I meant to come back after the voting was over to congratulate you on this image. I was disappointed for you that it did not score higher. I was one of your 6 10s. Ubique's comment is perfect.

ETA, I just read some of the other comments, and totally agree with Melethia. Had you cropped the guy on the left out, this would have been a totally different image and not nearly so good.

Just pure, beautiful light, made more special by the point of view relative to the people in it, and then even more than that by the inclusion of the slightly out-of-focus man at left ... he stands in (literally) for the photographer, and also for the person who views the photograph. It's an immensely clever & classy picture. Thank you. 9.

Every story a separate chapter. The driver of the bike is the only one smiling - perhaps he knows what comes next in the tale while the rest are left to wonder. Excellent light. And should someone want to crop your out of focus gentleman, make sure they understand that isn't possible as he's the narrator of our tale.

great capture. I can't decide if I like or dislike the blurred foreground figure. I have trouble mentally integrating him into the image.

Excellent, I can almost feel it moving, by the sheer force of all those gazes pointing forward.

What a waste of energy! Shouldn't they close the windows so they don't lose all the air conditioning? </humorAttempt>. There are many good things to say about this picture. I especially like the tones on the side of the bus, and the folks looking out the windows' faces are nicely in focus. Not sure about the blurry guy in the foreground, but even he gives depth to the shot.

This image is done in such a way as I could see it being used as a look back into history. Nicely done.

Superb capture. Well done!

i like the B&W treatment of this shot. Composition/crop could have been better, would have really helped if the man in the foreground was also in focus.

Nice crisp focus on the passengers and good frontal bokeh on the single gentleman. I like well-taken candid snaps of unaware people and this is indeed well-taken. Good job.
