So much to explore here.. I particularly like the couple standing in the top left- they look to me like they come from some other time. I find the white lines in the letterbox border a bit distracting- I think just black might have looked cleaner.

I think this one suffers from the 800 pixel limit. I almost missed it. I like the idea a lot, but it's so hard to tell this small. 8 but I have a feeling it's even more wonderful, and that 8 is probably a disservice. :(

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 9s - I like it a lot. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. This is a really compelling image - as much because of its strangeness as anything else. I think that's because the scene is not immediately recognisable - I can't really work out 'where' we are and the social context of the scene I'm looking at - I would say a large indoor space, but that's about it.

2. I really like the motion blur and how it seems to describe an arc. Did you swing the camera and then stop to overlay a more static scene?

3. The lights over there do much for the image - once again, it is the ambiguity of their context.

4. Some of the figures are marvellous - I'm actually less drawn to your main figure and istead find my eyes alighting on the central girl in the middle with the bag and the purposeful stride.

5. The overall light in the scene - just enough to make it interesting but not enough to lose the mystery.

Overall, a really interesting offering.

Love the motion, the rush, the blur, and then the flash and there he is. Quite fascinating.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I love the sense of movement here where there is the motion trails of people as they go about their daily business. There are still some distict shapes to these people but they are darker in hue which helps us see the the more distinct figure of the lone man standing next to what appears as a star (flash of a camera perhaps). There are many ways to read this visual symbolism. There is always a bright star in a crowd. The 'star' is like that of a guiding beacon from a lighthouse shining and guiding one (ourselves and the lone man standing next to it) through the sea of people to a safe harbor.

Nicely done. Your title leads the viewer just enough.

I love the motion and the grain really makes it.
