The shoes

by
Gus FAM
Published in Black and White 16 days ago

This photo was taken in a shoe store, while I was waiting for my wife, walking around with my little daughter, two years old, I saw how she was absorbed looking at the model on the poster, while holding her favorite teddy bear, Mickey Mouse, by the tail. I was very impressed by how she looked at the model directly, thinking she was looking at her. Tender sweet childhood, pure innocence

This made me laugh! The child's gaze drawn to the model's photo... Nice pool of light around the child, vignetting drawing the eye in.

Hi Gus! Da hast Du Recht; auf seine Frau zu warten kann manchmal sehr inspirierend sein! Eine Klasse Bild! Manchmal gibt es eben solche Zufälle im Leben! Gruss Klaus

This image is a perfect example of storytelling in photography. The composition is superb and it couldn't be anything else but B&W. This is truly amazing work. Well done Gus.

Un très beau moment magnifiquement bien capturé ! Le choix du noir et blanc est judicieux et le traitement met bien le focus sur la petite fille !!! Excellente prise de vue Gus !

Very good example of work that should be published. Clear artistic objectives set by the author and sharp shot executing these objectives. Girl, you"ll be a woman soon :)

Gus, I like your photograph, 'The Shoes'. It has good framing, and a 'decisive moment' as the child looks up at the poster. It's adequately sharp, and your little subject is spot-lighted nicely. It's a good photo for your family memories, but it's also a statement. I'm not sure you intended it that way. It's a favourite theme of mine - the contrast between the fantasy world of advertising and the real world most of us live in. You could have titled this 'Consumer in Training', and it would make a strong statement. That's just my opinion, of course. By the way, I like the comments you've been writing here. They are thorough, thoughtful, and polite. I think the site wants us to go a bit further than 'great photo' comments, and you're doing that.

It's a great photograph, Gus! The complete illusion that the woman and a little girl is interacting, the woman seems to look at the gir :)) Was that just street scene or directed one? Anyway, it's great work! Like it!
