All Alone

 

SIN'S STILL IN THE HOUSE!

Somewhere, in some village, in a little corner of this vast, vast world, a phone box awaits, standing all alone, abandoned, redundant. The awaited phone call never comes through, no lonesome traveller walks in for refuge. Misplaced, displaced, the phone bows watches the days go by. Days get longer and brighter, then shorter and darker; all the same for the phone box in its eternal wait.

Don't we all have days where we feel like this? Abandoned, redundant, all alone.

Wow! You're quick! I just commented on the last post, and I refreshed and this came up!

This is really wonderful. I love the colors and the way you composed this, both the photo and the words.

Very impressive picture! The red really captures your eye and creates a lot of attention. I love it!
P.S. Thank you for visiting and commenting on my Blog smile, I apreciate it.

Nice composition...good work here.

I would however have liked to see more life in the greens, your pp has rendered them black and lifeless, thus losing alot of life in the picture, as the greens ( complementary colour to red ) would have bought that extra life into this nice composition.
Suby & Sinem: The Skeeeee, wazzzzup? Suby replying here. Actually it was edited on purpose that way, the aim was to convey the feeling of " Abandoned, redundant, all alone". Actually there is an edited version with the greens and it looks too happy a picture smile Nope need to convey that almost sad feel with this shot. Thanks for the comments, you need to visit more often bro smileSuby

The lighting and colours look too unnatural for me... I think you might have overdone the processing. I like the way you explained the picture though.
The sharp saturation gives it a story book feel.

Love the way you did this one dude. Makes me want to place a call to an old friend or something. Great processing.

Hope the weekend was good for you and yours.....

The feeling due to the color cast makes it look a bit creepy.

Sinem, i like the fact that i took one look at this pic and i could tell it was your shot. You definitely have your own style (at least for now) - the softness and the greens. However, you've really outdone yourself and gone out of the box with your use of colours to create the contrast in this picture. the darkened grass / bushes, weathered bricks and the empty phone booth make this scene less idyllic and more lonely (which is why i suspect Lord Vader was lurking about when this pic was being processed) and makes it quite different from your usual dreamy pics, although it still bears your trademark. Very cool shot, me likey very much.

Great composition. I love the desaturation. The reds look a little too strong to me, but I quite like the photo.

It can't be used for phone calls anymore -- maybe an alterego for Dr. Who? Compelling shot.
Beautiful shot, Sinem! Excellent composition and nice comment.
Poor little phone box...
Lovely shot - well framed - although I think too much saturation - the red looks a bit wierd.
