Wonderful title that changes the way i look at this. I love it.

well captured maciej...yes indeed peole have strange shadows and will try to observe that now after having seen your pic...the letters add to the drama...just an observation, it feels like the woman is off with her partner in the shadow to the mysterious lounge where only weird couples are allowed...thanks for sharing ths graphic composition
davido (1982) 2005-04-29 6:06
Incredible! your shot is just beautiful with this funny shadow!
toddadams (575) 2005-04-29 6:20
I can't help but laugh. What a funny photo. But I'd love to know more about it in the notes. Was the shadow a fortunate accident or did you get the impression of a gorilla and then snap it? Surely this was a surprise when you looked at the result.
MKING (3054) 2005-04-29 6:43
Now that's really amusing-- lucky indeed. She probably wouldn't find it too flattering though :)
I like the extreme shadows around the edges-- gives it a sense of depth.
avigur_11 (22077) 2005-04-29 6:57
Yes, that's how I like it, Maciek, with the black frame that merges into the picture. Excellent choice of b/w and a wonderful contrast. Great catch. I only feel a bit sorry for this lady..
khmelins (960) 2005-04-29 7:28
fortunate and funny. nice the frame with the words. i feel it a tiny bit unbalanced towards the top right corner, maybe a bit of cropping needed..
pascal13 (2098) 2005-04-29 7:38
very funny this shadow,maybe a coincidence but excellent composition.
rbcy1974 (20758) 2005-04-29 7:39
very well captured indeed, the Gods of photography where smiling at you that day :)
karina (1109) 2005-04-29 8:06
It looks like a fat little ogre is following her :)
Great BW, I really like the contrast here. A nice clean composition too.
Homerhomer (4080) 2005-04-29 8:18
Maciek, this is so funny, bet she would fall into depression after seeing it...
...mirror mirror tell me who is the most beautifull gorilla in the world....
Funny and good at the same time.
Nit pick could be her touching the frame of the door, split second before could have been better.

Really funny photo!!
There was new discovery in a shadow of a person becoming so interesting by time and a timing of an angle.
I think that you took this art and humorous!excellent!
mrbialy (2568) 2005-04-29 9:49
No, no. Zdjecie zupelnie nie w twoim stylu - sam musisz przyznac. Zastanawiam sie czy widziales ten cien od razu czy zobaczyles go dopiero pozniej podczas ogladania, ale to nie wazne. Zdjecie bardzo dobre, ma swoj niepowtarzalny klimat. Podoba mi sie ramka, swietnie pasuje do calej kompozycji.
AmiBe (6042) 2005-04-29 10:09
good shot, very good eye !
I like your minimalist note ! ;-)
Good natural framing.
AnimeshRay (9087) 2005-04-29 11:20
This is so hilarious!! It is amazing that you could capture such a fleeting moment! Terrific framing.

Gdyby nie nota to bylbym kompletnie zagubiony. Dopiero jak ja przeczytalem i sie dluzej zaczelem przygladac zalapalem o co chodzi. Zamierzone czy przypadkowe? Ciekawe. Trudno to jakkolwiek ocenic punktami (daruje sobie wiec) bo to jest zupelnie nie moj styl fotografowania i byc moze go w zwiazku z tym nie rozumiem. Zastanawiam sie tylko nad jednym. Czy zdjecie powinno byc wymowne same w sobie (bez notki) i czy dluzsze przygladanie sie nie mija sie z celem zdjec...
Rozumiem tez,ze fotografia to medium i ekspresja. Chyba mam konflikt... :)
nygus (8178) 2005-04-29 13:25
dlugo się tam czailes, podgladaczu :))?
eleparc (24063) 2005-04-29 14:46
great picture maciek! the inner side of people? i love this shot! you had the right timing and eye!
haha! who denied the darwin theory??? you just proved him wrong! haha!
tongapup (0) 2005-04-29 15:21
ha ha ha! hilarious. really good photo too. looks like you did some really chunky PP work but it works perfectly. this somehow has the spirit of erwitt about it...
ndb1958 (9289) 2005-04-29 16:28
Everything is said ... great shot! Congratulation!
Rinie_Hoff (9340) 2005-04-29 18:57
Hi Maciek, I have said it before, I like your pictures from cardiif very much, you of course have a fine eye foor good moments, and this is a very nice conposition, framed by dark ness. The characters are very nice in it, and the vertical lines of the door as well.
alimo3 (6854) 2005-04-29 19:16
great to see such a very different style of image from you !
for me a good photographer do not have to be predictable.
nice to see that you can switch from Beautiful to humour.
kinginexile (2598) 2005-04-30 2:12
Wonderful, no critique, to be there and find the detail that makes a shot, then capture it at the only moment possible (just guessing), IMO this is the picture of a born photographer, period!
Galeota (10338) 2005-04-30 2:16
Unbelievable how you got both "A"s cropped by half. Very good Maciek.
Luan (12971) 2005-04-30 3:29
Oh yes Maciej,
very well seen, what a coincidence the light persperctive modify our vision. Excellent and funny composition.
justa (0) 2005-04-30 7:35
Ale suuuper zdjecie! Swietny kontrast, podoba mi sie ta ciemnosc wokol i tylko swiatlo w centralnej czesci zdjecia. Swietnie wykadrowane, no i rzeczywiscie ta pani ma rewelacyjny cien, hihi, szkoda, ze ona o tym nie wie, na pewno by sie wystraszyla, hihi, pozdrawiam.
manu_itu (305) 2005-04-30 8:27
And some people have graet eye for them ;-)
Another great composition, show of colors, balance, light and mood. It's really really wonderfull!!
bartpogoda (783) 2005-04-30 12:36
great man... what can I say?
dolin (15647) 2005-04-30 14:05
Very nice shot, with a good light and a superb b/w.
I like the 2 "ambert lounge" and the shadow.
Katharina (401) 2005-05-04 5:01
genialne ! i teraz wlasnie widac ze w niektórych kobietach siedzi potwór!!!
keribar (43841) 2005-05-07 2:56
When I look at your pictures I cannot help myself thinking how a guy whao started photography only 2 years ago, can perform such incredible shootings ? You seem to have caught " At once " the essence that makes a good photograph which gets the attention of people who were not present when you took it. You are really gifted. I am not exxagerating !

sayzey (2358) 2005-08-07 19:57
Hey Maciej, this is a funny shot! It looks like one of the stages of evoloution diagrams! From ape to human! Well done : )
jbweasle (9373) 2005-10-02 19:42
Ha ha ha ha! This has made me laugh more than any other pic on TE. The fact that it is brilliantly executed as well is a great bonus. Your note is short but perfect.
