Wow, such a dynamic shot. Too bad the person got in your way. Still really great though.

I guess she decided those boots weren't waterproof anyway... This is a poster in a shop window or something like that, right? Pretty seamless. I like it.

First I thought it's an unbelievable moment. Then I realized the reflection of the person in the foreground. So it seems to be a photo of a commercial photo behind a shop window. I went through many feelings during these twenty secons. (amazement - wondering - tiny anger - understanding) So it works. :)

Peter, that's awesome that this made you feel "tiny anger" :)

haha, I was fooled too, that certainly would have been a 'decisive moment'. Great juxtaposition though.

One of the best on the site. The hooded person really detractcs the image as a whole, however. Take him/her away, and you have an image of perfection. I could still see this in some kind of magazine ad. Spectacular stuff.

hahaha... jessyel i got you too i guess!

read the comments... it IS an ad. it's a storefront ad for "town shoes". it's just very deceptive because the foreground person makes it look so ac- cidental, and works so well with the perspective.

you had me fooled too, and i thought that i would never come back here, because your stuff just makes me too jealous. now that i know the truth, i vote for you to be impeached of your blogging position. or maybe not. nice work.
