  #135 One-second Exposure
Entry 16 of 27
   
 
Waiting crowd       ©2013 Mepo
Canon EOS REBEL T3i       16th place, 49 points
1s, f22, ISO 100, 154mm, Manual, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Minor crop. Adjusted white balance, brightness & contrast.       Extra Info: This parade keeps the crowd's full attention and they remain very still for the most part; they wait patiently despite the cold and rain. I often get the sense that there are ghosts at every one of these events so I thought the 'invisible' people were very fitting.

    It's amazing to see so many people keeping realatively still. Despite the rain, there's a real warmth to the photo.

    Sure does give the sense of ghosts.

    Some of you probably guessed this was at the memorial service for war veterans and hopefully sensed some of the reverence I feel each year. I've always been impressed by the respect and riveted attention of the crowd both young and old. The 1 second challenge gave me the opportunity to illustrate this better than I had ever hoped. This is probably not a winning photograph but on a personal level it will always be one of my favourites.

elliot: You read the comments!!! LOL Coming from you your comments are especially appreciated.

Jade: I FINALLY got a shot that you seem to like - a banner day for me LOL Comments much appreciated.

    Nice composition and colour use; everything's well balanced. In my favourites.

    I think this is one of those deceptively simply looking compositions which is really quite complex; and the fact that it is candid and not posed really is a credit to your ability to frame the scene well. Really an attractive shot with a lot of depth to it.

    well done. this is more what i was hoping to see in a crowd shot... stationary figures and minor movements from your 'ghosts'.
in my favorites.
