Fantastic shot, full of religious atributes and eschatological symbolism.. tensed, thick, sinister..
You can only guess how long time I needed to recall my old TE password to tell u this way, how we miss.. That's true surprise but it seems that only at TE I can find you active..

Master and Servant. one of the most typical kind of relation in Gay World which during that hot Parisian day cried out so loudly for crowd acceptation..
Somehow the most shocking.. adult men wearing leash, walking on their knees, being kicked in their ass..made such a shots myself but frankly, failed in relevant, artistic tool choice.. couldn't find the beauty in the ugliness.. to see it as metaphor rather than reality which is so hardly understood.. and this is sth I looked for in all Gay Pride stuff..
What I like about your shot the most, is very high contrast which gives us a documentary scene as taken from a dream.. real but not really.. in this case it helps a lot:) and the men at the right face expression.. it gives so much theatrical action to the scene..
and, last but not least.. sb in the middle of all that crazy mess apparently liked you..:) have you noticed that, Fred?:) he looks so welcome..:)

You made a really intensive and accurate light-management direction here Sayeed.. Boy's sight caught in between mixed dimensions given by shadows, reflections, glass surface..
2 seconds is not enough to catch what belongs where:)
First i thought I'd prefer thigh crop without brick wall at the left.. now I think that surprising face lost in wider surrounding strikes even more.
Well done indeed:)

Morning boy & the shadow of his profile by giorgimer (34899)

The angle you chose for mixing the boy's silhouette with endless panorama makes the biggest impression.. there is sth twisted here.. proportions of the boy's body reminds me the troll rather than a real human being.. sure, his shadow is some kind of "extra" here but anyway thanks to the angle I feel the depth, some kind of, wind?, movement in the space..

Regarding your remark about rice alcohol I perfectly understood that light management wasn't crucial while you made this double portrait:) but.. because like it very much decided to improve those missing factors uploading the WS with my version of your pic..
Didn't make a lot, just increased the brightness and contrast but a difference is significant, as I think, showing that you presented us, in fact ,first class National Geographic capture:)
take care, agn

Alive statue.. beautiful with tender light and delicate pose..
with so typical for Japanese architecture, background, might be the perfect illustration of the Michellin guide:)
Sorry the girl is not looking at us, such a direct contact would be even more attractive.. anyway like her calm and lost-in-thoughts charm.

A ja wolalam wczoraj:) Dzisiejsza wariacja na ten sam temat o wlos wydaje mi sie przesadzona, oczywiscie w strone estetyzacji i efektownosci, ktora na tyle obraz "oderwala" od ziemi, ze patrze na niego jak na reklamowy trik z przesadzona obrobka a nie fotografie swiata rzeczywistego tyle, ze pieknie ujetego..
a to nie dodaje mocy tylko odbiera..
kluczowy jest tu pierwszy plan, sztucznie rozmyty, ktory odbiera sile reszcie.. no i utrzymanie calosci w zlotych tonach, jednak niewiarygodnych.. a szkoda..
wracam wiec jeszcze raz do uznania wczorajszej wersji mocniej trzymajacej sie ziemi, co wyszlo jej jakos na lepsze, w kazdym razie jak ja to widze)
The Bunny Girl by delnaja (2054)

This is one of the cases, I'm totally uncertain we watch girl or a boy.. anyway, let's agree, the day of her/his nose surgery wasn't the luckiest one.. ?
and for that reason your portrait of the - thin fancy Bunny in the urban environment - seems one of the saddest of the series..
evident beauty given by Nature has been spoiled by the human hand, by the human endless run to be perfect, to be a star.. or just: sb's else..
instead of model from the cat-walk we watch day-light-Thriller - character
like the delicate light and your touch here, Fred..

Absolutnie fantastyczne jak ten maly robaczek pnie sie po chaldzie.. moze i to zreszta jest zwykla gora ale mnie przypomina serie zdjec slaskich,pewnie przez glebokie cienie i dramatyczny kontrast.. na poczatku trzeba mocno pomyslec nad rozpoznaniem czy widzimy mala palczasta pchelke czy czlowieka na rowerze.. w koncu wygrywa to drugie ale czas namyslu wydaje mi sie tu cennym walorem a fotografia nieposlednia -
Bravo! Welcome to TE Hell:))
