full of intensive expression....
full of experience as well as <wisdom> in early childhood....
some have so much and throw too much away,
others have almost nothing or even nothing and 'ld be glad to have all what others threw away....
ancor' una volta: bravo per questa photografia, Sergio!
Beautiful shot. Alwaya crystal clear & such gorgeous colours in all your wonderful shots Sergio. You have so many fans here on FC & you're such an inspiration to many of us. Always a warm welcome when you return from your travels to share your beautiful view of the world through your eyes. Many thanks for sharing your amazing work.
your photos are so emotional and beautiful, shows us the real world and makes us appreciate our part of the world more.
like i am so greatful to have a beautiful healthy son and to have food on our table everynight, and not have to worry when we will have food next.
your photos are just so amazing and always make me appreciate my life even more, the impact you have on all these members is wonderful, heaps of fans as jamie said :)
Accidenti Sergio...arrivo buon ultimo..ma che dire...devo comunque commentarla...sei un portento, fai foto come si conviene ad un professionista quale tu sei.
Come sempre ti ammiro tantissimo.
Beautiful photo, but I'm in doubt: the cropping is not good (imho)... on the left side I would've cropped the small black strip away, on the top right corner I would've loved the whole bike steer.
Just imagine the same photo without the bike, it would even be stronger...although you would need a new title :-)
Thank you Olivier. But I cropped a wide part of the bike (I converted the horizontal framing into a square format) and I left only what was striclty necessary of the bike. The bike is an important element in the story telling; more it adds a special dimensionality to the subjects.
For me this is what makes a professional a true professional. Such a simple shot yet with huge impact & full of emotion. Always a joy to view Sergio's work & he's always welcomed by a huge army of fans here on FC. Always crisp & clear shots with beautiful colours. Great to see the world through Sergio's eyes. Without a doubt PRO!
You hear some clap-trap talked about images sometimes. The presentation is spot on and the crop adds to the story of the image. The dynamic between people and their environment is often what lifts an image out of the ordinary and certainly in this case. How do you make a bicylce disappear when it was obviously the artist inhtention that it said something about the subjects.
Once again I find myself agreeing with Olivier and not seeing the story that DD sees ... Also I just can't stop looking at that little strip on the left side and wondering why it was kept in-frame by SP. Nice shot and certainly an improvement on the portraits but whilst many on here always love an ethnic shot I don't automatically appreciate them and can still see a lack of connection between the bike and the two children or indeed the bike's importance and also the poor composition on the left side. Skin comes across a bit 'neat' as well, as noted in the past.
Fotography is about images, memories and their interrelations, not about reality whatever that is considered to be. Focusing on technical aspects only and thus judging on whether or not there is a story simply reveals a very limited ability of imagination in the spectator. Technical skills are no doubt helpful, but they are just a tool. And this is not a tool only place, is it ?
I like it pro
I'd prefer it without the bike and just the kids + cropping is not too big a deal. But the clarity is absolutely superb and the main subject, I think - the 2 kids - makes me want to learn more! A small pro for me;-)
The fact that this image has caused such discussions in the gallery voting section makes it a pro for me. I like the contrast of the somewhat affluent looking bike and the wanton, distant gazes of the children. They are not even looking at the bike because it can not fill the need in their distended stomachs. The story is more important than issues of crop and enhancement. Pro
Thank you so much to all.
I received a lot of very different comments about composition, editing and so on, but my style and my goal is and will be always to introduce the beauty and the nobility which are always inside (and outside) the sad stories/images too. In my images the priority is for the emotion; then, just after, the content comes. I want that people feel as the persons showed in my photos live. And I hope they can reflect about the reason those persons live therefore. Itís simple. IMHO, to do this better sometimes itís necessary some editing (for example about the skin texture) to improve the message of innocence and nobility of the subject(s).
Hallo again Sergio, it is just what you describe in your comment above that touches me. You have an amazing skill to describe humans and feelings. Your editing is perfect in my eyes. Who cares about rules? You get the point visible in your photos and that is what matter!
your photos are emotional as you yourself are saying,Sergio! the message it's all the time quite clear as it should be in photojournalism and i find one simple word for your work, which i think says all: Beautiful!
