ooo, u've made me happy my dear friend..

the color and tile sizes on the wall, and then the color and tile sizes of the ground, his complexion, the shadow.....u get where I'm going - totally works for me...

I look at this picture and I want to sing "baby where you at" by Joe....they kinda look alike, or is that just me?
Jide Alakija: Ta.
love the colour and composition and light, awesome

I like this. It looks to me like the merging of abstract and physical both on the walls and then with the guy and his shadow. Hope you understand my gist smile Nice shot
Jide Alakija: Thanks Suru

nice one, beautiful sidelight
Jide Alakija: Thanks Gary
absolutely beautiful, the strength of colour on the wall and the stance of the subject make a really powerful image. I love this!

ooo la la... this guy is hot! Can we talk? lol

Oh BTW I love the wall color and love the shot, but I can see some white dots in the wall shadow...or maybe its just my computer
Jide Alakija: Can't see white dots! Thanks.
I like the light!
Jide Alakija: Thanks Martin
nice composition. The colors are nice as well, but the white dots on the shadow and jeans doesn't cut it for me, it looks like that came about as a result of your PP.
Jide Alakija: You know I can't see the white spots you and DamyB speak of. Thanks for the comment.

I love the shot, although the contrast is a bit too strong for my taste.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Urv.

I personally think its the contrast that draws you in. : ) You're curious to know who it is. I think there's a little too much shadow on his face but i like the idea. Definitely a CD sleeve photograph. Wouldnt go as far as saying CD cover though. fab.
