    Great image - really expressive. Not sure why he'd have a poster pointing out that ayatollahs age but hey.

    Well done - what focal length did you use ? did you have to get in close ?

    Great composition and facial expression. Maybe just a litle dodging on the eyes would help bring them out.

    Great DOF, is it faked?

    Nice tones detail and facial shadow.

    Do you have any tips for someone wanting to get into street photography (someone like me???). sorry to be cheeky!

    Good and intense photo. He has really got his mouth full with this demonstration ;) I would like to know what the sign says...

    Hey Miles, thanks for the shout out out out today. Cheers!

    Where was this shot??

    Thanks all, this was taken with the canon 200mm prime so I was about ten or twelve feet away. The blur isn't faked, at 200mm (320mm on the 20d) you can really pick a subject out.

    James, I'm not sure I have any tips really, i don't know what I'm doing other than going out on the street and taking photographs. Someone like Matt from www.thenarrative.net is far more of a street photographer than I am :)

    Carrie, no worries. This was shot at Queen and Bay a couple of weeks ago, they were protesting against the influence of extremist mullahs in Iran.

    I think the portion of the sign that's visible says "Mullah's agents..."
