Daily Deviation

Given 2009-05-19
"There's loads of emotion in The Tverskaya Girl by *enikOne You can see tears almost welling up in the girl's eyes. The picture is also pin sharp, and the lighting is great. I really like how you can see the man in the background looking on as if she's out of place." - words by suggester

This is really a great picture! Military parades are always big happenings where people celebrate their victory or something else. But you always have to look behind the scene; it's all war related. Many many people have been killed in the 2nd worldwar. And being surrounded by all the happiness this fact can easily be forgotten. On the left of this picture you can see the highly decorated military functionaries standing for their victory and finally for war. And to the right, you see this child in a soldier outfit in who's eyes i think i can see all the fear, pain and depression of the war itself. That makes the picture so impressive. Also on the technical side everything's well chosen; the depth of field pulls the child in the foreground out of the rest of the scene. That isolates all the impressions described above. Well done, just awesome!

This is definitely a piece that is worthy of framing and putting up on my wall, even in a museum perhaps. Emotion is bleeding from the edges of this photo and from the girl's eyes. With the vast array of color and a washed-out look combined give it a different element that hints at feelings not so joyful. There are many militarial-based images out there that give contrast and this one joins the masses. I would greatly enjoy seeing more shots from this event if there are any. Keep up the good work and keep the emotion fresh and flowing.

wow... this piece is incredibly powerful. when i first saw it (without reading the description) i immediately thought "child soldier". i know she's not now, but her face is just so serious, like she has seen too much war and had too many life experiences. this shot combines the innocence of childhood with the harshness of reality. just breathtaking... you wouldn't mind if i wrote poem about this, would you?

In comments i've read many quastion about who is this girl, does she soldier, what she represent and etc.
No, she is not a soldier ofcouse, and uniform she wear was used during WW2. It's like a flashback. Behind her we can see a real veterans of this war, and they were in her age than were fighting and it's realy frightening and then we are looking at this small brave girl we should understand how awfull the war is and do our best for not repeat it and we should remember it forever!
Thank you for this great shot! You managed to cought ideal moment, absolutely great composition! And i kindly ask you to read a Boris Vasiliev's book....emm i don't realy know english name of this book (if it exist) in russian it names "A zori zdes' tihie"("And the daybreaks here are silent" - something like this i hope) if you find it you'll understand whom this girl personify

Love this shot, the fire is definitely in the girl's heart whereas the veterans don't necessarily have any less - since they were likely there. They're just trading war stories, happy that many are around for the day's parade.

Incredible shot. You are adept at capturing a visual contrast, not in light and dark, but in an older generation, and a newer generation, both seemingly instilled with patriotism. I love this.
