Hello Al,

This goes back to the very beginning. It hasn't lost any of its appeal either.

Good to see the photograph and we should all appreciate what you did with USEFILM.... :-) 9000+ views.... :-)

One of my favorites and still a favorite. I have been away for a long time, how are you?

I recently posted a book I published online. The whole book. Don't know if there is a place to post a book onn your site, but I would appreciate it if you could. Would give people an idea of how to do it. I self-published 600 copies, 300 soft cover and 300 hardcover/slipcased, signed and numbered. I have sold out and am therefor giving my book to the world.

The website for the book is
www.WeWalkinBeauty.com

All of my native images from Usefilm are in the book, and all are in the Smithsonian.

Best to you Al,

Gary

Interesting twist on a street scene. I especially like the composition -- the main subject about to leave the frame suggests a more historical spin in my interpretation. Almost like I turned and caught this scene out of the corner of my eye. Still nailed the rule of thirds on a panned shot. Well done.

Al this is a great image. You've got all the accolades for this one, so I'll ask a technical question. Is it possible to use a Nikkor lens with canon SLR? Someone may have noticed it alredy, but I didn't read that comment. I'll check again.

Blurry images is one of those creative projects that could find many interesting captures there.
this project indeed can changes the look of people that think photography just is the certain moments and focus and sharp captures about life.
this shot that seems has captured from P.O.V of a driver in car is too creative. about the square composition i have some doubt, althought it is not a complete square but the lines that have continued by the long exposure time could be enhance the feeling in horizontal composition.
the movement character has appeared like a dream and it is like that the story of the shot is continue with his/her motion.
the spot sky on upper left is the only thing i think is a bit distract for this shot
thanks Al for share this skifuly shot and congratulate for the award..

Sir, this is not the best you have in your work place,a motion image should have one of the 2 sides with more details,weather the forground or the back ground,also here where the person is your forground he is walking into the wrong area of the image,place this person on the left side and givem him enough room to walk through ,you gonna find this image much more interesting ,there is a great different between bluring an image this much killing all of its details and the matter of creating a motion effect .you do not have to like me at all but i do like you and thats where it should end.very best salam to you and yours ,the good man.

I am a huge fan of blurry images. I love the motions the action. They just seem so alive to me. this shot here is amazing. it's an excellent blurred image and I love the silhouette person walking by. kinda like a ghostly image but not scary at all. great shot.

Hi SITE ADMIN
I am currently enrolled in a Master Degree in New Media.
One of my assignments is to Create a genre analysis of a text from the cultural field within which I practice. For example, you might choose to analyse an artist's blog as an example of a new media genre or, if you are a writer, you might select a poem (either on paper or a e-poem) and analyse this in terms of its genre. Questions to consider might include: ? How would you name the genre of this example? ? What are the signs within the text which work towards meaning-making? ? What cultural literacies would a 'reader' of this text require? Make sure that the assessor can access the work you are analysing, either by providing a URL or a scanned or re-typed copy, depending on the type of work you have chosen. This may be provided in an appendix.
I am contemplating analysig this site in terms of possibly defining it as a GENRE.
I would love to hear from you and your colleagues about the site and what you feel its main purpose/intention is.
Can you email me direct at
mcphoto@bigpond.net.au so that I can discuss some issues with you.
Cheers

Please NOTE:

I've uploaded this image into the new project until there are more images, this is due to a bug in the front page for new projects (the thumbnail does not appear). It will be removed after we have a few entries into the project.

This is not ego.

Thank you for your consideration.

Oh and something I forgot...
congratulations on your site for all the reasons all of us know (quality, smartness in design and all the rest). It is the best I have found and I am really glad every time I enter. I plan to become a donor the next days.
Congratulations on an extra reason...
The amazing thing here is the fact that you "meet" people through images... is is like a virtual game as there are no profiles and bla bla. You see a photo, you like it and then oops!! you find the creator and you feel like a child in a candy shop!!! because he or she has created more photos like the one you like!! It is amazing how many things one can learn about the human nature just looking at each one's creations!!! An alternative way to perceive reality.. and then you understand the style of the person and you can view the images he or she likes and again ooops!! Another world...
You think "this is how I would shoot photos that I will never shoot, and this how he or she would do the same thing ".
I wish I see more of your work dear friend. You gained my respect!
keep the good work making us happy!!

Mary Vareli Mary Vareli   {K:15826} 4/16/2004
This is a magnificent photo and I cannot understand why it is rated with 4.8!!!
I have noticed, not in here but in my country, that this kind of photos are considered a matter of chance and are not accepted!! What I believe is that it is a different kind of photography and I would really like to keep meeting people who like doing this, writing studies on this and help it go a step forward.
I give you a 1000 dear!!
I would like to listen to some opinions concerning this matter. Doing one thing (experimental photography)does not mean that something else is neglected (traditional models of shooting). Further to this after some point the outcome is not a matter of chance but the photographer knows how the color "breaks", is aware of the tones and the motion type.

Greetings from sunny Greece

Ammiro tutti quelli che riescono a fare un mosso artistico. E questo lo Ŕ.Mi piace l'uniformitÓ dei colori, l'unico colore diverso Ŕ quello sullo sfondo. La figura scura in primo piano Ŕ quella pi¨ importante ed Ŕ giusto che stia proprio lý. Da spazio al movimento e lo enfatizza ancor di pi¨!

Why is it Altaf that you indulge others on your site but do not indulge yourself?
I came here to dine at your table tonight only to find a few appetizers without an entre. I did not have enough to feed me and I am leaving hungry...hungry for more. I don't care if you are the originator and moderator of this site (and thank you dear Altaf for your MOST generous conbribution to SO many, by the way).

But may I suggest humility is not welcome here...? Your site is a stage, a ballroom where we can all dance or create without self consciousness. We have critics and fans but who in hell cares? Art is subjective so throw it on the canvas and some of us will dance and some of us will sit it out! Please provide for ALL of us MORE of YOU...more of your art, your heart your talent. I love this shot...you found color and vibrancy on a dull rainy day... and you captured it...I found this capture more valuable than capturing a Bengal tiger. Warmest regards.

Hi there. i'm a new photogrpaher here and its a good chance for me to see and learn. i have read all the comments about this picture and after i read all of it i felt i might miss something about photography!! Becuase i have few photos like this one was shot by my friend's children when they played with my old camera. I don't know, maybe our friends here said their coments regarding your other great work. anyway, for my taste. its not a photo, its something else which i might miss. (by the way, i dont see any rain or feel anything about anything , i just see a lady with umbrella u shot from the right seat of a car with confused exposure and little something on the photoshop) its opinion of a photography jonior :) your other work is great. good luck and happy new year to you.

Jose, I think this is a good picture, too. However some of us have noticed that you are posting the exact same phrase on hundreds of other pictures. I glanced down your comments list. Of the last 96 comments that you made, that exact phrase was used for 94. This is 'spam'.

Please try to be more thoughtful and constructive.

Great shot! it's funny with NYC: Once you've seen the yellow cabs the colours is associated with the city. Here, I notice a yellow/orange colour from the lights of a car, but together with grey overcast my mind goes straight to a busy city like NY. Seems to be a good weather to stay inside and have some miso soup...

Kristina Kohut   {K:49990} 10/2/2003
Hihi... The site administrator, and photographer of the day plus EC! :-))) I like this shot, it has a really mysterious feeling over it and I find it very interesting! Somehow it gives me a feeling of "psycho's view", and how a disturbed person is sitting in a car, trying to find victims to kill or something. In our "calm" Sweden we have had many strange murderings and rapes etc lately, and they think that it's because psychos don't get help... and atmosphere feels a bit scary, even though I guess the risk is still small that something happens. But the mind is circulating around this quite a lot, and perhaps that's why I feel what I feel with this shot. It's very good, very strong, very original and interesting!

Mark Beltran   {K:32612} 10/2/2003
It moves. It moves like the rain, the wind, the cold, the energy of the city. It allows the eyes to do what it wants, and that is to pretend it's seeing movement and time progressing. I've seen pan shots like this and composition that's better, but honestly I give it 7/7 overall because my liking for it carries that well.

Hello Altaf,
Congrats on POTD! This photo has a wonderful composition. I especially like the movements, you have captured it very well. People hurry at their homes, trying to hide for the cold and the rain. Well done, great atmosphere! My regards,
Diana.

This photo sings to me in it's own special way. From such a bustling city comes poetry in motion from that one percise moment of capture.

In the words of Erin Cleary...
"I see music as the augmentation of a split second in time."

Considering the unpredictability of the technique (of panning while shooting), this could have been a mess. Fortunately you got a great result - it's the 'impression' of the wet gusty weather that is so effective here.

Excellent Altaf; I really like the horizontal fluidity of this photo, and the umbrella is clear enough to ground the viewer in reality. Will this example help my recent boat reflection photo w/ long exposure do better here?;>) Nice to see some of your work. Cheers. Craig

I will leave technical comments aside - many have been made but I will speak to the emotive/artistic aspects of this photo (I prefer that stuff anyhow).

This is how blustery weather feels so that makes it good imo - the technical aspecs (comp, tone, etc.) don't distract from the feel so that makes it excellent imo.

It never occured to me you posted so I am late to your work. ;)

Well, I am definitely late to the party here, but let me just add that I think this is a wonderfully effective image, rendered as you intended, and as it should be, in my eye. I say this after reading your reply to Neil, but it just reiterates my initial feeling upon viewing this, and that is: To me, the BEST part of the composition is the umbrella person moving off frame. It SO emotes this quick glimpse feeling of a passing moment in the NYC rain. The rest is wonderful gravy, with the blurred, wavy lines adding to the sense of hurried movement. Outstanding and evocative work, Al.

1. It is panned.
2. The red line stays because it reflects what is going on in the left side of the frame.
3. I don't like to photoshop my work especially when I think it works a lot better this way.

Neil Shapiro   {K:2092} 4/19/2003
I think the idea of capturing movement here was good; however, the movement would have been better panned than shaken. Also, the red line above the umbrella is a distracting element--you might consider removing that. Most importantly, I think it would have been much better if the person weren't already partly off camera.

I was wondering, if this photo would have gotten this much attention if it was not taken by the owner of this site. I will have to try this, slow shutter speed and shake the camera :) Good job Altaf.

Great image Altaf...

Decisive moment....inclement weather....fast action....and you had your camera in position to get it. Blur adds to the mood. Thats why they say...when the weather gets bad...the pictures get good. Reminds me in a way to steiglitz photos of snow on 5th Ave. A little stretch....but a nice capture.

Al,

I think I am about to commit Hari Kari. I have seen this shot since the first day I logged on to Usefilm.com Quite frankly, I just don't get it. Man you have some great shots. I do not know what it is that an old midwestern fireman like myself does not see that everyone else does. But I am glad we each have a different taste, Damn how boring it would be if we all were perfect like me LOL! Al, seriously, I mean no offense, I just do not get this shot. Maybe thats why your the editor, and I put out fires for a living, ya think?
Later my friend,

Russ

When I learned of the new 'top 100' pics, I thought of this image as my number one. However when I found it in the Editor's choice section, I couldn't add it to my top 100, or comment on it again. So, I looked back to when I commented on it before, and found it that way. It seems that the comments section has been deleted from that particular area of the site. Was this done intentionally? By the way, Al, some great ideas lately.

I bought this image from the Usefilm Fineart store and it's incredible and it supports the site.

I thought that this was one of my favourites on usefilm. The more I look at it though, the more I see further potential for improvement. I would have liked to have seen the main subject slightly less blurred. Who am I kidding? This is a great photo, full stop!

Dave Holland Dave Holland   {K:13074} 1/16/2002
Al, this is one of my favorite images on this site. I really don't know why.... Maybe because it uses a technique I have never tried, maybe because it evokes an impressionist feeling of reality. This image reminds me of what I see when I dream.

Altaf, Yes! Yes! I see what you mean about not always wanting a crisp clear picture. Unfortunately the idea in the shot I took "Fishing at Sunset" wasn't suppose to be blurred. I've taken some pictures of hockey games where I purposely blurred the surroundings in order to indicate movement of a particular player but I'm not happy with any of the attempts. This shot is wonderful! I'll keep trying.

This image really grows on me everytime I see it. It has a superb amount of dynamic motion and tension. Obviously this comes in large part from the motion blur but the composition and splashes of color really help the effect. Terrific.
