The End of a Love by OttoMarzo The End of a Love by OttoMarzo
I was sitting in a cafe in Piata Unirii, Timisoara, on July 25th 2012, when I saw this guy breaking up with her lover, 70-75 metres away from me. I mounted my Sigma 300mm and... this is their last pictures together, their last embrace, the end of a love.

The whole sequence here: [link]

While, from what I understand concerning the actual event, both were breaking up, I am critiquing this photo itself, so I will critique the intent, in so much as I see it as well.

The obvious disparity between the crying woman and stoic male is a interesting contrast and the most visually catching piece of information. While one hand goes to comfort her, the other hangs limp as if he already knew what were to happen that day and is simply going through the motions.

Regardless, while I like the colors of the photo, their warmth and chill seem maybe too "romanticized" for this photo. If her face of anguish were not seen, obscured by his hand or shoulder, I would be perplexed by the title as if has a more"Beautiful Italy" feel. However, the colder hues works well with her face to highlight her sorrow, so it might just be an American looking in, than any fair critique.

The motion, the smaller depth of focus all center the attention on the couple, a smart move. Nothing new maybe, but it shows a quick mind and a grasp of the factors that worked together in this photo.

There is sadness and I can definitely feel it. While I am not quick to applaud a somber moment, I will happily congratulate a successful capture of true emotion.

A parte questo, ripeto, foto molto bella e vedo che le persone apprezzano!!

No but I know that the society hates those photographs who show them things that aren't happy and bright, good world. I remember a photograph who showed them photos of wounded soldiers, hurted children and so on, and there were mostly people who disliked his photos and him.
And I think if you would go to the street and have a clash with someone , you would be really angry when you see it next week in internet on a page , where thousands of people sees you in a bad situation. Fact is that I know about the rules in other countries and that's not forbidden to make photos without permission from others, but in an ethical way it's not good I think.

in 2012, if you dont wnt your clash to be on the internet, you need to have it privately

about photojournalism, it's loved worldwide, if some people dislike it, their bad :)

Ok, sto ascoltando ( Port Royal - Susy: Blue East Fading ) ... e capito su questa foto.
Pum.
Botta di tristume.
Complimenti per la "prontezza" nel cogliere lo scatto. Parzialmente concordo con :iconfaderillaz:, è un momento privato (sebbene in pubblico) che non credo gradirei nel vedere esposto su Internet.

Ma non è forse l'emozione nelle foto, che andiamo tutti cercando? :)
Rinnovo, bel lavoro.

Le foto sono belle ma trovo ingiusto che hai fotografato e sparso ai 4 venti una cosa così personale. Magari non vedrai mai queste persone e loro non vedranno mai queste foto, ma se fossi io al posto della ragazza mi sentirei offesa. é solo un'opinione personale.

:iconottomarzo:
OttoMarzo Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012
beh, se non vuoi essere guardata e, nel 2012 fotografata, certe discussioni le fai in privato. E' fotogiornalismo, non penso facciate commenti del genere quando vedete foto di gente disperata dopo uno tsunami, un terremoto, un incendio, un tornado o foto di bambini che muoiono di fame etc, no? La disperazione è privata, finché la tieni privata

credo che tu confondi il fotogiornalismo col fotoromanzo: hai fotografato e postato l'intera sequenza quando bastava questa sola foto. Riprendo quello che hai giustamente detto tu e lo estendo anche a te: il fatto che pubblichi le tue foto in una gallery con il libero commento, ti espone al rischio di commenti negativi, e sinceramente quando leggo altri commenti tipo "le tue foto sono bellissime non dar retta alla "signorina" (come se fossi una che ti ha offeso mortalmente) qui sotto" lo trovo disgregante per la tua crescita professionale.

Innanzitutto, fatti i cazzi tuoi che alla mia crescita professionale ci penso da solo, tu pensa ai tuoi disegnini.
La tua ignoranza prevarica qualsiasi confine quando asserisci che confondo il fotoromanzo con il fotogiornalismo. Il fotoromanzo è in posa e racconta, anche con didascalie e vignette, una storia per mezzo di attori. Il fotogiornalismo è fotografare un evento, spesso in luoghi pubblici, ed è quello che ho fatto.
Sono disponibilissimo e accetto critiche negative di tutti i tipi, ma non da parte di ragazzine ignoranti.

Hai ragione scusa, mi sono davvero espressa male e sono stata maleducata. In fondo come giustamente dici non sono nemmeno affari miei. Chiedo scusa a te e a tutti i tuoi commentatori.
Se vuoi puoi anche cancellare tutto l'intero post visto che è inadeguato. Mi spiace che mi hai bloccato il mio altro account precludendomi la possibilità di risponderti come avrei voluto fare. Ho usato questo altro account, giuro che non ti disturbo più. (adesso penserai che sono svitata, in realtà credo di aver capito che sono stata mooolto maleducata e spero accetterai le mie scuse perché sono sincere)
