Didn't think much of this on first glance. But it grew on me. I've been liking the cutoff portions on other photos. For some reason, I wish his feet weren't cut off on this one. It may be a sense of balance that I feel I'm missing. Unbalanced photos are quite nice, but this one seems to need it. That being said, it did grow on me quite a bit, and I like your title.

An enjoyable play on focus and perspective, his expression is priceless.

I do like the wet windscreen as a natural overlay. The composition and wonderful, especially with his look and the bird. The shot works well.

I love windshields as filters. It's the romance of the road, and also the sad isolation of the wanderer. The windshield is the lens and the car is the camera, taking one big picture of a country, capturing so much and losing so much. Yes, I drove by you and I saw you. No, I don't know what you were thinking or feeling, but you were near the road that I was on, so that road connects us... you know... like a bridge... or a bird flying to find a sanctuary and bring you back a piece of it.

Awesome fun capture! raindrops on the windshield and the soft black and white.
I can see you getting a cool comment from Ubique.
I think this fits him well.
I can see what this is just by the contrasts and its a very cool photo

Everything is half-important. The bridge, the city, the visibility.

Even so, I could not take my eyes off his face, captivated by that stare, even if it is impossible to see.

This terrifically titled image hits all the right notes. I see loads of references and symbolism which float the entire venture into contemporary biblical territory. Is Noah on the ark or diddling about as the deluge begins? The seagull as dove? The arc of the windshield wiper as rainbow? Then there's a bridge and a not so golden city. There's a sense of angst here abetted by the gray tones and somber skies. And it's real artistry to have droplets on the vehicle's front window transform into actual rain. The composition is nuanced and well-balanced. Paralysis scuttles forward into the 21st century.

This image is reminiscent of the book of Genesis and, though I'm not necessarily a believer, I find it satisfying ... God promises that from this new fertile earth will follow an equally fertile lineage for Noah and his family. So it be.

Great title. The image brings a sense of sadness for this poor man have no place to get out of the weather. The graffiti on the bench and the tones adds to this illusion. Gloom and doom comes to mind; I hope it is just an illusion.

His timid body language is in stark contrast to the determination of the seagull, lovely rendering and overall a wonderful photo.

The rain and the single bird helped me feel a bit of loneliness with this image. Will you be my friend?

I like the tones, and of course I love all that rain spatter. It's dark (a good thing) and also clever ... the bird animates everything including the apt title. Also I very much like the fact that the human figure is places unconventionally, with so much of the picture behind him. It's good to see all these sacred cows turned upside down to such good and interesting effect. Thank you.

Excellent title. Gloomy, dreary, eerie, and a bit uncomfortable.

This is a good tribute to Ubique. Just enough enigma and affectation to make it interesting. The composition is wonderful..and shooting it behind glass with drops on the glass really works. Well done!

I see the car window wiper pattern, a very strange and wonderful image, he looks like you caught him doing something. TT.

Well done, this is a very hard challenge. the beautiful simplistic style of the artist with its depth is hard to imitate.

I love this - the title too. One of two gulls arrive with the rain, his ark parked beyond the wall.

The graffiti, a signature of a spoilt world that he'll miss less than much.

Great tones, excellent story, beautifully subdued.

The split tones are magnificent.

Magic. And a 10 from me.
