"Rocks" are too melted. Would look better with larger cubes.

Comment by Photologist:
Composing the subject (the glass) more off center, and not having those dust specs (bottom left) would have gained an extra couple of points.

Nice tones, and the sepia doesn't knock you over. I like the red bag.

Thank you for the comment.

You can seen from the ground line that I was indeed standing off a bit to the left.

The shadows are real and not photoshop.

Comment by klstover:
One thing I notice is that the lines are at an angle, like the perspective is just a bit off. I don't think that detracts too much, because the photo has an old-timey feel, obviously enhanced by the absence of color.

I very very much like how this image has really black blacks and really white whites. It's great how there is so much contrast and yet I don't feel like any of the details are missing.

Also incredible is the shadowing - almost as if the shadows were placed there by someone using Photoshop in order to enhance the letters and other details.

Very good photograph and one I greatly enjoyed looking at!

Thank you.

I need to do more black and white. I started in photography in black and white and between match-needle exposure, manual focusing, and personal developoing and printing I really had much more control over the picture.

I may have gotten lazy with cheap color. Indeed, my most favorit "color" pictures are really almost monochromatic.

For example.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/366455.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/366455.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/328107.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/328107.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/336829.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/336829.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/372697.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/57429/thumb/372697.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the link to this image! My answer to do I like this one better is YES!

Firstly removing the 'posters' has worked well, the focus is now firmly on the gentleman in the doorway. Converting to B&W has taken away so much of the emphasis on the shadow in the foreground and allows the viewer to concentrate on the light shining from the left.

Well done! :o)

Nice old building, but the picture needs to have some really black blacks in it.
