Nice composition and bw
13 May 2010 6:45am
Magnificent dark lines and diagonal rhythm. What a wonderful image of space and contrast and drama.
13 May 2010 6:52am
Effective composition. Your work is inspiration to me.
13 May 2010 7:08am
What a strange and beautiful mood this creates. Love the lines from the steps. You choosed a wonderful angle, making the image somewhat "restless" rather than with the more straight lines. Love it!
13 May 2010 8:05am
nice interpretation about this well captured scene. very good!
13 May 2010 8:08am
Excellent composition! Beautiful light and superb graphism!
13 May 2010 8:45am
Another great incrustation of human being in the stone of our cities... Lines are like a music sheet and he is the partition written on it, maybe ? ;) And I enjoy a lot that you quote my very fav woman photographer too... A cool thursday to waste freely ~ ~ ~

We have large cities yet people can be so isolated in them, the crookedness of the stairs and shading brings you in.
13 May 2010 11:03am
Great composition, I love the angle you chose and the darkness creates a lonely mood. Also an interesting title.
13 May 2010 11:26am
Great atmosphere you have created here Sharon! The shaft of light that partially illuminates the lone figure seems to say that through reading we will find the light! Well done! ;-)
13 May 2010 11:34am
stunning composition, love the low key
13 May 2010 11:43am
Other great compo with beautiful lines. Really like the human figure in this dark light.
13 May 2010 12:06pm
Excellent composition with great lines.
13 May 2010 12:57pm
I like the sense of merged contrasts in this . . the figure sitting in the formality.
13 May 2010 1:45pm
The most fabulous composition to capture this mood of solitude! Another masterpiece, Sharon!!!
13 May 2010 1:51pm

13 May 2010 3:04pm

Another great play with lines. Composition is perfect and graphic impact very strong.
13 May 2010 3:13pm
Great composition, full of drama.
13 May 2010 3:54pm
I don't know what I like best, the composition or the quote. great construction in this shoot. love it. cheers*
13 May 2010 4:12pm
Love your point-of-view and framing. Such a wonderful composition with all of the lines and shadows..shapes and forms.
13 May 2010 4:20pm
No, no, no; "savoring time" :))
13 May 2010 4:31pm
Nice interplay between human and abstract

13 May 2010 6:56pm
The steps and the lonely figure makes this one! He is writing, not wasting time! :))
13 May 2010 8:34pm
Wow, I like how you composed this scene. the lines provide great patterns of shadow and light and the lone figure is a great addition to the scene!!
13 May 2010 10:54pm
really like your composition. nice mood in this.
13 May 2010 11:05pm
13 May 2010 11:12pm
you've got an awesome eye for composition, the diagonal lines and shapes look great here, and the fact that you captured someone right smack in it makes it more great.. well done you! ;D
this is great, the isolation, the contemplation, the light and the repeating pattern are all first class
14 May 2010 5:27am
This is absolutely shocking work! 5*!
14 May 2010 5:29am
Great photo! Well done!
14 May 2010 11:04am
Sitting, thinking, reading. My kind of triad. And your melancholic & bluesy imagery is just my kind of photography. So healing, so great, Sharon! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
14 May 2010 2:02pm
I can hear my mother, "It's too dark to read, you will hurt your eyes". Very interesting steps with the sidewalk in the middle; I have never seen that before.
14 May 2010 2:56pm
Great B&W, very dramatic scene
14 May 2010 4:56pm
Nice scene here. I really like the framing.

15 May 2010 1:55pm
Beautiful lines and tones.
15 May 2010 4:41pm
GREAT shot. Not wasting time - maybe contemplating the ultimate loneliness of man.
We really like this, the tones and composition gives a very strong emotional capture. BRAVO
15 May 2010 11:33pm

16 May 2010 2:47am
must be his favourite waste of time

tu as toujours un regard sur la vie que j admire, bravo pour tous ces clichés si réussi ^^
16 May 2010 4:11pm
Great composition...and love the DL quote too.
16 May 2010 11:26pm
Perfect composition... isn't it a bit burnt-in, though?
17 May 2010 12:27am
@Bishop: thank you :)
Hmmm...maybe. I do tend to underexpose when I shoot though.
nice patterns and loved that title!
17 May 2010 9:45am
Bravo Bluecameleon... I really like this photo ... great composition
17 May 2010 5:03pm
Fantastic composition and mood!!!
19 May 2010 3:12pm
A strange mode in this picture. I like the composition, the lines the stairs make and that little man in the middle.
21 May 2010 7:14am
The composition leaves a place important for the imagination.
Get lost in the lines of the environment and meet in the lines of a book.
21 May 2010 8:47am
Very beautiful shot and composition
27 May 2010 8:19pm
Une composition remarquable surtout par le jeu d'ombres et de lumières qui semblent partir du personnage.
11 Nov 2010 3:12pm
I like this shot a lot. Maybe slightly dark but I actually think that gives it the mood that it exudes. Great work!
13 Feb 2011 6:47pm
perfect play with light and shadow
26 Jun 2011 9:11am
a very good style of geometry
