rushing to catch a bus in Santa Elena (near Flores) bus station. Guatemala is changing very fast, middle class is growing, Indian craft sellers come down from the mountains in their pick up trucks and while sitting on their stalls talk to family on mobile phones...maybe good for them, but not so good news for a tourist always hungry for exotic rather than civilized views.

Hi Swiatek. Excellent play with shadows: the angle of his right leg projected on the floor is superb.

Czesc Swiatek. This is very good, the strong diagnol shadows of the man and post are great, especially that right angle leg, like Gal pointed out. I like that he is just exiting this framing but his shadow is still framed in the other shadows. An intellegent composition. Santa Elena is a neat place, especially at night.

Wonderful composition, with shadows playing all over the frame. Very strong lines. Dynamic.

musze powiedziec ze na stronie (na czarnym tle) to zdjecie wyglada o wiele lepiej. Fajny kadr, zlamanie zasady ze jak ktos idzie w prawo to powinien miec miejsce z prawej.

Great timing, well judged with great colors and shadow play.
Cool title too...

Diamond shaped photo, incredible play with shadows. Love it.
If ever there would be a hand or a leg poking from the left side, that would be a favrotite for sure.

Excellent distored boxes of light, which encompass that excellent distorted elongated shadow of the man, and ooh...that leg...I could look at this over and over and find new interesting things...
my advice to anyone wanting to have some shadowplay...come and look at this picture...

Love the shadows here -- particularly on the pillar in the lower left corner. Regards, charles
