Tony from United Kingdom

Great photo! I love the composition. The silhouetted figure and also the small details like the highlighted edges of the steps which give the viewer just enough information.

Shiva from Berwick, Canada

A great composition ...... I like the mood, the BW, the silhouette of the man as well as his shadow. - Lots of details in this image.
Regards Monika
PS -- I think I would wait there forever before I would go down the stairs - not a very inviting staircase !!

@Shiva: Thanks Monika! It's not as bad as you think ;-)

Lulette from Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Excellent, this could be taken from a série noire film! Well, I actually thought of Christopher Walken when I saw the silhouette. Love it! :)
