See the man furthest into the image? Alone on a bench in Stockholm City Hall…..

Wow! This is amazing. I’m lost for words. And yes, I can see the lone guy there 🙂
Thank you, your kind words are most appreciated!
Superb – for the theme and as a photo.
Thank you! 🙂
Have a great Sunday!
A very striking image and a great place to be alone in.
That is a gorgeous photo. These cloistered shadows really do make for great photos.
Thank you! It really helped the composition, and it was a harsh sunlight that day so I’m quite happy that I had Kodak T-max 100 that is capable to handle this huge range of the light.
Beautiful shot…I think the black and white really works well for this shot!
Thank you very much!
I agree, color had taken the focus away from the somewhat desolate and solitude feeling in the picture.
Great shot! You have prompted me to join in with this challenge too!
Wow, that’s nice, thank you Sue! 🙂
So beautiful — the tones, the lines, everything! And his shape mimics it all in miniature; he looks so tiny in that space!
Thank you! Yes, when I enlarge the image I can see he is actually wringing his hands, as in anguish, so his solitude feels very obvious, and not in a good way…
But I love my image, though….
Powerful image! You can almost hear the echoes in this vast space bouncing from one column to the next.
Thank you Cindy!
Yes, the space is really huge, and it actually feels that way standing there too, great architecture.
Just want to add that I’m unable to comment on your blog, whatever profile I choose, it doesn’t work, very sorry for that…
Wonderful. I love the ‘vanishing point’ perspective leading the eye to the lone figure and the long shadows falling through the columns.
Thank you John!
Yes, all the lines and shadows really helped the composition.
I like the way the architecture dwarfs the figure.
Thank you very much! I agree, just love that too! 🙂
such a strong image! beautiful…
Thank you very much, you are most kind 🙂
What a beautiful photo. 🙂
Thank you Sarah!

I really love the perspective in this shot and the scale comparison to the lone figure. Great shot !
Thank you James. I think that the square format helps to strengthen the composition a lot. But I agree, it is interesting, and it had been nothing without the man sitting there.
Great shot for the theme, and wonderful architectural shot!

(I’m trying to catch up…it was way too busy last couple of weeks! Another few hectic ones to come and hopefully things will slow down then)
Hi there, I’ve missed you! Do not stress yourself, come back when you are ready.
Thank you Marleen and have a wonderful calm and soothing week 🙂
