Nice capture. When I saw it first, the quality, especially the noise disturbed me a little. But later I started to like that noise. A little later I wanted to a workshop and did it. I changed many things, hope you like it. Check it out.
Best Regards,
Alp

Piękne. Niewymuszone, naturalne ujęcie. I te orwoskie kolory! Zdjęcie magiczne właśnie przez barwy. Uważam, że czarno - białe dużo traci i staje się tylko zwyczajnym zdjęciem.

My mother loves your style. You inspired her today, she wants to turn one of your pics into an aquarel painting. Can't wait to see that :)
It's crowded, action stand-still...very seventies and very much alive. Top!

Pozdrawiam z Genta,

Nath

I like this, George--the grit (grain) works well again. The telephoto creates a nice crammed, crowded big-city feeling, particularly since you wisely included no height or sky here.

I'm not sure how using digital makes Mr. Nakamura and Mr. Fuketa the authors of their pictures, though, any more than Leonardo da Vinci's paintbrush supplier was the author of his!

Regards, Ken.

Great! There's the grain, of course, and it's a little dark. But all that belongs to the photo and to the time it was taken ('70s). I like it as a document of daily life in Łσdź in those years (I didn't expect it so busy).
I don't like the workshop; it's another photo; too much polished, and a less Polish image of the '70s [... I like word play].

I saw some of your photos (today no more time). And I read The country I left behind. I'm not sure (you're a difficult mind to be perceived), but I guess you miss Polska.

About the old/film, new/digital discussions, my opinion is that there isn'nt much to compare, they are different things. Anyone has its value for their time, their subjects, etc. We don't compare Salvador Dali with Rembrandt, do we? None is better than the other; both are different.

Pamietam!!!
To rog Jaracza i Piotrkowskiej, prawda? Ten zegar i przystanki autobusowe i neony i napis na przejsciu dla pieszych ulozony z kostki! Szukalem dlugo zdjec mojego ukochanego miasta z tego okresu. Marzylem o starych pocztowkach, o cudzie, ktory pozwoli mi znowu zobaczyc te wielkie, amerykanskie krazowniki szos zaparkowane na ulicy Wieckowskiego, z neonami odbijajacymi sie w chromie zderzakow. Cud sie zdarzyl - sa nim twoje zdjecia.

To jest Lodz? !!!
Pewne znaki nie myla : oznakowanie miejskie, ksztalty samochodow...
No ale gdyby nie to, to pomyslalabym, ze to jakies wielkie miasto w Ameryce albo w staro-zachodniej Europie. Coz za tlum, no i ile tutaj samochodow !!! Az wierzyc sie nie chce, bo moja wizja duzych polskich miast jest jednak bardziej "przestrzenna" : wieksze chodniki, samochody nie stajace w zadnym wypadku na krawedzi chodnika...
Doskonale jest to zdjecie, az czuje zapach miasta.
I ty tylko 14 pkt za te fotke dostales?
Smiech.
