I like this photo a lot.

It is genuine street photography that isn't focused on professional details but portraying a story. This girl with her nonchalant attitude and the teeth/sell aspects gives me a lot of interesting areas to explore and be curious about.

One of those one in a million shots that couldn't be fabricated in a studio as hard as someone tried. Well done!

On my monitor the pants look a little crushed. Not sure if there was enough in the original to bring those back up some. When I have difficulty with that particular issue I have found that manipulating the color image (often making it looks horrendous for a bit) helps with the conversion to b/w. That and in a couple of places it nears being blown - ie the cup. Otherwise a good photo. Doesn't need the fix, but wouldn't hurt from it either.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

The pant's aren't crushed on mine, and it is calibrated. They're dark but I still have detail.

Very thoughtful feedback BB. Thanks.

I checked the histogram and it looks like technically you are correct. Some very small spots on her pants (just under her shirt in front) are crushed; and a few highlights are blown (bottom of the cup and one fingernail). Thanks for the feedback.
