What a great image. The composition (all that dark space waiting for action on the left) give it real impact. V.

Excellent candid! Wei's comment is spot on!

This is GREAT, kent. Really great. I am curious.... have you tried cropping the right hand side to the brown column? I would be curious to see how it would look without all the brightness on that side.

Superb ! Outstanding compo and great subject!
natisunber05-Oct-2008 15:09
Love the composition as well as the fact the image can be read by itself
with that man making a pause at its book-station, waiting the train of life to another step
and who is so deeply in the story that he give life to it, with that character on the orange line who can personify the hero of the book!
Enny05-Oct-2008 09:34
excellent compo, light.
David Royall05-Oct-2008 08:48
Cool, calm and collected. I'll bet he didn't even look up when he felt the air swoosh by him as the train rushed into the station.
Francisco Figueras05-Oct-2008 08:45
