It's the different between a photograph and a capture. Here, a welcoming setting is filled with natural human emotion and behavior. This is exactly the way the scene would have looked if there had not been a camera focused on it. All of this translates into a gifted capture. Just a wonderful shot, and the use of sepia tones here was a perfect choice. I thank you for inviting us to be a part of this moment...that is precisely how it felt in viewing the image.
As an aside, the D300 obviously has amazing clarity at 800 ISO. With a great camera as a companion, you again made a perfect choice in how to shoot the image.
I'd like to purchase the picture and print it on a larger print than offered hereunder - is it possible to purchase the high-resolution file? (for personal purposes of course - not commercial). Thanks, Oren
i just want to say i really like this picture.my eyes were just caught for the first sight.do you mind giving me the bigger one, i want to use it as my screen wallpaper. that would be great!! and i am just a chinese college student,i won't take it for commercial use any way thanks a lot！！
Lovely. The man's face is euphoric and the kind of happy that can't be staged, if that makes sense. And the people watching most likely don't realize they're being photographed, adding to the realism of this photo.
