Starbucks by Talkingdrum Starbucks by Talkingdrum
This was originally submitted in the "Street" category where it belongs but unfortunately some idiot with nothing better to do reported it for being in the wrong category and had it moved :sarcasticclap: Really........get a life!


Went into town today (London) to try out my new 17-35 f2.8 even though it was very cold and pouring with rain. Didn't get much but saw this shot in the window of Starbucks as I walked past. I feel it's a little cheeky catching people unawares like this, everyone should have the right to relax over a skinny latte without worrying about guys sneaking around in the shadows with a 400mm but I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist :)

Just got in and seen I have a DD!! Many thanks to
Jack070 and bQw. Got to go away for a couple of days but will answer all messages when I get back :boogie:

You got a DD since it looks like a oil painting instead of a photo! All I thought was: "that cup is really realistic..." until I saw the category! Beautiful.

I love this photo. It's like you captured exactly the image of what Starbucks originally started out as: a sanctuary, and a place to be creative, or dream. It's beautiful.

It's a brilliant shot, but didn't you feel a bit pervery skulking around with a 400mm lol?

Not at all. Anyway, anybody sitting in a window looking like that is just asking for it IMHO :D

Actually, I was in Starbucks today and one of the employees informed me that they did, in fact, have mugs.

Don't show this photo off anymore, if some 'street purist' would notice it was taken with 400mm.... They would lynch you!

Hehe, sorry for brining the flame war here, but that's what bothers me - would they all say it's not street not given the EXIF/info about focal?

Just hide anything longer than 50mm and you'll be okay...

That's sick, as long as it looks good it's all okay imo :P
