NYC street. Slight straightening done to the photo. The only picture which was really sharp.


Disappointed with the result.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very brave of you to cross a busy NY street and not get run over by the mobs or traffic :-) A veritable tidal wave of activity and humanity all sweeping towards you, most ethnicities are shown here...as is that infamous NY attitude in more than a few! In terms of comp, well you were shooting blind, but you managed to put us very much in the moment. I love all the colours, they keep the eye busy looking at things. This is one street shot which does benefit from being kept in colour as opposed to b/w.

Overall a very good image, pity it didn't score higher, but then I've never been able to figure out the DPC voters. Keep on entering!

Feel free to PM me

Great everyday city shot.
Makes me remember why I left the bigger cities.

great shot. i don't think anybody in NY would really pay attention to someone taking a photo like this of them walking down the street. :)

A moment in the life of the city. This could be good in a strongly contrasting BW conversion too. ;)
