This is an excellent photo, its wonderful interplay of light, shadow and perspective creates a dark, introspective mood that, sadly, I can relate to all too well. It provided great inspiration for my entry in this week's fotoFRIDAY event.

the title completes it - seriously...they are a 50/50
the photo is great...but without the title lacks the depth and meaning

he's feeling pretty depressed and down, like he lost something and that shadow of his is fading away slowly slowly onto his back side.
loved the idea. and well cropped. :) :hug:.

How many times have we all had to do this? You can really relate to it. I love the light in this shot and the silhouette worked out great in a place you don't expect to find it. Good detail thanks to the low F-stop and a really well balanced composition. I love the simplicity and the shadow. The building out the window seems a constant reminder that you can only take a breather... The corperation is everywhere and they are coming for you!

Great shot!

I think that if I write one more comment, journal, critique, thank you, appreciation, note, forum post, E-mail or instand message today I will die. Plain and simple. So I am with you on that one.

I am glad to hear that I interperated it as intended, that's a rarity with me, so you did your job well. It really is a great shot.

Great shot with a terrific atmosphere. The pose has me wondering if he\'s contemplating a leap from the window as a way out of the race. Nicely done:)

very cool 2nd shot and yet I like that in "a pause in the rat race" I am able to contemplate that situation on my own. This version leaves the whole situation open for interpretation and gets the viewer invovled:thumbsup: great job

Very interesting. Emotive. The b&w palette gives it the necessary depth. The composition is also worth of apreciation: the diagonal shadow looks great with the whole symetry of the image. Very professional!
