About the Image(s)

I love Italy for its late night street life, omnipresent enticing alleyways and for that unrepressed Italian spirit. The country overflows with architectural photo ops. However, I prefer capturing the spontaneity of the people. This was one of about 6 photos I shot of an ongoing heated discussion over something apparently very important to these two guys.

Oh my, it looks serious! I can only imagine. I'm amazed you captured multiple shots without being observed! I really like the story your image conveys through their hand motions, and the man in the truck, yellow light, and on the phone (one can imagine he might be calling for help). If possible, I would re-crop to add extra space on the left side behind the uniformed man. The original is nice and sharp and sharpening this version might make it pop!   Posted: 10/05/2019 18:08:21

What an interesting photo. No one is eyeballing anyone so there is a disconnect between the characters in the story. Makes you wonder what is going on. The guy on the right looks like an important, and perhaps impatient, businessman. We'll never know. Whatever, you have captured a moment in their lives. Agree with the notion of bringing back some of the space on the left.   Posted: 10/08/2019 01:49:52

Interesting image. It's so easy to try to read into what may be going on. Whether or not there was a lot of emotion, your image certainly helps create the feeling. I like the crop but as Belinda mentioned, the gentleman in the suit is blurry in your edited version but not the original. The three people in the image all add to the energy. It looks like you were very near the action.   Posted: 10/09/2019 18:02:53

Good PJ image; wish it was all sharp. You can see the vein in the neck of the guy on the right.   Posted: 10/12/2019 11:42:03
