I like the image:
I like the composition of the massive concrete construction along with its texture and the single person contrasting with it.
But for some reason I have a problem with the lines / the perspective.
I am not sure if it is something not being orthogonal or some slight obliqueness which gets in the way somewhere,
but I can't get rid of the feeling something is wrong which needs correction.
Maybe a tech camera could have fixed that from the beginning and/or some change in the aligning of the camera with the construction.
I'd go there again and try fixing it and taking care the camera is strictly parallel to the construction,
maybe with a wide angle and cropping off something from the bottom.
But maybe I have just a bug in my eye.

I must have the same bug...I think its an optical illusion, but the image definitely looks both skewed (in multiple planes) and almost distorted in a "wavy" way.

Nonetheless, its great image

Steve, I think the shot is pretty well okay as it stands. If anything, it accentuates the mess into which we have allowed our lives to sink; harshness, solitude and general decay. Love it. As for going there with a movements camera, please! That's insane.

It's an interesting image. Going by your title, the focus should be on the person. I find that the long shot is great for context, but the person seems to get lost in the clutter.

You might consider cropping much closer, perhaps the last flight of stairs leading up to the person. I think you'd keep the feeling of industrialized isolation that is so much a part of the story here.

You bring up a good point. I usually don't like to title my images because that give the view a predetermind idea of what I was seeing.

Thanks for the comments,
