It's nice to see you and Barbara (OregonGal) venture into the candid, BW realm. A real challenge. I guess working with these smaller cameras makes it a bit less intrusive and more tempting.
First works for me because of his expression, added by a diagonal formed by the tubing. What is he looking at? Where does the tubing go? Is it related? A nice candid capture.
Second doesnt engage me
Third nicely captures father and daughter. Wish she were sharper.
Fourth. Got to think about this one. It does make me want to look and and look again. The shallow DOF kinda bothers...Show more →
Thanks for your thoughts and detailed comments.
A mish-mash I know. Fun, but what puzzles is the distinguishing traits of good versus ho-hum. On one hand, having browsed a number of street blogs, often images that draw raves leave me scratching my head - tilted, über-contrast, questionable focus, and lots of faux grain. Certainly not what we, PC contributors, are accustomed to seeing. On the other, Allen, aka @airfrogusmc, posting on BWVision has a knack for capturing interesting, entertaining juxtapositions of lines and shapes that are pleasing to observe and invite further study. In that frame of reference, #2 appeals to me on a different level than the others, lines of bench, off-whites, etc. plus her tuning out everything around her - but, that is just me.
Eric Kim, a former participant on BWVision has an interesting blog with lots of solid references for anyone interested.
Again, thanks for looking and offering comments,
