A picture can paint a thousand words, and to me this one says so much. The concept is very strong and you can feel the emotions in this immage. I feel as though I am looking in with the young girl, a very thought provoking piece with so many levelles. Do you percieve it as one who has been cheeted on, or one who is in love with but unable to reach and show their feelings for the young man inside, I like the fact that the windows are not clean so the vision of the couple is unclear, the picture doesn't show the couple as concted there fore leaving us with another thought, could the two inside be no more than freinds or relatives? You can sense the need, and desire to go inside and convey feelings from the young girl looking in but there is the impending fear too that it may be a mistake. An incredibly open but deep running picture that tells more than one story depending on who is interpreting it. A great technique, Deffinitely origional,, And the impact in this is brilliant because of how it makes me think Visual indepth
Actually, I kind of disagree with the critique on this work. Yes, it's a beautiful photo (that's why I favorited it), but it doesn't convey the feeling of heartbreak. The girl is too sexualized for that to work -- her pose is not of someone who feels left out, it's a pose of a model, doing her job. Plus the foggy windows give the impression that it's cold outside -- why is she wearing a summer dress? The people inside look more dressed than she is.
I like the idea behind it, and the composition of this photo is very good, but it doesn't incite emotion or empathy in me. Basically because the girl is not acting the part (and perhaps the costume design is an issue too).
