STRIKING image, (*_*)

Hi Guy, he may be alone but quietly enjoying his cup of delicious beverage or quick noodle. Cheers and compliments on your photo technique!

Great use of the shadows and B&W. I like the long frame ´with the expanse of black. Great ´technique.

Regards

Gareth

Nice cut. Well placed. Good light. Wonderful!

Superbe image, Guy. Le format allongé fonctionne à merveille, bien accentué par la zone d'ombre. Du beau travail, différent de ce que tu nous présentes régulièrement. Bravo!

Marvellous image Guy, great use of portrait mode. Very atmospheric shot with nice control of exposure, nice to see detail in the shadows and the highlights. Terrific work. TFS

Salut,Guy! Belle image exprimant tres bien la solitude de cet homme! En voyant l'image,j'ai tout de suite pense au quartier chinois de Montreal ou l'on voit souvent cette passivite! Belle emotion capturee! Michel

Très belle capture, Guy, qui montre ta versatilité de photographe. J'aime beaucoup la composition en verticale et les zones noires dans le haut qui donnent un aspect très "moody" à cette photo. L'homme est très concentré sur son activité et semble perdu dans ses pensées. Bravo!

Dynamic tonal values are so effective it punches the picture to your face. Terrific B&W photo.

Hi Guy well seen first of all and then the b/w is superbly done. On peut presque resentir les emotions de ce monsieur qui mange tranquillement sans se soucier de qui le voit. Bravo!!!
Ros

Great framing and intensely dramatic with its tonal reange and light effect. An outstanding picture Guy - words cannot say beyond what it is communicating here.

C'est beau et triste. La solitude a l'étrange contradiction d'être recherchée et appréciée quand on y arrive. Mais quand elle est imposée, on voudrais la fuir dans un sourire, un simple contact, Et l'attente finis par devenir trop lourde... même pour épaules d'homme, qui ploierons sous le poids de l'espoir pas assez comblé. C'est ce que semble me dire ce cliché Et pourtant il n'et peut-être qu'assis en pause d'un ouvrage quelconque. J'aime bien ce cliché pour ce qu'il exprime! Bien pris!

beautiful b/w image Guy
i like the intense light infront of the man and dark shadow behind :)
great composition, from what i can make out on the sign, its somekind of office for a library?

I really like the lighting on this one Guy. It really isolates the subject and makes the most of the frame. Well done! B

Guy,

I like the way you used the shadows and b&w to focus on the old man. His age-heavy shoulders and white hair stress the loneliness that comes with age.

Very compassionate.

Compliments!

A perfect title for a great photograph. The composition is just right. I am glad you took it in black & white; I don't think colour would have communicated the mood as well. Thanks for sharing.

Very dramatic feel to this one Guy, well done.

A very dramatic picture, aptly titled. Very good use of lights. Good choice for B/W too. TFS

Excellent composition!
I like the blance between the light and black. It almost looks like the symbol of Ying & Yang!

Well done :)

Fantastic grain and tone. Great comp. Great light.

Really effective composition and lighting Guy. This photo says a lot, in a very powerful way.

Well done my friend
Edie

Hi Guy!
Perfect composition! b&w well accomplished and a spectacular portrait!
Without comments. Very, very good!
David

Hello Guy, this is surely a winner. Such brilliant composition and BW, this man is lost in his world.

The texture on the walls is very well rendered and the contrast well done.

Very well done. Have a great day. Yan

Great Image. The sense of nostalgia, betrayal and loneliness are evident

Hi Guy,
The solitude is a great problem in the modern societies.
Very well captured an composed.
Well done Guy.
All the best,
José

Bonjour Guy, je l'avais manqué. J'aime beaucoup ce genre de photo qui se concentre plus sur l'humain et moins sur le graphisme.
Guy

superbe! vraiment la lumière est fascinante! et la personne concentrée sur son verre, ne faisant attention a ta photographie, telle une star... bravo

Beautiful composition, the bright are fantastic, great photo, excellent work!
and many thanks for sharing!
