Gotcha! by wchild Gotcha! by wchild
 
Finding something from the sidewalk. I think it was a business card. After picking it up she took a few steps and stopped to read it.

Great and I love the high key effect.

I agree with much of what Mary wrote. In short, I feel that I need more context. I don't mind your processing style, though. ;)

You're right. The context is missing. It's a snapshot allright. I saw her approaching, focused, followed her and all of a sudden she bent down so I clicked without further thought! :D

Street photography is a life long journey I think. =)

Thanks for your input.

:icontheyardplayground: the image would have certainly been more interesting if we could see what she picked up from the ground. And the image has a bit overedited look, with too many detail in the concrete and a bit over sharpened. It looks more a candid portrait than a street image because of the tight frame and vague background. Nevertheless a curious moment that you were quick to capture and the body gesture, and I found it curious the male clothes the woman wears.

I agree. The hard tonal contrast for sure is not street-like and there's not a real 'catch' or that special something to make it pure street. Thanks for your response. It's much appreciated. =)

He! Mie rupean tuollaiseksi vanhana, olen muutenkin aina pyrstö pystyssä tonkimassa jotain. :D Mainio otos.

Heh.. Hän löysi jotain jalkakäytävältä. Tästä noukkimisasennosta noustuaan hän käveli pari askelta ja pysähtyi tutkimaan löydöstään mikä se sitten olikaan. Siitä tutkimisvaiheestakin minulla on otos, jonka ehkä joskus julkaisen. :D

He, tänä vuonna olen löytänyt jo liki 40 euroa kadulta. Kerran 20 euroa, toisella kertaa kympin, kolmannella femman, kerran 2,50 ja sitten jotain pikkuhiluja. :D

Muutama vuosi sitten poimin Lohjalta jalkakäytävältä 50 euroa. :D

Hyvää tuuria. Vanhan rahan aikaan löysin kerran Oulussa kaupan lattialta satasen. Muuten löydöt on olleet kolikkotasolla. :D

Silloin markka-aikaan löytyi aina keväällä lumen sulamisten aikoihin järkyt määrät kymmenpennisiä kaduilta ja muualta :). Oi niitä aikoja. (90-luvun alkupuolella kun piti mennä aina kioskille ostamaan vitosen pussi irtokarkkeja tekniikalla "noita kymmenen pennin karkkeja viidellä markalla kiitos!". Voi myyjätätiparkoja...)

Kevättalven sohjokausi on paljastanut monta kolikkoa minunkin silmilleni. =)
