    Long time no post, so here's a recent shot.

    It looks a bit staged but isn't, and shows my wife and two friends during our visit to the historic Southwell Workhouse, Nottinghamshire. They're not using their mobile (cell) phones, but each has one of those devices that play back recordings about each part of the site pressed to their ear.

    I thought the title might have been about Glenn Beck's show...

    Hi Tony,

    You're right, it does look staged but not in a bad way, more like a photo journalism style. There is great balance in this image. There are two points I'd raise however.

    It does seem slightly slanted towards the left but what is unusual here is that the vertical lines aren't slanted; I think the zoom distortion might be taking from the image.

    With the windows being as big and as bright as they are, and some subjects being in their light I'd imagine metering here was difficult; that being said the the leftmost subject is too dark for me, I'd say by at least 1 stop.

    Steve
