This shot is wider than it is high, so it must be Landscape.   ;D
A good one :)

There are, of course, really only three "classic" genres: Landscape, Portrait, and Square.
This shot is wider than it is high, so it must be Landscape.   ;D

Actually, Eric, there's one other one: Drivers' License Photo. That's a genre anybody should be able to recognize at a glance.

Submit now to win $6,000 in cash prizes!
 
As a a single-image online photo competition, you can only submit one image per entry in one of the following categories: Lifestyle (urban scenery), People (portraits), Geometric (shapes and forms), Moments (perfect place and timing), Public events (rallies, marches, politics, street festivals), Special (shadows, reflections, silhouettes and special techniques), and Mobile (smartphone photography).

Problem is, they, like many similar outfits insist that street involves an urban landscape. It doesn't, as anyone who's studied the great street photographers will tell you.

In the history of photography only four people have ever understood what Street Photography actualy is and three of them are dead.

I ‘m afraid we are stuck with the one remaining authority: Bruce Gilden.

Yeah. Gilden thinks street photography involves walking down a crowded street in a photographer's equipment vest, flash in his left hand, which he sticks in people's faces, and then shoots. He's a real authority on the subject.

I'll take any image from Bruce Gilden over this one. Can't believe it survived even a cursory edit.

You’re not paying attention, Fab. This picture isn’t street. It’s landscape.

Nah, Rab! Gilden just isn't that big a deal. He's pretty forgettable. Here's a clip to refresh your memory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkIWW6vwrvM

No, it is neither. It's a reject.

Well, I know you work a lot in the genre called "reject," but this doesn't fit that one.

Interesting. And such a character is permitted to roam free through the streets of NY unpunished?

You are a very tolerant people.

Probably he chooses his subjects cautiously or else he would lose his teeth. Or roams with bodyguards.
