Shot this in the city with the shadows either side being created by buildings and trees, kind of a natural vignette.
Candid shot on the street : )

Even though I've seen this before it still has great impact each time I look at it. Great shot and love the title!

Should have been higher.


hehe thanks Tim! : )

I was walking along and noticed the light on this building. Stopped and took half a dozen shots of some people walking by, then this gentleman came along and I got three shots of him. Total time spent here was less than a minute, in fact, looking at the exif data, first shot I took at 10:58:40 last shot was 10:59:15. : )
Wasn't shooting for the sepia challenge, I was just shooting...

Great photo! Perfect lighting and mid step capture, and a rare find to see someone with a hat like that walking in front of a bulding like that with shadows on either side of them

7 - Nicely done. I'm guessing this is a solitary street light.

I love the feel to this. Would like the photograph to be a bit more bownish for sepia though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2008 06:21:29 PM
I really hope this isn't posed. Either way, its an awsome image and has a total 20's feel about it.

I would love to see another one with him walking into the shot instead of perfectly dead centre... but the idea is super cool...

Love the shot but it's b&w not sepia.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not sepia enough IMO. Very cool shot though.

perfect subject matter for this challenge, you did very well

This is easily my pick for blue. Unfortunately it probably wont get there, and that is just a shame. So hopefully this will help tide you over as I think this shot is brilliant. I so wish I could find stuff like this.' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/50000-54999/53147/120/649858.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/50000-54999/53147/120/649858.jpg', '/') + 1) .
