Very well seen, Malc. It's the juxtaposition that counts 🙂

Very well seen and taken.

"Self-praise is no praise at all" Well spotted the tie-in with the man and sign, and managing to get them in the right position to each other

I hope he doesn't go broke. Business owners are finding it tough these days. Thats a very steep looking escalator. Great candid.

Thanks for the compliment, Malc Wink
A well composed and caught candid, at least he's not "on the phone". looking for longer, I wonder could it be squared off to lose the left side and right edge? thus isolating that precipitous escalator and the cool dude.

You're welcome, James.Wink
Good suggestion - I'll have a look at the possibilities of a crop - thanks.

Well seen Malc, I would agree with James ref a crop from the left and who put that post right infront of the escalator ? !!
Hi - I'm not normally into street photography. This is great, love the mono, shows the times we live in with a great story line, and the signage too. I'm not sure if you are a purist - for me I would crop to the left; up to the escalator line, crop to the right; up to the first post and a little of the bottom; minimal, I find myself distracted by the different objects - as this is mono - it highlights the lines and shadows etc - while I really want to just look at the story - absolutely great capture. Hope you don't mind my comments. Smile

Hi Yvonne - pleased that you took the time to comment - it shows that the image interested you, so thank you for that - and for the UA, much appreciated.Smile
I have looked at cropping and see that a crop removing the area to the left of the escalator would clean it up, but removing anything to the right or to the bottom was too restrictive, I found. I want a bit more space than those crops gave. Thank you for the suggestions, though!
Your very welcome, its always work trying a different approach sometimes - super shot. Smile

Is that the engineer with the instruction manual...
of course not, men don't read the manuals.
