I've wanted to enter a photo in 500px.com's weekly contests but I just haven't gotten around to it until now. I had originally posted this image a couple months ago and titled it "Timing is everything" but I feel it fits the "Standing Still" theme very well too.

This is a newly edited version of the image as well. I found that a lot of people thought the original image was B/W to begin with and once I started printing copies of it, I found that I liked how the gradients looked better when I took all the subtle color out of the image and just relied on B/W.

A lot of people have taken this similar image and it is fun to see everyone else's interpretations. I took this before really becoming interested in photography so it is fun to see that a lot of other great photographers had the same idea. Each version has it own subtle differences too!

I think the 500px blog should have a contest sometime where they ask people to submit their own version of the same classic view or iconic image. It would be great to see all the variations people come up with!
