The only problem is that your subject is always looking down.

In street photography, isn't a ~200mm equivalent lens and its perspective more like a spy lens than the perspective from a classical 35/50mm (or equivalent) "street lens"?

It's unusual from me, as most of my "street" work is either my “Mistress" (SMC Pentax-A 15mm F3.5) or "Good Lady” (SMC Pentax-A 20mm F2.8).

I have to say that this is a very interesting photograph. Speaking for myself it does not look to be in color or black and white. Is this possibly the Sepia version that I keep hearing about? Great shot, I like this one a great deal.

Thanks very much,

Tony

Like your treatment. Walking and texting, crick in neck or bump on head running into a pole.

No I'm afraid not... it's a process called Split Toning, in this case Blue and Gold.

Thank you, I thought the split toning helped to bring out the sunshine.
