It's Now or Never

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/400 second F/6.3 ISO 400 210 mm


"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

Veronique from France, Switzerland

Is there a special story with the shoe ? She has beaten arms.

15 Oct 2012 7:57am

@Veronique: i do not think so. she just took them off to soak her legs in a pool. beaten arm or cut veins ? I think cut veins.

Gipsy Ele from Basauri, Spain

Clever shot that leads us throughout a kind of imaginary visual corridor before we get to the final point, the young woman sitting down and inmerse in her thoughts!The single shoe also gives power to the scene.. It reminds me of my shot here:

15 Oct 2012 8:04am

@Gipsy Ele: thx . I saw your image and see no similarity with this one .

J.R. from Urasoe City, Japan

Did you observe the places on her arm where she has apparently slashed herself, more to this story than meets the eye:(

15 Oct 2012 11:49am

@J.R.: yes, i saw that . very problematic girl, I would tell !

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Superb composition, I feel she is watching someone under water and they need to come up now!

15 Oct 2012 11:49am

@Christine: actually she is ignoring this guy in front of her, looking aside. i was looking at them for a while, and can tell he was all about her, but she was not interested ... a few minutes later another guy appears, and she was in his hugs, happy, smiling .. will post portrait picture of her and this guy she waited

tataray from france, France
