Not a comment on the photo, Oscar, but your text reminded me of this.

Ha, exactly! Euphemism it was. Now make sure Rob gets to see that...

That's a good one. A spot-the-photographer-selfie-selfie. Great capture too.

So this was at the back of me and i immediately thought that if this is where we provide our college level education it is no wonder we churn out robots or "corporate prisoners" so to speak...

Horrifyingly beautiful. Agree with the "prisoners" metaphor.

Exercise in repetition and contrast

Cherchez la femme. As ever: the best motivator in the box.

In fashionista lexicon: lean and hungry look with soupçon of athlete.

I believe that in Leica rangefinder mythology, the additional space beyond the covered area would have offered a slight framing advantage though, of course, I understand perfectly well that you'd then have lost the magical "just in the nick of time" aspect of the drama. Had you centred her, then it would have looked contrived. Had you actually been using a hand-held long lens on that mythical Red Dotted rangefinder machine, you might have missed the target completely and ventured into the territory of the Art of the Almost.

Note: this is NOT critique; this is art appreciatiion at a very advanced level.

Had you centred her, then it would have looked contrived.

It was in fact serendipity. I was looking at the patterns made by the two men as they drifted together and apart and their arms overlapped, the woman was a surprise when I looked at the result. So indeed aiming a little more to the right would have been better, but chance already gave me rather a lot. I shan't complain then.

In this one, I've really no idea what was going on with the finger:

Another from the series which I rather like, despite the blown highlights. I took another, but the woman in the hat caught on and was scowling. Désolé Madame, je regrette que vous en ayez souffert...

I think you weren't really looking at the car.
Nice.

Gotta say, "skin tones" like that were more (much!) difficult to get with film. Digital has made some things easier and others not really.

I often get the urge to be able to use my hands to shade in edges, skies or many other things than have to do it via the more mechanical/rigid use of masking off bits and so on.
