    Extraordinary courtroom photograph

    I thought this little article in today’s British Guardian G2 was interesting. It impressed me as a great picture the first time I noticed it and I could see this gaining iconic status in the world of imagery. What do others think?

    It looks like he's on Judge Judy. Which he might as well be.

    I've been looking at this pic all day. I think it'll be one of the defining pictures of this saga in future. You'd want to be in this courtroom with a 35mm summilux asph, well I would anyway.

    This picture is what I would define as a Zen image.

    I wonder which part of the image "wasn't" Photoshopped? I'm suspecting the entire image was CGI. ;-) It would be easier than trying to find a parking spot near the courthouse.

    Oil painting? If anything perhaps a Photorealist painting in acrylic. I presume the image was exposed on film.

    Why do you think it was a film image?

    If editing has been done, leaving in the two bottles seems like an oversight....

    Such human suffering is portrayed in such images all the time and across the world. People never pay any attention to any of it unless the suffering involves money, power or a hot chick. Oh, wait...

    It would be interesting to see a shot of that courtroom without the people and defendant, just to determine how much photoshopping, if any, may have been done. However, that aside, it really is a good job, though the only "oil painting" I can recall offhand that looked like that was one showing a bunch of dogs playing poker...I think that was a painting!

    The writers description is overhyped.

    It merely looks like a courtroom that doesn't use fluorescent lighting but instead pot lights in the ceiling, which creates highlights and shadows which in turn creates drama.

    The writer appears to be getting last -supper-esque about it.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
