Steps


Street work, not for the faint hearted, an art form, a joy for those who dare, easy to get right, easy to get wrong. The joys of capturing our society as it goes about it's busy day. A joy to behold. Colour, sepia, black & white or however we choose to depict it, does it tell a story? Will it stand the test of time.

As we take steps in our daily lives, we hopefully move forward, move up, take a few steps back in order to be able to move forward, but we should not forget those moments where we are at peace with ourselves and all those around us, be it hugging a loved one, talking to a friend, on the phone, having a meal, just relaxing and taking in the atmosphere and joys of the day. Remember, these are the Steps, Steps we have to journey through each days of our lives.

Nice shot, did you get hit with the back focus bug of the 24-70 or was this your intended focus? either way it looks pretty good.
Suby & Sinem: Nope, it was intentional. Glad you like Dotun smile

Not sure I like that the background is in focus and not the foreground.
Suby & Sinem: It was intentional E, why does the subject in the foreground always have to be the one in focus? Know the rules, break em but make sure there is reason to the madness smile Check this image out, same thing - http://alakija.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Pit_Performance_%A3%21%3Bhash%A3%21%3B1_/

There's alot of good stuff going on here. I like the processing. But I am with Etomi...why is the background in focus and not the foreground?
Suby & Sinem: Tell us why the foreground has to be whats in focus? Is their a rule that says any image where the foreground not in focus means image a duff? Know the rules, so when you break it, you breaking for a reason, to still tell a story smile
Me not saying the background in focus is a bad thing smile
Suby & Sinem: LOL, you already guilty of pushing some shutterchancers that way smile
like your processing and your guts

yeah why the selective focus not on the embracing couple

ah never mind me likes all the same smile
Suby & Sinem: Because the embracing couple are not the centre of the story, its what is happening around them thats the story smile
The focus I have no problem with: but the leaning steps and toppling columns is you being a bit lazy? grin

Street pics are hard. I summon the courage now and then, but always think I'm going to get a punch on the nose!
Suby & Sinem: Interesting about the leaning steps smile

I like this and get what you were after with the focus, but the first and biggest thing I noticed was that the columns arent vertical. Makes me feel a lil motion sickness lol. Overall I like it.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Ellen, hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoy showing it to the world smile
