long distance by kls long distance by kls
Some backstreets along Serangoon Road, saw the man talking on the phone, thought it'd make a nice expressive shot since it was on a b/w film.

Constructive comments and suggestions are always welcome.

- Nikon FM
- Kodak TMAX 400
- Photoshop 7.0 {border, touched up}

VERY clever, title and visual. You have a sharp eye attached to that active mind of yours.

I looove the irony in this. The fact that the guy is standing a "long distance" away and that phones are used to make " long distance" connections.. ARGH. I love it. :D


Good work m'dear.:)

excellent spontaneous capture...
i love, love, love the depth in this shot...and even moreso the fact that it's depth doesn't travel in a straight line towards the back of the shot but much rather, in a diagonal one :)

I really love cliche shots like this, with the ultra trendy monotone colors and the funky contrast. Great shot for sure

hehe thanks for the input man. yea perhaps it'd look different when its empty eh? should try it in the future, well for this, i just thought both of the would make a pretty interesting subjects given the distance between the stool and the man, plus relating the whole thing to the phone booths, thus long distance, hehe...

Well, I'm glad it wasn't your last photographical submission as you're pretty good at photography :D
Again, a really nice shot. I very much like the repetition and focus you've got here. Also the b/w with high contrasts make this look quite artistic. I like it :clap:

A great play on depth of field here, it's also nice to see that you've captured a subject (and that he is at the end of this row - perfect positioning). The converging lines and the curves of the booths make for an interesting photo. It would be neat to go back when nobody is there, maybe pull a couple of phones off of the hook, letting them dangle below - could make for a really cool shot! But anyways, I digress.

This is a great shot - love the fact that you've chosen black and white - I don't think anything else would have worked here, offers a nice contrast~
