Sometimes I wished I lived in a big city so I could capture shots like these. (A crowd here is like two people lol) My fave photos are ones that are able to single out an individual in a crowd - and capture that raw emotion in that moment. What I find really interesting is that everyone around him is dressed for what I am assuming is rainy weather. And here he has no umbrella or raincoat and even his hood is down. This is a very cool shot.

Love these blurry mess kinda things! Well seen to catch the one gent - gives a nice sense of the busy-ness of the city. Grain is just fine here, too.

The expression on his face really makes this one for me! Great capture.

I too am trapped inside so no shooting for me ... I commiserate with you.. but I digress... others have commented on the technicals so I will tell you about my feeling .. this shot makes me react strongly.. he seems so alone.. the composition works to emphasize that .. what an excellent job you did in isolating him, I wish I had you talent.

the hustle and bustle around him, the sharp focus on the subject - very good control of exposure to really give this shot a high energy feel - i can almost hear the cars, bikes and walkers going by

Face in the crowd! (There was a movie, with Andy Griffith before he became a fat cop or sheriff). Wonderful singling out.

Great dof, makes an outstanding image. Like the color, from the camera or post process technique?

This is terrific. The lone face amidst the bustling blur makes the shot -- but you knew that. Great colors too.

Really like this.. Makes me feel a part of the scene. Also like it that the guy who is in focus is unprotected by the rain.

Sorry, I haven't had a chance to try your excellent suggestions yet. This was taken (and processed) several days ago.
