So surreal in a sens, beeing in a middle of a town, street... with ice skates... the mono adding confusion... snow/ice turn grey like concrete... well done Ralph !

David from Detroit, United States

I love what you did with perspective. The foreground is strong in today's shot, as in yesterday's photo, but again the strong verticals in the background make for a balanced composition. Very nice.

Clean out the guest room Ralph, I'm coming to stay with you awile so you can teach me your technique.
Of course I'll wait till it's a little warmer and all that snow is gone.

A very compelling black & white. Excellent detail and composition. So much to invite and hold the eye - and then pull us back for even more. Very well done, Ralph.

Reno from Madrid-Paris, Spain

Yes, David is alright, a perfect composition playing with the vertical lines of the buildings and the two first boys and apertures between them.

Great processing in this B&W HDR. I love the "very pronounced" architectural detail captured in the building on the center left. A nice place for ice skating.

Excellent street photo. I like how you put that guy in focus, and my eyes are directly drawn to him. Things seem to move very fast around him. Nice perspective and processing as well.
