Congrats on the ribbon John. I have been coming back to look at this from time to time. There is just something both mysterious and otherworldly captivating about this that it draws me back to look. I keep seeing this and I seem to be the only one - there is this 'shadow' stain outline of a horse/wolf leaping from the shadowy man. The head is the darker stain on the wall where the leg is lighter and bent in a leap. The hoof/paw comes down on that white box. Perhaps the messenger has a ride to get to places more quickly. Or may hap that 'shadow' on the wall is a manifestation of his animal form...which in that case it makes me think 'Dark horse' or 'Bad Wolf'.

Congrats John. I'm not sure that he is bringing a welcome message, as he looks a bit like the grim reaper, but it's a fantastic image nevertheless. I agree with the earlier comment about it being nice to see a bit of color in some of your recent images.

It has all the flavors of medieval France. Very cinematic.
(and if it's John's picture, very nice use of levels and curves, even if you just use shortcuts!)

Great street capture... love the feel of the bricks. The toning, shadows, and capture of movement are all well decumented.
