Very intersting composition ! I like the geometric effect.

Love the lines on this shot, did you have to wait long to get the lady on her own ? VERY POWERFUL IMAGE
19 Jul 2009 6:32am
The sharp hard lines "cut" by the human presence : how wonderful and strong, Sharon !
19 Jul 2009 6:37am
Strong and symbolic image. Great composition.
19 Jul 2009 6:47am
Solitude parfaite! Un N/B superbement graphique!

I don't like loneliness. But I always get tired being with colleagues. I feel solitude when I'm in happy people rather than being alone. It is easy way to get seated alone, as usual.
19 Jul 2009 6:58am
The framing is really good and give all the meaning of this scene.
That's what I do apreciate the most. (Il faut que j'apprenne l'anglais)...

Beautifully composed. Love the use of line!
19 Jul 2009 7:56am
Where do any of us belong, I'm still trying to find that place! This is great composition and such a desolate feeling, perfect!
19 Jul 2009 9:02am
Not by but very present nevertheless !
19 Jul 2009 9:15am
Great composition with a strong feel of desolation here!
19 Jul 2009 9:25am
In my opinion the vignettature is not necessary for this shot, because the composition is perfect alone!
19 Jul 2009 9:30am
@Simone: Thanks Simone. I actually have one that has no vignetting...I could not decide, to be honest with you.
Good title, powerful graphic image
19 Jul 2009 10:21am
Great composition and b/w , I like very much these lines that isolate the subject. A perfect title :)
19 Jul 2009 10:26am
Lonely and powerful. Full of emotion.
19 Jul 2009 10:49am
Really good title to go with this nicely framed image. I can feel the loneliness....

Beautiful Sharon! As soon as I saw this picture the old Three Dog Night song "One Is The Loneliest Number" popped into my head. Well done! ;-)

I like beeing alone sometimes, I like beeing retired from the world. It calms down. It's a huge graphic one, and this solitary silhouette adds a bit of humanity to this sharp architectural environment.

Sur le bord de la nostalgie... chercher un chemin d'espoir pour demain...
De la blogosphère je me suis un peu éloignée…« temps de pause… et de vacances… »
En attendant la rentrée, je vous souhaite un bel été tout en sourires...amitiés

a great title, a great quote of Oscar Wilde, a beautiful picture for its...
19 Jul 2009 9:54pm
Illustrative and to the point. There is no seeking clues for meaning here. Nice choice of quote to accompany the image.

Excellent tones and composition. The diagonals and her position within the frame add to the impact and mood.

L'attente parfaitement symbolisée...

20 Jul 2009 2:55am
She's the ONLY subject / object in this shot that has curve lines! Her being there broke the harshness of the composition by those straight lines.
If you know perspective drawing then you will find all the lines go to a vanishing point to the right beyond the framed photo, everything is being drawn and sucked into that point except her...
Her presence is almost like a carefully placed chess figure...
20 Jul 2009 4:11am
It actually looks like she does not do it! I like how you captured that moment and how you chose to show us that.
20 Jul 2009 5:28am
Cool shot! She looks like she is all alone in the world...
20 Jul 2009 7:44am
The lines lead to the solitude of the woman. Brilliant
20 Jul 2009 7:56am
Great light and composition...the loneliness and desolation are so well brought out! The quote is most tragic and profound! Great work!
20 Jul 2009 10:34am
Interesting composition and nice lines.
20 Jul 2009 10:41am
