Just looks like a snipersnapshot to me. I think if you directly engaged the young woman, you would have a far more interesting photograph.

Her arms seem awkward, her mouth is hanging open, and the background object is coming out of her head. Three distractions, and not much of interest. Does not do it for me, sorry.

Hi, thank you for your attention. You've probably had in mind in your photos as "Angry Man" or "120 502" series sport?

When I critique a photo, my focus is on what YOU have in mind. What I try to address is the difference between one's seeming objectives for the image and the actual execution.

In the case of your photo, it appears that you wanted a candid capture of a young woman expressing herself during a conversation. SpecialK covered the image's shortcomings quite well. My point was-and still is-that the shot would have been more compelling if you approached her more directly and more closely instead of hiding behind a telephoto lens.

I find that effective street shots of people are more effective when the photographer exerts some presence or even courage.
