This was an important challenge for me as John was the first photographer around here that I really connected with from an artistic point of view. His images tell stories, his processing adds emotion, and his singular ability to use light (that most would be afraid of) to his advantage are all attributes that make him, in my opinion, one of the best photographers on the site.

My entry was based on these things: I went out to search for the right setting and the right lighting, I crouched in the street with my camera, trying to look relatively normal, for an hour or so, and I waited for interesting characters.
A huge thanks for all the excellent comments and votes! I'm extremely flattered that so many have though that I was him. :)

P.S. My comment about his use of light is based on ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) .

Jagar's spirit possesses you. Or you are Jagar. Effectively introspective portrait so solitary among anonymous co-inhabitants of this old street. Gorgeous bw tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 11:22:17 PM
All those bowed heads. Great catch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 10:19:11 PM
wonderful, very much jagar-like.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Perfect composition and light. The people are balanced so well throughout the frame. Kudos on a great image that I think fits the challenge to a T.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 09:53:00 PM
Very good work. Could be Johns image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 09:44:15 PM
Not voting on this one since I saw it before, but I still absolutely love it. If it were up to me it would ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 08:47:44 PM
Nice "jagar like" image, tones are good, along with the cobblestones, lol. One of my top picks. (voted earlier)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 08:38:19 PM
Spot on jagar style.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2013 01:53:57 PM
Perfect light and space. Emotional.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2013 10:03:34 PM
This is a great candid street shot. VERY much in the style of Jagar. I love the way the stones of the sidewalk look with the shadows and highlights. Almost like a flowing stream as they warp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2013 09:52:50 PM
One of my two guesses for Jagar's photo. Very well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great shot, lighting and conversion!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2013 09:29:12 AM
This looks like it has jagar written all over it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 08:54:19 PM
Looks like a Jagar shot, two in a row, hard to tell could be wrong!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 08:23:12 PM
Has the feel for a jagar image, but lacks the deeper hook. Very close, though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 04:13:33 PM
What a character. And the textures on that woman's jacket!!!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 03:12:02 PM
I thought another one might be Jagar's but now im thinking this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 02:42:12 PM
This is the second one I've come across that feels like it could be a Jagar...nice one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 01:00:53 PM
PP close to Jagar's
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 12:10:15 PM
Could be by the man himself but may not be,nice image whoever.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 10:24:56 AM
Oh! Perfectly Jagarish!

On his streets, in his style, with a twist.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 09:17:09 AM
This very much reminds me of John's work. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2013 08:45:23 AM
I could be wrong, but this is my pick for the actual Jagar submission.

02/13/2013 08:12:23 AM
He knows we're he's going, looks dark in them there streets.
