I have always been fascinated by this way of painting the light.
Feel free to share and stretch the concept.

This is a re-post of an older image, but I believe it fits here.

Fons, I have been very intrigued by this image. I try, a few times, to crop all or part of the two people on the right to isolate the brilliant left side, with the character, the light, the textures...but have failed to achieve anything better that what you present here. Lovely chiaroscuro.

  Akira, those lines give great graphic tension all around the frame.

Thank you Paco, for it to be a classic photo the two people on the right should no be there, but they are :)
