Bon jour Philippe,

Very interesting. I like it because of it's simplicity and question "well OK
who left the chairs?" 


But do you know what? I'd like it a whole lot better if you had bent your
knees and squatted down rather than tilting the camera down!


If you look at the buildings in the background they are distorted and all
bend outwards! Yes I know I'm knit picking and it's hardly noticeable. 


However as simple or knit picking as some may think my comment is, I'm
explaining the difference between doing it absolutely correct in camera
handling as a skilled photographer or looking like a rookie!


I always check the sides of the viewfinder to make sure the building
vertical lines are straight and not tilted as we see them here. It only
takes a second as a quick scan of the eye around the frame to make sure
everything is straight.


It maybe a small inconsequential item in the eyes of some, however it's the
difference between doing it right or half assed! Or maybe to be more polite,
not perfect! 


Other than that it's an interesting photo and as someone asked. "I wonder
what it would look like in B&W!" Hey and there aren't any people, so it
might make an interesting "art photo."
