A day at the hospital
by wejoeyComment by Paul:
This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)
Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.
This is one of my 9s - I like it a lot. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:
1. Great focus and depth of field - perfectly judged for the scene.
2. Excellent exposure and wide latitude tones - again perfectly judged, we see all but have sufficient contrast.
3. Extraordinarily cute child, bright, aware and seemingly well but with the juxtaposition of what appears to be a hospital context conspires to communicate a compelling story.
4. The through-the-bars shot is bold, it offers some distance and introduces some order that eradicates sentimentality - a bold choice given the subject matter.
Overall, conveys the compelling matter-of-factness I've enjoyed in nick_hinch
's work. I wonder who shot this one...?
