You've got yourself a fantastic image here. The light/dark contrast is great, as is the pattern of the angles as it receeds deep into the photo. The shadowy person lends a context for the depth and gives the eye something to catch as it sweeps into the image. Well done. #481300

Thank you all for your comments, I'm very excited about my first nominations. But one quick point: My name is Tim. Victoria Harbor is where the photo was taken. :) #3229817

Hi Tim! So sorry about the mix-up of I live in Hong Kong too! #3229830

It's no trouble at all, Susana. You live in a beautiful city! This shot was taken next to the clock tower at the Star Ferry terminal on the Hong Kong side. I originally took it in color, but converted it to B&W in CS2 to fantastic results. #3229850
