No comment for improvement...well captured with a steady hand and wonderfully presented.

Wonderful! True "Street." As Frank said, I see nothing that could be "improved." (My gosh they even have an ice bucket!) :thumbup:

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

The motion blur emphasizes the feeling of this being a "blink and it's lost" moment. There are interesting details to discover, too: the tipped wine glass on the ground, the tiny dog, the plaid bag. I find myself wanting to know more about these young men's lives.

(edit - gheesh, three more comments were left while I was struggling with getting my thoughts into print, lol. How time flies!)

Yes, I intuited some aspects from the image :) I was thinking more in broad strokes, I guess, such as social integration/acceptance, employment, or if this is just a happy Saturday night "on the town"

Humans is humans. I like to say that no one is special but everyone is unique. Why in the world should I dislike or even hate you because... I'm no better than you and you are no better than me. I'm 75 and as flaming liberal as they come, but at my age I suppose some folks tend to assume I must be conservative simply because I'm old. But I was raised conservative so there y'go. :|

I think the latter applies :)

Hey! Don't bring politics into this! :rofl:

That's because conservatism and liberalism have somewhat different meanings over here and I might get confused :stop: :D
