Z- Love the plume of smoke. The shot reminds me of Pink Floyd's album cover.

Rodluvan, I like it but I have difficulities doing this kind of shot


Thanks!

Anyway, if you by "these kind of shot" mean exploiting homeless people just for the heck of it I agree; I don't condemn it, but I have little interests in it and shy away from it. The person depicted here is one of a rather common group of "bottle-collectors", i.e they collect bottles to get return money (ab SEK 1/bottle). Obviously none of them are well off to decide their time is best spend like this, but I'm fairly certain we're not talking about the more vulnerable people like drug addicts, mentally ill or otherwise homeless people who are left with little or no choice, but to live on the waste of the people better off.

Rodluvan, I don't condemn it, some people and you have shown very good shots of different shades of "outcasts" of society. I adore the shots, as many of them are true characters and the photographs often carry a lot of emotion. As you I also shy away from taking pictures from people like this. We have lots of beggars these times in my town, I just can't get around photographing them (and paying), I always feel to exploit their weakness or their "shock factor" (like missing legs) for a good picture, although it is this what makes them earn money, and they probabely wouldn't even mind, if you "pay for it".
I didn't mean to critizise you at all for taking the picture. I takes some courage to take this kind of shot.

some harmless street shots:

Oh, to be clear, no offense was taken and I didn't think for a second think you condemned it. My comment was more of a general one.

take care,

Crazy! Did you use a Photoshop filter? What is going on around the light in the middle?

I like that sense of mystery, Lieutenant Z. Jack the Ripper might be right around that corner.

No photoshop filter, just a little bit of "flou gaussien" (don't know the English word) in NX2
