Glaringly Obvious

By SlowSong
People watching a video at Tate Modern.
Might take this down later as I'm only playing while waiting for an important phone call.

A well observed candid....I always like looking at people's body language when they are listening/viewing something....the guy standing is not convinced....

I really like scenes like this. It makes my mind race. Love their expressions and the lighting. And they don't even have a clue you are there. I love this.

Is the important phonecall from the Tate Modern asking you to take this down? Grin

Just love the light flares in this.

The woman in the middle looks both enthralled and puzzled.

Despite various expressions of captivation and/or boredom, non-comprehension they are all concentrated enough to enable you to capture this without being clocked. The light flare a bonus detail.

An advantage of 14/140 mm = 28/ 280 mm well utilized.

Having spent half of yesterday trying to get rid of some spectacularly ugly flare in an image (I gave up and binned it), I covet this. The flare is a part of the story, it's as though they are transfixed by weird unearthly lights. Waiting for The Message to be delivered?
When it works creatively flare is wonderful - one of the wonders of light.

An extremely tricky shot, Chris, which I thought at first was in mono. Then I noticed the colours of the flares. I like this a lot.
