I thought this incredibly long line of people waiting for the bus was interesting. I utilized a layer mask of gaussian blur to draw attention to the girl at the front of the line. Maybe a bit excessive. I just thought I'd give it a try. I hope you like it at least.

Edit:
Tone adjustments and b/w conversion in LR3
Gaussian blur - layer mask in Photoshop

Thank you, all, and thanks Melethia for pointing out the thread!

I agree on the strength of the blur. It's only my second time using artificial blur in an image, and I didn't know how far to take it. I decided to lean on the artistic side, but now looking at it, I realized it's a bit much. In the future, maybe that knowledge will really help me out, haha.

Totally faked depth of field (I think!). But apart from that, a really nice idea / image.
