    They seem a bit young to be smoking, but why should that be different in any other country. Were you shooting from the hip? Great shot.

    @SEAN - yeah, I was.. I took other 3 shots, one through the viewfinder and 2 from the hip, but this shot was more interesting..
    I like shooting from the hip because usually people aren't aware of being photographed, and their expression is very natural..
    A SLR is so intimidating sometimes.. I'd prefer a Leica (I'm accepting donations) :D

    This is a nice street shot. I like the gritty black and white and the slight slant to the frame.

    I like the one girls reflection in the metal and the way her head is turned, makes it looks like she is using the mirror.
    Good shot

    Very natural candid shot, I can tell your post processing is different in this photo. Great work though!
  • Filip // 2008-06-26 21:23:13

    Nice shot! And cute girls too. If you took away the cigarettes... :)
  • yee // 2008-06-26 21:23:52

    Love this street shot and the tilted angle of the composition!
    One would need some luck with Leica to get a pin-point sharp image (at the desired focal point) when shooting from the hip (assuming f/1.4 as in this pic)...

    great candid shot. very cool!
  • Jonas // 2008-06-26 21:55:26

    For "some" reason, cigarettes make girls sexy! And I think you succeeded in transmitting this mood here.

    It was the things I liked most when I was in japan: the japanese girls with their mini skirts.
    I love your Photos.
  • Jeff T // 2008-06-27 02:17:08

    I have to agree with FLIP ... Great shot, and nice job on the focus shooting from the hip.
  • Jim // 2008-06-27 02:31:29

    The tilt adds some interest to the shot. I love the way the young girls dress in Japan.

  • Claus // 2008-06-27 17:54:25

    Nice urban street photo, and something like that really needs to be in black and white, I need to try that out someday!
  • cako // 2008-06-27 20:51:13

    Great shot and nice b&w - I like this a lot. Great framing - particularly as you weren't using the viewfinder!
