Just having fun. I'd be surprised if this breaks 4.5. At the airport, early morning (or late night). People experiencing soul delay share an unknown space with each other.

Greetings from the Critque Club

I am going to start out by saying NICE! I do like this photo for the grain challenge. The grain is there no question about it.

I personally like the color and effects here although I wonder if the yellow might have been just a little too much for some.

Your composition is very strong and you used the rule of thirds nicely here. Excellent perception as well you start out looking at your main subject and follow the lines to see even more. It just pulls you in very nicely.

Personally I wouldn't change a thing other than maybe processing the lines between each panel out to make a smooth image flowing from one side to the other.

A very interesting photograph. I love the idea of the virtually empty and almost entirely reflected scene, and the fact that the man appears to be holding a conversation with himself. And the strange, grainy tone you've used adds to the feeling of dislocation. 7

interesting shot, like the colour and grit, just would like the man a little more defined

Having spent what feels like most of the last week stuck in various airports across the world, this picture has particular resonance for me! I imagine it's very much like Schipol at 4:30a.m. which is a ghost town with just a few passengers trying to find somewhere to lie down, cleaners mopping the floors and noisy travelators carrying invisible hordes. You've caught the mood well..the feeling of half-life and isolation. Well done.
