I'm not very imaginative with titles :redface:

I'm in the process of learning to "see" in black and white and would like to make more photos with "moments" in them. This is one of the attempts. Would like to know your opinion; does this shot interest you or do you find it to be just a snapshot ? I'm not looking at the technical aspect of the shot but more on the vision aspect of it.

There are a few reasons for taking this shot. I like the triangle made by the three heads/faces; why is the face in the tv looking at the little kid; what interests the little kid so much that he is looking out of the frame instead of at the weird antic by the big kid.

The third head, the image in the television screen, is very much a part of the photo. It's in the eyes. Great stuff.

The image works...it has good eye travel......
It has a great irritant.....you asked so I'll tell.....
look at the heads....the eye travels well...now look at the (toaster shape) on the upper left..... that actually completes the triangle your working with... it also lets you see the frame from the window...and that supports the shape of the TV......

Magic I say...Magic......

kskumar, thank you for posting this photo. I agree that it works really well. The man (the fahter)looks as though he could be in agony or distraught, the little boy (his son) wary and almost afraid...and the woman's expression on the TV watching over them or observing...appears concerned and fearful. You caught this moment perfectly and who would have guessed that the little innocent toaster would play such a big role, but it clearly does as it brings us back in to where it's all happening.

Good shot!:bravo-009:

Thank you all, for the response and the insight. I'm happy that I've successfully communicated what I wanted with this photo (my first conscious shot of this type actually).

Honestly I didn't pay much attention to the toaster when I took the shot but decided not clone it out as it sort of felt right. I see now that it was the right decision. Hurray for toasters :smile:.

The small kid is actually my 2 year old son and the larger "person" is my 15 year old nephew (he's gonna be upset :eek: to be seen as the father, I'm definitely gonna show him this :biggrin:).

:biggrin: Maybe your nephew will be flattered because at that age they want to be older, don't they?:biggrin:

Your son is only 2 years old? I wouldn't have guessed that at all. I hope the actual moment was more fun than it appeared.:wink:

You did a great job and yes - hooray for toasters!:thumbup:
