    I went to a press conference/protest of a group of people that try to put an end to the use of the the N-word.
    Took this picture and I like it. Let me know what you think; what I could have done better. Maybe I'll post a B/W version too, hmmm not sure...

    A black and white version of this image would kill it in my opinion. This image is clearly of an event trying to end racism. Most of the detail is lost in this guys face, which communicates the feeling that they are trying to get rid of, the feeling of being stereotyped b/c they're black. And having the color contrasts w/ this message.

    Btw, i really like this image if you couldn't tell.

    Thanx Tr0gd0o0r and PNA!
    And yes, I like the fact it doesn't show to much details of his face, because this picture is not about him personally as such, but about the protest.

    Classic reportage image - you don't need words to know what this is about. Do nothing to it - what I wouldn't give to know what he was thinking at this moment - well captured:thumbup:

    Feels right.. I like the color version well. Did you crop at the top? It's a bit tight there, imho.

    Good overall capture!
