One of Life's Great Ironies ...re-appears: this once-lovely child; one- loved beautiful woman, now lies before us sophisticated viewers...for examination, contemplation, and even,perhaps, judgement. I too would have also tried to capture the moment, the interrogating , querolous look on the woman's face: is he using me. Or shall he have pity, and give me something?
This image would be better used, to educate our tempestous youth...as to the wonderful heights, and pitiful abysses, that comprise life's long, wandering road.
Markol: There's so much wrong with this, I'm sorry but a Leica user completely messing up a photo with Photoshop. DPR audience voting this to be the winner. Ok, who am I to say what others should like. To each his own.
This over-the-top PS does no-one any good. Waaaay too heavy-handed...looks like Spielberg's take on a Mars sunrise..
Amazing. Both the girl...and the guy who captured the moment.
Much appreciated: her life-long quest with photography; and a very well-done, intimate video. Vivacious and interesting lady, and and co-incidentally also reflects my own journey and photograhic interests. Tony Webster, Barbados
Lovely...especially the little fly (mosquito?)...You DID see it, n'est pas?
Brain switched on. Take bow, Jeremiah!
Shades of Ansel Adams! An even more interesting read of his herculean efforts, lugging massive gear all around the Rockies etc, and waiting days for the precise magical moment. to press that button…er cable. BTW, I was thrilled to see many of the Maestro's cameras and gear , on display at that super Banff Springs Hotel, 20 years or so ago. Unbelievable testament to our hobby..or chronic addiction, whichever you choose! You are walking in a giant's footsteps, Mr. Krieger- well done!
I'm looking forward to the full DPR review. I have sent back my Canon 17-85mm IS USM, twice already, and the repairs/ costs just don't cut it ( no cleaning of the elements either for a total $300 or so!) If, as I hear, this 15-85 is the sucessor to the problem-plagued 17-85, then I say "good riddance". And I'm hoping that this new lens restores the brand reliability.
If I get the message, this is a very good "always-with-me" CAMERA, which holy smokin' pancakes- also has a phone included. Hmmm….now if it was also waterproof and heat proof, we could flip those pancakes...
Just beautiful, and one of those cool folks who share all they have, and all they know.. Thanks ben. Tony Webster, Barbados
...and also, maybe, colour the bird pink? THAT's my lingering beef with worshipping at PS altar..where does one draw the line , and retain one's sense of integrity?
