Walking With My Vanishing Shadow
Lens: Sigma 70mm Camera: ist-Dl 

Initially I was worried about the low light/noise performance limitation of the ist-Dl. But I actually ended up liking the effect of the noise on this picture. While I've taken more technically sound pictures since this still has a special place in my heart so here is my submission.

I agree - the noise makes this shot works ! Looks like captured on a long time ago expired film ! I think you have captured a wonderful moment and the photo has something from story telling.. So I am happily nominating this and wishing all the best !

I was told to add the background story to the photo so here it is. Photo was taken in montreal with a camera that was an accidental purchase. I was setting up my tripod to do a shot of the alley with long exposure. Once the shutter was open two of my friends walked into the shot and around that time the battery died. I had no idea how the shot came out until I took it into the computer (again, a bit of throwback to film era). When I mentioned to my friend that I'm entering the photo in a contest we were discussing how the photo actually represents their relationship quite well. She is the active one, always on the move, while he is steady. Two of my closest friend in an accidental shot taken with one of my first camera that helped me learn and love photography - couldn't think of a better picture to enter.
