This capture is OK. Honestly the lighting completely needs to be fixed..it's too bright. Maybe that's what you were trying to get at.

Ali,

I totally disagree with relative.

I think this capture is excellent and holds within it many scenarios. It is very creative for a change and is not a cliche or a seen before image.

Three may be identified: black, grey, white. They may represent a state of mind, an attitude, a belief, etc... Back to the picture, I like the angle and I like the position of the objects. The focus is clear; not only is it the bright glimpse of light that draws one, but also the converging lines and the whole perspective that dominates the picture; thus, creating a balance between the several contrasts seen.

I just really like the negative/positive aspect of this picture, and the bit of gray.

It's all the darkness of the foreground objects against such a stark sky and lighting that make it work for me.

If ever I'm in Chicago for a weekend, I'll find out if you have an exhibition and I will be there.

Like Eric, I have a real affinity towards photos that illuminate the negative and positive space. I think the blast of light central to the photo really helps to create nice negative space.
