Not a bad street scene, but the blown out highlights spoil it, as does the toning.

It might work better, either monochrome, or colour, but with added noise to give it that grimey street look.
Perhaps even a tighter crop or portrait format might also work.


Equipment: Canon 5d mkIII, Canon 24-105L, Canon 100-400L, Canon 70-200L f2.8 mkII, Canon 100mm macro, Canon 85mm f1.8, Canon 430EX Flash.

I pretty much thought exactly the same thing ^^^. the tone doesn't work, but b&w and something to add texture might (noise/grain). Also, some vignetting might help to focus your concentration on the three people in the middle.

I'm not a huge fan of sepia/yellowish toned images most of the time. It would be interesting to see it in black & white. I would have gone with a tighter crop: quite a bit at the bottom, a bit off the sides, and maybe just a touch over the "Hollywood" sign. You may also try a bit of burning and dodging (external link) to control the viewer's focus.

Others have commented on the technical stuff. Here's a composition comment: I'm not a fan of taking pictures of people walking away from the camera. Like it or not, they're the focal point of the image. If you were trying to capture the setting, they need to be a smaller part of it.
