  Mini#38 Best of 2017
Entry 10 of 45
   
 
Despair       ©2017 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       10th place, 98 points
1/160s, f6.3, ISO 125, 178mm, Manual, Pattern, flash
 
Post-Processing: increased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; curves; filter- unsharp mask       Extra Info: Photographs are meant to stimulate and often this is accomplished by a visually pleasing image. I choose this picture for “best of 2017” because, more than any of my other 2017 images, it profoundly moved me.

    This was my #1. It's not everyday that I see an image so powerful.

    I was gratified by all of the comments. The genre is not one that I am used to or comfortable with; however, I am glad I was able to share the image with the Panachallenge family.

    I must say, this is a moving image. You captured the somberness very well. My #1 in a tough field.

    You've captured this moment beautifully. The composition and the detail are terrific and the story heartbreaking.

    A definite favorite, but I would like to see it in b&w. I think it would be more dramatic.

    You captured a very moving moment with your photo. Very strong emotionally toughing picture.

    Breaks my heart to see vets in situations like this - whatever the reason. It's a good photo; it moved me too.

    A poignant scene which, regrettably, we've seen too often. Well shot.

    This is a powerful and devastating image. Expression on both, especially the dog, breaks my heart. It's bringing me to tears. We are having terrible issues with the homeless where I live, mostly bad ones where they contaminate the streets and start brush fires. Such a complicated problem. Nicely done. Probably my #1.

    Usually I look things over here for a while before ranking. Did not need to in this case. Very touching and desperately sad shot - something that you captured at, well, the decisive moment. Really wonderful. Thanks.
