I like it. But is anyone else getting the feeling this is slopping from the left to the right. Is it an after effect from my weekend or is anyone else seeing that. Maybe an optical illusion ?

Still an interesting self portrait. Very urban cool.

Mike,

I like the feel of this shot... BUT! Why'd ya cut his feet off? Odd crop. Closer or one step back.

the lot is slanting, it's a multi deck lot and each level slants a little when going up to the next one.

i didn't mean to crop part of my foot off but i was running over to get in place with the 10 second shutter release and didn't place myself perfectly.

Thanks for all your comments!

I like the original better as well. The only thing that's a little distraction are the crop and the van/truck in the upper right corner.

It is slanted a little (about 10px higher on the left following the line where the wall meets the surface). I like the overall dark and mysterious feel to this one though,

I like the original as well. As stated the foot crop is akward. I like the van. leave it. It makes it like you might get kidnapped or hit by the mob. Mysterious.
