Sitting at the train station trying to do something imaginative on the way home, put camera on bench and framed a chap waiting. An experiment. 4 sec @ f16 ISO400 40-150mm@40mm

its a good idea and more effective than it would have been taken in daylight.
i like the way you have framed the figure within the structure of the bench,
not sure about the sign above the figure, may be better cloned out or cropped down.
i think its worth playing with this idea, you could be on to a winner, it looks as if you have also caught a train zooming through and maybe on a different occasion you could adjust the position of the camera to make more of this in the frame
Well its better than framing a chimp I guess! I like this shot enormously and picking up Phil's note the way you have used the bench arm to frame the guy makes this really quite a powerful shot IMO.
I think there is just too much bench fg though and parhaps think about a crop at the break in the pattern. The sign is also a bit of a challenge but it helps to build the context for the image I suspect.
Not too bad for a philosopher...
Not much I can say that has not already been said very well except to say I like this a lot. - gary
Thanks to you all, I wait there most days so will try some variations.
For me this is a brilliant picture because of the angle it's taken at,and the subject matter.Very well done.
This ticks a lot of the right boxes for an experiment !
I like the signs "help" juxtaposition with the guy seemingly on the phone , leaving the viewer to interpret this stark [lace.
As the location has a lot of graphic lines and chaotic shadows , you might want to try an experiment in monochrome and enhance the atmosphere.
I did a quick and dirty mod that attempts to remove the somewhat distracting sulphorous light , corrects your angles (it didnt seem "dynamic" enough a tilt to be effective) and crops the foreground distraction as mentioned.
Subjective stuff , just a thought.
Thanks Dave, that gives it a nice French detective film quality - grit and mystery.
Hello, David, so glad this has received positive comments, because I think it's an excellent idea and really like the framing provided by the bench and wall, as well as the contrasts of gold and black. Imaginative indeed. I've done a quick modification where I straightened the image using the line of the bench seat, cropped it, adjusted highlights and shadows and added a touch of contrast. I cloned out just a few spots/highlights, too.
it already had the atmos
Really my cup runneth over ...
