It was a cloudy New Year morning at the Manila Bay. My youngest son was very sad coz his Mom is working abroad, my eldest is in the province during that time. Him and I only celebrated new year 08 together that's why he was so lonely that time.

Hope you like the mono. I appreciated all your approval and corrections in the past, today, and future.

Good day my beloved Artists and Mentors.

I may not vote to all of you today due of my slow computer, I will surely drop by each everyone of you and give my words and votes.

Would love to see it from the front angle sometime in the evening, with the lights lit.
Would also love to see your little boy with a lovely happy face, with his mum.....he looks so sad.

As the title: "Separated," If I didn't tell the story behind the expression of my son, anybody who see this image will think, that child is separated from other people. That's why I didn't removed those people. The image has double meaning.

Dennis, by placing your son in the corner you've obtained great composition in this shot. Love the strong shapes and dramatic looking sky. An all round great mono shot. Well done.
Take care.

I love the dramatic feel the mono gives this image and probably the colour version would not do it justice. Sometimes in a shame that other peoples feeling MAKE an image but credit to you you saw the potenial and took the shot, Least ways when mum came home she could see it to.
Keep on improving and you will soon be some-ones mentor

A good image Dennis but I agree it would be better to crop out the other people as they are somewhat distracting.Perhaps if you had you could have found a different title, but still a super picture and your work is improving already.

I'm trying to catch up after having been away for a few days. I like the way you have composed this, it really makes him look super alone.
As to suggestions, which I know you like, I would have tried to include the peak of the structure where your son is standing, and crop from the right up to the last structure to exclude the other people. Overall nice work, and I like the mono,.
