Very good... the picture is well taken, centered (I think it works best in thumbnail), and of course sepia was an excellent choice.

But, like ~Daax, what "captured" me most was the whole significance behind it. I'm a big fan of urban photos, of capturing the daily-life of people going to their jobs, meeting with friends, going out at night, etc.

Keep up the good work :woot:

P.S. i think i'll watch you :gallery: very closely

This is a great picture. Really like it! :clap: The sepia chosing really suits your thoughts and feelings about this one. (did you take it in sepia the first time or did you apllied a filter later?)
I't curious that the client looks like a figurine from another season... than the buildings back there... are you sure you didn't time travel to take this photo?! ;P =D (this effect is more pungent in the smaller view)

Thank you very much fact I agree with you, it seems like the client was put there, like he doesn't belong there. About the sepia , yes, I took it in sepia, I didn't treat the photograph after. It is just as it was taken. Thank you once again.. *

não fosse este homem, muitos homens teriam feito má figura no emprego, soldados teriam sido repreendidos pelas botas mal engrachadas, estórias do antigamente que esta imagem me trouxe ao pensamento... reminescências, como dizes. boa foto ;)

Mto obrigada..
Sim..É verdade
O senhor por volta da hora do almoço está sempre no martinho da arcada, no terreiro do paço.
Ele sim, é um emaranhado de historias, daí ter sido escolhido como grande foco de atenção para merecer uma fotografia.
Thank you for the comment, DANKE
