    Fair enough, I certainly wouldn't claim to know the ins and outs of global copyright law.

    FWIW another UK-based photography forum I visit has decided not to post attachments but to link to websites when discussing other photographers' work, as certain agencies (e.g. Magnum) and photographers would not look kindly on directly reproduced images, without linking to and acknowledging the original source.

    Note that these aren't attachments though - they are, if you like, small windows to the original site (though still a grey area in many cases). Now, some people hate hot-linking, others love it - but that's another issue...!

    That said, copyright isn't an absolute. It allows a creator/photographer a limited monopoly on and control of their work. There are always exceptions - which need to be exercised or they will be lost. And although Fair Use/Fair Dealing is more limited than most think, discussion and critique of a single photograph imo falls within that.

His work has been so written and written about (& for a time I idolized GW so much) that I find it hard to look at it with fresh eyes (I think in his last years he had the same problem).
    I picked that one because it was early in his career and perhaps not as recognizable to many. Even though it goes against the grain of his later work I think it is one of his best. Certainly not his "signature style" of later years.

    I missed this the first go-round.

    Winogrand's photographs have a lot going on in them. What I like about them is that I can find new things in them every time I go back to them.

    My first thought is that this is a very bold composition and as such is very striking. My second thought is that the composition which the photographer has imposed on the scene, while strong, is entirely artificial and virtually makes it impossible to divine what is really going on. This second thought I would find intensely irritating if I were to put this picture on my wall. Nonetheless, a very good and thought-provoking posting!

    Regards,

    David
