Taken on Saturday in Cardiff. I think the shadow includes a bit of a street light. I toyed with the idea of removing the street light but it would no longer be an as seen candid.

Fascinating as to how they do it. Great candid capture. Perhaps you should have waited until Saturday to upload Wink

Excellent shadow Ken, even with the street light! I do prefer the mono but the colour version also appeals.

glad you left the shadow in Ken the lamp post shadow looks like his seat, the mono seems to fit the character well i also like the colour as it shows more detail in the work he has done to achive the the look of the cloths.

Excellent in mono, and the shadow implies a seat which isn't there. Very good visual conundrum.

Great image Ken, I like the mono bestGrin These invisible seats are fascinating aren't they?
I am not saying the shadow should be removed but why would it no longer be seen as candid? I am intrigued.

What a complete and utter waste of time - being a human statue I mean, not taking pictures. Grin I think this'd look good as a square with just the bottom shadow. In b/w of course. Smile

The colour version just edges it for me Ken, the streetlamp on his back in the shadow makes him look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame or erstwhile England footballer Peter Beardsley!Grin
