That is enigmatic - but I do like the contrast.
Wonderful perspective Sean!And your way of using light and shadow is like a story of its own.The composition in this picture is brilliant and I can almost hear her thoughts.I LOVE this shot.Truly stunning!
Love the pattern in front of your picture an the dark contrast in the back!Well done!This is my first time on monochrome weekly .You find my picture here
Is she sitting on a roof? It´s a wonderfull picture with the light and darkness./christina
Outstanding capture - a special moment in time.Great contrast! Well done!
Where do you find so many people reading?!! Great lighting. At first I thought it is on the roof - thought - nice roof tiles :) Very interesting!
Awesome picture! I love the cool perspective.
Fantastic angle shot.
like this shot Sean, perspective is good. i like the tiling and its effect on the pic
I like the lighting; it almost looks like the tops of giant Lego bricks in the foreground.
Interesting but personally I would have lightened the contrast so as to see the person a little more clearly w/o losing the shadows
Besides the real nice capture of the geometric forms that the tiles give, the background is too dark for my taste - I tried to adjust my monitor a few times to see more of the person.
I have posted another "lighter" picture of the same afterwards to show you the "person".... I wanted this to be more than a nice picture of a person rather an interpretation of what I saw, that being she looked a little unhappy, and alone.... I believed that to put her in a "dark place" on a very sunny hot day might reflect that a little. I knew that when I did this photograph that she might be "too dark" however this was one which was to me more about the "message" than the photograph...Thanks for the comments though (and criticisms) - they are appreciated!
I think you will agree too that although she may be too dark in the first one, lightening it does not give off much more detail...
For me the "unhappy and alone" mood is more expressed in the second pic by those legs - just walking by without any compassion. In this first photo because of the "you can't really see anything in the background" the emphasis is more on geometry, tiles, squares. Just my opinion of course :-)
Pattern awesome .. nice angle
