Not sure whether this has been done before. I like the idea a lot, but the front face is very distracting... Could you crop off about 1/3 of the left side of her face and get the same idea, but not as overwhelming? Just a thought...

a fun/interesting image, but I feel like you entered this just because you HAD it as opposed to planning out something in advance for the challenge

Seen stuff like this before, but I find this extremely well done. This is a tough one to make a vote on.

I love the face in the crowd but the out of focus face in the front left is distracting me away. My eyes don't know where to go.

The most interesting face is the girl in the foreground, but I love that she's lost a bit in the bokeh. If she had been the focus point, it might have been a bit too much.

comment only.

I do like people pics, is this unique because that group of people have never been seen on dpc before as street photography is popular here. This, is exactly why I'm not voting in this challenge, I like the action and colour you captured but I'd not say this was unique so would have voted it down (as I would most of the shots).

I'm not loving the foreground person being so much in competiion with the subject for viewing rights. I wonder if cropping it almost half out would have done the same thing and still let the subject have control over the image. (not voting)

very well seen. Love the colors, the focus, and the plain old feel of this gem. 8

Very interesting composition. My eyes cant decide between the strong (but OOF) expression, and the calm (but sharp) face.

Beautiful shot - I love the DOF in this one! Great Job!

This is a seriously good image - for me, one of the most inspired I've seen on DPC. The blurred girl in the foreground makes the image. I'd love to see a bigger version of this - might you submit it to 1x?
