"Just" hmm.

This is a first-rate example of the genre. Also a rare excellent picture taken with an ultra wide lens, in my opinion.

Regards,

Andrew
Best wishes,

Great shot, and good use of the fisheye. Even the white sky looks appropriate! Nicely done

Striking image due to the fisheye lens - imagine what it would look like on film or a full frame sensor!
There is a harmony between the attitude of the woman & the building behind her. She must have been nearly treading on your toe when you pressed then shutter button.

I was close for this shot, but I think street photography has to be close and personal

Yes, often that is the case.

Whoever laid those pavers needs a good talking to. The angles are all over the place! Anyway, nice shot. Pray tell, what was the particular lens you used, a Vivitar (Bower) 8mm, perhaps?

Excellent example of street photography. Why do these shots seem more at home in mono than colour? I don't follow Andrew's comment re first class street photos being rare with ultra wide angle lenses. Many of the best ones are shot wide angle in my opinion.
