This is good, very good ! I like it.
The light contrast is well managed and the 2 light windows (on the door and on this man) are just enough to this scenery, I would even darker the low light part to increase the contrast.
Thanks, Alain -

Excellent shot... feels like looking through the windows of a stereoscope.
What is funny for me is that it reminds me much of a shot I took in NYC subway, similar warm colors and cinematic/frame by frame motion feel.

Oh ! Its really a very original subject, and a good composition !
The contrast clear-obscure is really amazing, and emphasize the subject.
I really like this picture. Well done

The highlights/shadows really convey your noted sense of historic loss in this shot, complimented by the downward tradjectory of the man and the stairs.

Hej Swiatek. Very cool composition, what is inside these 2 light boxes is great, really good stuff, very creative and original.

As usual, splendid work with light and shadows. And also great colours and a clever composition.
Thanks for share.

Very, very, very nice. I don't think I need to explain why.
