If you "send" a file out from Lightroom to Photoshop using the "Edit In" command, Lightroom can automatically re import the edited file back into Lightroom automatically on save. Let me know if you are not set up for that and I'll see if I can walk you through it.

Thanks, Duck. Yes, it happens that way, so I am set up for it. Let me try again what I was doing when I lost the file and I will explain it, if I can. Merry Christmas, in the meantime. Matt

Matt, there is no intrusion here. If that person walked up to you tomorrow and said hello, you'd probably not know who it was. Their identity was protected. As you mentioned, reworking this could bring out the true emotion of the moment.

This brings up a question that's haunted the courts for ages.
- Is Street Photography Legal?

I hope this puts your mind to ease! S-

Thoughts? Thanks. Matt
There's so much I like about this image, from the leading lines of the curb that draw me to the subject, to the intimacy of the moment, and the powerful processing, but what I really like about the image is the story it tells.

I see a young man having a hard day, trying to calm himself with a cigarette and a moment alone. Look again though at the signpost directly above and all I see is STOP. Stop being alone, Stop worrying, Stop smoking. Stop.

I'm not sure this could have been taken any other way! S-

The truth is that when in public view we have no expectation of privacy. You are free to photograph anything you wish within the public view. The final use of the photograph may be limited by laws of personal privacy or copyright issues but that only applies to images used in a commercial fashion such as advertising or in a way in which the person could be seen to be endorsing something or some action that they are not actually endorsing.

The paparazzi get by with what they do because all images are presented in n editorial medium. You could legally print, and frame this image, display it in an art show and sell the art print with no room for repercussion from the subject (even if they were readily identifiable) You could not however upload it to a stock photo site as royalty free stock where it might be used to illustrate an advertisement for hoodies.

The woman laying on the ground requiring medical assistance could be legally photographed and the photo used under non commercial purposes as well. What stops us is our personal sense of ethics. If you were a staff photographer for the local news paper though it is likely that the personal ethics line would be drawn differently
