Very nicely done.

Very nice use of color and composition. I'd like it even more if you were just a little closer so we could see a little more of the subject, but I definitely love the use of negative space.

I'm a sucker for this style of shots. Love how the person gives scale to the whole image. 9

All the elements in the photo dwarf the human. The wall, the base stones and the street stones, they are all bigger than the person. That's what I like here. Also the domninace of red and orange and suddenly this tiny bit of blue stands out. The one thing that would make it perfect is a little bit of extra contrast, like +12 in Photoshop. It gives that little bit of extra depth to the colors.
Still a 9 for me.

There's something about the enormity of scale of the person, in comparison to the wall. It's a simple statement, but it's very powerful. Great capture.

This photo makes me wonder how enormous this building is! The composition makes it all worth while. I think you had your lucky day: the blue colours of the umbrella make such a good contrast. Amazing photo!

it would've been much better if that lady was standing.

rich tone to it and the color is great.

too distant

Outstanding use of negative space. And colorful, too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 06:22:36 AM
This is one of personal favourites and making the colours pop out more was definitely a good idea for this challenge. Did you sharpened it 'coz compared to your original, it seems a little rough on the outline and edges?

Extraordinary use of negative space!

this would be a great entry in a negative space challenge..well done...8

great sence of scale !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 04:37:57 PM
Very good minimalism ... perhaps too much negative space on top though. I would try cropping off the upper part just below where the paint is peeling off the wall. Lovely colors

I like this image for its extremes - both size and color - which lend themselves to the meaning of the photo so well.

I like your use of space, lines and colour. It's beautiful.

That's a lot of negative space!

I really love the color red to begin with, the texture of the wall is very interesting as well. That person looks so tiny! This is awesome!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 08:41:38 PM
I love the minnimalism here. It makes the illusion of the person being about as tall as a mouse. :) This photo definitaly made me take a second glance, but perhaps a slightly closer crop would have improved the image.

Very nice. I love the use of negative space.

Nice color, great lines, great interpretation of minimalism, great color, great texture, light a bit flat, b&w good, overall excellent.

cool proportions. is that a real person?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 02:46:45 PM
This is a great minimalist shot. Perhaps a little *too* minimalist :) That's a huge wall. wow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 04:48:18 AM
I almost missed the person...
What a great shot.
I was hovering over the 6 or 7 when i thought i was just a texture shot.
But this has got to be worth a 10.
Well done.
The proportion is fantastic.
Good luck

Good subject, but also well treated in this bold composition. It's the great, burning height of the wall that is the essence of this scene, and establishes the context for the tiny person to be cowering in shelter. I also like the inclusion of the patches of peeling paint at upper right - so glad you were confident enough to leave them there! 8.

Good composition. I like this.

Like this a whole lot, enough for an 8 from me. Lovely use of negative space, great composition.

I like the confusion of scale here. Despite the strong colours, I wonder if this would look more striking in B/W???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 04:52:41 PM
This is one of my favourites so far. The figure just looks tiny and you've managed to capture the texture of the wall superbly. New one for my favourites I think. 10

01/17/2006 01:54:08 PM
Wow. I'd love to see more detail in the wall though.

Gorgeous shot! Great color and detail!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 10:21:39 AM
I love how small the figure is, subtly revealing how large everything else is. The fact that this figure seems to be trying to protect him/herself just adds to the feeling of immensity, or dizzy disproportionateness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 10:02:33 AM
I really like this photo, good composition. The person there looks like a little toy, the surroundings is much bigger than I would have thought if the person wouldn't be there. Nice work.

i've seen this before and I loved it then and I love it now. Love the sense of scale that wouldn't be there without the person. love her contrasting umbrella. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:13:30 AM
Is that a tiny little person? I can't quite make out the detail but its definately a minimalistic photo that makes you think. I like it a lot :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 02:10:40 AM
Great! Maybe a 10% more crop would have been better... but then again, the relative sizes here is great too...
