This is just too good. A wonderful image and to be there just at that time to capture it, fantastic. I love it.

Excellent shot, congrats to your top-ten finish. Shoulda placed a little higher, though ;-)

I had to do some quick votes this morning before leaving for work just to get the 20%. I'm afraid to say in that short time I gave it a lower score than I should have because of the distractions of the background, but I did enjoy the fact that he's balancing along the curb. I do that sometimes. ;-)

Yay, finally, a real art photograph in the top 10. This should have won, of course.

Great capture. Even more so if it is a true candid. It is nice to find the kid in people no matter how old. 7 for now. OK - I am back. I was watching my wife vote in this challenge and your image came up. I knew I liked it the first couple of times I viewed it but with a day or two away from it and then seeing it again it really just struck me how much I really like it alot. So on that note - double bump and added to my faves.

Whimsical! How fun emerges in us all.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2006 03:23:28 AM
whatever it is on the left throws out the balance, I would have cropped it out because this is a good quirky shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great pose by this man and interesting foreground and background elements. 10

Nice thought and crisp renedition. Yes it indeed is a simple joy of life
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2006 04:27:56 PM
Wonderful moment and an adorable approach to the challenge. I would've even crop it tighter on the left to loose that wall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2006 07:22:00 AM
This is genius. I love the playfullness and the bike's in the back. Perfect in b&w. 8

For me its as though the man is walking the plank with hands tied behind his back, has he had a good day at work and skipped onto the sidewalk? has he just been fired and contemplating how he is to tell his family? is there an engagement ring in his grasp and he is contemplating starting a family?

Quite interesting and very nice cropping! 7

Fantastic snapshot... great street photography
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2006 09:09:23 PM
Wonderful. The contrast - the moment. The bikes add a foreign feeling to me because no one rides in the streets around here (not to mention that it's below freezing nowadays). The stuff on the lef could have been cropped out but that would have hurt the compostion. I would like to see this in the top 3. 8

nice.

Your picture is very nice.. However, the title does not fit the picture.. It is still an excellent picture and I gave it a 7

Or the simple challenges in life. We all thrive on simple challenges even balancing on a curb.

Strong emotive capture. The bicycle wheels add an interesting element as well.

I love the contrast and the way his back foot was capture on his toe. Very nice depth of field.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2006 09:26:52 PM
Good out of the box work. I hope people take the time to see him walking the tightrope - hence the "simple joys".

how'd you get that picture? It's great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2006 12:03:29 AM
Good take on human nature. Good use of low angle to get the vertical line to stand out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 10:26:26 PM
An insiteful slice of life. Neat shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 05:11:19 PM
neat idea, the black of the suit looks a bit blown out but great contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 05:01:30 PM
wonderful capture. love the hands - they really make the mood of this shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 03:26:23 PM
Nice idea and photo. I would have given an extra point for a tighter crop that missed the distracting "thing" over to the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/06/2006 07:41:17 AM
just great!

somehow he doesn't look like he is enjoying life... very good photo, very good moment you captured, makes me think a lot and that's what I so love about photos.
