Centered composition works well and the lockers/doors with reflections do a great job framing your subject. This reminds me of how difficult high school and adolescence can be.

Ceiling is out. Darker maybe.

Awesome shot... i love how the colours are limited to red/white/black, and the reflection in the floor. Looks like a hospital, but this would also be cool in a school hallway. 8

Bumped up to 10, and added to favourites.

Interesting image with nice creative composition. The reflections work well and make it seem as if the girl is hovering or levitating. 7

Not sure what is it, but you created very appealing composition - colors, lines, reflections - all works very well together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:27:03 PM
This shot screams "stock"! Great job on the conceptual theme, "alienation" is another.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Such a different photo, it's a great thing, love the colors and lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Well captured and presented. This probably asks more questions than it answers. I like that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

recommend you darken the tones of the floor reflections more (you may have to do this selectively), Nice abstract. good technique , well executed. You have to experiment with the post processing more. 6

like the leading lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:13:59 PM
This is a different perspective. Very well done. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:41:28 PM
I would have loved to see this shot with the lights down the hall off. It's still a great composition. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:25:18 AM
Good perspective and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 10:10:25 AM
The red, white and black colours make a strong graphic image, well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:26:43 AM
I love how this picture is composed with the ground level perspective. Well done. 8.

The processing enhances this image very well. I love the concept. (voted earlier comment only now)

Great, great , great - the only thing: less floor
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:07:39 PM
Good clarity and well framed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:34:38 AM
Very effective use of framing. Almost psychedelic in its effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:15:17 AM
Wow. Perfect use of central composition. a very intriguing shot. 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 03:26:48 AM
Love the horizontal stripes with all the vertical lines, inspired!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 02:47:54 AM
A fave for this. Fluorescent lights are often poor for interesting shots, but you have taken good advantage of them and also conveyed your title well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 01:28:26 AM
I like it. Its different and very interesting in an edgy, artsy sort of way. I love the clean bold lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:10:04 AM
The repititions are what really creates the interst in this photo, the color being limited to just three colors furthur drives the interest. I don't know if it was by design or by accident, but the horizontal stripes of the sweatshirt adds a nice bit of graphical whimisy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:49:25 PM
I love the lines and reflections - very fine centered composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:53:30 PM

03/13/2009 07:21:02 PM
clear focus, clean colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:39:03 PM
Love that reflective floor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:30:01 PM
The leading lines, light and shadow, the reds whites and blacks, the stripes repeated both horizontally and vertically, the reflection continuing in the floor...all of these combine to a make a great picture. You have a great eye!! This is not a picture that I typically would like, however, you have combined all the elements so well, I love it!! Bumping it to a 10.

Better not be there when the mop and wax crew comes by.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:03:42 PM
nice use of a low POV, and the semi-high key works too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:34:44 AM
unique perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:52:51 AM
Very nice. I love the sitter and the colors are nice and natural.

I like the dialog between the stripes of sorts
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Takes me back to my school days when I was sent out of class to sit in the hall :)

Really nice colours and engaging POV
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:32:01 AM
Quick, somebody tip that janitor! Them's some seriously nice floors!

Great pic too btw. I 10ve the idea of the vertical lines of the school contrasting with the horizontal lines of the child who appears to be not getting along or running against the grain.

If you look really closely, you will notice that there is a subtle rhythm of horizontal lines along the top which have a 'leading' effect suggesting unrealized motion in that direction, presumably an exit.

Very interesting pic.

1/4 Hard Candy + 1/4 Shining + 1/4 Elephant + 1/4 Paranoid Park = a perfect cocktail. 8

Simple and good. Nice shot.

creative photo, love the reflections on the floor, the lines and the red / white colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 03:00:25 PM
Such an emotional image. Love how you chose to shoot them from behind. Gives it more impact. The reflections and red walls really add a lot. Great angle to boot. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:29:34 PM
Great light and relfetion. I love the symentry.

very nice shot

03/12/2009 11:40:58 AM
I wish there was a little less floor in this image, but the colors work very well. Whites are a little bright though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:33:40 AM
I love the lines & the colors in this. The reflections work well, and the student (?) provides a great focal point.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:55:15 AM
INteresting play with lines here. The reflection really adds to this. The lines in the sweatshirt fit well with the perspectives of the ceiling - and there could be some metaphor here since the figure sort of rebels against the composition but at the same time fits neatly into it. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:55:28 PM
great composition! I love the opposite lines of the hoodie verses the lines of the doors and hall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:18:45 PM
Excellent composition. Nice "jail" suggestion with the striped hoodie.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:02:12 PM
Ohhh.... too cool! The reflections making vertical lines yet broken in the middle with the horizontals. Lovely.

Not voting yet.

nice symmetry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 07:42:50 PM
Just love the lines on this, both vertical and horizontal. Very bold colors, and the reflection on the floor is incredible. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 07:20:10 PM
Very cool shot! Love the lines, and the implied vanishing point. Interesting image. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:18:16 PM
A wonderful sense of design and color in this emotive image! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Whoever you are, you're a lines master! Clever clever work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:35:34 PM
Very centered, but a nice reflection on the floor and I like the simple use of colors here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:20:47 PM
All the complementing vertical and horizontal lines, from shadows to shirt, make this shot superb.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:42:37 PM
Interesting lines in this composition.

looks to posed, not like a real breakdown. well exposed and focused.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 11:12:56 AM
I like the red on one side and white on the other. Also, the vertical vs. horizontal lines.

maybe a bit too much glare (though that could cuase a breakdown for sure!)
