Step by step, and he is one of those. Being part of the Big Whole. Lonely and so much the same of any others. I like the philosophy guessed behind and the eye-contact full of sweet interrogations, he's cool among the straight lines, and does see you.
Two, that is.

Brilliant compo. The lines point in one direction, unerringly, as Whitman says... The light points that way, too. He has no idea he's the one, unless he's reading Whitman as well.

One alone on the dark steps with wonderful light, almost like an X over him. Your processing is fantastic in those soft dark tones, and his inclined head, inquisitively looking over is wonderful. A whole personality implied.

I love the way the light and shadow leads up the staircase to the left, while the ONE single man anchors all, on the right. And he looks at you...the other. :-)

the dappled light on the steps makes this for me, grand shot
29 Jul 2010 5:45am

Shadows over the step are very good - some interesting patterns and details there. All hinging on the individual.
29 Jul 2010 7:00am
Very nice pattern you've got here. Nice job!
29 Jul 2010 7:28am
Love this. I was drawn in because it looked similar to a photo I posted some time back, but.... somehow you capture this air of ... 'je ne sais quoi' ... 'un air de mystère' ... la tristesse de la vie ... solitude des jeunes ….. ?

Great composition of lines and shadows, and fantastic illustration for the verse of WW.

Les pieds dans l'ombre mais la tête au soleil !
Joli graphisme baigné d'ombre et de lumière

great lines and composition

Everyone has already stated the beautiful lines, composition, and use of open space, so I'll comment on something different. :) His position on the stairs is peculiar to me. I don't think I've ever seen anyone sit cross legged on steps before--looks terribly uncomfortable.
