Black & White Sunday : Imperfect, very imperfect

A ton of imperfections here…too far away and not precisely sharp (took this from a moving vehicle), the girl on the right is slightly obscured by a pillar, as is the chair AND there’s part of a person coming down some stairs BEHIND the girl on the right which makes her look a bit odd….. so there you go! But, I still sort of like it, dunno why…but it’s Havana!!

Over to Paula’s for more imperfect here.

  1. I like the shutters, and the star motif over the stairwell entrance too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I like it too – but we are definitely biased towards Havana photos!
    I lik eten way it has captured the people interacting, but why must people stand behind pillars?

  3. I bet you have much more imperfect ones than that, Sue! 🙂 🙂

  4. I really like the composition which feels like life in action. True, the image isn’t as crisp as you may like but consider the Amish who deliberately include some imperfection in their work since nothing is really perfect here.

  5. I’d never have noticed the imperfections. Thanks for pointing them out! “Life in action” is exactly what you’ve caught: theirs and yours!

  7. Life is not perfect so why photos should be. A slightly imperfect shot is a better representative of a life. – just my view. I like this one a lot. I saw it yesterday on my phone while I was busy visiting family, but could not act on it. Thank you very much, Sue, for this brilliant entry. Have a great week!

      You have a point, Paula, but I know a lot of my images are less than perfect….this one just had rather more imperfections than I would like!

      • Whose photo is perfect?!

      • Sue

        Well, it’s how you as the photographer want to show something, and sometimes one gets it as one wants!

      • Ah, yes, I see what you mean How important is it to you that others see in your photos what you see?

      • Sue

        Well, I think I want others to see what I see to a fair degree, then I have succeeded at some level – but other times, I think it’s fine if it works for me!

      • Yes, it is only natural that we expect others to see what we see. I hope I did not bug you with my questions. Thank you for the beautiful entry. 🙂

      • Sue

        Goodness, Paula, you don’t bug me – I like questions, I like dialogue!

      • 😛 🙂 Me too, I like them too.

        Yippee! I’m reading a book by David du Chemin, a Canadian photographer, in which he says we need to ask more questions to help us along the creative path ‘why am I taking this photograph?, what do I want this photograph to say’ and other such. Think about what you want to achieve, how are you going to achieve it? (Lens, light, lines, colour….whatever)

  8. I really like the Photo in Black & White. its look like we seeing some in flash back.

  9. I wonder what’s in the building. It looks like its seem better days.

  10. great pilars – lovely decay- looks good in phots

  11. I love it too! It kind of portrays the vision of Cuba I carry in my head. Every one of my photos would be eligible for this challenge 🙂
