Well, I have to admit that this kind of pic is very personnal... I staid in a room of an old appartment in Harlem for few days, and I felt really good in this area where you live mostly in a real multicultural place! One point around Amsterdam and the 125th was the night life, like those hair dressers opening late , and more then hairdressers, that s real places for people to meet and talk or just relaxing and going slowly... perfect life style in my opinion... I had a shot closer, but I chosed to publish this one because it includes the feeling of the street in the dark and the view u may have on all those insides... definitly love Harlem lifestyle! (PS: no tripod, just a street shot)

solitamente si è soliti riprendere dall'interno verso l'esterno però in questo caso la regola inversa appare molto efficace.
Essa, inserendola in una composizione piuttosto ben fatta ci permette di aprire una finestra su un mondo fatto di intimità e di vita quotidiana ripreso con molti dettagli e con l'atmosfera tipica del vivere quotidiano.
Ciao e buona notte

Part of the lifeblood of a city like this, the real side...the local people and shops make for some of the best opportunities without question! I really like the emotion that's evoked from a shot like this, it feels connected with the locale.
I'll always appreciate the touristy things, and photograph them I have...but this offers up a much more intimate and personal attraction. Great idea to include the adjacent door, I believe it aids in the visual, letting us know it's part of a neighborhood. The cover of darkness also adds atmosphere to the imagery, a feeling of being there on the streets taking a look through the windows while out for a late night stroll. Solid result too for taking this hand held, nice work!

This is such an original and special shot Sebastien. The subject shows a side of life that we seldom see on TE and it conveys the sense of community you speak of in your note. I am impressed by both the composition and light management too as you include a feeling pf 'place' which fleshes out the narrative. I admire your ability to capture a DL shot of this quality, something I would love to be able to do. Warm regards rosemary

Street picture, mais la partie droite est bien vide et j'opterai pour la supprimer pour avoir les vitres éclairées et la vie à l'intérieur de ce salon de coiffure.
