5.20p.m. - In this shot you can see the frustration, concentration and excitement of the trekkers. The excited trekker’s face is a bit soft as he was just about to jump for joy after taking this shot when I clicked mine. This was taken at the little park behind the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris. I love the architecture of this part of the cathedral and was enjoying every moment of it when I caught this.
PP-cropped and slight sharpening.

Hi Aloysius, It looks that everyone was taking pictures, so did you. A fun to look picture with good capture of the actions and the different expressions on their faces. Nice contrast with the background. A nicely taken action image.

You really nailed this one at the decisive moment. I love the clarity of expression on the trekkers' faces and their glowing excitement over the photo shooting. It makes one want to pack one's bags right now...Your superb framing and cropping has helped make this a very successful shot. Very well captured.

I am really enjoying this series by you.
There seem to be so many photographers in this photo and all of them so much into their own photos. (It shows that it is indeed a very strong addiction)
only thing I would have liked to see more would have been a better focus or greater DOF.
tfs ... regards ... sarju

Funny you show an asiatic "TE" in this situation of excitement, its the exact and friendly "image" we have from tourists from Japan.
This is a well done one where you catch well the direction of the shooters. I am amazed how the body works at the same time they cactc the shoot.

Hi Aloysius. Yes quite the array of emotions captured here. Seeing these people's reaction really makes me want to see it for myself. Good job including everyone with a close enough composition so we can see their faces clearly. Well seen Aloysius.

Good candid shot of these tourists, Aloysius, but what was it that excited the guy so much? Maybe he had finally worked out to use his camera! It is always difficult to frame a crowd, but you have done a good job here. Cheers . . . David
