The fact that this shot only got a 6.3 makes me despair of EVER getting a 7 myself.

WTH you gotta DO around here to get a 7?

This is a great shot that modulates beautifully, both tonally and topographically.

I have seen this several times, and I always enjoy it, The simple life... Everything is beautiful, to anyone who comments on blown highlights, pay no attention to them, this photo should not be changed.

B&W looks really good with this picture.

I like how this pic is in black and white. It's simple, but you acn't really see the person very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Such a peaceful and classic scene, very nicely done!

I can't remember whose this is, but I do remember it. Liked it when I first saw it - still like it.

Back to comment. Great contrasty image. Very attractive composition - well done. 8

Nice composition. I might've gone even further with vignetting to bring the focus right to the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good use of bw and leading lines. For some reason, I find the person in the distance on the right and the bench near on the left appealing. Adds the element of a story to the shot.

very good, very good photo ... excellent choice of black and white

absolutely stunning! the figure makes it perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 06:24:00 AM
I like. The bench - a sense of a possible rest from her endeavours, is a very nice touch. A touch more control of light might have been effective - she perhaps disappears into the highlight lines across the road too much? Very strong composition.

love this...it has a timeless feel to it that's not easy to create....

reminds me of "rain man", well done

Nice shot - would like to see this in color. For me, I don't think the b&w helps it.

Wonderful image and processing. Best conversion to B&W I have seen thus far. Nice and crisp. Good Luck.

Loved the editing on this the first time I saw it, nice composition too! :o)

I recall seeing this in your portfolio & remember really liking it - very appealing composition with a nice pattern of light & shadow. I can't think of a better title to bring attention to the plight of the figure here. The only faults here would be the blooming on the left (center blooming works well for this image, though) and the ever so slight sense that your focus is soft.

Really like it - very strong image! << 9 >>

Will he stop at the bench?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 05:13:01 PM
a very stong image. a little more detail to enhance the subject (and rid of the patch behind her) would improve even more. nice capture

Well - I sure hope you didnt do more than hide your portfolio version cause I cant remember word for word what I wrote over there. And what I will do is come back to this afterwards if you have so that I can fave this one. Once again - GREAT SHOT!

This looks similar to Oak Alley. I really like the human element here along with the bench to balance out the shot. Very cool shot.

I like this, the bench is brilliant!
