How I did it

This was taken on a recent trip to Bilbao in northern Spain.  We had gone into a large public building in the city and I saw these internally illuminated rectangular blocks.  I thought they were part of an art installation but then these two people came along and sat down on them.  As they were both studying their mobile phones, it seemed to me to be typical of modern life that we are all physically close together but too much wrapped up in our own little worlds to look around and interact with those around us.  My image is intended as a social comment rather than something pictorial.  Shot on my Lumix G9 with the Leica 12-60 lens at 60 mm.  Exposure was 1/15 sec at f/8 with ISO 200.  Opened  and processed in ON1 RAW and then exported to Photoshop for finishing.  There is an interesting optical effect with the panels in the top left corner.  Sometimes they look like they stick out like small pyramids, and sometimes they look like they go inwards!
