I LOVE this!!!!!
I really like it too. I'm sure someone will hate it, lol.
I love that he's pretty much at peace with the world, because pizza. That the pizza radiates from his head only adds to the effect.
Mmmmm!!! Pepperoni with extra cheese!!!
Nice! Pizza as halo.
While I love pizza also, I think that the picture doesn't fulfill the idea well.
The boy is faded out, the pizza has more contrast.
Good (funny) idea but needs better execution.
Thanks, I see what you mean.
It's what I had in the camera at the time. I remember taking one or two pictures on my digital camera at the same time (this was a few months ago), but they must not have came out good (I didn't upload them to Flickr, so I must have thought they sucked, haha).
I thought the entire concept here was that the boy was light, and faded, and DREAM-LIKE, and the pizza was what he was dreaming about, so the pizza was slightly darker, yet still light, ethereal, and dreamy.
I mean, the whole idea that the kid needs to be Ansel Adams-ized to a perfect, full-scale tonal representation, and that everything in the picture needs the same degree of contrast seems so arbitrary and utterly wrong for this shot, hence my initial reaction, a simple, "I LOVE this!!!!!". Not a comment filled with niggles. Not qualified with a"but" or an "or" nor any other nits or reservations." Just a simple,emphatic, declarative, "I LOVE this!!!!!" I even understood , "Why the B&W".
Why the B&W? Seriously???? One doesn't get the most-basic origin of the image, specifically that the image was shot on B&W film, then proceeds to offer advice about the image?
NOT to mention, this is posted in "The Black & White Gallery."
Ha - don't be too harsh, Derrel. Everything has room for improvement. If I had time to really set something up for this, I think it could be improved a lot. For something I took while waiting for a pizza with no equipment but a small camera I don't think it's bad though.
Of course there are things that I think could be better, but...
My take. A circle of love where it does not matter which is more contrasty or not. The circle of little man's head, the tomato, the pepperoni, the pizza, his eyes, his notrils. A big circle of love....works for me.
But, examples of a different take would be great.
yep, that is love
