I thought the guy with his rather blasé look made a nice juxtaposition with the girlfriends. There was a lot of distracting colors in the scene so I went with B&W.
C&C welcome. (With apologies to the sentiments of FF)

I'm not sure what to make of this shot. As a slice of life, I guess it works. Without the guy, it looks like it could be an intimate scene. But with his presence, it looks like she's just taking off her jacket in a fast food joint. Although the wardrobe is interesting.

Technically speaking, it's a little noisy and the composition is quite busy.

I like this concept, my take on this shot:

I kinda think it looks like she is showing of her new boob job.....lighting is good but the look on her face and the posture of the gal seated is nothing exciting for me.

I'm not sure what kind of message you are trying to portray with this image. It's a bit noisy though, what ISO where you shooting at?

I had much the same feeling about it - crop out the guy or not - slice of life sounds like a good genre I guess. Thanks for the fast-food comment; I think I'll clone out the cup. It was in an open-air bar at the beach. As a candid I had to take the clutter as it was.

Yeah he sure does. Isn't it weird that a guy with a pair that many women would envy can flaunt his bare boobs in public but a woman can't ? Such an injustice I'd say!

You cleaned it up nicely but maybe a touch too contrasty. Thanks Tmoore.

Yeah a better look would have been nice I agree. Thanks for commenting.

You must creep-out easily.

ISO 800 and it was cropped about 50% as I recall. The message was "juxtaposition" - the beauties and the beast as it were.

This is like a peeping Tom shot. And if I had to guess I would say you took it with long glass. Creepy.

A peeping Tom shot in a public open-air bar - you can't be serious.

I can't tell if you're serious. I obviously had the same reaction which is why I thought it was creepy. It appears your "spying" on some pretty girls from far away with long glass. Just because it was taken from a public place doesn't make it OK all the time. Legally it is obviously fine, but if everyone only did what was legal and not take morality or just simple common sense into consideration this country would be even sadder than it is.

You've got to leave the guy in the shot! It tells a great story: the girls just arrived at the topless bar and they're now getting "into" the appropriate attire. In this story, long glass is totally appropriate.

Thanks for sharing.

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

The term “Peeping Tom” is someone who invades another's privacy as in peering into a window of someone's house, peeking into a public restroom, looking up someone's dress, and so on – with a prurient intent. I have never taken such pictures and never will. Furthermore, this photo is clearly not of that genre. To use this term here is disparaging to the photographer for what it implies.
“Spying” means secretly tracking (and photographing if you like) someone for a nefarious reason – with a premeditated intent. And “spying on pretty girls from far away” - these were adult women in a BAR. The blasé man with the mammarys was central to the shot, and in fact he makes the shot what I titled it - “Juxtaposition”. This is simply a candid shot.

I don't quite understand the obsession with “long glass”. Would the photo be less creepy to you if it were shot at 50mm? Hardly. I've never owned any lens longer than 200mm and this shot was taken at less. So this allusion is directed at the photographer not the photograph. And since you know nothing about the photographer, nor the subjects, nor the glass, I find both your critiques offensive, presumptuous, and insulting. Before spewing phrases like creepy, common sense, and morality, people might give their own moral compasses a bit of tweaking.

Cpam, you pretty much nailed it on the head. Thanks for a sensible critique.
