Default To tusharkmandal: Shooting in the stream

Hello Tushar:
Just a quick comment or advice based on my experience (such as it is) - the temptation to "isolate" individuals or characters in the street with a longer focal length is perfectly understand, resulting in "portraits" taken in the street. But a further challenge consists in snapping the flow and structure of the street. For this, first of all one needs to be at a 28mm or 35mmm length and I find it also helps to not obsess with the center of the frame too much but become more and more conscious of the edges as you look through the viewfinders. Hence, in this case, I think the two cropped faces at the lef and right edges of the frame are key, I really think they're the main point actually, hence the title...
