Waiting attitudes by StamatisGR Waiting attitudes by StamatisGR
A teenager and a lady, completely strangers to one another,
waiting for a delayed bus to come...

it's absolutely fantastic, i love the combination of attitudes and expressions, and i do like the way they are so close, two lives almost touching each other for a while. you are visible but not a disturbing element and the technique you are using is the same i use in such cases to keep the scene natural. of couse it is difficult to have the prcise control of the composition but it's not architecture photography and after all you've got it very well.
The tones are good and the scene is crisp. The only thing i'd try to do is to make it square, cropping mostly on the right side.
What do you think?

Both they and the mannequins seem to have the same bored, annoyed expressions. :D

Look at the left doll's left hand. My face is right there.
On its left knee is my hand which holds the camera in waist level ;)

Very nice capture!
Have you questioned them before taking the photo? Because it seems impossible for me to street photograph so close to the subject (18mm)...or you just take the photo and walk away...

Winter brings the models to the streets, people stiffen up, not wanting to let the cold in. Perhaps they forget movement warms the body?
