I don't think these are pictures I would share.

This lady, I'm sure, can look nicer than these two pictures portray her.

I can maybe see that argument for the first shot, but I find the second very touching. You can see the intimacy on both people's faces, I think it's a lovely capture.

I don't think this thread is about people looking their best.....so that's a non-issue. The only issue I have with these shots is the composition. without a doubt there is a story unfolding but it's out of the frame to the right. I would have recomposed a bit to the right to give the viewer a little more context to work with. The shots spark my curiosity as to what is happening....but they leave too much to the imagination IMO.

I agree ... it's photojournalism, so it should tell (or at least illustrate) a story from family life. Mostly, what gets posted is about children .... who are, mostly, quite cute even when they are behaving badly. But it can be about parents and grand parents too. There's no point in trying to sugar-coat or prettify stuff, although we should leave people their dignity, I believe.

Anyway, these shots fit the genre imho. They do hint at a family story ... although they don't quite tell it.

Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.

Yes... The first shot is lacking in framing and composition. That's probably not the biggest concern for photojournalism but there's really not much else in the shot to even give you a clue as to what's going on. But it makes for a good comparison to the second shot of the same subject in the same surroundings. Good lighting, better framing, and a sense of what's happening in the picture. The contrast between the older and younger subjects and their facial expressions. Their reflections in the table top in the foreground. It all makes for a good example of the photo-journalistic style.

That's my opinion of the first image. The woman appears disheveled and distressed and not in control of herself.

Which if that is the case, is accurately recorded in the picture, therefore, good journalism.

From my experience, people of a certain age couldn't give a monkeys what people think about them, appearance, opinions, whatever. I was in the supermarket yesterday and the aisle was blocked by a, shall we say, a particularly well nourished family, who were blatantly blocking the passage of a sweet old lady. She waited patiently to get past, just shy of long enough that I was going to intercede on her behalf, when in a quiet gentle Scottish voice asked "I'm so sorry to trouble you all, but is there any chance you could wobble out of my way a bit'. Now, that was a very large supermarket, and I have no doubt, whatsoever, that every single person in there heard me roaring with laughter :) Now, their faces, their reaction, THAT, would have have been photo journalism.....

"Well nourished"! I'll have to remember that one!
