    "woah!" was my first reaction, i didnt know what to expect as i scrolled down to see the rest of the image. maybe a slight crop would make it that much better if you tried to eliminate that piece of the builing or whatever it is at the bottom left corner and going up about 1/2 the picture? just an idea

    nice picture tho
     
  7. Looking at it, my sense of balance gets messed up:biggrin:
    Very cool shot Frits!
     
  8. Too much vino, Frits? It's making me dizzy, but I gotta love it.
     
  9. Thanks all!
    I agree that the piece of building is somewhat disturbing. But cropping would make me lose the root of an important leading line in the bottom left corner. Of course I could photoshop the offending piece...

    Personally I like the lines at work, the symmetry and the complicity with the sitting person (it took a bit of patience to get this without other passers by, which would have ruined the image :smile:). That complicity really makes the image. It would be a moot image without it.
    I was pretty determined with the composition and the resulting image is exactly as shot (no crop at all).

    FWIW: The building is the "Royal Ontario Museum" in Toronto.
