    Waiting tables......

    This is a huge departure from the norm for me but hey..that's what it is all about right?

    I liked the movement in this picture but was unsure what to do with it. I am equally unsure about HDR but I brought the two together and I am not totally displeased by the result.

    Chanelling Edward Hopper my favourite artist.

    What do you guys think?

    I am asking if you think this is an avenue worth exploring rather than what you think of this particular picture.

    Composition isn't clean enough on the right hand side now I see it posted.

    Interesting tonemap; not HDR I think, just a look called HDR. If the objects in the foreground were cloned out it would be absolutely fantastic, but it is still very good and different. Ta

    I think you are right to be pleased with the result - I think the effect is interesting and I like it.

    Very busy and gives you the sense of being there which is what makes it an excellent shot. Well composed.

    Definitely different from your standard street photography attempts. Looks like a hybrid HDR/digitized/water color image.

    I would like the shot better if you had waited until the man in the
    striped shirt had moved and the waiter was fully in view. You've
    titled the shot "Waiting Tables", but the waiter is obscured.

    There are some strong elements available here with the juxtaposition
    of the new architecture of the cafe and traditional church steeples. The
    customers are well captured, but the theme subject is almost hidden.

    The railing in the lower left doesn't bother me because I do a lot of "street"
    and that type of thing is acceptable in this genre. In this type of photography,
    we can't be too fussy about the distractions that are part of the street scene.

    Thank you for your observations Tony. Much appreciated.

    Waiting Tables was just a working title which I will almost certainly change.
