I agree that the window in the background is a little distracting but I like the expression and can really relate to the situation. Done too many 14hr flights to and from home. Also I think that the boredom isn't the worst part of a long flight. I personally get really frustrated and snappy in the last five hours of a flight so I like the fact that your model looks almost aggressive.

Good idea! Your model's expression looks a little more serious than bored, but the context is great. I think just about everybody can identify with the situation. I'd expect this plane to land near the top, if not ribbon. 9

Very nice photograph. Very engaging with the eye contact of the subject in the foreground

b/w and a sleeping person in a background makes this an amazing photo

Obvioiusly no movie on this airplane....potentially boring situation.

Been there recently, technically done well, the light in the window is a little distracting.......6

haha, boy have I been there!

Great shot but I would have liked to have seen a less tight of a crop on her face, and maybe a tad bit more of a glassed over expression to really work the bordom angle.

Great composition, lighting, and contrast. I really do get the sense of boredom, yet the photo is definately not boring! GREAT JOB! 10

she looks ticked that you're taking her picture. background people look bored, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2005 04:18:55 PM
Actually, I find the background of this shot more interesting than the foreground. Too bad it's you she's bored with, huh?

You've managed to capture a genuine bored look and the B&W seems to work really well here. Nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

After all the over-the-top, melodramatic, face-in-hands pictures this one is refreshing. There's a quiet boredom in her expression that I like.

A shot in a plane is usually a hopeless snapshot. However, this is excellent and absolutely perfect for the challenge. Lighting is good and the framing excellent. Great stuff.
