    Re: Sleep

    I like the feel of this pic. Great atmosphere. I had to search a bit for the person who inspired the title, "Sleep". (This is not necessarily a bad thing, just an observation.) The contrast of his/her shirt against the dark wall helped me pick him out.

    Re: Sleep

    I'm thinking the upper left corner could use a bit of lightening as the darkness is a bit much, otherwise this is a really fine urban image.

    As others have said, good use of B&W.
    No, I DON'T need that.

    Love it.

    If you have a color version of this picture just delete it. It's pretty much perfect in BW.

    Re: Sleep

    A timeless scene.
    If it wasn't for the tagging and the products in the window, it could have been taken any time in the last 100 years.
    I think the dark on the left balances the light of the sky on the right.

    In the original, does the latticework of the fire escapes on the right of the building show up?
    It's kind of merging into the sky which I suspect is caused by the JPEG compression and resizing.

    Re: Sleep

    It's a good shot but I feel the building is ready to fall over. There's enough here though that makes me want to see more.
    Going by Tuna's post above he seems to be familiar with your work. Could you direct us to where we could also have a look?

    Sounds as if you are confirming what is suspected.

    The above picture has since been removed from said gallery but, yes, I would say it is confirmed.
