PoW! 26th Week

That's a different sun over the sea right there!
In what planet this was shot, I definitely wonder.

Scream when you sing but not at the microphone.
What angst on that face and his locks fully grown!

Red downs black! Huddling in jubilation in victory!
But in defeat there is no shame, only short agony.

Here are this week's FPC's PoW!s, in no order of preference:

Editor's Comment: A very nice silhouette shot of a beach. What amazed me is the shape that came out from the sun that looks like a star. Very nice shot.

Editor's Comment: This is a beautifully executed shot by any means. Technically excellent, sharp where it shoud be, concert lights, the expression, composition, exposure. Pure energy!!

Editor's Comment: The photog says on the description: "You can guess which team won." And yes we can. The greatest captures are those that tell a story, as we know. This one by Richie Lazaro captures a whole drama depicting victory and defeat. But it also narrates that in defeat there is consolation, among team members. There must really be "agony" in defeat, but there is no shame in it when you play fair and with all you've got.

Wow, I'm speechless! :)

P.S. The star is totally natural - no filters or photoshop here. BTW, this picture was shot using the kit lens (18-55/3.5-5.6).

P.S.S. That was shot near the Krym peninsula, in the little town named Taman'
