Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

Belle lumière, jolie silhouette, fait il déjà si froid chez vous?

Dark, dramatic, and mysterious. The contrasting light and dark tones are compelling. Makes me wonder about the details of this man's life !

Ah that light, such a rich one in the way it passes from super subtle grey misty tones to full dark. And i'm stunned and so delighted by the way this illustrates the quote by Hemingway : so many details in the bright vivid part to the details to guess in the dead blind one. A work of deep cleverness and so philosophical. I love the tones in the clearest part, they attract me so much, i wanna follow this beautiful silhouette. And due to the compo (dark at right, bright at left) seems we are in an upside-down direction and slowly escape black feelings to enter more "enlightened" ones under the protective cap-like beautiful little roofs, little street lights and so precious... details. Thanks*

perfect light management, impressive composition in shadows power

i like the trail of smoke, or warm breath
on a cold evening, the mysterious sound
of a man walking between buildings
and disappearing. it seems somehow
dangerous, like tomorrow's rain.

This photo tells a story ... I can hear the music to go with it ... inspiring
8 Sep 2010 9:53pm
What a beautiful shot! The way the street and image staggers into the distance and into the light as we follow the hooded silhouette is fabulous. Very cinematic shot. Really feels like a scene from a movie to me. Excellent!
9 Sep 2010 3:41am
Lovely light and deep shadows lend an air of mystery to this lovely image. And the fog, fantastic!
9 Sep 2010 4:02am
...and because he's behind a hoodie, you wonder what the details are! Is he harmless? Is he walking from shadow into life, figuratively speaking? That's the power of an image like this...a story in the making.
9 Sep 2010 5:38am
Excellent point of view and very good use of light
9 Sep 2010 5:55am
wow, Sharon, this is sooooo spooky!!! talk about atmosphere, this could be from a movie about a serial killer or something like that, the guy in the hoody looks up to no good, i don't trust him one bit lolol GREAT shot!!!
9 Sep 2010 6:08am

9 Sep 2010 12:41pm
Ces silhouettes avancent dans la ville telle des pantins télécommandés ! Un n&b d'une beauté indéniable !

Joli jeu d'ombre !

9 Sep 2010 5:26pm
The smoke around the head enforced by this great light makes a so nice shot !
9 Sep 2010 8:18pm
Never heard this quote before and I like it a lot . The same it could apply for us, women !
This is a beautiful, soulful image. Today I feel the same as this solitary man. Thanks God I see him breathing deeply, feeling energetic ...
9 Sep 2010 10:00pm
What an incredible shot Sharon!!! How I admire your artistic eye and execution! Wonderfully spontaneous... yet every element is simply impeccable! The light (and silhouette and shadows), the angle, the placement, the tone... and most of all, the exceptional air of drama and mystery! Beautiful beautiful poetry of the street!:-)

10 Sep 2010 7:55am
this light gives almost such a hibernal impression, so rough and cold - in this way it's very poetic.
10 Sep 2010 8:30am
The silhouettes aganinst the light take a fantastic symbolic possibility, I like it very much.
10 Sep 2010 10:47am
Wonderful, spooky, gritty, urban.
10 Sep 2010 12:19pm
Great mood and lighting. Excellent capture.
10 Sep 2010 4:29pm
Powerful street composition, really love the dramatic mood. As always your use of light and shadows is impressive.
10 Sep 2010 8:40pm
I really love the atmosphere you've managed to create here... the toning, the composition, everything's synergetically creating a very appealing scene.
10 Sep 2010 9:23pm
I love the gradation of tone here -- wonderful composition and atmosphere!
10 Sep 2010 11:18pm
Dramatic lightning and a composition in this picture that makes it iteresting and gives it a specal atmosphere.. Specially together with that quote of Hemingway. (just one little critical view, if you allow, the vignetting to the left corners are too "distinct" for me, they disturbes more than just leading my eyes and focusing on the man in the middle)
11 Sep 2010 7:36am
excellent PP ... wonderfull mood !!
11 Sep 2010 11:00am
What a wonderful sense of mystery this image evokes. Love the smoke coming out of him. Perfect!!
11 Sep 2010 5:22pm

12 Sep 2010 6:40pm
I love this shot ..... very moody !
13 Sep 2010 12:38am
Very dramatic, nice use of light and contrast.
13 Sep 2010 2:56am
Gorgeous light through the fog and the shadows it is creating. Love that quote, Sharon, it's perfect with this photo.
13 Sep 2010 3:04am
We're all shadows travelling this planet, for a little while, trying to leave a mark....I like the subtle choice of this shot to illustrate Hemingway's words...
16 Sep 2010 6:51am
cool shot... like it a lot
23 Sep 2010 6:30am
Like light and shade, and air
23 Sep 2010 12:33pm

The huge dark part of the picture, fascinating, give a strong seating to your composition. For this reason, the silhouette and her shadow have a really strong presence !
