  1. The composition of the photo at 53:20 is just superb. The left foot of each person forms a perfect arc while each right foot is flat on the ground. Also nice spacing between their respective heads and torsos. The greenery on the lower left keeps the eye from running off the left-hand end of the image. The heart on the brick wall couldn't be better. Nicely done!

  2. Such an inspiring and entertaining presentation Derek ! Best I saw so far I saw on this channel. Time flew by watching it.
    Although I don't live in NY but in German town with a population of only 250.000 you totally inspired me to got out shooting street. Great motives are everywhere-you just have to pay attention to them.

  3. 58:00 I totally agree. The most iconic shots from people like Bresson, Weegee, Erwitt, Leiter, etc are not completely tack sharp. It's about the "decisive moment", the story, the content. Pixel peepers can kiss my…

  4. Hey, great presentation. With the section on cropping, it wold have been interesting to see the pre-cropped shots to get an impression of what you did and get an impression of what made you decide to crop it the way you did.

  5. I'm old enough to think that sprinkling the word 'like' through your discourse was cute coming from the lips of Reese Witherspoon in 1999, but is more than a bit wearing from a middle-aged male in 2016.

    Apart from that distraction, I enjoyed the presentation, learned some new behaviours and reinforced some others. Kudos to B&H for giving us full-length tutorials, too.
