Award Shortlist   


By ovi  
This is one of my dearest photograph.The subject a nice guy who could be a good model for reportage and portrait as well.I consider this picture as being a reportage one just because of composition.The background is the key of what I've just mentioned.In less than one second I caught the "decisive moment" when that woman crossed my background.My main subject(Adrian) expresses the real atmosphere of a typical Norwich Sunday afternoon.

Looks like a clip from a 50's film ( apart from the woman with an obligatory mobile stuck to her ear! ). Great character shot.

Very well captured. I love the sharpness of the eyes and the use of a shallow depth of field.

That's quite an optimistic signal that - even with the political correctness patrol going berserk - great street photographs like this one are still a possibility!

They are still out there, waiting for someone not so shy to take the plunge and capture them. And hopefully they will always be!
