Thank you for viewing the larger version
Another photo taken at Hua Lampong train station. A family's goodbye.
wasn't sure which version to upload... this one, or the cropped version in the mod section. Would love to hear your views on it. Thank you

Very emotive shot. Like this series a lot! - regards Robin
lovely shot, nice mono work.
very emotive.....a good one
my first reaction was..... the mod version but then is is difficult to see that we are at a trainstation so in the end I decided that the current version is best choice.
The bored expression on the little boy's face is priceless imo.
Several expressions in one shot priceless
interesting you perceive the boy's expression as bored Robert; to me it came across as sad (his big bro and hero is leaving).
Had the same feelings about the two versions btw
I think that this works the best of the two! Nice tonal range, nice image.
well, it seems we disagree on this.
If the boy is sad that his brother is leaving why is he then not facing him and enjoying evey last look of him?
Whereas if he is bored it is highly likely that he is scanning the staion for more interesting things to happen?
HE'S SAD AND WANTS THE FAMOUS HANDSOME WHITE PHOTOGRAPHER AND THE WORLD TO SEE IT !
he saw the photographer and thought that what he was doing is more interesting than saying good bye to his boring brother!!
Now you're talking :o)
Superb shot, love the tones in this
I love candids that have a story to tell. Brilliant work.
This is a nice shot Koen, has a fresh prosperous sort of feel, and I'm not quite sure why I have come to that conclusion? perhaps its the clothes the people are wearing or that in a lot of cases your pictures include many street people who operate at a different level???
your observation is quite accurate Pooch (at least as far as I can tell).
They seem like an average Bankokian middle class family. Both the young mother and father probably have a rather well paid job. the children probably go to 'better' schools, probably bilingual, and are destined to go to university later. Especially the mother has that - among Thai women envied - rather fair complexion, that you often see in middle and upper class. the clothes seem more expensive then usual and carefully tended (the little boys shoes). Even the body language (especially the mother's) has something more distinguished.
Only the 'older son' (don't really know if he is their son, but I guess he is) falls a bit out. But then I imagine him to go on a scouts trip (which would explain his outfit and enthousiasm).
If you compare the 500 version maybe the mod works better. But then you have the imporant large version, and I prefer the current pick!
Great scene you've captured..Guess everyone can relate too it. Superb shot
(thanks for the mod and funny comment on my last upload btw )
This really is a lovely picture Koen, maybe just a little picky but find that damage to the train on the far left a little distracting. Uploaded a mod.
Sory Koen just seen your Cropped version, think the original is a much stronger composition. Love it.
Thanks Tommy, Phil, Paul
As far as the boy looking away, that is what kids do. It makes complete sense that he would be upset and sad and is protecting his own feelings by looking away. Excellently expressive image.
Terrific, Koen ...
