Congratulations Emilio on your well deserved DD!
There a story behind this shot? I'd love to hear it, if there is.
... how is this even?.... who picks the DD's?
What, as some kind of joke?
Just so that you know this photo is part of a project www.emiliobarillaro.com/ghosts… . Neither this photo nor the street photographer are unknown, on the contrary. The project has been awarded, the photographer is in exhibition in Rome right these days, he is part of an international street photography collective, he has just published a book.
There is no point in me convincing you this is a good photo, it would be a waste of time. So I'll just let you know that NO, it is not a joke, and it is not just me who likes this photo and recognizes its value.
So you mean to tell me, that this piece was chosen because the artist is well known and not because the artwork itself is exceptionally well done?
also it doesn't matter whether others like it or not. There was people who liked the first Tim Burton Batman movies, that still doesn't make them good movies.
No way. I did and DO love the photo and this is why I featured it. By chance I am not the only one appreciating and featuring it. This is what I meant to tell you.
The fact that others like this photo doesn't matter to you. So your wondering what made me pick this photo is pointless. I mean, tastes are personal, art is subjective, it takes all kinds, it takes all sorts and so on, and your asking me why I featured this photo is pointless because you don't like it and that's it.
Yes but Daily deviations are usually the best of the best. Those art pieces that truly stand out from the rest. Distinctively set aside from the rest by quality, creativity and most of the time hard work. You saying that you like this picture and that other like this picture still doesn't answer my questions. Aside from the artist being well known and a few people liking it, what exactly makes this single particular art piece worthy of the title Daily Deviation? whether I don't like this photo is irrelevant.
Ok then. What I like in the image is the use of a peculiar technique, flash with slow shutter speed to create motion and ghosts. It is not usual in street photography and in this image it creates a strong impact freezing the expression of the woman in foreground. The stares of the two women in background add to the tension and impact of the image. Consider that this image is candid, not posed. The photographer stole this moment in a quite confrontational way. Like it or not, it took timing and skills to capture it.
Great eyes and expressions
Just happened in this image again and it is just so intense... Who is she??? Who are they??
Yeap, that's good, very good!
great street vibes in this photo
