I personally like the composition. I wasn’t looking forward to where the guy was going, but after admiring the bicycle which is a plus for me in any image:-) I was admiring your processing. Then, my eyes went upward to those wonderful steps. The only time I see things like that is on Law & Order…lol…seriously. Love your wife’s advice. B’lve I will:-)
A cool shot. Love the selective colouring and indeed, the composition (photographic rules be damned, I’ve never bothered with them myself ha ha). The architecture and the metal stairs absolutely shine. Excellent work
Wow! What a fantastic image. The selective colouring works so well, and that structure is immense and the man is great perspective, or perhaps that is the other way around. Great shot!
it is indeed a great composition i should say. on such a dull kind of day, you need color! =D
Lovely selective coloring! Loved it!
Who told u it’s a bad composition? It’s superb! your subject is on dot rule of third! 🙂
Really nice composition!
Funny image… yes… we all need a bit of happiness… thanks for putting some color in our lives ! 🙂
Well as a husband I know when to folloow the wifes advice (always) so even though its your wifes advice, I am working from home today.
Great shot, the snow coming in sideways says it all, and the colorful baloons is the added bonus 🙂 Well done
Perfect composition and scene.
Beautiful work! I love the selective colour and honestly I think the comp is perfect!
Fantastic and very creative. Love the textures and coloring. Nicely done.
The guys as somewhere to go and that’s to a party. I was not going to grab a beer but since you don’t care then what the heck. I really like the photo, very cool!
Wow… borderline angry description there. If you feel he has nowhere to go, just change it to he already went. In that case, nice composition. I like the selective color. I didn’t realize you did this sort of ‘photoshop’ thing. Very nice. Different for you.
Is it a bad composition? I don’t think so, the stairway fits very well. And it’s all about ways 🙂
i like that he feels ‘held in’ the frame by the archway. almost feels like we are willing him not to go but to stay here with those wonderful balloons. also there is movement in the balloons particularly the bottom one – so i think this compensates.
Terrific selective coloring…nice work!
Is this in the Bronx? – I like the composition and I like the guy walking out of the frame. And even though I am not a fan of selective coloring it works here and goes well with your wishes :} And where I am (about 50 miles north of the city) it is miserable indeed – I did not even bother taking the camera for a walk..
thanks! this was taken in inwood.. harlem.. approximately in the 200s streets.. well, i could just imagine how could it is there now.. tsk3.. 😀
haha. great catch though. like that you made the balloons color against the b/w. total spot of color.
Like the selective saturation. Is it raining or snowing. In this weather, this guy really doesn’t have any place to go to 😉
Nice! I first thought the person was riding the bike, but I was wrong 😉 A little color in this terrible weather is a good thing! Very nice photo!
I really like the use of selective colors. It seems like a depressing scene but the balloons cheer you up!
Great shot, love how you use the selective colors.. the monochrome background and the colorful baloons
i’m not normally a fan of this kind of thing but i have to say it works brilliantly here. tremendous.
Love the use of selective colors, cool shot!
