Looking out...Gazing back


I took this photograph while I was "going-walk-about" in San Francisco last December. The giant B+W portrait in the window caught my eye, but the people gazing up at it as they walked by was the story I was trying to catch. [P.S. This is one of those shots where it's best seen full-size].

I like the way in which the bystanders are caught but without detracting from the main focus of the image. I also like the tonality of teh shot, too. Great composition all round and with a sense of narrative, too.

I usually don't like selective desat, but, I think it works great here. I like the feel of this. Both polished (large poster framed in gold) and gritty (everything else b&w) at the same time. Well done!

Yeah, well done! I like the graininess or grit of the whole thing - and you're right, it's much better viewed full size. Nice!

I love how Abercrombe and Fitch has those larger than life people shots on their stores. I have admired them for a long time.

The people walking by really add a sense of scale to the poster, which would have been otherwise lost. This shot really does need to be seen full to be able to appreciate the details.
