You know D, I almost prefer the crop made by the thumbnail which leaves the closest feet top right but cuts the rest. But that might just be me.

@Lazy Aussie: You know, I thought the same thing when I saw it! I'm going to have a go...

Jerry from Tampa, United States

Love the perspective! Grand tones in this b/w - well done Daroru!

Marwan from Rolle, Switzerland

interesting angle, i like the cracks in the sidewalk but maybe a little too contrasted for my taste.

@Marwan: Yeah, I do tend to go for the high contrast. I don't want my pictures to look overly processed but it's all kind of guesswork for me at the moment...

Damon Schreiber from Toronto, Canada

I'm with Lazy Aussie here, I think its a great idea, and one that I think would make the high contrast really pay off.

@Damon Schreiber: Cheers Damon. I'm going to check it out...

The high contrast turns the figures into mear silouettes. The white stripes contrast nicely and the cracks in the pavement lead the eyes back into the image. If the cracks were not there the white stripes would keep trying to drag the eyes sideways out of the frame. A long winded way to say I think it's perfect!

@gphickey: Thank you gphickey, glad you liked it!

Michael Zhang from New York City, United States

Yes I agree, the contrast of the white stripes is highly effective here.
