My favorite in the thread so far. Absolutely stunning. Framing is great, processing is awesome. How did you have time to get low and frame so quickly? What did you shoot with/at?
The pic was taken with the XF56 ... actually a bit (too) long for street.
I like the perspective near ground. I've seen the dog arriving 50m before, went down, waiting to take a "head shot" ... but he decided to tag his street ... i felt free to document his action.

Unfortunately we don't have a Dislike button. This picture is just disrespectful and serves as a good example of how to discredit streetphotography. Just my 2ct.
Thank you for your comments. I fully appreciate your point of view and when you wrote "Dislike" you did press a virtual dislike button. The intention is not be disrespectful. The culture we live in, dreaming to be slender is a very positive thing and even to tell somebody that You will look great if you trim down a bit is considered very normal. So respecting your point of view, I will not change anything , the title or the picture as your norms don't work the same way in every country. Thanks for being honest with your opinion.

II wouldn't say that. I'd say the title is very unfortunate, not because I am shocked but because I firmly believe a phtograph's interpretation should be up to the viewer, it's not the role of the photographer to tell people how they should interpret it. Something like Street Name - Year would be much better imo. I don't like titles that are oriented because they seem to imply the viewer is not intelligent enough to make a link on his own about what's happening, so he needs the help of the pohotgrapher to explain him what it's about.
Interesting point. I, sometimes, keep thinking about a title to put on my shots, because I feel weird about leaving the camera file name. Never thought of just putting the location and letting the view figure out whatever they want.

I don't understand street photography most of the times. They're mostly just snapshots for me without any meaning, sold as art. Therefore I like most of sadaqat's and Conflan's pictures, since they have something funny, provocative or interesting in them.
