Is that a statue?
« on: June 23, 2018, 11:24:34 PM »

An image from a few years ago along the streets of Madrid, Spain.

Does it qualify as street?



CxC welcome, thanks for watching

Can I speak open?

This a good example of how street photography is muttered to something peoples do when they stroll the streets on holiday location.
So, yes i is candid, there is a certain interaction and it is post processed to black and white.
and I would be surprised if there was not a tweak of the micro contrast.


So according to the definitions? I let other judge.

About the picture itself, in abstraction of the question.
If it is a picture of the family of the photographer, I would leave it in color, don't try to pimp it in post process, start a Blurb book and make an enjoyable holiday book, where this picture deserves a place.

(I recognize it because I did the same, I'm not to moldy to admit, taking a bunch of photo's and then, at home, pimp the pictures to some kind of definition. At the moment of taking the pictures, I was a tourist, and at home, behind my Mac, I was 'photographer', how can I pimp a bunch of snaps to a 'photo'. It was a tremendous relief, realizing it is ok to make tourist snaps on holiday and let them be tourist snaps)

Fransisco, don't take this personal, please.

Kind regards

Ivo

Thanks for commenting Ivo, and just for the record, no, it is not a picture of my family and I personally prefer it in black and white

No worries, when I post a pitcure in LuLa is because I'm looking for sincere feedback. Actually the worst thing would be not getting feedback at all.

It's certainly street, Francisco. It's capturing interactions between people and their surroundings. The real question is, is it good street? That's a value judgment, not a definition.

Thanks Russ, it is sometimes unclear to me when it is street or not by reading through this forum. At least I know is not about having a street on the picture :)
