Wow this is an amazing shot. Sure, the black and white and the contrast work great together in this piece, but you managaed to get the projectile behind the dark walking signal, making it visible where otherwise impossible.

Great job, untouchable.

Tu t'es fait plaisir, là ^^
On sent que le 300D répond bien en définition, la netteté est vraiment parfaite.

Sinon, esthétiquement l'angle est peut-être un peu décevant masi je t'accorde qu'avec tout ce bordel ça devait pas être facile.

A.S.

je me demandais où se trouvaient les photographes des manifestations... Je ne suis pas la seule !
Très jolis clichés en tout cas... Je ne peux m'empêcher de sourire en remarquant le nombre de photographes sur cette photo ...

the thing what freaks me out in these shots is that there are sooo many photographers!

how can riots break out, if there are so many people just snapping pictures?

great capture. prefer the first one though - that just has a surreal feel to it.

I like both shots, and they both show that media always shows the same pictures of the same place and same demonstrants, its not much of variety. I think its great that you captured that on this scene its actually more press then protesters.. Great work

yes everyone has said it already, but it kills me that there are soooo fucking many photogs around. it's like you guys are just holding these protest as one big photo op. a way for people to get some powerful shots for their books. crazy i tell you. crazy

good luck with the protests. i'm hopefull to see some good shots from you. and yes, i imagine it is very hard to get anything very good.

you're a bit right
but i'm not gonna avoid tomorrow's demonstrations because it could be seen as an easy way to take powerful shots. for one, it's not that easy, because the bar is higher, for a demonstration shot to be considered as really good...
and i want to take some shots. i want to use my 50mm 1.8 against other photojournalists' wide angles f11 :P i want to see what i can do with a demonstration material.

anyway. :)

There are AFP/AP/Reuters people, but also a lot of amateur photographers, it's true. I think that there more bloggers and protesters than freelance photogs.

This is an incredibly active photograph.
The things that really interested me were the photographers mixed up among them, and the people just watching in the background. Great work!

nice shot, I like the choas. and there seems like there's loads and loads of photographers there, more than the students at the moment!
are the riots still going on??

The demonstration was over for nearly one hour. The ones remaining were those wanting a fight with the police., and the photographers ;)

There was a few thousand demonstrators, but a dozen meters behind. Tear gas is not fun to breathe, so most normal people stay far away.. I admit that there are a *lot* of photographers. A lot of demonstrators with DSLRs too. I wasn't a demonstrator though.
