I don't know what made me stop and look over the wall of the embankment, to see the steps where this guy was sunbathing in the rush-hour heat. he reminds me of the Italians who sunbathe on the dam in Florence - but he has the polite English touch of keeping his socks on, which made me smile.

I'd guessed JJ, too (Chris Shipman beat me again). Should have known.

I've already done three 10's (my record) so this has to be a 10 point 5. Contrasts abound ... light, tone, texture, weight, structure, exposure, processing and of course composition; all have got bags of contrast. Of these, it's the composition that's most impressive ... what looks at first like a casual, serendipitous city scene has actually been meticulously assembled and ordered with the eye of an artist.

good contrast shot. i really like how the man's shadow is a mini version of the black wall. i'm uncomfortable with the shot not really leading down to anything, because i easily find myself drawn past the subject due to your angle

Dark vs light balances out almost great here. Just a tad too much bright on the body. Composition is awesome. Feels like a JJBeguin. 8

Almost overwhelming in its contrasts. I think you've captured the entire range from black to white. Nice use of the light and great focus, I do find the intensity of the contrast in this image to be a bit off-putting, though I know that was the point of the challenge. I gave a 6

This reminds me of the work of e301. Very well done. The composition of the structure has great geometry and lighting (including the part in shadow), and the subject adds a point of interest. The stairs have a great textural feel, too.

What a fantastic use of strong light and shadow combined with high contrast processing. Excellent composition aided by unusual viewpoint and strong architectural lines. Love it!

Nice mix of human and man made. I love the simplicity of it. Perfect high contrast too.
