Hi Chuck, where is this actually taken? That is one crazy wall and it sure clashes with the floor.I think I'd be tempted to lose the guy though,only because he seems a little out of place the way he is staring at you.B&w suits it though.Fiona
I like the entire image. Wow what great B/W work on this one. Good capture of all shades from white to black. Nice addition of the man to the left.
You really achieved to convey a kind of interaction between the architecture and the passer-by. Il like how the lines of the building seem to "push" him outside your photo. OK, as Fiona puts it, it would have been better if he had not been staring at your lense but all in all it does not bother me. Having him NOT in your composition, would make this image less captivating.
Interesting black & white conversion with strong contrasts enhancing the power of the architectural lines and, thus, of your composition.
TFS & kind regards,
