seriously good Sharon. the bars act like barriers in his sunken heart. great emotion here
18 Feb 2009 5:27am
very strong picture...it's sad and well, it's not so evident that it's a broken hart, but at least a great sadness.The feeling is given by the bars, excellent picture
18 Feb 2009 5:34am
@10Fraction: Thank you. True! I really have no idea why this man is sad...but I do like to create little scenarios of the people that I shoot :)
A beautiful strong image.
18 Feb 2009 5:36am
Nice capture of a man.
18 Feb 2009 5:38am
Very poignant image. The bars and the b&w really add to the symbolism :)
18 Feb 2009 5:42am

18 Feb 2009 6:02am

The perfect quote for a perfect image!

I like very much the composition Sharon
18 Feb 2009 6:37am
Really emotional picture, sperb composition. Well done!
18 Feb 2009 6:59am
You do excellent street shots. Really well captured.
18 Feb 2009 7:20am
the sadness is palpable and the bars look like a prison, even tho he's on the outside
18 Feb 2009 7:21am
Well said the shot is another example of a great SILO shot !!
18 Feb 2009 7:52am
Sometimes life breaks us and it is exactly this image, we are broken apart from the life of these bars! Beautiful poignant evocation!
18 Feb 2009 8:21am
These silhouettes are perfect. And the off-center taking I like. The grates and the position of the subject contribute all a history to this photography.
18 Feb 2009 9:01am
Beautifully captured mood and great composition. Like in everyday life, sad feelings have to be put behind bars and locked away, in order to get on with your life... "It's smile time"...
18 Feb 2009 9:09am
This guy may just be reading a book or the newspaper but coupled with the railings and the dark atmosphere it surely does present the viewer with a feeling of unhappiness
18 Feb 2009 9:20am
The scenario you created here is very strong, indeed. Straight out of a great movie, romantic one, and I'm sure his sweetie will be back... Love the mood, so realistic !
18 Feb 2009 9:21am
Nice graphic B/W.
Have a nice day.
18 Feb 2009 9:34am
oh ! what can I say ? jast ........ ohhhhhh !
18 Feb 2009 10:15am
So cool !! Love the story and the silhouette of a lonely man deep in thought. The lines and contrast are excellent Sharon.
18 Feb 2009 10:54am
Can't help but see a man contemplating a life locked away from something important.
Very nice composition.
18 Feb 2009 10:58am
Very strong image!!! Beautiful graphic B&W!
18 Feb 2009 11:08am
Very strong shot. Impressive story feeling.
18 Feb 2009 11:12am
pore man alone !
18 Feb 2009 11:40am
a sad feeling but great shot, well captured !
18 Feb 2009 11:50am
A picture in high emotion. I have the impression that this man is a prisoner of his misfortune. Good catch!
18 Feb 2009 12:52pm
Powerful and compelling photo. Nice work.
18 Feb 2009 1:32pm
this is very touching, it reaches my heart, bravo, well taken and named!!
18 Feb 2009 1:35pm
why this man has a broken heart? We do not know, but you create the scenario based on a picture, and imagine a story. The shape, position, scratches cross the barrier by the electric wire, the strong contrasts and this man sitting on the bench, his face looked. Like EWS, you could write a story. It is a strong picture, filled with emotions. Bravo.
18 Feb 2009 1:54pm
Great emotion in this. even without the title you can feel the sense of solitude.
18 Feb 2009 2:08pm
Interesting shot, cool silhouettes
18 Feb 2009 2:13pm
Quelle bien triste vision que cette personne qui a l'air affligé. Cette photo reste néanmoins superbe. Le noir et blanc et les barreaux donnent encore plus d'émotions.
18 Feb 2009 2:28pm
looks so sad, and b&w makes that obviously
18 Feb 2009 2:54pm
No doubt this is an excellent shot. But I live the human touch here. The quote is just making it even more touchy.
18 Feb 2009 2:57pm
Great perspective and wonderful feel, Sharon.
18 Feb 2009 3:15pm
Feel sorry for him ... strong photo, even more because of the B&W and the bars!
18 Feb 2009 3:35pm
The picture tells the story in which you have written. Wonderful image.
18 Feb 2009 3:46pm
very strong and poignant b&w. great quote as well. awesome!
18 Feb 2009 4:02pm
Total dejection is pictured here.
18 Feb 2009 4:09pm
un cliché qui en dit long, suivant les interprétations, mais qui se prête justement à en voir des milliers, très belle compo ^^
18 Feb 2009 5:24pm
Une émotion se dégage de cette photo!
Un sentiment d'enfermement et de solitude derrière ces barrières!
18 Feb 2009 6:12pm
Wow, what a strong image and meaningful quote!
18 Feb 2009 6:14pm
Superb, strong image.
18 Feb 2009 7:08pm
Very strong and powerful image - even before I looked at the title I felt the sadness - wonderful processing and work in B&W
18 Feb 2009 7:15pm
Beautiful and sensitive shot
18 Feb 2009 7:27pm
Congratulations, amazing done!
18 Feb 2009 7:52pm
Great composition and perfect title, bravo!
18 Feb 2009 9:55pm
Phenomenal composition! Perfect quote.

Well captured his body attitude. It says a lot.
18 Feb 2009 11:24pm
Nice contrast, silhouette. Perfect.
19 Feb 2009 12:18am
nice silhouette.........kind of a lonely image.
19 Feb 2009 1:54am
Perfect setting for this kind of image, the bars creating a locked away feel, while the shilouette gives the impression of sadness and despair... combined, they create a strong image.
19 Feb 2009 2:15am
Great composition and mood. Your title is really appropriate.
19 Feb 2009 3:01am
