I used to rail against pictures of people in various poses with cell phones but they have become so ubiquitous it almost seems odd for one not to have one. That said this is brilliant

You have created a great effect here Vidau.

It fixes the viewer's gaze with the same strength as the subject's look.

The blackness and emptiness of (a)social media!

The surrounding darkness you applied here is apt.

For me, It emphasizes the solitude and selfishness we can sometimes have when we take up our phones.

The mobile phone (especially the Smart variety) is a great invention but also has it's downsides as your image, IMO, suggests.

Regards.

Kinda confuse at first when I open the tab, a blank black frame. Then I scroll down. Then I realize there's a man. in the photo.

Truly minimalist. great street photograph. But I feel like this ratio doesn't really work. For me at least.

Thanks for your opinion. I do not understand what you mean by "ratio"
