Speakers Corner, Hyde Park.

This guy was speaking out against the teachings of the Bible. He was Muslim. Hence the title of the photograph.

Powerful capture! I understand the title, and it absolutely adds to the tug of the image. Often times I will ignore the title, overlooking it completely. Initially looking at the image, I thought that it was nicely focused and well-exposed shot. Reading the title stopped me in my tracks. This one definitely evokes a rush of emotion no matter where you stand. I think the composition and your score would have been greatly improved if you'd not chopped off that right hand, and opened up that aperture some to really set him off from the background. Well seen and great titling.

Not sure I understand your title. Why is that the "Wrong Book"?
05/07/2006 04:25:35 PM
Is that why everyone around seems amused?

It's kindda green, matches his cap, what's wrong. Seriously, I'd like to see that other hand in full.

Nice shot of a corner preacher. The faces in the crowd show very nicely that they are not focusing their attention on him.

Why did you title it "Wrong Book?" Do you think it is unlikely that someone who looks like this would be preaching from the bible? Or was he actually preaching against the Bible--saying that it was filled with lies?

Funny in a way. Well composed although I would have liked to see all the hand on the left.
