I've had a few requests to upload this in colour so here it is. I prefer the mono version myself.

Still nothing new at the moment.

This is the funniest image I've seen for a long time Ken (except for the mono version)! Just love it all over again! SmileSmile

It is a classic, Ken. Still the mono for me, although well worth the upload.

I prefer the mono, too, Ken - but I must admit that even the colour version is an absolute corker!

hello Franken.

The picture, as it is. doesn't work for me. It os not a matter of colour, thr same happens with the black and white version. It might be a cultural issue, or a linguistic one or a humour one.

I think it does have a great potential though!!

I would have preferred someone to be on the left of the frame so the picture has a more immediate evoke of feelings. But, I think you can play with it and transform it so it works with the man on her right. I would have kept the lettering of the poster as it is. But I would have cut the picture of the girl and invert it in a way that she looks to the right. Her eyes are directed to this guy and Oh my God! we have two nervy peekers! Looks like the perfect blind date. It would be funny if it was raining too.

I think the part of the grey colour area on the left of the pic makes it look a bot leaning although to my poor eyesight the wall at the right looks straight.

Best regards

The purpose of street photography for me is you take it as it is. Heavy manipulation destroys it for me.

This is great, finding the advert is one thing, pitting it against the right subject is another, the wait is a problemk....but that bloke is a finisher.

Obviously people are entitled to their opinions, personally, the imperfections and near misses of 'what could have bee'n in street photography in some cases add to the irony of a carefully selected scene or oppurtunistic hence right place right time (not luck) shot.

This epitomises 'street' using a moment in time - he could be a stranger, an actor, a best friend , I don't care - thats the extent of manipulation....This is a great shot - bookworthy


PS - looks an awful lot like Cardiff Central???

You really are a master of street photography Ken, you have such a keen eye for 'the moment'. I loved this classic image in mono and I like it equally in colour, just seems to give a different emphasis somehow.
