Default The Gritty Real World

Hi guys,

Haven't been able to post for a while as I couldn't login! Anyway, Steves Forum seems to be Firefox friendly as opposed to IE.

Took the shots below whilst in Birmingham.

Any comments / critique, as ever, more than welcome:



Thanks guys!

Read about this shot and others at my Photoblog:

Interesting Dave Hill look to your photos. I really like this look and have always looked at the photograph as the first step in the process for other things. Well done.

I am definitely moved by them.

Take care, yours truly,

Dear Matt, so glad to hear you've sorted out the 'log in' problem!
As with your triptych, I agree with Bynx's comment above regarding 'the Dave Hill loook'. The vigour in your subject's face reminded me one of your earlier posts: 'Cidar Ian' http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...cider-ian.html. You migh also add a closer portrait, imo. I should also point out I quite appreciate your social awareness and discomfort among schizoid individuals and crowds of a globally widespread post modern culture.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

@Conor, if you need any help with PS, then come by my blog and ask away!

@Bahadir, seems like an age since we last spoke, I to am very please about resolving the login issue! I'm pleased you like the shot, for some reason which I don't understand, I never took a close up photo!

I was too busy thinking about the triptych idea at the time and over looked the obvious...tssk!

I'm back in the city tomorrow so will hopefully capture some more intersesting people shots...after a nice conversation first.

(Incidentally, you look to be having a lot of fun in your profile pic!!}

Thanks, I shall! I already have it in my favorites, so I'll be sure to stumble by at some point!

Matt, these are excellent! The second is one of the best examples of street photography I have seen in quite some time! This type of photography is not for everyone, you certainly have a gift!
