    Excellent. !!!!
    I would also love to see this with the left cropped off to just to the right of the bright windows, thus leaving the lighted ad guy the most apparent sign of "life" in an otherwise abandoned section of the street.

    eye2eye has a point ... the poster being the main draw it's a shame the lights from the shop draw away from it. Having said that, I'm consistantly impressed how you take a scene that I would walk straight past and find a photo in it.

    I think it would have been better if it had looked like he was actually using the phone and you were looking through glass :)

    love it, miss it
  • ribena PRO 10y

    like this one better. I want that warmth from the window, and the extra lacing of trees.
  • RezNyce 10y

    I like this one much much better.

    yeah, sometimes it is better to crop (i often find it hard to even think about cropping, but it's worth thinking about some of the time.)

    but in the case of the choice here, this wider one makes more sense to me. this one is more about the space as a whole than about the poster. (the cropped one isn't about the poster, either, but it brings it more into prominence than desired within the overall image.) the sense of depth is greater in this one, which lends itself to a sense of being alone, quietly observing. i think that it is closer to your intent when taking the picture. (that's how i read it, anyway.)
