The coulourful reflections are from a cafe awning in South Brisbane. He happened to walk into the shot by chance or by luck. Seems he was checking out the happenings in the cafe perhaps.

Love the title. So perfectly found !
Excellent shot : you've waited for the right moment to get the man in the right place. Like between two worlds. This feeling is also enhanced by his shadow, his double in an other world...
The symmetrical effect is well seen.

Very nice shot with brilliant light manage.You caught the man great.

A good occasion you don't miss (chance is part of the photographic art). Well framed with his shadow, the green colors and of course, the man following your title!

The colourful reflection sets this up for a good graphical opportunity and you have capitalised on this by capturing this man in the perfect position. I like how his shadow is cast over the plain paving. Well done for seeing this.

I don't claim to know what this picture means and signifies...all I know is that its a beautiful shot full of symmetry and colour. The light and shadow play make this a dream photo. Well done mate.

a chance you had the presence of mind to capture! Well-spotted graphic shot my friend!

I like this clever and well-executed composition. The man is in exactly the right place, and his shadow has a life of its own. I also like the colors from the cafe awning.

what a catch! and even if - you know me - I would have gone straight for b/w, this alternating green and yellow is quite attractive, too :)
I agree with the squared format, too - who cares for 3:2 ration when you got such a beautiful symmetry!

The colours, lines and shadows created something really interesting, sorry, you have created of course:)With good tools.
You know what I wld do...I wld rotate it 180 to have the shadow on top of this green construction. Cld be fine effect... but it`s just my imagination:)
Very good work

Bella foto con bei colori ottima esposizione e composizione.
bostankorkulugu (42214) 2010-08-20 11:06
well seen and composed, and the title fits like a glove... cropped to see if it looks better when not in square format... what do you think?...

This is a creative way of playing with shadows from high pov, producing such an interesting graphic-like image with strong impact. Thks for your good observation and passion. Good effective vertical format, rich color, good sharpness and texture. And there is still some space for him to advance forward. Congrats, thks for sharing

Superbe composition, avec ce très beau jeu de lignes et d'ombres. J'adore.

Hey..i missed this, beaming in your gallery, just feel you could play around with the proportions but i just blown away by the shadow and the green in there..
well seen Justin
delpeoples (55090) 2010-08-25 23:23
Hi Justin, excellent play of light, shade, colours and shapes. I like the square framing and the human element really adds a change to all the lines and shapes (which are excellent even if there was no man here). TFS and I wish you a good day, Lisa

nice the snapshot with the man to walk on the end of the colourful line of cafe,in the middle of the frame, with the shadows to create a creative effect.Well done.
Glint (6171) 2010-08-31 9:48
a well observed street scene with a strong graphical element.Indeed this is about the nice graphics, raher than the street, I like the contrast betwwen the right half with its lines and colours and the left with its humnan form and almost monotone.
riclopes (35577) 2010-09-01 3:06
Olá Justin, opportunities present to us constantly, we just have to be ready to capture them...that's what you did here very well. Excellent that he's walking 'on the line', fantastic his shadow that might be even more important and appealing than the owner of it. Nice that he's looking towards the wonderful shadowed pattern.
boa (6429) 2010-09-01 14:16
i like your play with light and shadows in this shot. I'd probably have tried with a b/w photo. Or maybe not, i`m not sure. Anyhow,the fields with different colors,shadows and the man on the line are interesting together. It is a nice eye catching picture, well done !
wolf38 (31284) 2010-09-05 4:50
Hi Justin. An interesting photo. The lines, shadowing, etc. result in a graphical structure. The light is presented very nicely. Overall, well observed and well realized. Regards, Wolfgang.

Very good shot and good title too. The line cut the frame into two differents scenes, two differents athmospheres, the graphic effect and the shadow. And the man in the center humanizes the picture.
I like it,

thanks for visiting my galery.
Amazing composition with good perspective, nice colors and a good composition with the shadow.
It's well done

I've been looking at your gallery and you have a very personal style and lots of curious shots and one of them is this one.
Keep on this way...

This is a wonderful shot, Justin. Good point of view and balance. The colors of the windows reflection added to the wow effect!

Interesting work Juzo. The colour is excellent and gives it that graphical look. Well captured.
