"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

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Timeless is definitely the word that comes to mind, not only for the Amish boy and his cap, but the feeling of the produce and image quality. Very nice, Mariana!

good subject, well captured, great colors!

Don Levesque from Saint John, Canada

A timeless photo! By the clothes the boy is wearing and the sacks of potatoes, you would say that this was taken in the 1940's. I love the processing!
For me this is a 5 stars***** photo!

15 May 2011 1:03pm

@Don Levesque: thanks Don .

Frida from Sweden

Excellent colors and light such a timeless photo.

Kenny from Eastsound, United States

Very nicely composed and processed. To me it doesn't look old but more like two worlds coming together in one scene. The person in the background and the bright colors juxtaposed with the boy in the hat.

Sam from Chennai, India

Excellent shot. Nice capture of this boy's expression ... :)

15 May 2011 6:36pm

@franz: thx Franz . Yes, Mennonite boy !

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A very interesting image of this young fellow in his hat and jacket that almost remind me of a uniform. I do like his hat/cap a lot. I'm guessing his family is involved in growing some of the produce on display in this market. Nice work, Mariana.

Is market, non Super amrket! I like the Market's Village...

15 May 2011 7:21pm

@Oscar: no, not a super - market :) ha ha

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I really like this technicolour scene, easily could have come from a film. Like how your reds interact with the colours of the sack cloth.
Everything about this image, which may have been shot just a few days ago, throws you back about sixty years.

15 May 2011 7:50pm

@Curly: thx Curly !

Williams from East LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

Terrific. I really like the rich colour here. The backlight on the boy is perfect.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

Looks like you've got quite a farmers market, a place I usually start my Saturday morning visiting. This has a timeless mood to it.

15 May 2011 8:59pm

shoti from somewhere in, China

tremendous power. the vivid colors, idle afternoon light, and the very solemn expression of this child all make up for a wonderful photograph.

Encore un scène extraordinaire ! Ce qui m'épate réellement ici, c'est que tu as réussi à rendre en couleur l'effet d'un Noir et Blanc.
