Challenge #612 - Style & Expression


Style might be something that catches your attention, or you simply appreciate that it is there. Style could be creative design, fashionable clothing elements, maybe some home or office interior decorating arrangement. And more.
(I'd prefer not to simply judge full-length fashion model & wardrobe... however if you have an entry that highlights key elements of such style, go for it.) Have fun.

Expression (if you can work that in as well) might be some_thing that comes off as: quirky, Bohemian, mixed-art, luxurious, bold, asserting individuality, or declaring unity. ...or many other fun impressions and serious meanings you might see.


I will judge loosely: Hopefully on quality photography, but maybe just on a fun item.

===============
Okay, the results are in.

Trumper.
Good. Except I found the near-field, out of focus piece distracting. Had the scene been more coherent, then maybe 'yes'.

M-Six
LL_Bean Style. A contender. I like the bold and clear presentation, plus the related touches out of focus in the background.

Pictoraider
Sento_50
Indeed! I dynamic show of style. I wonder if a bit of cropping could have made this more dramatic, and have it stand out. Nonetheless a good fit to the theme-- here, about getting around in style.

Maureen
"Dapper" ... Given social media's heavy hand, I think that word has been removed from the Oxford dictionary for lack of relevance. Fortunately some of us remember the subtle nuances of the past. Good show and good photo-taking.

JimAskew
Old Toys
I like it. Matches the theme. Just does not stand out. I wonder if some PP could enhance the photo to make more of a statement?

---------------
1st Place Maureen = "Dapper..." Nicely done and just stands out and speaks to me. That draws me in and I am in a different place and time. Isn't this stuff fun?

2nd Place M_Six = "LL Bean Style" Also nicely done. Fits the theme for sure. Crisp and stands out, with subtle background cues of leather etc. Good show.

3rd Place Pictoraider ="...Sento50..." Definitely asserts the theme. Almost a winner. I think I would have preferred to have this cropped to emphasize the bike and rider even more. Some PP could make this one pop, IMO.

:-) Well done Maureen ,very dapper indeed :)
I agree with Carlo 's comments about my photo,i did try to crop it a bit but never seemed to work entirely .It was quite a difficult subject to interpret and quite a spread of subjects .
Well done everyone ,Thank you for hosting

Well done to all :-). Lots of styling going on this week. Congratulations to Mo and the top tier crew! This was a fun challenge and well done judging by Carlo :-)

I agree Carlo my photo could use a little PS magic to amp it up.

Kudos, Maureen. Great shot. Dapper dudes, indeed.

Nice shots, everyone. Good topic. Hadn't seen that one before.

I had hoped it would be stimulating enough and broad-scoping enough to give folks many interpretations.

I recently watched the james bond movie Spectre. There Daniel Craig wore a 'modern' suit... close tapered and skinny legs. I just don't get some of these fashion trends. The conforming.

I do like however the variety of individual expression --- tennis shoes with a dozen colours and mix of patterns, 'yes' watches...sure. Funny things in one's Front Yard (not so much 20 gnomes, though).

I used duckduckgo search (express style shoe -- selecting 'images') to test this out. Got quite a variety of photos there, so thought it would be good.

Cheers,
Carlo

I don't get the modern suit trend either. It always looks to me like the person wearing it went shopping in the boys section at Sears.

Well I am out of town & will be on the train tonight to home so if you can all bear with me, I will get the new challenge up late tonight. If you want to get thinking about what to shoot, think Thanksgiving & Thankful for the theme.

Thanks to Carlo for the win & congrats to Mark & Pictoraider. Would be nice to see a few more entries......;-)a

Congratulation to eveyone. Nice entries.

Mine was a try. I saw the two women located on the diagonale guiding line at each opposite part of the frame, i noticed they were linked by the pedestrian crossing but at the same time were quite unlike each other. The background walking woman dressed in an anonymous grey coat was a welcome element to help me build my image and make my colorful dynamic foreground Sento50 rider pop out...Unfortunately, i was shooting cool street photography in mode M by a cloudy day and the exposure to the existing ambient light was so far 1/160 s & f2,8 for 1000 ISO. I had not a second left to change anything. As the selected shutter speed was too slow, i knew i could not properly freeze the scene. I could only attemp my best to pan the fast coming lady biker. So i paned and clicked. The result is not an achieved one. I didn't get the image i had in mind, i just put my intention in the box. Maybe i will be offered a second chance to make this kind of image, maybe one of you will get it if he/she comes across a similar situation one next day. I hope so. It's why i posted my unachieved entry.

The cool street photography pictures i was collecting wandering along the streets of Paris during this cloudy day : at 1/160 s & f2,8 and 1000 ISO...
