  1. Well! This is a very dramatic shot. Even though the man stands out in his blue shirt and red tie, it is the shadows on the wall that really make the picture. It is a fantastic combination of architecture, striking graphic lines and shapes that draw us in and make it difficult to leave. The angled lines on the right of the frame are seriously impressive, but I also really like the shadow of the chimney on the wall in the left of the frame too. I am generally not a fan of spot colour – images turned black and white with only a tiny area left in colour – but here it works very well indeed as it is quite subtle. The toning given to the monochromatic areas is cold and haunting – and appealing – and makes the human figure stand out more from the powerful backdrop. What a great picture! Well done. A worthy winner.

    Congrats. Tough competition between your striking image and gxcol entry. This would make a great large print.

    Cracking shot Eddy and congrats on the win. The inclusion of the figure with the splash of colour works a treat, giving it a sense of scale and reinforcing the greyness of the architecture.
