    nice & sharp. I like the B&W, but am not fond of the composition. I probably would do a horizontal crop, cutting out all of the floor like this

    The way the new crop looks is that it plays with your eyes a bit, as if you're expecting another phone but it doesn't appear....

    The crop is too extreme. Crop somewhere between the two.

    yeah, but then you get a square picture, which looks odd with the shape of the phone booths.

    Yah I agree with the crop for sure. That was the very first and only shot I got to take because my bus came as I did it. Next time I'm there I'll shoot it landscape from maybe a bit farther back than the crop, and I'm thinking maybe from a lower angle as well? I mostly posted for the black and white treatment, the tones etc.

    The b&w looks good, but the picture looks so 'alone' and with that feeling, I think I might make the curves darker. Cut out some of that white and gray, just a thought. And I'm also leaning towards a super tight crop, like possibly lose part of the legs. Obviously with a larger original. Cool composition!
