You know, I almost commented "This must be jagar's" but then I remembered you were scoring so poorly and this had to be scoring well. I wondered who was doing a great imitation of you! Congrats on the blue in a challenge you naturally owned. :-)

I figured you'd be in the blue. :)

What I like about the shot is that I would have a tendency to have cropped it just to the "gossipers". But leaving in the rest of the scene adds so much. Huge congrats!!

Another classic... Great lighting/processing really engages the viewer in all the right places.

My only ten.
Took me a while to figure out which one was yours and which was AllenP's. Just glad they both ribboned as they were both exemplary work.

One of my top picks - wonderful interaction and suggestion of stories in the lives of these people. And I'll bet you got very close if you knew the subject of their conversation - French people may be animated, but generally they are not loud when they are in public places. That's one thing Americans visiting France comment on - if they ever quiet down long enough to notice :)
ETA Congratulations on the Blue, John!

ARE they arguing? Doesn't look like it to me...


Not arguing, talking about their husbands, when that happens, you can get within ten inches and still not be noticed :)

All so well done, POV, light, subjects, PP. Thanks.

The best is that all 3 pairs are communicating with each other.

lovely progression. really mature women have so much to say.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2012 01:17:37 AM
I was one of your 10s, and I didn't actually think this one was yours. I had you pegged for one of the other ones with cobble-stoned streets.

You are an amazing talent, man. Don't ever put your camera down.

When you can hear the street, you know you've done something right...

great light. the 21_N.gif jagaresque processing makes sense out of a chaotic image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2012 10:48:41 PM
well timed.... wonderful shadows.

A wonderful story, with powerful acting. You catch everyone at the exact second where everything has that special meaning.

But are they speaking your language, great scene, I can hear the yabbering ;)

A great example of the drama filled art form street shot, very well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2012 03:56:13 PM
Very nice. Each grouping tells a stor as the recide into infinity. Not sure who declared letterbox borders a fashio statement, but I find is detracts from an excellent photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2012 12:15:47 PM
Top notch! There are lots of stories we could write about this scene...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2012 06:06:54 AM
Nice composition with the three groups. Unless I'm wrong, the dodging of the folks in the shadows makes them look a bit too bright compared to how I'd think they'd be rendered. It work well though, and the line of the shadow itself pulls the viewer through things well. Nice timing with the gesturing and the open mouth. Feels 21_N.gif jagary.

Great. Wonderful shot of street life.

I could sit here all night and make up the conversation! :) Great capture - this is what it's all about, IMO. One of my top picks and I am 86% through voting.

Lovely European feel, nice catch of the gestures, both the ladies chatting and the woman holding the child's hand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2012 04:11:25 AM
Oh I love this
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/28/2012 07:02:39 PM
A wonderful story has been captured here that is nicely balanced by the people walking away. The processing is very well done and I really like the way you have made the ladies pop. I feel it is almost over done with the far left lady’s foot becoming almost unrealistically bright compared to the path. I say almost, as it doesn’t distract from the power of the image for me. Well done!

Two of a kind,great stuff,looks like a John but as everyone is trying to emulate him .......
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2012 10:06:00 AM
Interested in how you got to get the people to stand out in the correct exposure bracket between shadow and highlight (noticeably the child and mother walking half in half out, and the lady's bag and leg). I assume selective dodging (/burning) - but how do you make it look so natural / the transition not really count?

Oh and this has to be jagar's work if i'm not mistaken ;)

one of the few that tells a story. excellent job.

08/27/2012 03:56:14 AM
Must be John's - the mix of clarity and glow in a cobbled street setting seems indicative to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2012 02:22:41 AM
This is a great shot. Love the lighting on the ladies.
