Looking for feedback on this one. As I’ve observed before, street photography isn’t really my thing, but I occasionally dip my toe in the water. All comments gratefull received.

You have great sense of subject be it street photographing or not. :) I particularly love the color play in this one.
Thanks Lucin. I felt I needed to work on this a bit, to lift it out of the ordinary.
very interesting…..th processing works well with the scene. nicely done
Thanks Shannon. Glad you like what I’ve done.
Half and half…colour versus monocolor..Or… is blood stained the place..where somone has bled his heart..due to the extreme solitude?So it seems..when th night is there..the city is another thing,pulsing darkness in throbsof relaxed…. anxiety.Rosa (Love it, Duncan… remember me much of Bilbao’s) A hug.
Ah, Rosa – you’re a gem :)Bleeding hearts in Coffs Harbour? Very possibly! ‘Relaxed anxiety’ could be a very apt description as well.Gracias, D.
I really like the clarity of the bench and the light shining off it. It makes me think that the spirit of someone is sitting there. Excellent composition and treatment.
Thanks OB. I always think of ragman, when I look into the light now. As for the bench, it seemed quite poignant – an empty seat on a damp evening, with few people willing to stop and rest.
Thank you Nancy :)
Very well taken.
I like this, despite my previous slight bias against the Orton effect. I must rethink, because this rainy scene appeals so strongly to me. I won’t repeat the other great comments, but I do like the way you composed and edited this.
Thanks Jan. The Orton Effect in this is moderate, because of the stages I went through afterwards. Not everything suits Orton, nor does it actually show up well with all images. Like any tool, it should be used judiciously.
Fantastic shot, the wet pavement is making this picture very special! Excellent work!Brendan
Thanks Brendan. The funny thing is, I don’t remember it being that wet at the time. Memory is so fallible!
I’m not sure about the title ;-) but Duncan this is one of the best street scenes in Coffs I’ve seen – yes, I identify it as Coffs myself, but only because I know that bench too well. You have captured it perfectly, it could be in any city in the world, your colour play is brilliant, and the textures are great. Really great shot!
I am humbled :) Thanks so much Trish; I shall walk slightly taller this morning!
