Hi Jose,
Very strong composition!
Enhanced by the stormy sky but also by this step just in front of him! I hope he saw it just at time! :) I see in this image a pertinent allegory of the frenzied race of individualist society in this age of speed!
Excellent B&W conversion and great dynamism!

Hi Jose,
Nice composition and presentation in Black & White,
good perpective and details.
good contrast too,
beautiful dramatic clouds,

Hi Jose,

I like this "dark light", even if it is an halo around the man. He was darker on the original shot ? However, it is an original POV with a good balance of the light !
Kind regards and best wishes !

A wonderous mood shot very effective b/w. An interesting pov and nothing really professional to say about it I just quite like it TFS

dear Jose,
the anticipation of anxious things, maybe, comes true in this year or in several years...
the dark clouds and the dark earth are very symbolic for the future of the world,
he looks thinking and meditating that fate, but
nobody knows the real future,
in my feeling this image is perhaps right prediction,
thank you for your excellent shot,
