Cessy, I really like this daily life photo. You made a great work converting it to B&W. Light and contrast are excellent. I like the angle you chose. It makes an interesting frame to the outside.

Bonjour, Cessy. C'est une jolie photo d'atmosphère urbaine que tu nous montres ici. J'apprécie l'expositin très bien maîtrisée qui permet de voir des détails dans les zones ombragées tout en évitant la surexposition de la partie éclairée. Le passant apporte la vie nécessaire à la réussite d'une telle photo. Et évidemment, le noir et blanc est un plus dans ce genre d'images.

Hi Cessy, Nice contrast, well use of light. You did a good job to show the contrast of the indoor and outdoor with different lights. Nice to show the guy walk into the sunlight and the bright out door. The B&W provide a special effect.

A wonderful composition in b/w from daily life of Geneva. The low angle gives excellent perspective and depth. Perfect light management between shadows and highlights. Very well done!

I have think to publish quite the same, but I have prefer my water jet... good choice as you have show this view. The B&W choice is nice here.
Well done Cessy.

Beautiful play of lights and shadow, Cessy. Not that I didn't enjoy the variety of interesting Luminarium photos that were recently seen here, but I am glad to see an alternate subject taken on the day of the TE meeting in this photo of yours. The play of light and shadow is well shown, the man - essential for the compo - is so well included, and the framing is very nice too.

Good choice to make this a B&W shot. The lighting is very good here to do that. Well composed and that lonely man on the stairs is an excellent addition. Very well done!

Wow Cessy, what a b/w! I just love that amazing light. What an interplay of shadows as well. Most impressive Cessy!

I like the sepia tone, sharpness, & superb backlighting, in this wonderful b&w. The man adds context & scale. Bagus sekali!

Nice black and white and also nice POV. The light is also good and the man in the stairs adds interest to the photo.
About the Alhambra... I think that I prefer the spanish Alhambra. Anyway, nice shot.

Nice shot! Looks like you went back there once the whole TE crowd was gone! ;o)
Your compo is just excellent, with the man positionned just in the right place. Very good conversion to B&W with perfect contrast everywhere. I just love it!
Have a nice week-end (Zermatt, if I remember correctly?)

C'est presque dommage, cette enseigne "orange, swisscom...". ca nous ramène dans la vie actuelle alors que tout le reste est tellement difficile à situer dans le temps.
Très beau noir et blanc tout de meme.

trés belle image aux dégradés superbes . Le jeux de lumiére est subtil.

A well composed shot which is well suited for a B&W motif. This shot reminds me of the many times one emerges from subways in European and North American cities up into the light and the cityscape. Except here the vista is quite enchanting and clean, perhaps characteristic of Swiss attention to neatness. I like the play of shadow and light on the stairs and how the walker enhances and warms the scene. Superb POV and a gtreat shot.
