Critiques [Translate]

Hello (again) Edwin,
Amazing that this photo did not get any comment yet. I only see one reason: i.e. because you're not a frequent critiquer yourself. Yes, that's part of the game on TL, but it won't prevent me from critiquing this picture, because I think it deserves feedback.
Like for your "junk sofa"-photo, you managed to "transcend" the theme you photographed. This is not just "your friend" having a shower, this is "man" having a shower. The pose, the look in your model's eyes, the way you captured the falling water, the light, etc.. all these feature make that this is not an anecdotic scene. As if we were looking at the first "human being" ever who has thought of taking a shower, who is appreciating it in an almost metaphysical way and who will, later on, share his invention with Mankind. And after many thousands of years, we are still feeling thankful because we owe him so much! ;o)
Just my (strange?) thoughts about your picture. Hope they make sens ;o).
TFS & kind regards,

I agree with Erik.. - it's really strange that noone commented this photo before!!
This picture is very specific with a unique atmosphere and idea. It's one of the greatests for me :)
