there she goes


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

Very heavy on the blue-green tone and rather dark....
just perfect to convey a world or a dream that is just a little surreal ! ;-)

10 Jun 2010 6:27am

@Dulcie: to me it is not a world of dreams, but a world where I feel very frightened and scared . Do not like this street and all area ! Very weird atmosphere !

BlogPhoto from France

Great lighting and framing. Nice urbain portrait shoot

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Fabulous use of the light in this image against it! Very good scene, like in an american painting of the 30's

Larry Elkins from Bisbee, United States

This is a dark, powerful image. I love the juxtaposition of the selective subtle color against the monochrome. This is a particularly exquisite piece of work. Larry

10 Jun 2010 6:47am

@Larry Elkins: There is no monochrome . That is a gray street . Color picture only !

k@ from Paris, France

A strong post-processing to magnify the lighting, this blueish mood is very cinematic, you gave super shapes & glow to the whole, and i like her reflection in the mirrored glass above the painted yellow flower that seems to see her much more than the man who passed by without stopping.

@larans: you know, this street is very mysterious itself . that is why I created file like this . even this girl was walking like walking on eggs :))

@JJ: that is lovely news . she will be fine very soon . one of my babies ( twins ) was in incubator for many weeks , and now, he is much bigger than the other one who was very big baby :))

Mark Johnson from Rural Colorado, United States

Very nice eerie feel to it. I can't decide if the lady is walking or running. I like the art of the wall and how it casts 3d shadows just like the window ledges.

Martin from North Platte, United States

I really like the blue cast, and the sillouette, Im thinking a camera on auto wouldnt have givin this exposure, hwo did you decide to change it to get it to this?? its Brilliant.

10 Jun 2010 5:09pm

@Martin: NO, it wasn't Auto setting , but of course an original image had a normal, calm tones . I felt to go with these tones, that is all ;)) maybe because I do not like this street , and I never walk there . This is a Car Shot , quickly and only once ! .

Wow Mariana. Wow.

A strong PP. A very "thriller" mood in a sense. Dog and girl like thefts in the night... I really like this rendering. Very moody and encouraging imagination. Brilliant.

The mystery woman and her companion/bodyguard. It seems that these may be mean streets or at least eerie ones. Your treatment is co cool!

Stéphane Thémèze from PlateFormeRonde, United States

For me it's more here she comes. She draws so much attention in her allure and poise, captured here. And the atmosphere you brought to the scene. Even though dark, it is not dramatic or scary, but dreamy. Maybe the dog is scary, reason why he let her go. Beautiful treatment around the light and beautiful capture.

G'd Day now.
