well captured! Interesting shot
I like the colors!

Splendid captured,flashy red and superb composition bravo.

Great colours, great subject, a few notes might have been good though

Hi Alban,
Very nicely capturing a sleeping man [a homeless?] on bench. Hopefully, he is having a beautiful dream. Picture of urban life in many countries, not only in Austria.
Great picture.

I almost get a head rush at the brilliant colours Alban Q
Sad seen, very well brought across.
Nice image.

Good compo, hard image and message !
The colourful environment contrasts a lot with the poor and sad condition of the man on the bench.
Good job, Alban.

excellent Alban, I am tired to say this only word: excellent... and another word: a favorite... again... you continue to suprprise me again... and again... and again

and I am never tired of being surprised:)

Hello Alban, good street photo of this man.

Terrible to live such a life.

Great colours and well saturated. Love all the glued adds on the wall. Strange that the two benches side by side, one is relatively new and the other one very weathered.

Have a great day! Yan :)

Very well Done, the colours are fantastic.
His head looks very strange, cant make out fetures even when i zoom..Whats going on there? what did oyu do to it?

I like strong RED here, Stong contrast as well. Being half of a bench in the right side of the shot is a key here.

I love it.

very very great shot . and this colors beautiful.
thanks alba for this moment and emotional foto.


Brilliant, again ;)

love the bold colors here with the sleeping man as contrast :)
excellent street compositin alban :)
well seen


Auu! Ova fotka je odlicna. Odlican momenat. Jako mi se svidja, jake boje i klosar su super ukombinovani.

The first thing that caught my eyes was the second bench that is colorless in comparison to the other one ... and with that I thought how interesting it would be to place someone on that bench, not homeless, just to show the contrast, but that's just wishful thinking and would completely change the meaning of your photo.

The picture is powerful as is its message; however, the brightness of the background seems overpowering, I almost wish that it were a little less saturated, so we could place more focus on the person.


this title could not have been better Alban, so much can be said about your photo, excellent composition and matching saturation created this powerful image.. very well captured and presented..

Hi Alban!
Just wonderful... I never know what to write in your pics... they let me without words! This one is simply great!!!! I like the decadence atmosphere framed in a vibrant red!
I just have a doubt on the second bench...


Great colors... In the thumbnail, the sleeping guy looks suspended.


Another great one. The colors are vibrant and good contrast and sharpness too. The posters add nice graphic elements. So, is this a self portrait? :P
