Too dark, no faces seen.

I would love to see this photo edited so that more of the dynamic range was expressed; I like the idea of a sort of almost-indistinguishable sea of people. (Kind of like the Poe story The man in the Crowd.) I think much could be done with curves and levels to improve it. I also thingk it might look good in B&W or duotone. As it is,it is too dark and blurry, even if that is the intent.

I think this is the tops of people's heads, but it's so dark I can't really get a feel for what it is, or if there's any bokeh at all.

Love it !!!

A bit too dark overall and there really doesnt seem to be a main point of interest.

I like the idea...but too dark.

I donít get it. Is there a subject in this photo? How is bokeh used to enhance it? The photo is under exposed.

Too dark to tell what the appeal was when you made this image.

too dark to really find any detail or focus on the shot

I like what you are trying to do here. If only it was a little brighter...
