Just to set the record straight, I'm not saying that you can't photograph on the street with a lens longer than 35mm, I'm saying that when you do, you lose all context of the scene. Long lenses give great compression and blur the background beautifully. Unfortunately, that's not what true street photography is about. That's more of a portrait approach and yes, there are good street portraits.

Different strokes for different folks.

Well said. There technically are no rules. It all boils down to personal preference although wider lenses certainly do allow for better composition, DOF and that real SP "feel". Personally, I'm not a fan of SP. when I see a good SP photo though, more times tha not, it was shot somewhere in the 28-50mm range. Just my 2 cents.

Think I threw these up in other non Vancouver related threads but it'll suit here too.

The fog from the inside - and yes, the processing on the second is more of a play around to get a darker almost post apocalyptic feel - still thinking of taking the moon out entirely.

Oh right, because shooting closer removes any creepiness of shooting people that you have never met.
