I've passed this image up a couple time since I was undecided about it each time. I think that allow the DOF is good (actually, it could be a tad more shallow) and the lighting is fine, there's too much of the luggage taking up the frame, so it's hard for me to get a sense of the them being left behind. The way it's composed, it feels cramped, giving me more of a sense of urgency, rather than lonliness, i.e. luggage sitting there by itself.

An unusual photograph. Interesting, too ... in spite of the prosaic subject matter. The image stands out particularly well in this challenge because it's actually about something (i.e. it has a subject) and uses depth of field for effect, whereas all but a tiny handful of the other entries are about nothing, and use depth of field as the subject. 8.
