Just a few more steps in this stairs to the fresh light of a new year, and to an (always) refreshed hope to those that believe in the mankind.

Hi Jose,

very well done.
Michel ...*Happy New Year 2010*

hi Jose,

i like this photo because of the composition and the dramatic light; also, i think that choosing b&w is the right thing to do here.

Um ar "abstrato", mas muito bem composto!
Uma apresentação significativa para o novo ano que vai começar ! Parabéns, José!
Muita "LUZ" e saúde em 2010!
Um abraço,

Now this is a very simple comp, very minimalistic and very packed with letting the viewer decide how they feel about the shot! Really love the soft light and it really has a scary ghostly feel to it Jose, which brings up EMOTION! I think this is grand! Happy New Year!

Hi Jose,
What I like in this picture is the sweet shade of the light where the B/W works good. The great perspective effect lead us in the full light softly. A nice symbol for an year where each day is a step.
Thanks to share your work. A very nice year to you.
Best regards

Hi Jose..nice interesting shot...well composed..nice light...great idea.


Bom dia José, ou, melhor, pergunto com Carlos Drumond de Andrade, e agora José? É assim que você vê 2010?
Bela metáfora e foto excelente.
Feliz 2010 e que você continue por aqui nos ensinando a grandeza da simplicidade.

This picture is also a typical 1980s ""No future""picture;]].
The B&W fits very well here,I would call it The steps to the unexpected.

STAy in good health my friend.


Hello Jose,
Great minimalism and game of light...Again, a master photography

Amazing, Jose, how the play of light reinforces the (already strong) composition of this photo. An example of how powerful minimalism can be.
TFS & kind regards,
