Lonely at First Look - Assignment 2 results.

Published by தம்பி... under on 4:50 PM

Snip from the Wiki for Loneliness

Loneliness is a feeling where people experience a powerful surge of emptiness and solitude. Loneliness is more than the feeling of wanting company or wanting to do something with another person

 Loneliness is not the same as being alone. Many people have times when they are alone through circumstances or choice. Being alone can be experienced as positive, pleasurable, and emotionally refreshing if it is under the individual's control. Solitude is the state of being alone and secluded from other people, and often implies having made a conscious choice to be alone. Loneliness does not require aloneness and is often experienced even in crowded places. It can be described as the absence of identification, understanding or compassion

 Most of our photographers understood the feel of being lonely and did the best way to portray it ….Wonderful response from our photographers.

 Every photograph is portraying the loneliness in a different /unique way with author’s view…We thoroughly enjoyed this series of photo. 

This time we selected the first photo my using polling between CTC key photographers (10 member’s team).

Our Best selection goes to: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris1804/2358259478/

Some Comments abt this photo:

Bhagath     : Subtle feeling of loneliness. Nice colors. His facial expression is awesome.

John          : Good composition…Negative space had good impact on the shot. Straight to theme

Karthick    :  தனிமையில் நான்...ஆதரவாய் சிற்பங்களும் தூண்களும்...

Vikram      : Great colors and mood…It’s appealing …!
