Thanks for the very nice comments everyone. This was taken in Chinatown in Honolulu. Sundays are always busy here so I stood on one side of the crosswalk and shot a bunch of shots everytime the walk signal flashed 11 seconds. This is the best of 5 or 6 rounds of crossings.

Yeah, I cropped out some of the left side and wanted to crop out the person on the left. The shot just ended becoming too square because I didn't want to lose any more of the top or bottom.

Here's an outtake from that day.

Great timing. This could be titled x + 1 where x is the number left after cropping out the excess, excluding the woman in red = the 1.

It took me a while, and then I saw it because I looked at the image before reading the title. Nice work with the value scale and, also, the muted colors to the vibrant color of the dress. I really like this piece. Wonderful sense of chaotic movement, and then the direction ordered by the crossing sign. Well done!
