"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Chris Pereira from San Francisco, California, United States

wow this is absolutely beautiful, is this CDG? I've always wanted to fly through there just so I can go through the terminals. I absolutely love airports. I'm the kind of person that gets there three hours early so i can roam around with my camera.

@Chris Pereira: i really cannot remember. maybe it is CDG!

Monik from PARIS, France

La lumière met bien en valeur le personnage et la composition est bien gérée. J'aime beaucoup l'impression de fébrilité qui semble animer le personnage, juste avant l'embarquement!

Göran from Skanör, Sweden

Astonishing depth of field with f/2.8. It works very well, the interest is concentrated on the man with the mobile phone and the back-ground tells the story.
