Street Photography in downtown Chicago, USA

A photoshooting in the middle of a busy street in downtown Chicago. This was my only shot since their photoshooting session broke up immediately afterwards.

At first I was upset about the car in the background, I saw it as a big distraction. Then I cropped the photo and was more pleased with the result. Focussing on just these three elements accentuated by the yellow lines makes the composition more dynamic compared to #2.

The car also is necessary to show just how dangerous this situation was for the people and for the photography gear, which is just laying on the street. You see the gear in #2 which has the wider frame.

Very nice! And I think that the car not only makes the scene more dynamic, but also make people in the frame stand out more that they would without it wink
