grand central station in new york city, actually shot a bit before rush hour started. definitely fits criteria of a particular period, region, and environment (okay, off-subject interpretation, long title . . . i can't wait to get my '4'!).

I agree, a 4.2??!! It's a great shot and since humans ARE animals, in my opinion it does fit the challenge. It's different and refreshing as well.

4 is very harsh here!! It's a beautiful shot and for the record received an 8 from me. Keep on pushing that envelope! ;)

To much going on!

Cool motion pic, for that part you've done very well. Even though humans are animals, this does not work for me as a fauna challenge subject. For a motion, or city life type challenge, I could score this very well. 6 is about the top I can go for Fauna. Rob the Swash

04/29/2003 02:01:25 PM
nice idea of the motion

Fauna ????

Horrible creatures

i like the idea of using a long exposure, it adds to this images tone, the sunlight coming through the center window balances this image, good job

I din't believe this is what the challenge was all about.

very well done, I really like the effect you got using a slow shutter speed. Definately shows the daily commuter.

Very cool picture. A bit overexposed. Could use some adjustment in the brightness/contrast area to allow the people, objects and color stand out more. The bright light coming in the window is a little too bright and distracting, but maybe the adjustments would fix that some...or could crop it out. This picture really shows a lot of activity and you portrayed it well. I love your title, even though it's a little long. I really like this picture, but, although humans are mammals, I have a hard time fitting them into fauna. Picture-wise, it scores high, in my opinion.

how many seconds did u use? try counting the people who arent moving : )
04/23/2003 07:45:01 PM
Really good photo, but doesn't fit theme.
04/23/2003 07:03:51 PM
Original subject matter. I think you would have been better served to put more focus (by this I don''t mean in-focus, i love the movement) on the people and less on the architecture.

I guess I knew I would see something like this, great photo, wrong context, great title.
04/23/2003 12:35:52 PM
Hope you don't get too harshly treated on the 'not fauna' front - though you're risking it! Nice shot - no criticisms (well, maybe it could have been busier to fit the title?)

Creative take on this subject. I hope you do well, this is a beautiful shot. One of those things on my list of pictures I'd like to take someday. The thing that really makes it extraordinary is the figure stading still towards the center of the image. I also like the title you chose - I hope people will accept people as "fauna" and rate this for the great shot that it is. 10

good title

This image gives the viewer a sense of a busy, fast paced society.

Really cool shot, but the title isn't too good (too long). What is really interesting about this shot is the guy in the middle who is perfectly still with the others around him that are moving. Like to know the apprature and shutter speed you used because the lighting is perfect. 8.

The photo itself is interesting, a bit too much light in the center but the mostion of the people is really well captured. As far as the theme, I'm gonna have to say a big "nope" from this corner!
