[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The nightmare of all parents : watching their children growing and going away, alone.

played on the focus to pass the foreground as a second hand element, even if it takes a big place.

I found that late afternoon light gives a melancholic mood.

Great powerful shot Olivier,
The sense of being left alone is there,
The composition is perfect
and focus is where it shoudl be,
I liek the path curving around out of frame.
Well done.

I agree with your comments Olivier. The OF adult does take a lot of spaace. I tried to figure out a crop that might help, but really don't see that either. The child and the path are well done.


Bonjour Olivier
Voilà une photo qui parle vraiment. Excellente mise au point et très bonne composition. On sent presque l'inquiétude dans l'attitude de la maman et l'insouciance dans la démarche de l'enfant. Belle symbolique rappelant le tournant de la vie ave le tournant du senetier.

  • Great

million miles begins with several steps...

Bonjour Olivier,
Une photo que je voulais commenter depuis un certain temps...
Elle me plaît vraiment beaucoup, tant au niveau photographique (lumière, focus sur l'enfant, composition et contrastes) qu'au niveau de son contenu. Les enfants qui, un jour, prendront leur envol.
Il y a beaucoup de symbolisme dans la façon dont tu abordes photographiquement ce thème: la maman devient floue et le chemin suivi par l'enfant ne sera pas forcément tout droit. Mais toujours cette belle lumière.
Bref: une photo comme la vie...
Merci du partage & amicalement,
