Come back to look on this and fave it, and noticed that the guy's face in the background is perfectly framed by the bird....cool.

John, congratulations on your Free Study ribbon. The number of quality images you posted in May is quite remarkable.

Well done John, another trophy for your good work. It would be a delight to see what you glean from a street carnival (if you haven't already, I'll have to check). *.*

"it's not easy getting a decent score with a candid in a free study"

Looks at ribbon and rolls eyes.

Nice work as always...

The bird is great in this one, Jagar. I can see why you hoped for no one in the background, but the man and bird are so good and interesting that he doesn't really distract and actually adds to the candid sense that I love. Congratulations.

06/08/2012 11:37:21 AM
Another visual treat. I am thinking you may have some talent for this photography stuff. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 11:27:27 AM
Been reading the reviews of the Fuji X-Pro 1. Mostly they talk about slow AF and difficult MF most of the time leading to missed opportunities. You do not seem to have any issues with catching the right moment with this camera! Congratulations on the Yellow in this FS.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 11:04:39 AM
Congrats John,I think I remember saying those words before.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 09:26:44 AM
Excellent candid - Congrats on another ribbon! :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 03:52:35 AM
This is probably one of the most peculiar but interesting street captures I've seen. Visually, it's just really neat to see. As always, you've nailed the decisive moment, and killed it in the conversion. Your photos are easy to spot, not just by your subject matter, but by the feel and your excellence in being where you ought to be.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 03:43:08 AM
That bird is crazy !! Wonderful shot. Man, i'm speechless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2012 03:12:17 AM
You just have that "eye" to capture the unique moments in time that most will overlook.
Congrats on the well deserved FS ribbon.

06/08/2012 02:42:48 AM

Congratulations, John. You have a great eye, and such a talent for right place, right time.

I like how the wings of the bird are splayed out.

A fine image! Congrats on the yellow!

And they're not even French pigeons... but still - a ribbon with pigeons! That's awesome!

A 21_N.gif Jagar entry if I've ever seen one. I'll be surprised if this doesn't place fairly high.

Beautiful photo in B&W. Only wished the man in the background wasn't there, it's somewhat distracting.

Superb composition and a great story. Amazing how the bird's wings capriciously framed the passing by individual at the back...

Wonderful street shot. The guy standing in the background adds some interest but also breaks the harmony for me. Everything else is perfect!
