    Why is it intrusive?

    She's working her body to get the perfect shot....

    She's a lean, mean, photo working machine....

    A NYC calorie burner who is focused on her quarry....

    Better?

    The X100F is a great street shooter, nice capture...

    all street shots are intrusive to varying degrees....
    and no one, except maybe the shooter, has any clue what or who she is shooting. could be a bird or a sign, or it could be her spying on someone across the street. or she could be shooting someone shooting; just like this shooter is doing :)
    .....who knows and who cares ???

    +1 ^ what @JRick said.
    Any candid photography can be regarded as 'intrusive'
    But when you're out in the street, you're fair game

    neither the degree of intrusiveness nor whether the subjects are fair game are very important, in my mind, as compared to why people like this shot
    is there a "story" being captured, a "decisive moment", or simply a shot with a busy background that could be easily done with an Iphone on burst mode ?

    disclaimer : i'm NOT critiquing this shot, nor am i disagreeing the X100F is a great street camera; i'm just explaining why i wrote "who knows and who cares ???"
    - i see no evidence of photographic skills being displayed in this shot
    - what makes this a "nice capture" ? i'm seriously interested because i DO value the opinions of other members !!

    and i DO see many street shots that impress me, but they usually involves some degree of photography skill. either thru careful composition, imaginative use of focal length or perspective, creative manipulation of light, or a scene where there IS a story that is clear to any viewer who wasn't there, and that usually involves some level of interaction taking place. i don't see any of these elements in this shot.

    - what are the elements of this shot that made you like it ?

    i certainly hope that the fact that the shooter was skinny and that made it worth shooting would NOT be a reason :)

    Such a narcissistic reply!

    I thought I would review your work to understand your arrogant and condescending remarks. Your posts on this forum frequently criticize other's work, or ask them to defend it. Your "disclaimer" above, has no value since you immediately criticized this shot and want the photographer to defend it, or explain it to you. You seem to comment on other's photography with a wealth of expertise, offering unsolicited advice to improve their work. Curiously, you don't appear to post much of your own photographic work. The few photos I was able to find lacked creativity, were poorly shot and poorly edited.

    If you cannot resist giving unsolicited advice or critique, please keep it limited to the Photo Critique Forum. :)

    I could not hold that position for very long without my knees giving out causing extreme camera shake and possibly falling to the payment and being run over by a New York cabbie....

    Kudos to her for holding that position...
