Great technical shot and composition. Good use of diagonal lines.

When I look at a shot like this I feel inspired. It's not flashy, it doesn't rely on Photoshop to process the hell out of it (like I seem to need to do often to score well on DPC), it speaks to me.

A good choice of DOF and a good POV make this a great shot. I'm not sure that I would have seen this shot as I walked by this location - that's a talent I don't yet have.

Adding you to my fav's.

Strong composition, quite metaphorical - the literal "end of the line" is where we all end up after all.

I like this. I like it even better cropped tighter on top so the fence on the left runs out of the picture instead of ending by pointing at the buildings beyond.

Very nice perspective, leading lines and timing. Top ten.

Doesn't bring forth Manet for me (title reference), but I find the image extremely compelling. Well visioned - excellently composed, toned, and thought out. Reminds me of e301 in that sense. The depth of field is wonderful and telling - seeing the blurry past, following through the frame to the present and the close at hand future. Beautifully conceived, an entire life story of sorts. you sold me. 10

Love the composition here - I think I've seen this row of benches before? Very pleasant and well-presented view.

I like the way you used depth of field to draw the viewer's eye to the man.

brilliant .. love the dof and how it leads me to the man .. his age and posture and the graves in the background give a sadness to this image .. love the b&w process .. :)

I like to lower POV

like the shallow depth of field. The man adds human interest. Very good.

DOF works to lead you to subject. Like the B&W. Commenting only.
