Life Choices

Life Choices

Saturday night, two lonely gents meet, probably the only conversation
theyve had all day. As it nears shut tap, the elder of them counts his money
to see if hes got enough for another half. The decision is his.
A real life drama unfolds....................

This is also a 2 second exposure at iso 100 so this should tell another tale.
Sat staring lifeless:-(


other sizes: small medium original

Amazingly emotive shot..... I don't want to end up like this :-(

Great study. It is telling that you had a 2 second shutter speed and that the shot is nevertheless tack sharp. Evokes a sadness.

! Yes a masterpiece, down to the perefctly placed glasses, still full and being drunk as slowly as possible. You are truly gifted. K

Really a bit sad isn't it?
Wonderful composition and terrific tones in this one Ade! vote~

Magic photo, it suggests so much about these two fellas...and the humdrum life you can sometimes get down at the local. It's very melancholic.
But having seen the menu at the back, what I want to know is whether he's trying to scrape together enough for a bottle of Moet?

That's the good thing about not taking it cold!
2s. These two guys had to be very steady. Interesting study of real life, Ade!

This is a very strong image and the tag line adds even more support to this. ~V

The only concern I have is that you are in a pub at closing time
and still able to hold a camera still for 2 seconds…

…..Is Welsh brew that weak these days… : )

An amazing shot - the sepia makes it a classic...nicely done.

Closing time - time for you to go out, go out into the world.
Closing time - turn the lights up over every boy and every girl.
Closing time - one last call for alcohol, so finish your whiskey or beer.
Closing time - you don't have to go home but you can't stay here.
