I would like to see this closer to the subjects which would crop out most of the road on the bottom.

And all those satelite dishes throw the effect that the people actually live in the trailer park

There's too much of the parking lot in this shot to make it very interesting. You can't really tell what you're looking at.

A little too much foreground. Good entry though.

I think getting closer to the subjects would make this have more impact.

Modern Gypsies. All with satelite dish. Poverty? I give it 7 because of the sentiment for Gypsy Life (I knew few of them quite well)

Good subject. You should have tried it in B&W. Colours and contrast not very good.

eeeew nasty, smelly, dirty, thats just digusting... now that just not seem like a comfortable place to live.. nice job.....
10/27/2004 06:45:35 PM
I dunno, the satellite dishes contrast with the theme, IMO
10/27/2004 03:35:27 PM
I like the empty street in front... it gives feeling. But i would crop still few parts... the trees on left and sky till forest... would make more focus on spot they live.

So poor they've all got satellite TV??
10/27/2004 01:26:25 PM
Do they HBO on those satelite dishes?
10/27/2004 11:21:58 AM
noise and subject missing or too far away.
10/27/2004 07:28:10 AM
they can't be that poor with all those satellite dishes! unintersting angle...too much parking lot in the foreground.

Are gypsies suffering from poverty? I see a line of motor homes all with sattelite dishes and wonder, they may be in a poor place.

Looks like The Snatch.
Nice one.
No al calcio moderno.
