This guy was sitting on the steps under the statue of Eros at around half nine in the evening; the harsh light to the left is from the Trocodaro, which is the famous set of electronic billboards near Picadilly Circus

As always, comments are welcome, particularly those offering feedback and criticism on my images! (It's the only way I'll learn!) :)

The bright light on their faces make it appear as if there is a supernatural sight they are all looking at. Very nice. B&W.

@Denise: Thanks Denise

Florence from Paris, France

B&W suits well street scenes however here I would have liked to see less contrasts (1600 ISO ! That's a lot !)...

@Florence: Had to be that high, as you can see, even with an apeture wide open, I was only getting a speeD OF 1/40s. Any less and I would've gotten alot of blur, and I didn't want to use my flash
