Challenge: Signature Style (Advanced Editing VII*)

Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS

Sigh. No light this week and even less time. I *so* wanted to do pigeons! And shoot into the sun with sunspots and flare and stuff! But wrong time of year for that here. So you get a simple street shot.
And darn it all, this one actually works better in color than in B&W. So I'm not sure if this will get tagged as mine or not - I didn't hit any of my usual style points here. But I did want at least one more entry from Germany.

Side note - I quite like how the gentleman on the right nearly isn't all quite there compared to the others.

How can you come 70th in signature style ?

No one is more 'Melethial' in their work than you are . . I can only be kind and think that somehow a lot of voters did not recognise your style or greatness :- )

Cool shot

I love how the people are almost 'floating' here. I gave this a 7.

That snow adds such a neat effect to this. At first I thought it was an overlay. Natural texturing.

I like the interaction of the mother/daughter, which I think you also do a bit of family stuff too :) So maybe this isn't quite you're "signature" style, it's still you, imo. Lovely as always. And with some feeling, which is always a nice touch!

I have to say that I do not know your style lol. I really did not think this was yours. I was looking for some architecture and play with light and shadow. Those are your specialties. It's an interesting farewell photo - with snow and all. I like how the snow adds an interesting layer of texture. And I'm intrigued by the stroller - never seen one like it before. Look forward to seeing your California pics!

I was thinking this might be pawdrix -- I knew it was a kidred spirit, anyway. Really good. An eight from me.

It was the man on the right that did it for me. They were so wonderfully clear and he was just a passing shadow. I wasn't sure if you were panning, or if he was just moving faster, or if it was the depth of field -- I had no idea!

I actually wondered about this one being yours, but it wasn't black and white! Anyway, enough rambling! This was definitely one of my favs of the challenge, and it desperately needs a bluebird!

I loved this Deb...there was so much captured here...underrated IMO!

Beautiful image Deb! I looked for pigeons, and then I found this, and thought it was yours, but didn't get back to comment.

I love this!! And I'm not sure why I didn't think of you because it is becoming to your style.

LOVED this! You always have your cult following, Deb. We love ya!!

Dang Deb, didn't quite hang onto the 6. What a shame, it's a lovely image, hoped it would do better than this.

Lovely, and you. The elements all find a natural place effortlessly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2010 12:23:10 AM
Well, I missed it. I thought this could be yours, but another one seemed more so. I was looking for a b/w. Now I need to go see who it was and hope I haven't insulted either of you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2010 12:06:05 AM
That's funny. I gave this a 9, no idea it was yours. And you finish right next door to me :-)

Intriguing and so timely captured! I like how both mom and daughter have their heads down, and the snow risks... I can't guess this signature, but it's a great work! Congrats!

I think this is wonderful! Loved it the first time around last night, and like it just as much today. Beautifully done!

ok, this is being moved from an 8 to a 9 and fav'd.

Well seen, and perfectly exposed. This could represent the style of 3 or 4 of the best street photographers on the site.

This is not a scene I can relate with, thankfully! :)

Deb, I so hope you are getting some good comments. Driving by again....... You know, this is one of those images that the more you look at it the more you see. It makes me realise I definitely don't spend enough time looking.

Nice combo of blur and focused motion.
