Ever since Sal told us that young people do not have interesting facial expressions, I've been haunted by that thought.

Frank, I wonder whether you envy their youth, of course you'll deny it but I guess you do in your deep psychology. Not particularly an interesting picture but their clothing is nice, I mean fashion and they look handsome and beautiful. I'll be lying if I say I don't.

The problem is I like the beauty and grace of their bodies. But their facial expressions tend to empty.

Yeah, mannequin-like, is it staged?

Re: >>> Street Photography eXchange #57 <<<

While I like the color and content of the image, I'm not sure of the subject since the girl in front is not in sharp focus. The center girl seems also to not be real sharp. JMHO.

Oh to be 45 years younger.

Young couple on Atlantic Ave Delray Beach. This one's candid.

This is obviously posed. They were obliging and flattered.

Re: Paris in the summer ...

Are these misters or something used to cool off hot city streets? I really like both photos.

Re: pushing carriage

I love the lines, the shadows, the stories in these. A really nice batch.

i like the tilt in this case--it orients the picture around the hand, which is the idea, for one thing . also, any horizon correction would lose considerably more than one figure at left. perhaps if i had been shooting a wider lens, i would have tried to keep the horizon level.

Just a slight rotation -- not much. You'll lose the brim at the left but the wrist will be moved into nearly the centre of the frame.

i am a bit surprised that you want to see lighter shadows than this. they seem pretty light already to me. i don't know if our monitors are showing the same thing. if you have the option, try viewing it on an ipad (or iPhone) screen, and let me know if you still think the shadows need lightening.

I find the skin on her neck and chest nicely detailed and it seems that brightening it a touch would help bring that detail out. Not much, otherwise the dodge will be obvious. Given how bright the background is, this may be question of taste. I'd also consider fiddling with the plastic-wrapped stems under her arm to bring these out more.

Your mileage may vary.

thanks for the comments.

Thank you so much, Hulamike. Your comments do wonderful things for my ego.

the contrasting couple and the sense of style are exceptional. i suppose you see more bowlers over there than we do here--pity for us.

Bowler hats are not popular any longer. I have only a handful of photos of people wearing them and I am glad I was lucky to shoot this one.

i don't know that the square crop is doing you any favors.

This was the only crop possible.

Something bad has just happened outside the frame to the left. THis is wonderful - the expressions, the variety of people, the unanswered questions....

Sal

Thank you Sal. It is better to leave the questions unanswered.

Re: read and sing

I do agree with Chris. The first two have a wonderful atmosphere, the third one falls short.
What was the event you photographed?

So....let's see...just a guess: you must be 150 years old?

Re: Never too old

Sal

Actually I'm 69 and in pretty damn good shape. I was obviously referring to the young good looking couple in the photo I posted. How old are you? I bet I could beat you in arm wrestling. LOL.
