thanks for the votes. happy to get > 6 on a "best of year" member challenge.


to explain the image, this is a church door in manhattan (midtown) very late at night. the man sleeping on the stoop is a homeless man who probably found some eyeshades in discarded trash.

I really like the lighting, and the little detail you brought out by having it slightly underexposed. It really gives this a sense of place.

A curious image here. I feel like this is the entrance to a church, and I wonder why the man would be sleeping in an open doorway like that, with what appears to be an eye mask on no less. It seems very odd. I like the feel of it, but perhaps not the centered-ness of it. Good color, good exposure, sharp, but leaves me with questions.
