I really love this shot, great composition, fantastic example of 'street' photography! (Well, airport then).

Competent composition but formulaic and lacks personality/soul. What are you trying to convey?

If I'm trying to convey anything it's just a photographic comment on how people pass time when waiting. This old couple were sat away from the main throngs of people in the shops, food bars and commercial area of the airport. Completely on their own they stood out against the large window and I felt it made for an interesting composition.

My photography is eclectic and done purely for pleasure. It is not for commercial gain or news reporting and like many on here I post my images just for fun and in some cases interesting comment from others opinions that may help me improve my picture taking.

How would you put personality and soul into an image of this type? Or are you just suggesting it was a waste of time to make the photograph in the first place?

Beautifully, and very carefully composed, plus some thoughtful processing to get the rectangles spot on. You have the couple nicely off-centre, with a glazing bar dividing them rather than growing out of someone's head... The bottom of the window falls pretty well on the third (sometimes the rule of thirds does work...), the reflection in the floor is the finishing touch.
It conveys the sense of limbo that these places have, the feeling of being trapped and stranded until unseen managers decide that we can move on.
I sense that you took your time - there's no need to hurry a shot like this, after all, they are probably stuck there for the next hour! This sort of take does need patience and observation. I really covet this one.

Great image and very well captured...........Grin
I love the composition and the reflection which gives that added 'extra' to an already awesome photo.

What a beautiful shot and composition. It is a shame however for the distracting mark on the shiny floor just at the bottom of the frame! I wonder whether it could've been easily removed or maybe crop the photo to eliminate it altogether.

Other than that, this is really a lovely unbalanced composition; simply brilliant!
