    Oh!

    Yes. This scene does show exactly how you are calling it. I would assume this is a candid photo, yet you deal with those people's privacy well, letting them mourn there undisturbed and on their own, while you (we) only look from afar. All quiet...

    Thank you all for the comments.
    Sorry i didnt give any info, was kinda busy with school to. This is shot on a cementary that i regurlaly walk by, when im walking with the dog. I saw these 3 people standing there, filled with emotion. I was really thinking if i should take the picture or not, but i did it. It was shot with my 300mm and cropped a bit too. Also used Wally's convertion thingie on this photo.
    Here is a b&w one:

    I would say: "if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all" but i know criticism is often welcome. But this is a little harsh, at least expand on your opinion so we can learn from one another!!!
    I think its a beautiful picture, very emotional.

    I don't think it's harsh at all.... like it says....it's my personal opinion...am i not allowed to express that? I have been the subject in photos like this and it disgusts me....

    I know this is mainly a section devoted to rating pictures and getting feed back...and yes, I also know there is a section, Photographic Discussion, which has a thread pertaining to what I am about to bring up...anyway...

    I guess because I have never done any candid street photography (haven't really worked my way up there yet) and I have had no experience with how to go about it...I am unqualified to make any assumptions...

    That's why I just wanted to ask if you think that this is really an alright thing to do? I mean, these are the private lives of these people and they are obviously very upset. I mean, I could never imagine how I would feel if I, by chance, saw someone taking a picture of me while I was at someone's funeral that was very close to me. Even more so, how would you feel as a photographer knowing that you probably have done much more harm than good to an already sensitive situation. Is it fair to these people that you could possibly be "taking advantage" of them in a time of sorrow.

    Anyway, I hate to thread jack, but, is this ethical for someone to do? I mean, I'm sure it's all about personal beliefs but...there has to be some sort of general concensus on where the line begins and and ends.

    Also, if the mods/admin feel that this post isn't appropriate...just remove it and I suppose if you need to, just PM me.

    -David

    Nice photo, you really captured the moment, a sad moment, but you really nailed it.
