Loneliness: is a feeling where people experience a powerful surge of emptiness and Solitude. Loneliness is more than the feeling of wanting company or wanting to do something with another person. Someone lonely may find it hard to form human contact.
One of the first recorded uses of the word "lonely" was in William Shakespeare's Coriolanus.....
....Loneliness is not the same as being alone. Many people have times when they are alone through circumstances or choice. Being alone can be experienced as positive, pleasurable, and emotionally refreshing if it is under the individual's control. Solitude is the state of being alone and secluded from other people, and often implies having made a conscious choice to be alone. Loneliness is therefore unwilling solitude...
People can experience loneliness for many reasons, and many life events are associated with it
....Philosophically: the existentialist school of thought views loneliness as the essence of being human. Each human being comes into the world alone, travels through life as a separate person, and ultimately dies alone. Coping with this, accepting it, and learning how to direct our own lives with some degree of grace and satisfaction is the human condition....from wikipedia loneliness...
*I do not want to feel loneliness! I want always to have company somebody even my thoughts. Here him you see the thoughts?

Excellent night shot with a magnificent composition, good light and POV. Tour title goes very well with your photo atmosphere, loneliness is something that we have to avoid, life is so beautiful when you are with a love one, or friends or your family.
Best regards and hope you will have a nice Sunday.

A fine composition that takes good advantage of your high vantage point and the dogleg made by the path. But is the mood of the composition that grabs one the most, the lone figure sitting under the lights, which give an eerie glow to the surroundings. Very well seen and executed.

That is beautiful and at the same time with a touch of loneliness! Great light management! You've made the right choice to capture from above! Thank you for sharing! ΦΙΛΙΚΑ Στέλλα

a beautiful nighttime atmosphere, where the man confers an absolute peace of the environment.

Your text does not treat something of funny, but of a human test which can be difficult and sometimes tragedy. The photograph and its red dominant color, added to the sight of only one person are very strongly suggestive of what you wrote. A good work and a beautiful image.
Have a nice day

The zig zag pattern of the pavement, with the light along the stones, the streetlights and then two benches and one lonely person! An outstanding picture with a lot of symbolism!

Lovely night time scene with rich golden tones that contrast so nicely with the lush green trees.
Wonderful texture and sharpness to the stone walking path. Excellent thought provoking note.

your composition perfectly renders the idea of loneliness. Splendid high perspective to create great depth of field, excellent light management. My compliments!
Have a nice evening, my friend. I'll see you soon.

A nice scene of night view with isolated spot to show your title's theme. The WB color tone is helping to create a mood for this view.
Very informative note that you have given for loneliness. Everyone of us have gone through the stage of emotion at least once.

Geia sou Giorgo,
The solitude is a magnificent moment when it is chosen and one horrible moment when it is imposed. When I see an only person on a bench as here, I always wonder about what a solitude it is!
I like this paved road full of curves, it is the expression of my questioning with regard to the solitude!
jafadabret (56501) 2008-11-30 4:18
La solitude est souvent mal supportée par les gens qui la ressentent comme un manque. Cette photo exprime la mélancolie engendrée par la solitude à moins que ce soit l'attente de l'autre. L'homme n'est pas fait pour vivre seul dit la Bible.
Belles couleurs dans cette superbe composition nocturne !

Καλησπέρα φίλε Γεώργιε.
Διαφορέτική από ότι μας έχεις συνηθίσει αυτή την φορά η φωτογραφία σου.
Συνήθως οι φωτογραφίες σου, με τα έντονα χρώματα και το δυνατό φως, η τα μαγευτικά ηλιοβασιλέματα με τα υπέροχα χρώματα, βγάζουν κάτι το χαρούμενο.
Η συγκεκριμένη όμως "βγάζει¨μια μελαγχολία, την μελαγχολία της μοναξιάς, που είναι όμως και το ζητούμενο την προκειμένη περίπτωση.
