I took the subway to go to work when I saw this woman texting on her cellular waiting the subway train. I can't said why but I saw this behavior so many times without asking myself questions that I took this scene so familiar to all.

Hope you will like the composition that will remember this familiar scene that we all saw one day

Hello from the critique club

An intriguing image that contributes well to the free study challenge

Your commenter has identified where the strength in your image comes from, it is the simplicity of the scene. As you say, a common everyday scene that is easily discounted but readily appreciated in a straight forward simple shot like this. What works really well for me is the lighting, I donít know if you have used vignetting to create the effect or if this as you saw it but it does feel like a simple overhead light sufficient to light the woman alone so because of that it works well to add impact to the end result. The only thing I am a little uneasy about is the wall itself it feels unnaturally soft and unreal but perhaps that is how it is. Anyway, well done Marcel.
