This one and a lot of the others in his portfolio are underrated in my view. The simplicity of many of the images is key.

Here's one that I think shows a keen eye - someone's obviously been looking around their every day environment rather than driving to well known places, and has got an interesting and amusing shot.

I have not done a very good job of contributing to this thread myself so time to come up with another link.

I think Ben's shots are under-clicked at least partly because he has a great, but perhaps unfortunate, knack of winding people up on here. A shame because not only do I think he is often misunderstood, but he is clearly an accomplished photographer as I think this shot demonstrates.

There are some common themes here.

B&W and feature people. So what does this tell us.

B&W generally means that the thumbnail is lost in the gallery - you could argue that it should stand out for being different.

People - I'm sure that a lot of people looking through the gallery think when they see people pics "not interested in other peoples' families" or something similar.

People pics that do well are generally bright and colourful and/or have already received recognition from Pete. Or they are by well established photographers on here and the models themselves have become well known by sight.

So if it is votes you are after forget people and especially if you want to use B&W Wink

That just tells us that Koen likes b&w shots of people. Sometimes the simple answer is overlooked...

No what it tells us is that the easiest way to find images with low votes is to set B&W and/or Photojournalism and then set the sort order to votes ascending Smile

Well that's what I did, but then couldn't be bothered to post any Tongue

I'm surprised that this one didn't receive more attention. The colours and shallow dof really pull you in to those eyes!

This person's portfolio is very intriguing. I like this shot because a lot is left for the viewer to interpret. Although the title provides us with an idea of what it's about, a lot is left to the imagination.
