What a magnificent, timeless image--love the depth of field, the subtle framing and detail in the shadows. Grows on me more every time I see it.

Hmm .. I have some shots from a similar perspective taken last Summer -- I'll have to look at them again. This has a nicer background, although it would be nice to replace the minivan with a Model-T.

I can't decide if I like the posterizing effect in the background, but I understand why you did it. It's well done, subtle. 8

Well composed image. Interested to see what post shot editing you did or if the background is actually a painted wall as that is the way it comes across to my amatuer eye. I Like it nonetheless.

I absolutely love the lighting in this picture. The person sitting down also makes a point of origin to look at, which i think you need in a photograph. Job well done.

Interesting how many of the lines in this photo lead to the person on the bench:
- line from the roof along the wall
- shadow/sun border on the floor
- the bench in the foreground
Shame the person is in such a deep shadow. He seems deep asleep as well. :)

A train it the distance might make it a bit stronger, but I like the setup of the composition, just not how the light falls.

Terrific composition. Beautiful light, contrast & great intrigue in the waiting figure. I just can't make my mind up about the processing. It nearly works, I think. Maybe it was an 8 once, but now I think 7.

Nice photo. I like the soft colors in the distance contrasted against the darkness of the figure. It tells the storey nicely. I would have given higher marks if you could see more of the outline of the shadowy figure. 7

VEry nice this photo, its a great candid photo.
The buildings on the left side seem to be a little strange, seems like the post process just didn't seem to be very great. But maybe thats just me.
Everything else seems great.

Great classical beauty this pic. Long after we're gone the glory of this pic would still shine it's rays of glory on this world. A real winner in my book. Well done.

I really like the background of this image - ery painterly, the foreground is perhaps a little too dark, but a good effort nonetheless. 6.
