I'm asking myself, how you can get so beautiful color and contrast with your camera...

With regard to this piece's title... have you read the poem "The Great Figure" by American poet William Carlos Williams? This image reminds me of the imagist quality of that gritty poem... also the poem features a bright number "5" on the front of a firetruck screaming through a dark and rainy night. Just thought about that.

I have been following your photolog for a while and really like you work. This last photo just left me speechless. It's amazing how much you convey through what most people would find banal.

Thanks all! As for color and contrast... I adjusted the Levels in Photoshop as the original was a tad hazy... sometimes color and contrast aren't great with the S400 initially... or I need to practice with it a little more! This is truer to what I actually saw, though. :)

I'm glad to see your new years resolution wasn't "I must stop taking such great photos". Always a pleasure to drop by.

wow, this shot is beautiful. The color and contrast is perfect. the oldness and antiquity that it gives off makes it so interesting. another amazing image!
