The composition is a stroke of genius. This is very beautiful.
4 Mar 2009 5:45am
I like the processing. It gives the shot a very mysterious story.
4 Mar 2009 5:46am
Very creative image. Super processing. Great...

Attendre... la seconde qui fera toute la différence....
Merveilleuse photo.... un cadrage que j'adore...
4 Mar 2009 6:05am
An image that seems like it's inside my mind.
4 Mar 2009 6:13am
I think this is a very deep meaning image, very suggestive. Good composition.
4 Mar 2009 6:38am
Wonderfull processing, ... this image has a story ... well done!
4 Mar 2009 6:50am
Very moving image!!
4 Mar 2009 7:01am
Those words hit right in the heart. Excellent angle and use of DOF.
4 Mar 2009 7:04am

I pause and do neither. best...jerry
4 Mar 2009 7:47am
And yet wandering about can be pleasant from time to time. Superb shot!

Feeling paralyzed, yes, it's awful, but sometimes important to stop & think or (better) feel before going ahead... Waiting is one profile, acting is the other one of that Life face. Love your compo & blur*
4 Mar 2009 8:20am
Fantastic! I like this detail in the ambiance intemporelle of the picture! Beautiful!
4 Mar 2009 8:57am
Love the feeling in your composition and the blur in background. very original framing, I take this hand and go for a little walk...
4 Mar 2009 9:24am
Beautiful capture, and great quote.
4 Mar 2009 9:52am
the wait is in the hand hanging along the body, in this vagueness that said the passage of time, in this frame diagonally. This is an image that speaks.
4 Mar 2009 10:28am
Again black and white a spectacular one, Insinuates more than it shows and it leaves open to the door to interpretations and valuations. Good photo.
4 Mar 2009 11:31am
extremely original pov
4 Mar 2009 12:17pm
I love the subtle hint of what you are looking at. Wonderful construct of the image.
4 Mar 2009 12:48pm
Wonderful composition and frame!
4 Mar 2009 12:52pm
audacious and beautiful compo! Nice text too :)
Very good! The hand could become a weapon, hold a tool, help someone, give a caress, your photo leaves all options open and makes us think, bravo, 5 stars!
ah, cool hand luke! leaves my mind wondering what he's up to! good one!
4 Mar 2009 1:10pm
The mere glimpse of this person really gives a sense of being there.. almost in the picture, part of the scene. Very well done and interesting.
4 Mar 2009 1:30pm
This is seriously well observed. Loneliness, despair are the feeling this leaves me with. Great work.
4 Mar 2009 1:55pm
Great control of focus. Makes you want to look and see who he is waiting for. Well done.
4 Mar 2009 2:22pm
être là au bon moment , toujours, sur les chemins du regard et de la vie ^^
4 Mar 2009 2:37pm
Perfect quotation for this image. Wonderful work.
4 Mar 2009 2:50pm
Poignant quote! Exquisite composition and processing to capture its inner meaning!
4 Mar 2009 3:08pm
So well focused. And a lovely quote which actually gives the meaning to the shot.
4 Mar 2009 3:11pm
A strong mood of melancholy and struggle has stunned me... Great catch!
4 Mar 2009 3:13pm
Nice framing in this one!
4 Mar 2009 3:30pm
I really enjoy the feel and look of this image.
4 Mar 2009 4:02pm
This composition has a really powerful message especially when paired with the quote.
4 Mar 2009 5:31pm
When waiting for someone or for something, everything else gets blurred.
4 Mar 2009 5:34pm
4 Mar 2009 5:36pm
Muchas de tus imágenes parecen intemporales. Si me dijeran que están sacadas de algún libro de fotografía clásica me lo creería. Un gran trabajo con una genial composición y una perfecta iluminación.
4 Mar 2009 5:42pm
Looks almost dangerous.
The title of the photo only intensifies that feeling.
4 Mar 2009 7:23pm
This is a really cool shot. Your titles always have a way of changing the way I look at your shots. Excellent.
4 Mar 2009 7:32pm
this is so minimalistic, but so good!
4 Mar 2009 7:42pm
Not knowing what to do????? I've been there. However, sometimes you just have to decide and take responsibility.
4 Mar 2009 9:05pm
nice emotional photo sharon! tests an individual's patience here!
4 Mar 2009 9:09pm
superb framing here...love the shallow DoF...
4 Mar 2009 10:16pm
great quote from a great author and story teller. I like the relaxed hand. hands fascinate me in art
4 Mar 2009 10:29pm
Pregnant with tension...
4 Mar 2009 11:50pm
Very cool. I need to get back into some street photography. If the guy were wearing any color except black this wouldn't have been as good. Great moment.
5 Mar 2009 1:07am
Wow...you hit home with me on this saying. Just lovely....the picture the words.
5 Mar 2009 4:04am
yes, it gives the feel of waiting. well done.
5 Mar 2009 4:11am
Love your photoblog!
5 Mar 2009 10:01am
Love the framing/point of view on this shot. Nicely done.
6 Mar 2009 1:18am
Nice, the hand makes us the person walking next to him... great atmosphere.
6 Mar 2009 2:49am
Wonderful and sad quote for this photo. Really like how you've composed this with the background blurred. One can't quite make out what's coming or going.
6 Mar 2009 3:47am
Everything shouldn't always be in focus. Knowing when it shouldn't be is the hard part.
9 Mar 2009 3:34am
what an inspiring and intriguing shot!
10 Mar 2009 8:19am
Only You can do that....
Sharon, I wish to establish a more constructive collaboration between us, I tried in the past, but I just see you once a month with 3 very interesting comments, it's not enought, to my opinion :) I always try to share honestly my ideas and tricks... Up to you, and the time you have left :)
