Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Street Photography (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Flinders Street, Melbourne Australia
Date: Feb 19, 2007
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/160
Galleries: Candid, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Feb 18, 2007

Took this candid at the Flinders Street Station in the mornig as people went to work. I just kept crossing the road and weaving in the direction of the oncoming rush of people. I ended up with some interesting shots. This one had the look of a race and who was going to get to the other side first. Used an ultra wide 10mm lens to get the wide distortion which I like.

Basic editing including duotone, dodge and burn and sharpen, nothing major here.

I reckon it will either do well around 6.2 or really drastically around 5.5...hoping for around 6

POST: Well this was beyond my expectation, so thanks everyone for the great comments and votes. I loved this challenge...

Nice dynamic shot. Too many in this challenge have 'extras' cluttering the background. All these people make the shot in this case.

02/25/2007 05:05:06 PM
This is cool! Love the tones - Excellent shot!

bumping up a point

cool shot. wish you had waited for them to get a bit closer to you, so we could become more attached to them individually.

GREAT CAPTURE! Love the blank expressions on all their faces.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 10:30:38 AM
Wonderful almost distorted sense of it. Love the movement. Makes me think of an older time with the sepia duotone. GOOD stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 09:47:28 AM
I love the perspective. And the movement is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 09:32:15 AM
Enjoy this frontal pov.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 07:00:11 AM
Good POV and great execution, like the tines here. Though you could have improved this dramatically by cloning out the overhead wire mesh as that is a major distraction from the otherwise excellent image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 09:48:04 PM
nice timing - the distortion is great too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 08:10:21 PM
Brilliant wide angle. Love that the most prominent all have their right foot leading. What a fantastic moment in time this is :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 06:33:28 PM
I like the angle and the framing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice, Every Person going the same way and fanning outwards providing a nicely enthralling perspective.

This is fantastic, great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 03:12:33 PM
Powerful energy in the movement in the people...great shot. I just hope you got out of the way before they mowed you down!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent wide-angle shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 11:24:12 AM
i like the title, pretty cool composition with all these people radiating out from one source.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 11:18:19 AM
personally, I don't care for the fact that the folks on the left are more distorted than the folks on the right ... gives the image a lopsided feel to it ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 06:55:30 AM
lol they are all crossing in the same direction, I don't know if I've ever seen this happen. Very nice image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 05:35:16 AM
I like this angle and distortion! nice tones, too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 04:52:11 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
