You all blew me away!!!! Talk about some terrific work. Let’s dig in.
Our first entry is from stphoto…and it says it all.
Dye and responsibility are the protagonists in my book. A beautiful story of Americana life.
The color, the texture, the light and the egg. A simple yet extremely effective narrative.
In your email, Karma, you mentioned that you had wished the image was clearer. I disagree. It is perfect as is. The soft quality and noise lend a timeless tone and enhance the tender image that much more. One of your best shots ever!
What a great conceptual approach to telling a story. Many commercial photographers look to tell such stories. The use of light on the glass is quite nice.

I really like this journalist approach to a classic family scene. The dogs scattered. The boy seriously studying the TV. The girls look at the man who owns the legs. You wonder what is being discussed. Why the boy although in the middle is trying desperately not to be in the middle. The dogs oblivious to what is happening. The image really draws you in. Well done!
IvoryHut – from a far sent one in!!!! Untitled
Urgh…I am so jealous. Ivoryhut, you dazzle and stun me every-time. The city…the lamp…his bliss, her passive acceptance all say so much.
Another great journalistic approach. The composition of the band dancers and crowd is just super. The moment you chose is just dynamite. Staying with a subject to get that one frame when the man’s leg is at the top of the kick is crucial to the drama in this image. Brilliant capture.
