Power

By Saastad
Found this motiv just outside the new electronics store. Here you will find a lot of power.
I really like this motiv, and i hope you will enjoy it too.
I will also upload 3 other versions of the same photo. This is my favorite.
Thanks a lot for all support on my latest photo! Also a big thanks for the awards!

Wish you all a fine evening

Beautiful street set Arne!
Great processing and composition,
My slightly preference goes to the

I'm empty of awards today, be right back tomorrow 😁🏆

The sepia one suits the scene best, I feel, for the reason Ian stated.

Hi.
I think version 1 tells the story better than the mono versions. It takes the power from the girl and delivers it to the man who pulls himself to the gym.

Love this the van infers motion next to the stationary woman and she invokes power.

The mono gives it real feeling and depth 😊😊

Quite a powerful street scene but I like the comparison between the poor soul in his wheel chair and healthy busty lady in the poster. I prefer the colour version as it seems to give better separation between the wheelchair and the background.

Good street photo, i would prefer the original image as it has a bit of a hard edge to it, which you'd expect of a street photo.
i would prefer a bit more definition of the person in the wheel chair (like in version 3) as after all he is one of the main interests that makes this image.
