This group is one special place in the street photography world. It is great to be able to see so many good pictures every week and to discuss about it!

Congrats to the Observe for putting it up like you do, and to all the boys and girls who spend their time so marvelously on the streets!

Congratulations to the winners. Well deserved, all of them. All in all, a great set of street shots. And great work from the admins, it must have been quiet a job putting all these threads together. I've enjoyed this process a lot, so many reminders of so many impressive and enjoyable street photos. Great group. Long may you run!

STREET FIGHT! is one of the first pool got my attention.
Admittedly, I've started uploading my shots into Flickr less than a year and not much given opinion to this pool (except when voting). 5-6 matches each week get me exciting and waiting to see the upcoming comment and result. Surely the vote count is just one part. But the things I've learned here are priceless.

Really have a great time :)

Thank you again Chris Farling and Observe team for your hard work. As Gagriel's comment, THIS IS ONE SPECIAL PLACE

Congrats everyone :)

Thanks Chris,Observe:street fight team and the voters . This is one of my favourite group in flickr.

I'm impressed in the way SF team choose the photos to fight in each match. It's not easy to match the different photos from different photographers but you did it awesome.

I have known a lot of great street photographer friends and learned a lot from this pool. Thank you so much and congratulation for the Observe anniversary :)

Congratulations to everyone who got a picture included here, but also to anyone who has participated in any match. My apologies (for members and admins) for never being very present, since I have been away traveling. I do take a look at the pool, an amazing source of great photography. Last but not least, congrats to the wonderful admins who made this happen, especially Mr. Farling!
