this shot is quite excellent. quality is superb and the composition of the lines becoming wider towards the bottom looks great.
very well done.

I like too....very deep, and speaks so many things.

"leaving the show alone......"

"One man stage...can be a lonely stage"

"our life is a blur in the face of humanity"

"humanity is a blur in the face of life"

you get this "aww" feeling when you look at this. Like after the show is over, and you are stimmied from it....I think that's the right word.......

what can i say? those strairs turn really nice on the upper part of the frame. its a gradual contrast change top to bottom, with the subject sorta running off the page as the lines suggest. really quite a kick ass photo.

Somebody mentioned "the human arena" is being portrayed here... that is what I see, too. The passion of one man is played quickly on the stage, and then he is "sans everything"... but the amphitheater does not disappear. + Fave.

great shot. the blur of the figure gives the image a wider range of interpetation. the lighting on the steps and the tone all give it an excellent atmosphere. a top job. fair dues.

very good photo and excellent capture of the scene geometry.
i would like it better if the focus were on the steps and not on the flat surface...

what shutter speed did you use?

Most excelent. Love the pic. The contrast, exposure, composition, all spot on. Have you tried doing a "grainy" version? Still sharp, but with a bit of grain to it? Just a thought.

I like the direction you are heading in with this shot. Interesting combination of line repitition and movement. I think it would have worked better in greyscale, but the idea is very good. Keep it up.
