This is going to get hammered, but I haven't entered for a week and I just can't help myself. Shot with the LensBaby in San Francisco this week, and shoehorned into the challenge. Funny thing is, I like the shot, but I know DPC will hate it. OOF. Too Blurry. Use a Tripod. I can see the comments coming now.

It's a lensbaby people. Its supposed to be blurry. In fact, that's what I like about it ... it gives a bit of the feeling of commuters rushing to go home. My prediction: 4.2. Don't say I didn't warn me.

I wish you had chosen just one of the titles for the 3-word title as per the challenge description :-( That aside, your photo reminds me of a blurred photo that would have been taken in the early days of photography. I like the tonal values.

this is an interesting focal point; slightly abstracted because of the blurr - I hope you having 2 titles doesn't make people rate it low- I rather enjoy the fact that you did the 'think outside the box' thing and gave the viewer 2 options of 3worded titles :) goodluck! really cool image /effect :)

Not quite getting the hustle and bustle of rush hour feel from this. Maybe if the commuters had movement blur it might work better for me.

Prefer the blurry commuter title. Fantastic image. maybe a bit too much space on the right.
