Dear Street Photography afficionados,
We at the The-Yard-Collective are happy to introduce you our new gallery: The LightHouse!
Every month a group of three of our moderators, DougNZ, MARX77 and kingmouf will pick a number of notable photos from Yard's galleries and propose them to all moderators. After a voting process, the top three photos will be featured in the LightHouse Gallery.
After the selection process, we will present those photos with a comment from the gallery's curators.
So 'nough with the talking and let's present you the first.. four... selections for the gallery! A tie in the voting process forced us to accept more photos this time. The photos will be presented in no particular order.

DougNZ : " Superb observation skills and timing to get this one! The colour and the exposure for highlights make this a stand out shot."
: " This photo speaks to me of the loneliness of the city. All the people are in their own little worlds, together but alone. The isolated hand and head add greatly to the scene, where is the reflected woman going, what is she thinking?"MARX77
: "Now this is the image which I believe, the legendary science fiction novelist, Philip K. Dick must've imagined as he wrote his masterpiece novel, 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?'.
I look at this and I can't help but think of that amazing Ridley Scott directed, 1982 neo-noir film, Blade Runner, which was also loosely based on the novel.
Funny how a mere reflection on a window can turn an ordinary shot into an extraordinary one. Props to the immensly talented photographer!"kingmouf
: "Good photographs for me have a strong element of time
. It has nothing to do with the time the shutter is released. No. It has to do with the time it manages to capture one's attention. That is why I generally like more complicated images, images that choose to subtract
rather than add everything and provide an easy solution to the viewer. The art of non-obvious.
When I first looked at this photo, it kinda puzzled me and I thought that it was something of a double-exposure or whatever digital equivalent. However, the positioning of the different elements in the photo made me look and look and look again till I realized it was a reflection. I had
to solve the puzzle! The photo was already a winner. How brilliantly the photographer managed to see and capture this wonderful juxtaposition between the element of the real world and the one reflected! It's like a divine intervention, a secret communication between those two women. Excellent!!
Please respect me and my work. My photos and words are not for stealing. Please send me a note if you want to use my work. And after using, link back to the original. Thank you for understanding.
