There's a certain light that occurs at sunset in late October. It's as if light is bouncing off the clouds and lighting everything from above. The world around you seems to glow. I haven't really caught that here, but I tried.

Still, I like the composition and balance. I like the way the black ladder stands out at first, and then later on the white fire escape pops out. The way the darkened windows glow like embers.

this picture is wonderful. its very simple, but there is so much voice in it. i love the colours, and the lines in it. but most of all, i love the way you described every bit of it. you are a true artist. i look at this picture and see it plainly. you look at this picture, and see everything. im slightly jealous, i will admit, but mostly in admiration.
