This is my second posting of the MTR station at Tiu Keng Leng - but it was actually the first photo I took.
I had to take this shot quickly, because a train had just come in and a large crowd of people were leaving the station. A minute later the station was completely empty.
Tiu Keng Leng is one of the newer stations on the Mass Transit Railway and so I was quite surprised to see the new style of phone boxes.
Tech: Cropped around the photos. Resized and sharpened. Added black border.

Nice shot, I like the geometric composition and the optimistic colors of this piece of urban design. It looks very clean, almost sterile. Excellent sharpness for a handheld shot at 1/6 seconds, you must have a very steady hand.

I love seeing other countries public telephones, and you've done a great job of displaying these phones in an artistic fashion. The colours are great. Well done.

Probably not very quiet place to call somebody. It's a nice picture colorfull and nice graphism.

As Roly notes, you must have a very steady hand for this shot, Andrew. The composition is ideal and the symmetry amazing. You have taken what most people would view as a mundane, ordinary scene and turned it into art. Very well rendered.

A perfectly arranged telephone boxes caught really well considering the hurry you were in. A neat compo with no cluttering with good orderly subjects caught nice and sharp.

I really like the repetition of the telephones and the domination of the green. Its a great simple and geometric composition.

Nice graphic effect ! I like the perspective of the phone boxes and the way all the lines cross each other on this picture. Well seen and done ! Thanks for sharing ;o)

Nice, clean shot, Andrew. Beautiful green color. It's done in such a way, with that clever title, that these objects take on a life. Can't say better than that! Cheers, Francis

Maybe a very simple picture but with a lot capacity, excellent perspective also the green colour on the background are very attractive for looking, the four telephones above are a nice detail.
Thanks for visit.

A well-spotted repetitive photo opportunity, Andrew, resulting in an artistic and creative presentation of these phone boxes. Quite design-ish and modern looking. It might be possible to crop it a bit tighter at the left without sacrificing too much of the graphism. Good job.

Nicely observed reprtition you've found here for this graphic result. Good shot.

A fine and funny composition - I like the mix of colours and lines - the first phone seems to be inteded for "small" people - thanks Andrew - a fine job.

Nice lines, graphic and repetitive pattern Andrew, good angle and nicely framed, we can't miss it with this background :-) Well seen & done.

Waouhhh, very graphic, I like this.
Nice POV and framing.
Very good idea and realization.

Hi Andre, what a clean shot, the surroundings almost look a bit sterile. I like the repetitive pattern this way, and I would'nt object some more. You PoV is nce this way, and the green is a nice, fresh color.
kajenn (2426) 2005-06-11 14:43
I remember your previous shot from this MTR station, Andrew, and once again my attention was called on by the green - almost fluorescent and very clinic - color. The repetitive pattern of the phone boxes were a part of that image and here they stand 'on guard' by themselves and nobody around. The only sign of a human touch is the left receiver not hanging absolutely straight. So this is still a bit intimidating, almost like exhibits from another era - past or future... Very well done!

I remeber the first photo of these public phone row, and I like this one as well. The green color is very attactive, and the composition is very graphic. I like it very much, Andrew.
