Our high school ran a program on Arab Israeli Peace initiatives, and I brought along my 50 f/1.4 and D700. When this gentleman got up to speak, I just had to capture the image. 1/80 at 1.4 and iso 1250.
I'm really surprised when poor and marginal 'pj' shots get lots of comments and really good shots like this get essentially ignored.
I agree that some photos in this part of the forum clearly don't belong in the photojournalism category and that the term is used a bit loosely but that's why there's also the Candids and Street Photography categories, though it's arguable that some fit nowhere. :wink:
Yet, as good as this particular photo may or may not technically be, photojournalistically-wise it doesn't really mean or tell anything. Without a caption/title you wouldn't even know what it was about; just a random man talking to who knows who in a rather empty auditorium.
