There is something inherently pleasing about this photo, lighting, composition, grain (& voodoo?) combine to make an image I could stare at for hours. Fabulous. :clap:

Solid silence...I hate the loneliness and emptiness in the morning.Sometimes it's so hard to start the damn day you know...I've been in this picture many times,,

it's so so simple and pure, just like people when they're lonely...
very good...

cool shot....
The way the *person* or the *camera* is looking outside the window, concealed in a way because he's moved slightly away from the window reminds me of a murderer/victim situation, where the murderer is calmly assessing the situation, observing his victim and waititng for the right moment to attack...




I'm teeny bit psycho... ;)

Perfect timing. The composition BLEEDS a melancholy mood. The cup bugs me, maybe I'd have used a white mug....I guess it's just, when I first looked at it I couldn't tell it was coffee, it could have been grape juice for all I know....then again, maybe the cup SHOULD bug me and it wouldn't "look" cold if it were in a mug. Meh, point is, I love this shot, regardless of my inner cup/mug dilemma.

Wow, that's "real" art in my eyes... look at the simplicity but complexity of the tones.
I love black and white shots but have rarely seen a photo which covers so many tones:
From Dark to bright from medium to...

Very nice job, I enjoy!

Oo.. something about this makes my heart smile. I love it. I think the rain rolling down the window is my favorite part and how the car is kind of out of focus. Beautiful.

[ psst.. you should make this a print.. :-) ]

I fancy this a lot, the cup is positioned just perfectly to fit the photo, the rain on the glass adds to that dreary feel, and the perspective that you chose was superlative. Capturing the curtains in this was a wise choice and I think that they accentuate everything nicely. Looking down on the street through the window gives a sense of where the room is positioned and I like the vague outlines of the cars below.

Overall a lovely job. :blackrose:
