Prague Wencelas Square No I by RaMiBru Prague Wencelas Square No I by RaMiBru
prague wenzels square in december 1989: revolution was going to happen. everybody in the socialistic czechoslovakian republic remembered the prague spring in 1968 when russian tanks attacked the people and this revolution failed.
in 1989 everything happened almost peacefully. hundred of thousands people were demonstrating on wenzels square again shouting for alexander dubcek as their new leader.

analoge picture taken with leica m-6 and summicron 50mm. full frame.

uncountable thanks to rhapsouldize and ghouldaddy for suggestion and featuring the pic for dd.

prague wenzels square dec 1989 by ~RaMiBru is by far one of my fav images since I've been on dA. The power it conveys echoes through out the image. ( Suggested by rhapsouldize and Featured by Ghouldaddy )

Ich habe aufgehört zu zählen, wie oft ich mir dieses bild schon angesehen habe. Aber eins ist gewiss. Kaum eine andere Photographie hat mich je so beeindruckt. Es ist ein Jahrhundertbild. Ein Meisterwerk.

hey, das bild ist gut, okay!

aber es kommt ja nicht mal ansatzweise an marc riboud ran ([link]).
übertreib jetzt einfach mal nicht...

dennoch werde ich im stillen rot und denke mir insgeheim: an dem prag-bild bild muss was dran sein...

DANKE!

Ich finde nicht dass sich das bild mit ribouds vergleichen lassen muss. Es sind ganz unterschiedliche stimmungen.

Deins hat eine Kraft, die dem von riboud fehlt. Dafuer hat selbiges eine zeitlose poetische wirkung.

Dennoch, wenn ich mich fuer eins der beiden bilder fuer ein editorial entscheiden muesste, du bekaemest den zuschlag. :)

Amazing. Captures the sheer and honest emotion of the group, yet also gives hints as to its location. Beautiful composition.

In 1968 not only Russian army attacked czecho-slovakia. There were also Hungarian, Polish, Bulgarian, and also army of German Democratic Republic (known as East Germany).

When I read ';Prague' I thought it might have been taken in 2000. There were similar scenes then when Prague hosted the meetings of the World Bank and the much despised IMF.

Anyway great shot.
