Friendship - 2 by BenHeine Friendship - 2 by BenHeine

Harmony in perfect duos never ends. It's precious.
This is a photo I recently took while I was walking in
the streets of Sousse, in Tunisia. These two boys just
came at the good moment.

The first thing I see is excellent depth of field use. The composition is strong with emphasis on the subject and the very positive expressions. The second thing that struck me is how this is a wonderful example of a decisive moment. Much as how Bresson captured everyday life in his work revealed this same type of photography. The boys faces are perfectly lit and the expressions are great. The hand gestures as well were perfectly timed. It leaves me with the feeling that any other moment would not have produced the same result. Also the couple in the background, out of focus and backlit, play beautufully against the subject, balancing the composition and adding to the positive effect of the picture. A subtle and warm photography with great thought and effective technique. I see no reason for less than five stars in every way.
What do you think?

The first thing that caught my eye were the two boys in the front, of course. But then I studied the image a bit more and realized that the two in the back are also exhibiting characteristics of friendship. I hadn't read your comment yet where you say "duos" so I didn't look for it as I was looking over the piece.

I think the depth of field contributes to the subtlety of the couple in the background and makes the title that much more profound.

It is a really expressive shot =) But somehow in the first moment I had to think of the book 'the kite runner' by Khaled Hosseini, which makes it somehow sad for me... nevertheless, amazing moment, perfect composition =D
