Hehe. I like the link between this one and your previous upload. Now Erich's shadow has company but he's still alone.

Love the addition of the ladys reflection, catching her looking adds even more, great vision Ollie.

Two's company, three's a crowd? The lady has spotted you, which puts her a little bit apart. Remarkable composition.

This does put Erich in a more hopeful light, partly because of the additional 'participant' but also because you have taken a step backwards to show more of Erich himself. Excellent.

Very well composed as usual Ollie, you really manage the evoke the sympathetic feelings of the viewer. 1st class.

very well timed, the addition of a further character in this scenario could have detracted, you have enabled it to add up!

The way of our society, easily alienated. Ron.

The third figure is the only one making a connection with the camera, which makes Erich seem to appear even more in a world of his own - isolated with only his shadow to accompany him.
Brilliant composition and image Ollie.

Had that feeling in the past, in a crowd but alone, weird feeling Ollie you have captured it well

Prefers this version in fact, more context, and a feel of the character disconnection with the context, and the context and human shapes so blured, that the character wouldn't even recognised them as mattering entities. Superb original way, visually, to express all that.

she is staring and he is not connecting and as said the focus is just in the right place

the shadowy figures add so much interest to this portrait...
