Writing out on his heart by reading...

I discovered love in this moment. The person and his surrounding and the writing on the wall.

Love the image and the wall phrase...
I wouldn't change a thing in this fine mono...

Brilliant shot! I love the writing and texture on the wall, it looks great in black and white. The stack of books on the left adds some nice context and helps to balance the composition. I have made a few small changes in my mod - cropped in a bit tighter, brightened the mans face and darkened the stack of books a bit. These changes were trying to put a bit more attention on the man, as I found that my eye would get drawn to the left a bit in the original. Having the man closer to the top right third of the frame and making his face brighter relative to the rest of the image make him a more natural 'resting place' for your eye.

I love this. Partly because I have a book problem too, parts of our house look remarkably like this except for the graffiti...

The composition looks so comfortable. The one thing that I found slightly annoying was that cut-off title top left, more distracting for being incomplete. Tom's crop deals with this. I also wanted to brighten a bit, which he has done. I would be careful of brightening the man's forehead though.

Those are minor quibbles. This would do well in the main gallery...

Shows that, with care, a phone can turn in some fine images. I do find the mono conversion just a touch heavy. I wold brighten and lift contrast just a little.

A well observed and taken shot.

Good feedback from Tom, Moira and Paul.
Those small adjustments show a big difference and make the most of the original capture.

Excellent shot, great subject, and good quality.

All good positive feedback. I agree with the idea that the man need to be a bit brighter to separate him a bit, and a crop to get his eye on a third will work. A slight rotation too perhaps.


Loaded a mod.


Regards

Possibly the best image I've seen from a 'phone.

And brilliantly seen. A perfect character, in a wonderful moment.

I'd really like a little more on the left, so that all of the books in the pile are visible. Starting from here, though, I'll crop more.

And, as others have done in their mods, I wanted lighter midtones.

Books matter so much: and they should be commonplace. Everyone should have lots of them, and read them...

A very, very good picture!

A case where the words tells the story. Great image and well captured.

Love what all the others have done, so I have gone for a closer, softer and more toned look. Something a little different to think about. Hope you like it.
