Heeheee,my dear Johnny that's your first EC and it's my pleasure to congratulate you for a superb street shot:timing,attitude,details all of them in a great moment.Love it,love it.
You can have a PERONI now.

P.S. Open up your comp Johnny and login in've just got an EC which deserves more clicks.You can see now the real interest of epz's members:landscape,close-up,nude and ignorance for photojournalism.Such a shame.

Superb candid Smile

What would this appear like in black and white? Probably not as good.

Well done on the EC Smile

I must admit to doing a slight sparkle on the dog's eye... Scott Kelby's CS2 book, page 292 to be precise!! This CS2 is amazing stuff.

Thanks Ovi for your very kind words.
Johnny - over the moon!

Hi John - When I saw the third pic of the Vatican stairs I thought the well must be running dry and then along comes this shot. I think this is one of the best in the series. I love the way the dog is looking directly into the lens while your man is just reading the paper. There is also great detail in the image even down to the texture of the stone steps and the graffitti on the stones. Finally, I think this one would work equally well in b&w if you wanted to do that. John

I tried this image in black and white and it did not look great. However, now that I'm quickly upskilling in CS2, I'll revisit this image soon in b/w. Thanks again.

Excellent, nice to see photojournalism getting some recognition! What really makes this shot is the eye contact from the dog; so many times it's usually the owner looking at the camera and the dog looking elsewhere.

Superb comp - especially the way they both have their heads tilted in the same direction... And the dog's paw on the bag - perfect timing = perfect shot!

Congrats on the EC and PoTW! Does it get any better?? Wink

Thanks everyone for your comments. Amazed it "hit the front page".
I also enrolled in the Open College of the Arts Photography courses - so I've really lost the run of myself. Kidding aside, I've been meaning to enrol for some time now. I'll be following discussions on this matter in the Forum.

I'm sorry, but I just don't find anything interesting, at all, about this photograph either technically or artistically. There is no indication of who he is or where he is, (the beer suggests he might be in Italy) or what type of person he is, although he might be homeless or something. Just my own opinion.

Love the way the dog has his eye on you; filled with a lot more interest than the man. It tells a good story.

Gorgeous shot. Well done John, very well done. I must say I find you an inspiration. Hope you don't mind me saying this, but you have a "teen age" ZEAL for photography, a very fresh sense of energy, that when I am around you, energizes me (towards my own endeavor(s)).
Go go go, keep doing what you're doing!!!
Oh, but update the KPS pbase site, so all the other members of the club can see your new work (or give them this URL).
All the best,

This is an excellent shot. I rarely have time to view a lot of work on this site. But cam across yours becasus you commentated on one of mine. This is not a tit for tat clicking as some might think but I really like the moment you have captured here. Alan
