The guy with the cat was my favourite, but they're all pretty humdrum really. Any one of yours ought to wipe the floor with them.

Once again muted Colour seems popular (although I quite like the tonal range in the winning image)

 ::) :o :D Aah. Chuck in a bit of nudity for slot two; always popular and pleasing for a demanding audience  :2funny:

Like snoring, a bit repetitive  :(

Most of those, if I had taken them, I'd probably have deleted. No wonder I'll never be a great photographer!

Good stuff Alan, the only problem for Andy and I is that street photography is now illegal in France (if there are any 'identifiable' people in the picture). Mind you, I'm prepared to wing it most of the time . . .

What? Hows that work then?

I mean, you go to the beach and take pictures of your kids (Say) and someone else is in the background? Or even the street? Madness.

There is no problem taking photographs in public areas for private use. However, if you are publishing them on the Internet etc., other's privacy must be considered.

I have just done a job for a London Real Estate Company who are selling a Shopping Centre in Preston. I was asked to supply over 100 pictures of the Shopping Centre and surrounding area with plenty of people shots. So how do they sell commercial property in France ?

There are exemptions (journalism, fair comment, the picture being of a scene that might incidentally have people in it); depends how good your lawyer is. Also, lots of people don't give a monkeys. The law was introduced by politicians for the benefit of politicians and dressed up as being for the general good. Oh, and just asking someone if it OK if their picture is published is not good enough - it has to be in writing and in a standard format. Cartier-Bresson would be in jail by now.

That said I was on one occasion contacted by a relative of someone I had posted a picture of on Flickr. The old gentleman had passed away a few months after I took his picture and his grand daughter wanted a print because it was the last known picture of him. I was, of course, happy to oblige. The thing is, if I was a law abiding citizen she would never have had that memory. I have read in one of the numerous photo magazines here that it is generally considered that if a request to remove an image is honoured then that would be the end of it.

As far as I know the law has never been tested on internet publishing on servers located overseas.

As I understand it, crowded street scenes are acceptable as long as no specific person can be identified; which effectively means identifiable beyond doubt (ie. it is a question upon the picture clarity of the people in view). If a person can be clearly identified in a shot then their right to Privacy has to be considered and the tog should seek written permission before publishing the image any public media. As Howard says the exemptions do exist for press togs etc..

As a foot note toward caution - Legal aid is available; So if a UK resident (while they are on holiday) takes a shot of a vulnerable person on the street in Paris (that exploits that persons predicament) and posts said shot on the Internet (in public domain) they could find themselves in very hot water.

Just been reading up on the legal codes (seems to change every time I look at it), it now seems that you can publish pictures of people who are participating in a demonstration or parade, and those two are the only exceptions. For journalist images of people engaged in their public life only may be published. You can even pursue people through the courts for taking pictures of your house. It is very restrictive indeed; the fine is €45,000 and one year in jail.

I am still trying to find some case history involving non journalists; given the popularity of both tourism and sites like Facebook I can't really see how this law has any realistic prospect of being enforced in practice.
