Looking at [user]jjbeguin[/user]'s extensive portfolio I was trying to define it somehow, which took some time... Not because of lack of style or anything, but simply because he is so versatile! And what came up eventually was the word "serendipity", since none of his creations seem to be staged, but rather stumbled upon and brilliantly captured.
So I ended up not submitting few of the set shots, but rather this one, which was sheer luck with the person passing by (ok, the mist is always there, there's an exhaust in the wall :-)).
Very honored to get a [user]posthumous[/user] blue and such an incredible amount of nice comments, a fave and high votes in the challenge with so many amazing photos!
Have to thank [user]jjbeguin[/user] for the true inspiration!

Yes! I knew this one would win. So very deserving! Congratulations. The effort you put into emulating his style shows in this amazing image!

beautiful shot. I would peg it on 21_N.gif ubique if I did not know he was hiding in the bush. Congrats on the double blue!

Very strong image won't quickly fade from memory and if it does will demand refreshing. This is an example of how a single element not only ties it all together while providing that essential opposite to make the point. The statuesque solitary person among all the modern chaos makes it work. Hard to imagine how it could be improved.

A magnificent jumble of enigmas. In my top 5 of the challenge. 10.

I love everything but the left edge (too bright, pulls the eye) and the leaning feel. 7

Perhaps more evocative of a 21.gif Nixter for me but that's hardly a problem. An easy 10 for me.

Great image. I love the mix of light and darkness, and the person almost hidden there in the darkness - fantastic. Spot on for a jjbeguin to me.

Nice mix of hard lines and soft volumes, good street photography

Severe modern lines paired with more traditional structures, nicely conjoined by the steam and punctuated by a solitary,soon to disappear, figure. Nicely seen and handled, well within and honoring JJ's vision.

Good find!

not the decisive moment, but the spectacular perspective. I'm adding this to my list of candidates for an actual jj, just because it is so good. and I'm giving it my blue.

Fabulous contrasts in tones... perspective... that smoke winding around the lines. Love this.

So many wonderful elements in this image. Leading lines, shadows, steam, and geometry to name a few. What a find!
