I really like this photo, the shock of the white coats connecting the two couples who are both studiously not connecting (probably because of exhaustion.)   This looks sort of like MOMA, but I don't think so.

I'm not sure I understand the purpose of the large amount of negative space on the bottom.  Am I missing something?

xtoph: I've been looking at this one for a while. Really trying to grasp what's happining in this scene. As I can't reach a satisfactory conclusion... I've decided to ask you for an interpretation.

What was it you were seeing?

From my point of view there seems to be some contradictions: From what I can see of beast mode's face... she looks to be happy and smiling. The two in the center don't seem so joyous. Rather they look like they're trying to comfort each other, as if something was devastating one or both of them. There's part of somebody on the right of the frame, but I can't decide if he's part of the story or just passing by. Can you help me out? What was happening here?

Little girl

Hmmm! Cute little girl. Grab shot with 70-300. Would you change the crop???

Re: Little girl

Very cute indeed...! For the framing, yes I think I'd want to eliminate the upermost part... the darkish blotchy area just above the rocks.

Re: >>> Street Photography eXchange #85 <<<

I agree, Frank....and why did I not see that as pointless? And now that I see it, it's annoying. That is, indeed, MOMA where people were watching videos up on a large screen. Well, some of them were watching. I hung around waiting for something I wanted to shoot. ISO 6400. I know that for you that is on the low side :-). But it still blows my mind.

Re: Little girl

I'm probably alone, but I wouldn't change the crop as the space contributes to the story. There are no other people around, and one wonders why the little girl seems to be alone. The space gives the image a certain feel that I like.

You are certainly developing a well-rounded portfolio.

Nice surrealistic capture.   A little more contrast and separation in the shadows might help separate the figures.

I don't know how you resisted the urge to crop out the interviewer and clone out the wire.

Re: trying on II (metamorphosis)

I too am very intrigued by this series, but I have nothing interesting to say yet.

Were they shot at different times and different locations?   How did you avoid attracting attention?

Powerful metaphor.

As Sal pointed out. I cropped with the intention of leaving more depth. That said, you have a point. I re-crop it to eliminate some of the tree line.
