Snapshot / candid photo.
Vienna. A cloudy day. Many tourists regard the Hundertwasser House and look for an ideal POV for a picture. The woman in the photo squats opposite the Hundertwasser House. She follows surprises my view upward.

A very neatly cropped picture, well composed and well captured. It may not have been quite the same without the woman's red coat.

A well framed portrait captured at just the right moment. Perfect juxtaposition between woman and portrait with the added humour of her pose and expression. Well done.

A nice snapshot of this concentrated lady at the front of a very interesting background.I like the idea and I think its very clever done, including the window and the drawing with its smooth lighting inside,into this picture.

Photographing the photographer!
A never ending theme, always a new angle to be recorded...
I like the composition and the expression of the lady, and the old house makes a fine setting!

Hahaha, how do you get this?! Were you posing as well for her to take her photograph? You're so in her line of fire :-).
Haha, nice how she follows your gaze to the window. Well seen!

very funny, Wolf, and part of your genius, to see the relationships between people and printed images. The relationship between these two 'subjects' is fun. regards kevin

Ein interessanter Schnappschuss, ungewöhlich weil der Betrachter sich zwischen dem Fenster und der Fotografin fokussieren muss, das bringt Unruhe ins Bidl, und dass ist einfach toll fotografiert.

It is well seen and quite made up. The colors are right and perfect clearness. The bright color collects the glance. Cheer.
Have a nice day

Good morning Wolfgang,
nice the snapshot of the woman that is weigh down and under the window.I like her placement in the scene,as the existence of the little paint inside the window.The pale colors and the light are well managed.Well done.
Have a nice day,Danos

dear Wolfgang Schanze,
very unique elements in this shot.
reflected Hundertwasser House in the glass, and strange portrait on the paper also in the window.
red wear woman with her camera looking up that portrait.
horizontal stripes on the white wall and round/suqare dots blue/gray panel.
all made a queer air in ordinary view, that stimulates our imaginations to see the back world pasting real world...
Vienna is an unreal city too.

Excellent shot; if only she could see what you are seeing. The balance is perfect between the photographer and the painting. Well spotted.
tomescuc (3291) 2008-08-11 15:21
The anecdote completes this image very well. The image itself is very efficiently cropped to display some essential compositional elements, it is well balanced, and with some nice touches such as the HW architectural elements reflecting in the glass. Excellent work!

Hello Wolfgang, I like your idea in this shot & very well realised. The expression on the lady's face & her looking at the pic in the window makes it interesting & amusing. Detail & colour is excellent as always.
MarianneS (15338) 2008-08-12 8:42
You already should mention the 'humorous' category because it is funny to see this woman, with her camera, posing for you by looking what you are taking a photo of.

a very special action shot here. Full of action oriented and you worked it pretty well. Great combination of the rules of the third, the photographer and the window.
Well composed and brilliant thought and action to grab the opportunity.
