I meant to say... But this speaks so loudly for itself.

photography is to painting as nonfiction is to fiction. There might still be some metaphorical or symbolic weight to that man on the roof aping superman, but there is also the real man and whatever quotidian or personal reason he had to wear that shirt... and it haunts the symbolism. The same can be said about the composition, which is so visually appealing and strong, the flat surfaces spiraling into each other... cut by two figures and a ladder... but this composition is also haunted by the realities of these two people and who they might really be and what they might really be feeling. Art is in this tension between ideal beauty and concrete concerns... the sacred and the profane.

The Superman guy makes the image, otherwise, it would be stagnant. Great job.

The composition is excellent. Exposure and sharpness perfect. Add to that the discussion we can have in front of this image - how humanity works / plays - living as ordinary mortals, perhaps daydreaming about being something more. THis image may not stand out as traditional art, but it certainly works as a well-created piece of contemporary storytelling (art). Great one for this challenge. 8
