[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an image I took recently on an evening in Quincy, MA. It's at the Red Line's T-station (subway in Boston).

The texture of the walls, the perspective and the 'alone-ness' of the man walking the yellow line got me to make this shot.

I intentionally left an empty foreground... to make the person in the pic even more 'alone'.

Postprocessed (including some noise-reduction) and resized in Nikon Capture 4.4

too much foreground which flattened where the train would be creating an almost wall like effect where the tracks would be. The comparative flat angle to the tracks also caused this. I would hav emoved down and shot more abeam of the the man and gotten closer the tracks are too far back flat

Cuadre bien logrado enfatizando el juego de líneas, provocando una excelente conjunto de líneas diagonales que dan movimiento a la escena.
El personaje se pierde en el color oscuro del fondo y falta de definición del mismo hace que se pierda algo del mensaje.
Buen intento, saludos.
