No Northern Lights or shooting stars? Amateur! :)


Bah! I sacrificed a Nikon to the sea gods! I am assured good scores.


Ouch!

Actually, I'm thinking I should have arranged a train wreck on my street. That's what my score will look like.

Should have listened to my son. . . . (Not the "Dad, I'm cold. My feet hurt. You done taking pictures yet? I'm tired. I'm cold. Can we get ice cream on the way home?" part, but he did tell me which shot to submit. Should have listened.)

I took Taylor with me twice this week - tons of fun but hard to think with all the "mom I wanna...." Today she decided she'd had enough this week and wanted to stay home. I had a great quiet day out alone with my lenses. Really enjoyed this challenge, made try harder than I've tried in a while... hope it doesn't tank! lol

24 minutes left. I have my camera on a tripod set up in the front yard, hoping that a crowd of people will wander through the neighborhood. (and walk really, really slowly so that the long exposure works.)

I went through about half of the "street challenge" submissions to acquaint myself of the general direction the images follow, and to try to establish the merits to vote on.

There are so many photos with great techniques yielding results that could do great in a "free Study" contest; but to me, in this "street contest", it's the feel the photo gives.

So, I will follow my heart, when I see a photo that is good enough to say: "This can, may or did take place in a street" then it will be the photo for me.

It is very hard to take a street shot, so I will look for ideas and feelings, and overlook techniques and sharp results, unless the photo has both

Is anyone else voting the B/W entries higher? That's the way I interpreted Henri Cartier-Bresson.

I'm looking for the spirit of Bresson in terms of a narrative and decisive moments. I think good street photography unlike portraiture is that the photographer is the invisible witness.
Some images are just not suited in black and white and I feel some of the entries have just converted to black and white to give them a more documentary feel.

It's Street Photography challenge - not Henri Cartier-Bresson challenge.

I agree with bood ... B/W is NOT a prerequisite for my voting at all. I do not think B/W would have worked for the image that I entered ... not that it matters as it is gonna have a struggle to keep a 5.0 by the looks of it.

Point being ... in my voting, I voted high for invisible photographer ... I really enjoyed being a fly on a lamp post in this competition and I think it really adds a HUGE amount of impact and emotion and voyeurism to this "genre" ... but ... of course ... that is only MY opinion.

In the end, I voted for impact, candidness, emotion, human interaction, and whether or not I got the feeling of "being there".

Whether with colour or B/W or duo-tone or grain or texture or whatever ... It was not a factor in my voting process. I don't think we should totally conform to the techniques of another (no matter how famous or accomplished or respected as a pioneer) photographer just because we LOVE their work. They certainly did not conform to other photographers of their time, lest they would not have stood out so much.
