I think this was an interesting idea and setting. I wish I could have found a bigger crowd.

=-=-=-=- Post challenge =-=-=-=-

I am very happy with how this finished. I was lucky to find this interesting hallway leading to the South Shore train station while searching for a crowd I could insert myself into.

I just noticed I have three each of 1st through 5th place finishes.

Congrats on the ribbon! It looks to me like you're watching the ghost of a really big chicken! I clearly see the beak and eye, but I might be a little nuts. LOL!

Congrats, this had it all, interest, texture, composition, processing, and as noted before, a terrific ghost.

Love it. I had the same idea, but this much is better executed. I like your choice to look off camera. Love the detail in the ceiling, the sangles and curves and how it contrasts with the blur of the passers by.
Crowd sized didn't seem to matter. At times I had tons of folks. They got out of the way and created a path around me. If I moved the camera back and the crowd was large, you couldn't see me.

I like the black and white treatment. The lines make it cool too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Definitely one of the better images in the bunch. The processing is very strong. My only nit is the blurred person walking on the left is a bit overpowering. Kinda of pulls my eye away. Wish it was a bit more subdued like the ones on the right. But, otherwise this is my pics to ribbon.

That's a fantastic ceiling/roof and some very strong floor detail. It's almost a shame to have the crowd there spoiling it!

Nice image.

Traveling can do this... sometimes you just need to stop and gather momentum again. You've got a nice collection of interesting blurs and lines here. Wonderful

One of the few that I felt truly embodied the principle of the challenge. very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2013 02:02:16 AM
Like it. I think this would have been more effective if you were looking right into the camera.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2013 04:09:32 PM
There are several images in the challenge with the subject still and the crowd in motion. I think this may be my favorite of those.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2013 12:36:33 PM
Excellent! The movement is really captivating.
