Even though the next one is well composed, but still its candid “Meaning it was not stagged”. But I like the “Two blind men” one better because as you said it conveys a better strong message Reply JAIKUMAR says: March 23, 2014 at 1:25 pm old man reading has been well composed and it reflects the mood of the street very nicely in comparison to the two beggars as they have too many followers leaving the street scene inadequate. Reply salim says: March 24, 2014 at 5:41 am Jai, Better composed doesnt necessarily mean better street photo. Many of the street photos are rarely composed, so long its candid, and gives a certain message, its good enough Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <s> <strike> <strong> Name (required) E-mail (required) URI Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
