Good IaKoop 2006-09-19 13:13

Oh my, I must have my 2 cents. ;D

First technically: The composition is great, wonderful framing and close enough to be intimate. Very effective for the subject. I think the lack of focus expressed by some is actually movement. I could be wrong, but this is apparently a 1/15 exposure. In any case, is could be sharper. Just to clariy, that's where you lost a point with me.

As for the subject, it does gross me out. Perhaps I should note here that I am a gay woman, so this is not a political statement. If this were two men, women or one of each I'd still find the tongue shot gross. That said, I think that was the point. There's laughter and play here... the smile on the right reminds my of a little boy defiantly chewing with his mouth wide open just to gross out his peers.

Does this belong on TE? Of course it does! Contrary to those who say "this could be anywhere", there are places these men (boys?) would be jailed, beaten or killed for this. We've learned that Zurich is not one of them. Likewise, some have said ths is not symbolic of the parade. Go to a Pride parade and you will see many posing in a similar fashion. This is very much a part of the culture of the event and symolic of the freedom it stands for.

Thanks for opening the doors to debate ishai!
