I really wanted to get a street shot down in the old parts of Sydney but, alas, I couldnít get there this week. I did take this purely for the challenge but Iím not happy with the lack of light to play with. If I had better pp skills I might have been able to get closer to his style. I do like this image but I donít think it will go down well in this challenge. I just hope jagar likes it a little.

Love the negative space of the water. The b&w works really well with this.

This really does have a cold and desolate feel to it. Nice.

I don't know why but this reminds me of an old classic famous 60's photo, you might know the one, I like it!

The railing on the upper left is somewhat distracting to an otherwise awesome picture.

What is this place????? I like the negative space, although the waves seem a bit oversharpened, and she is a little lost in the vastness. I wish you'd dodged her just a bit
