Your photos always make me so homesick for Switzerland.

I totally love the image... the billboard's occupants entering the real life of the scene.

Not sure why Nat Geo would want this image ... but I love it!



I may or may not be voting, so please do not equate my comment with any score.

This is a difficult one to critique. I'm almost critiqued out. 109/116.
What is it about this image that would have NG interested? (Rhetorical Question before you get your hackles up). It's not NG "wildlife" unless the kids were rowdy but they don't look it! Mom's showing a bit too much knee and pullup stocking for her long dress, the girl is bored out of her skull waiting for the bus and the boy wants a kiss on the cheek?
Here's the thing. Has NG never posted a picture of a family using public transport? My guess is that "most" of the voters who speed voted this said "Where's the Lion? Where's the DPC eye candy?" etc. and gave you a 1,2,3,4? There are many instances of family shots in NG, few B&W shots, true, but that doesn't discount this. There's a moment. The "Cheesy" Swiss Uncles overlooking the family with an air of detachment. The messy curb.
All of it is eye candy if one just takes the time to LOOK. I'd say it had a fair chance of publication if it tied in with the article. Perhaps high fuel prices forcing the family to take the bus for a change?
Well done for being non-conformist. It's not "classic" NG but I enjoyed it.

Candid photography at its best. A crispness that is practically tactile. And the two trios who could not inhabit more distant universes. LOVE this.
