Understanding Street Photography....

It would be nice if the category for "street scenes" was observed in the proper spirit. Street photography is a genre unto itself, and does not include images akin to post card scenes.

Some of the images are beautiful, well composed and processed nicely... But they have nothing to do with the Street Photography genre...

Jasenka,

Has any more thought been given toward the development of an actual "Street Photography" category?

It is a genre well recognized in museums around the world... would it be so difficult to observe it here as such?

Please note the interest shown in the recent street challenge posted by lou.plummer..

Thanks in advance for your understanding..

-Alan

Hello Alan, I'm sorry, the management thought about it and came to conclusion that the definition listed here clearly indicates why we can't have it as a category - it would be impossible to moderate.

Speaking of Street Photography, has anyone seen "Finding Vivian Maier"? Its a fantastic documentary on Showtime. Google her story if you don't know it. Her Street shots are incredible.
