I really like this pic. I like how it forces the eye exactly where you, the photographer, demand that it go.But if you wanted to do a silly version, you should totally photoshop the head of the creature from Alien in the dude's pocket he's holding open. Or maybe a picture of a gallbladder.
Love it, smooth tones and lovely textures, kid is adorable, and sort of in line with Sharona's train of thought, I offer this Caravaggio painting...http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l140/gardevias/Art/IncredulitdisanTommaso.jpg
Nice image. Gives me that feeling of strolling along with the crowd. The little girls face makes it though.
@ Michael: thanks for the laugh. You definitely elevated my initial concept.
Gerry, I think I was too tired last night to fully express, but I have my vocabulary wits about me now: You've got a vanishing point, what with the shape of the crowd and also up between the buildings, where I want to drift at first glance. But your depth of field wrenches me back to that darling face staring right at the soul. (Of course, then I pop over to Jesus in a Windbreaker, but just for a moment, then back to that face.) Great job again. Question: did you produce as much black and white before moving to London?
Thanks all for the wonderful comments I like how you feed each off each other. Before London I did very little black and white. I feel that street photography is grimy and for me it needs to be in Black and White.
"Jesus in a Windbreaker" - love it! :-)
