It's actually a self-portrait. Used self-timer and tripod. The couple in the background... I don't know who they are, but they add to the story ;-))

I can't believe that someone scored this a "1". It's because of voters of this calibre that I didn't renew my membership. Great photo and easily worthy of a ribbon IMO.

Lovely story. Lovely image. I'm sorry there isn't a ribbon for you... I gave this a 10.

Wonderful Image Silvio, was so nice to meet you in London, we look forward to visiting you in Rome then you can show me this bench so I can lay down on it and eat some Pizza.

"...you may have already won TEN MILLION DOLLARS from the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes!" -Ed McMahon ;-)

I guess if you're not American, I'll have to explain the joke. Anyway, a stunning and terrific image and I predict a top 5 finish!

Very despairing body language and interesting curves to follow to the background. Light was either very uneven or you dodged a bit extra in some spots.

This damn scale doesn't go up to 11!?!? Excellent mood, wonderful perspective, clear concept, and the couple in the BG ties this together beautifully.

Superb photo. Love the subject, the composition, the leading lines, and even the post processing. Among best of show.

Love the curve of the wall and the story this tells
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2008 02:42:37 PM
Well thought out .. makes a rather ordinary subject much more interesting.

Great setting, enthusiastic performance from your model, nice artistic processing to complete the presentation.

Great leading lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is spot on - tells the story well - my pick so far 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2008 12:04:02 PM
Great image and my top pick. The processing mars it a bit because of the sharpening halo around the foreground figure and background dome. Otherwise great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2008 04:26:48 AM

I love the line that leads from dear John to the lovers in the background.
Were they a fortuitous find or were they in on the act? 9

Cool shot, my highest vote. Would of liked it if the higher quality of light carried on past the main character, or there was a low DOF used. Well done.

Can't tell if this was a set-up or not, but either way, brilliant. Commenting only.
