Street photography is a popular genre and a favorite of mine to admire. This week's submissions by our readers produced an exceptional list and helped the WeeklyFstop gain some needed street credit.
Street is one of the most accessible genres of photography. You don't need to live in Europe or a city, although that seems to dominate many of the popular and well-known examples I've seen. If you're wondering exactly what street photography means, Eric Kim, one of the photographers I follow, does a great job breaking it down on his blog.
I know part of the trick is being inconspicuous so you can capture the candidness of the moment. That is, of course, assuming you are including people in the shot. That alone makes it a bit tricky and not for everyone. That is why I am more of an admirer of street photography than a participant.
Luckily we had a bunch of photographers braver than me that delivered once again with this awesome list.
This Week's Top 10:

The beautiful warm glow makes me want to follow those people right down the street. It was tough to pick from the top five since they were all awesome shots. This photo drew me in though and wouldn't let go. Great shot Stephen, thanks for joining in and congratulations.
Thanks for another great showing, everyone. I hope you are continuing to enjoy the #weeklyFstop as much as I am!
What Is This Week's Theme and How Do I Enter?
Of all the different types of photography, long exposure is by far my favorite. Our eyes cannot see in long exposure per se. You have to imagine what the result will look like. You also can get different results from the exact same shutter speed photo after photo simply because of all the moving variables that might be included in your composition. The mystery and excited anticipation of the results keeps me coming back again and again.
To enter, simply use the hashtag #weeklyFstopLongExposure on any public Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr post between now and our next weeklyFstop article. Please keep it to one entry per week to keep it fair and less cluttered.
Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed them:

Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If you happened to submit but fell short, please don't be discouraged. Keep shooting and try to gain techniques or ideas from the photos that are selected. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, feel free to contribute in the comments. I'm always open to future theme suggestions.
