Brilliant perspective and of course I love your processing.
Those chairs look like they are very well-behaved. :)
this point of view emphasises the feeling of space.
Excellent point of view!! Voted.
Perfect depth and composition,outstanding light and colors
the cross processing is great - did I mention this?
Awesome shot!!! Love the perspective, the colors, the light, the mood! Vote!
Jolie photo. Bientôt 10 ans, tout a changé, et rien n'a changé à d'autres points de vue. Excellent, ceci dit, ton point de vue.
Quelque chose peut-il changer ?
Cool POV, and excellent exposure! Thanks for the link!
Great shot,great idea,great metering !!!
I adore the POV and atmosphere too JD! How deep did you go to catch this ?!
(One of the "children" of revolution of 1968 is still active and well known in my hometown Frankfurt and he has his domicil here - Daniel Cohn Bendit!)

Love the PoV and the sparse lighting. Exposure is excellent to bring out the reflections, shadows, and light play. Cheers sir!
An excellent scene with a great angle. Wonderful lighting. \/
yeah, fantastic pov and mood, Jean *****
Ahh..the 60's with more students in the streets than in the classrooms. Very nice perspective and light.
Belle atmosphere JD, V.
wonderful image. the lonesome figure at the far end almost dissolves in the enormous open space...fantastic pov, wonderful shot! v
Phenomenal image JD. Great usage of the 10mm lenses. Love the contrast in light and the reflections and lets not forget the warm passionate reds. V
Excellent! All you need now are students :-)
well, yes. I did not need the wikipedia for this one - suggestive, indeed - interesting to see how much heart you put in (virtually) every image - it shows and it adds to the subject every time -
Very cool image, JD ... after reading your link, it's like we are looking at 'ground zero' the place where the event of May '68 all began.
Here is a fitting slogan from the Wikipedia site:
Pouvoir à l'Imagination
Power to the Imagination.
Vraiment bien vue de vette angle et la solitude!
Great angle, light, composition.
This is an exceptional photo, JD, on many levels. As a remembrance of May 1968, but also visually. Your point of view gives it a sense of timelessness with the lone human figure in the distance symbolizing isolation and alienation. Powerful work.
Excellent perspective. These red chairs are very interesting element in composition. Makes eye jups from one to another finally landing on the figure at the end. Great shot.
Great light and colors!
Love the way you got right down, shows the emptiness from ground level up.
Very interesting link!
I marvel. V
Lloyd & Sandy Spitalnik
So well done JD. S&L
I love it when you crawl around on the floor and take shots! This is a great perspective! I'll check out the others!
All too familiar, library study or student union?
Remember those days. Great shot and perspective. The chairs look like way back from the sixties too.
The angle has emphasized the emptyness. Red, black and yellow help to emphasize the defiance too. Great idea and very well shot.
on dirait presque une piste de bowling... superbe! v
belle perspective, couleurs et lumière! V.
excellent work, light, compo.
I like your interpretation of the May 1968 events. The linear structure of the image tries to defy the impact of the lack of students. In the late 60's here in the US, we got so used to nightly news flashes of student activism, but it alway leaned towards the radical and more violent episodes. This goes to show, a soft voice can be just as effectively heard when used with reason.
tres belle couleurs & composition

Well represented. Thanks for the history!
great perspective & lighting!!
Lines and repeated shapes/colours drew me along the length of the classroom to the figure there at the end, raising some questions....what are they doing there with no-one else around?!!!
A repeat in May 2008 perhaps?
Are you leading the strike?
superbe lumiére et couleurs!
