Hi roald,

The square frame works with this semi-abstract composition where the handrails and shadows are main characters (with permission from the 2 guys).

These guys help us understand where we are and give scale to the image.

I guess you did some pp work to improve the green stone quality but IMO the guys´visages are oversaturated and too bright, no midtones or hues at all.

This here is a nearly geometrical composition with nice diagonal lines, It is the advantage of this photo, well seen

Nice shot and great composition Roald, well observed, great colours and pin sharp. Best wishes

Very interesting and intriguing shot...Love the framing/presentation here. Great details, lighting, and colors.


Nice use of the steps to create the diagonal shape and the shadows caused by the lighting add to the image.

Hi Ro...
Happy New Year...
Beautiful shot with so nice scene...
Beautiful composition...

Hi Row,
Great square presentation with great play with the light and shadow and lines.
The placement of those two men really works here.
Well done.

This photo is a proof that simplest compositions work best! Perfect timing - people in the right place at the right time. The lines, the light! Very good photo.

Hi Ro
Excellent Photo; very well composed with the lines crossing the frame, a very good light and sharpness.I would prefer it in b/w (as I think you know) but in colour is a great photo also.
Best regards, mb

Hi Ro,
Neat shot, I like the diagonals..:) Nicely seen and photographed. TFS
