So much emotion by reading the body language: the slumped shoulders, head down, hands clasped...one can feel the despair. I really like the angles of the photo as well, the position of the stairs, and the horizon . This "minimalist" setting is got so much going on. Congratulations on your thought provoking and attention getting DD.
i've seen lots of conceptual shots but not like this, and having the person setting and not looking up and he's almost at the bottom of the stairs makes you think what in the world is he thanking and that makes for really good art. n....ice
