I had a great time yesterday exchanging image critiques from a distance with my good friend, Jacques Gudé — I live in the Boston area, he lives in Berlin. After drooling in jealousy over a couple of his amazing urbex shots from Kaserne Krampnitz, Jacques asked me to pick his post for the day.
I trembled at the challenge. Not since my High School SAT exam had I felt that much pressure. Both images he considered publishing yesterday were winners. It was like asking me to pick between Mary Ann or Ginger from Gilligan’s Island. Both very sexy, each with its own special something 🙂
(I chose this one).
I turned the table on him and asked him to choose my image for today. He picked, this BW conversion of an HDR image shot at the Malden Mills Saturday. If you like it, thank you! If you don’t, its all Jacques’ fault.
You may know Jacques as Fotofreq on Twitter. He’s a good friend, great guy and a very strong influence on my work. If you don’t know him and his work, I highly recommend you leave this site now (after bookmarking it and promising yourself you will return daily, and subscribing to the RSS feed, of course) and check out his amazing work at www.jacquesgude.com. I promise his will be the second best image you see all day. (I’m kidding, Jacques)
