneth Paltrow (or her look alike) grabs immediate attention. From there I find myself exploring the frame until I find the old man, gazing at the newspapers (in a nice contrast to the literally 'larger than life' model on the poster). Although the B&W workshop could be improved with some work, I agree with you that it is a scene that works better in colour. Stephen

Jan: great contrasts here. And your title subject is just a footnote to this busy, interesting picture. creatively seen. regards, c
