It's very "Bradburyian" i love it. The zone plate treatment really makes this image in my opinion.

Thanks for all the encouraging comments.

A bit of Happy Accident here (for which I am always grateful). I didn't anticipate the shape of the figure's "head" (backpack). At first I thought it might be too strange -- then decided it was just strange enough.

Chris - Everyone else has said what I can say about this image. I just want to say that your images speak to me more eloquently than any other zone plate images I have seen. You have grasped this method of image making by the tail and looked the situation squarely in the face and have come out smiling. Keep making pictures.

Amazing photo...

Every time I come back to read comments I love this photo more and more.

Outstanding. To me there is an interesting play going on. There are some relatively crisp lines, like the ring around the light and the lines on the wall that play against the softness of the figure and the larger soft areas. I've just started messing with zone plates and this is inspiring. Gallery material for sure. Thanks

I am not often snifing around this zone plate section, but seeing you gallery, I am amazed by what you do with this technique. Wonderful images!

Thanks again for the encouraging comments.

I continue to be immensely intrigued by the zone plate. The image it produces "speakes to me" like no other in my many years of photography. That some of my efforts are appreciated by fellow photographers is very satisfying indeed.

Quite sensational, its like a view through contact lenses on a roasting dry summer day, full of the feeling of relentless heat and yet at the same time, retaining that sensual vibrancy of being a laid back spectator in the urban summer sport of people watching
