Challenge: Partners (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Nikon D2H
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: NYC
Date: Jun 3, 2008
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 500
Shutter: 1/80
Date Uploaded: Jun 3, 2008

Taken at a protest rally for Sean Bell, a man killed by nyc police when they mistook him for having a weapon.

Blurred & darkened the edges to put the focus on Sharpton, the speaker. I rather like this shot for the energy that i think it has but it will likely tank.


Wow, was this shot really that bad?

Could have been a little more in focus.

Really nice shot, I like the wider angle that shows the photographers and crowd.

I normally despise anything that glorifies today's politics but this really depicts the ambush of unnecessary attention quite literally.

It's fun to see the chaos in the foreground. It adds to your message about the role the media plays in politics.

the title reflects a good concept but, unfortunately, the image is not interesting at all

Now there's a perfect case of "mutually beneficial"! Emphasis on "mutually", as in excluding Joe Public. You got me reaching for my soap box, head full of angles on that particular topic, but this is not the place for it.
The picture captures the hectical hysteria of a rally very well.

Weird distortions on the faces. The speaker's head looks like a drop-in!

Everything is to blurry in this picture. It has potential though.

I'm not sure if this is a partnership or an adversarial relationship, but its good journalism. Now -2 points because its Al Sharpton.... kidding :)
