Nice image, plenty of interest and right on theme, on so many levels, nice to see the movement on the passer by too. I do wonder if the 'traditional' mono processing for a street scene would suit it (and maybe a bit more low key?) But then, I suppose the mono for street photography is a bit overdone ;)

Lots going on there Nick.
Just curious with the umbrella and what appears to be a quilt in the door way, is that a homeless persons home?
A truly sad discarded image if it is.

Sorry mate, not for me. I'm guessing that the brolly is part of the poor homeless person's belongings, and street shots of homeless people don't do it for me unless it's part of a broader narrative.
I'm not all that keen on the composition either (but I suppose the reds add colour) and I would have straightened the verticals a bit too.

Still, keeps you up to date and that's what matters :)

It's certainly a compelling image, if what others have suspected is indeed what we're seeing as a poor, unfortunate homeless person in the doorway.
It does need a touch of straightening, but otherwise fits the theme well, and the passer-by has some nice motion blur going on.
Nice work Nick.(y)

The man walking out of frame really adds a bit of life to the shot and I like that he's blurry.

Wk 5 Snappers Choice
St Woolos door by Nick Dallimore, on Flickr
1st foray into film in 40yrs. Camera is a Zeiss Nettar 6x6cm circa 1955 which in my parents old house when we cleared it out. It may have belonged to my grandfather. Converted to digital by photographing with a canon 100mm macro and a tablet as the light source.

I like the door though I would have liked to have seen a bit more of it. Great conversion though. Lots of detail. I've got a couple of Zeiss nettars. Will have to give them a go.

Snappers choice - 2 good images I too prefer the 2nd.
Wild - again both great images I do find the blue tit more appealing for the colour

I like both shots for wild - great detail although the background is a bit distracting for the blue tit.
