** Greetings from the Critique Club **

Technically the colors are nice and vivid, image is sharp, and composed well. As for conveying feeling - it does not do that. I think the point would come across clearer if there were at least a couple people either walking past the bag, or peering out from the cafe, looking at the bag suspiciously. Your idea was creative, just needed a little more put into it.

no clue how the image fits into the topic of phobia

Would be better with people around. That way, there is implied danger. If that goes off in your picture, there isn't much danger. Just my two cents. Great idea.

Awesome interpritation of the topic. That fact that there are no people and no information on the screens adds a lot to the emotion? of the photograph

Good idea! I expect the security personel with bomb sniffing dogs to be on the scene soon. The yellow sign in the upper right corner is a bit blownout.

Don't get your point. Fear of leaving something behind?

The bag is so small in the frame that it took a second for me to figure out what was going on here. I don't know whether to be more frightened about the "bomb"" in the bag, or that you might have been arrested for staging this shot!

pre 9-11 I'd have given this a DNMC vote. BUT, in today's world I feel it is VERY strong! I'm giving you a 10.

great idea, and a pleasant one to look at too. Especially like the reflection on the floor tiles, and the colours. Might be better if focus can be sharper. The over exposed yellow sign in the back looks slightly distracting. 9
