Love and Ice Cream by Les Lincke, PPSA

June 2021 - Love and Ice Cream

About the Image(s)

Love and Ice Cream was taken just outside a gallery in Dubai. I came upon this scene at the entrance where a grandfather in Arab dress was treating his grandson to a huge ice cream. I was taken by their obvious attachment, him to his grandson and the boy to his ice cream. I guess grandsons and ice cream are common favorites throughout the world.
The photo was taken with an Nikon 810 with a Tokina lens. LR cropping and sharpening

Les, nice eye to eye interaction between them and the kid is mesmerized tasting his ice cream. Nice contrast between classic (characteristic outfit) and modern, what the kid is wearing and the electronic watch on the man's wrist. I find the blue bag on the floor very distracting and pulling my eyes toward it all the time. I jus reduced the saturation to make it less obvious. Image is sharp and the two people with the blue bag form an inverted triangle which helps to the composition.   Posted: 06/05/2021 12:27:51

A beautiful story with two different generations. The way the little boy is looking is interesting as he looks busy with something else other than the ice cream. The lines of the staircase added a value for the composition. I agree with Isaac with his little touches.   Posted: 06/08/2021 05:04:05

A great capture between the old and new, young and old. Kids eating ice cream often make interesting subjects. I see a halo effect perhaps from a brush tool adding more light to the subjects? Issacs adjustment is helpful and the inverted triangle comment is useful knowledge for me to remember.   Posted: 06/15/2021 07:46:19

Les ...beautiful lighting that add dimensionality to the image. nice interesting grouping of arms and legs and close relationship between the two subjects. Harmonious colors and clothing typically found in that area of the world. The cyan blue bag adds a color contrast to the cinnamon and orange of the clothing. Good story as the older man enjoys watching his grandson eat. I used perspective crop tool to straighten and level the image somewhat. Great story telling.   Posted: 06/16/2021 20:30:52
