A lady lost in the subway,fortunately she fell under a good wing ... I scrambled people behind all the windows so they do not be identified ..
I hope she was able to get out of this bad situation

Wow! What a powerful image for Friday's theme! Awesome capture and composition especially in B&W. Good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.


looking at the pretty strong muscle definition, the fact he/she is fully clothed in clean clothing, is wearing a pretty hefty looking watch and what looks like a Continental European wedding ring on the right hand, I don't think we have anything to worry about.

He/She's either very very tired, very very sick, or possibly very very drunk???????

I'd be inclined to believe this a male as opposed to female. Did you not approach him / her to see if he/she needed any assistance?

On the photographic side of things:
I agree with Eldancer. Nice detail, strong contrast and pretty powerful shot.
Neat work disguising the passers by behind the windows.



Hi,this is like a dream about being lost.Looks real and abstract at the same time.Impressive,all the best,Otto.

Hi Rob.

A very intriging capture, here is one of those images that you need a little bit of imagination to run and evoke thoughts of whats going on and what been going on or what your mind wants to have been happening.

I like the words you have added to this to add a line of thought, its as if we have to continue the story for this unfortunate person.

So good to see you have chosen these tones to portray this scene, so much textures, surfaces, sheens and lines to ponder over. The amount of reflections to the mass of window panes adds to the area and the eye wants to understand more of the outside but unable to.

I like this alot, its not straightforward, its well titled and a sure addition the the theme today, well posted.

Have a good weekend.

stv ;o))

Ciao Robert, great PP work for a strong B&W composition, impressive shoot, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Robert,
Your note has arisen some curiosity in me. The image is really amazing. Everything in it looks statuesque.

Hello Robert, a powerful shot which makes me feel quite uncomfortable...as we can only know what we see.Questions are left unanswered; let's hope that everything turned out alright!
The PP works well, the b/w and the blurred view through the windows.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Bonjour Robert,

Une bonne participation au thème du vendredi, la prise de vue permet de voir cet femme qui semble perdsu au sol où une religieuse est là pour l'aider. Le noir et blanc donne un bon contraste à la scène. Bonne journée.


Fascinating shot that does indeed raise the curiosity level. Interesting contribution to theme. TFS

Hi Robert,
I like your interpretation of the theme 'lost'. Such an original capture of this statue. Very sharp image and the conversion in B&W worked marvelously.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Robert, a scene that is a little too common nowadays, but certainly picked a good spot to stop. I like the light and the amount of detail. Fiona

I have spent much time trying to figure your image out Robert and am still confused, but I guess that is the message you are putting across. The PP work is excellently done, the b/w adds to the overall surreal feel of the shot and the subject is interesting. I would be totally lost if I woke up in this place. Very original addition to this weeks theme.

Very nice, great details. I like! Good contribution to the theme!! TFS

I like the idea and indeed it makes a good contribution to Friday's theme, Robert!
The B/W tones add depth and mood into the scene.
The sharpness and DOF are excellent, though a bit busy BG does take a lot of attention.

Thanks and regards,

Bonsoir Robert,
Une belle présentation de cette dame perdue dans le métro,
belle perpective et détails sous un bel effect en Noir & Blanc,
joli contraste et lumière et un Point de vue.

Hi Robert,
A very intriguing photo. A rare gem I should say as one does not see things like this usually on TL. Very creative imagination on display here, A pleasure Robert. I wonder what is the story here.

Hi Robert,a great image,in as far that it definately is open to interpretation,& I would guess with quite a variety within the TL membership.Not sure if this is an HDR or a Topaz effect,doesn't really matter, as the result is quite vibrant.
I thought this person would not remove their shoes,nor probably fall asleep in this position & still be clutching her bag,so I assumed that she had been mugged & the mugger had just left the scene, due to the entrace door is still open. As I say,many interpretations,this is my one:-) Good work

excellant travail,le rendu ,e plait beaucoup ..
je ne sais pas comment tu fais mais, l'effet donne un texture formidable
