Still love this shot. Glad I came back to study it. Did you set the shot up, or candid? I get the sense that you used an on camera flash, true? The only thing I don't like is the border, but that has nothing to do with the photograph.

This is one of those images that makes me sincerely think - 'I wish I'd taken that'! SUBLIME.

Exhibit A to help advance the idea that DPC voters DO appreciate these types of images. It's not all about color and splashy setups. Deserved to best mine IMO.

I think this would be 100 times better without the frame, but if you had to keep it, make it a dark grey, or black. The white doesn't fit the picture at all. Awesome photograph tho!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh what a nice black and white image! The composition seems perfect for this, and the men are nice and sharp, really draws your eye there. I love the whole mood of this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like how the heart of this picture is so visually dominated by the window that contains it. Your composition squeezes my perception into a spiritual-aesthetic pressure chamber, intensifying the experience, bringing it to boil sooner.

Great shot. Nice tones and reminiscent of the old masters.

Great shot, love the angle and composition, the expressions and the old feel to the shot. If I may though, the border just seems so unnecessary. The shot in itself tells such a story and frames itself. The shot though is still a top notch shot and to me should finish top 10 if I was the judge. 9 from me.

Great shot. I like the vertical and the high contrast B&W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful image! Beautifully converted to b&w and a magnificent "everyday" sort of composition. Perfect. Back to bump you up to 10 and adding to favorites.
