    Important Phone Call

    I can't really explain why I like all of this empty space. It just seems to work for me. This picture just has a very modern feel to me. Comments welcomed.

    I certainly see what you mean, although personally, I'd take 7% off the width on the right hand side.

    He seems to be in a large sterile environment - very contemporary, as you say.

    Nicely observed and captured,

    There seems to be some variation in the background lighting so I suspect that helps this scene to work.

    Probably not quite so effective if the background was a uniform dull colour.

    Yes, the image gives a good sense of being out of touch with the physical world around him.

    Thanks Dave. I'll try your suggestion.

    Geoff, yeah, you're absolutely correct about the background. I like the variation in the background lighting. Seems less contrived to me.

    Bruce, thanks. Being out of touch and somewhat alienated is what I think I like about this image.
