    Hi Paul, welcome to the forum then. Judging from browsing your site, we can expect quite a bit of interesting photos! Your concept photos were especially appealing to me, lots of inspiring stuff. Hope you don't mind, but this one: https://paulwatson.smugmug.com/Concept-Photography/i-VTWJqw5/A is outstandingly superb!

    Cheers,
    Can

    Welcome to Dgrin, Paul

    I enjoyed looking at your gallery. It looks like we have similar tastes--I'm also mainly a street shooter. As a tip, I think you'll get better response here if you post your pics inline, like you did on the third post. People are surprisingly lazy about clicking on links.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work. :+1:

    Cheers,
    -R

    Wonderful collection of street photos. I agree with Can - the girl with the book is outstanding.

    . I am not sure how you guys keep out of harms way

    Hey Paul,
    Thanks for the strategy tips. I'm less adventurous than you, I suppose, as I don't seek out areas that make me uncomfortable. I have tried it some, but I find that my ability to see a good image is impaired when I have to worry about the possibly bad intentions of other people around me. It's just harder for me to get into the right mental zone. Most of the work I have done in Madrid has been in older parts of town that are frequented by tourists, which means that I'm just another guy taking pictures. That makes it easy to blend in without having to conceal my camera. Of course, I have been yelled at on occasion, but never chased or attacked. So far. Mostly, I worry about pickpockets, who also frequent the same areas, but I have devised strategies for protecting my wallet even if I am distracted by what I'm doing.

    Indeed - could be straight out of a 30s silent movie, I can already hear the piano playing :smiley:

    This is a great one, @mongoose330

    this is one puce many look over the fine details.. look between the legs

    I meant to comment on this one, but I guess I forgot. While the idea is good, I think the guy in the background is too small for this to work. In general, if you have to point something out to people it's a sign that something has gone wrong.
