Ok, what is wrong with this image?
The left side is blurred - not in focus.
The background is not in focus and the people are barely in focus.
The background has a lot of noise and speckles.
The composition is ok.
Sorry - Holger
@all those who criticize "sharpness, noise, speckles":
In photography not everything is about the absolute perfect technical (!) image, rather than its composition, the mood an image reveals, the underlying story, the presentation (here in B&W). All of this can be seen in this photography and that was the reason I proposed it for the gallery.
Who cares about some noise if the picture if it's content is great ? Look back at some stunning photographs taken on film with ISO3200 B&W. Although having significant grain, they are more famous than many contemporary images.
Someone also mentioned the left side of the photo is out of focus ? WHAT ? YES, this is surely on purpose. This is excellent work with a very shallow use of DOF, leading you on it's main subjects.
I just felt a bit embarrassed by these technical comments. These days it is all reduced to that. Many many people forget the real thing ...
