Comments: dark union passage

Niiiiiiiiiiice.....a fantastic composition of a photograph. Gives me additional respect for the kit lens.

I especially like how everyone is darkened, but the one lady in white, who almost looks she is just standing there watching you take the photograph.

Nicely done.

Nice shot. I can imagine looking thru the passage from where u were standing when taking the shot.

Sorry to be boring, but...great shot!

OH YES! I really like this. In particular, the dark lines of the arched achitecture framing the image, the iPod ads down the left side, the lighting is great - I love how some people are silhoutted while others are not and best of all, the woman at the bottom of the picture with her swagger! Great all round image.

One of the best pictures I have seen on this Site!

I've been watching your work for a while now...
and since that last person who commented pointed that lady out... I noticed her too... it's kinda creepy looking actually. ha.

Very nice. Great symmetry and composition. And there's always got to be an iPod ad somewhere eh? haha

The B&W works perfect, giving it a very futuristic, alienated look. Big Brother is watching you (pun slightly intented as towards the new comments system ;) ).

Very cool.

I love this picture! It looks like something from the 1930s. The gridwork creates a great framing and atmosphere. Thank you for all your hard work. I'm sure posting every day is difficult, but your work is consistently high quality and a joy to see.

This is unbelievable. I had never seen the Union station like that. Awesome!

Posted by Riri at November 26, 2004 09:23 AM

Absolutely Fantastic.

Good use of the sqaure format on this one, works very well with the circular walkway. Also like the space in the upper left for magazine cover title, ad blurb etc.

This is one of my favourites sam. Great job.

this one deserves to be on the wall of a b&w exhibit. amazingly captured, this kind of photo will give no choice for trolls but to go somewhere else =)

OUTSTANDING! And, clean. You mean there is no litter on the floor.

Posted by Kevin at November 26, 2004 12:10 PM

Really, really stunning. Love it.

If itís true that we dream in B & W then this photo could be a dream. I like it, it looks futuristic.

Posted by Mike Hagarty at November 26, 2004 02:14 PM

Posted by fredrik at November 26, 2004 02:30 PM

SWEETNESS! Very nicely composed! :D

Posted by riff at November 26, 2004 03:24 PM

it reminds me of the movie, BRAZIL. "THIS IS INFORMATION RETRIEVAL!"

Posted by siavash at November 26, 2004 03:54 PM

simply one of your best photos recently

love the ipod ads on the wall!

Posted by Mohsen at November 26, 2004 07:18 PM

Good work Sam, but I must point out that this thread is missing the acidic commentary of a certain unbalanced ignoramus.

Posted by qoJ at November 26, 2004 10:38 PM

Just randomly found your blog,

very cool idea and amazing pics by the way :)

I can relate to this photo as I was recently in montreal this summer and took the metro @ night...kinda creepy

it also kind of reminds me of the train station in harry potter (perspective-wise)



Posted by Emily at November 27, 2004 12:35 AM

Great perspective and excellent exposure. Faultless.

Posted by Simon C at November 27, 2004 11:42 AM

definately printworthy. Someone commented on the beauty of the beams, the reflections are exceptional. The Ipod Ads, repeating themselves every 5 feet, great repetition. Perhaps a color version some time? I'd love to compare- there's no way someone could creat such contrast with a color shot.

Posted by moscon at November 27, 2004 01:59 PM

Excellent photograph, Sam. The highlights and shadows are superb. I'm glad to see your photography returning to more of a studied approach.

Posted by Alec Long at November 27, 2004 02:13 PM

Really nice shot. The 20D looks great at 800.

Posted by Eric Hancock at November 27, 2004 08:12 PM

Wow. This looks like a still frame from a Kubrick movie; perfectly in focus throughout the frame and exposure ranging from black to pure white.

I want to buy a print of this.

Posted by Winston Smith at November 29, 2004 11:01 AM

Awesome shot... damn nice...

Posted by bob at November 30, 2004 11:35 PM

well, I'm one of many silent addicts of this dose of imagery. This one broke my silence. Great job.

Posted by Shauheen at December 1, 2004 12:40 PM

Very quiet feeling... and lonely.
I want a hug.

Posted by Adem at December 13, 2004 05:38 AM

I saw this one from across the room and it actually looks like a backlit spiderweb with an out of focus foreground.

I think the second part of my comment got cut let's try that again:

"Image theft isn't cool. Sorry to hear you've gotten hit with it - lovely photo too, by the way.

Sorry for the double post (my computer's pretty wonky these days...)

Posted by oggi at May 5, 2005 06:58 PM

Having walked along this corridor with my camera, definitely regret not taking a picture now!

Great pic!
