This is such a cute picture - love the angle. It makes me laugh to look at it! Candid shots like this are so great - I love looking at them. This is one of the best I've ever seen. The title is really excellent. I think I'm a Gadget Gal - I never go anywhere without my Palm TX - I can check my score on DPC everywhere I go with the WiFi connection!

Funny shot. I like the composition. It might benefit from a little more contrast.

A classic moment. There is usually a little cluster of nicotine addicts huddled outside the door of many public buildings, desperately and pathetically feeding their habit. These gadget guys are the next wave, and for the same reason ... we will soon banish cellular phones from use in enclosed public spaces, because we will have had enough of intrusive passive phone calls. So the cellular addicts will have to gather outside the door in desperate, defensive little groups. There won't be a turf war over doorsteps, however; the smokers will all soon be gone, one way or another.

This is a terrific example of good street photography; clever, candid and steeped in allegorical possibilities. (Nevertheless, some poor soul will still tell you that you should have cropped differently, or taken the shot from a different point-of-view, or on a Tuesday. Bah!) Bravo! 8.

Scenes like this really make me laugh. I bet at least one of them hasn't got a clue how to work them! :P

Nice idea however, the pipe on the left either needs to be cloned out or soften or something. It is distracting as are the spots on the ground and the engraving in the stone on the wall.

Yep, synchronize your cell phones! Humerous. Good capture. Hope you do well.

well.. I really don't know what to say.. even though it's kinda funny to see old geezers comparing phones, I really doubt this is your best picture from 2005.

compostion is bad, the main focus is on the phones, and they are dead center, and most leading lines in the image point to the center, so a really tight crop to put the phones on the 2/3 line would really help this image.

only a 4.. better luck next time...

On my monitor at least there seems to be an overall greenish colour cast to this image, unfortunately.
