    A new picture for a new week here :
    I can get better pics than that from my broken 20D.

    Rocha's gallery is like a nightmare that just gets worse and worse.
    What model Holga does he use anyway?

    And is it me, or does the color seem a little bit off?

    A bit of subject motion too... :)
    <g> in case anyone misses the obvious smiley... (You can't be too careful
    around here these days...)

    I don't like to knock photos, but I do wonder what he wanted as the focus
    (no pun intended) of this shot.

    Is he trying to convey the permanence of the light and trees compared with
    the walkers? If so, that would seem odd, since only one tree is in focus,
    and the light is out of focus.

  6. It looks like there is some kind of building over to the right....I wish he
    had taken that. It might be a lot more interesting. (to me, at least)

    I must be the only one here who likes it.

    He didnt' catch the shutter speed/walker speed just right.
    I think you need to have both legs visible and the head
    at least vaguely humanoid or the result is disturbing.

    I have wasted an awful lot of film trying to get the
    right blur. A digital would help: you immediately know
    you missed it and after hitting the delete button
    you can try again, and again, and again. After wasting
    a half-dozen rolls of film I tend to give up on an idea.

  9. And I thought that I was the only one here who didn't like it.....After
    going back and looking at it about a dozen times, its beginning to grow on
    me......Maybe it isn't so bad after all. At least, I can now see that those
    "black blobs" are pedestrians during a time exposure.....

    I want a disturbing result...

    Thanks for your comment ! :)

  12. I agree, if the figures were obviously human the shot
    wouldn't work.

    If there isn't some mystery in the art, a bit of work
    for the viewer, the result is 'so what?'.

    Most viewers don't like to work.

    Making just pictures showing the reality is a little bit boring
    for me. Sometimes I like to try to make different things...

    This serie of pictures show the reality as no body can
    see it. I think it's interesting for that.

    After... People can appreciate or not. It's another
    Goal ! :)
    Thanks Nicholas, I appreciate ! :)
