Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Street Photography (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Nikon
Location: Flinders Street, Melbourne Australia
Date: Feb 19, 2007
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/160
Galleries: Candid, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Feb 18, 2007

Took this candid at the Flinders Street Station in the mornig as people went to work. I just kept crossing the road and weaving in the direction of the oncoming rush of people. I ended up with some interesting shots. This one had the look of a race and who was going to get to the other side first. Used an ultra wide 10mm lens to get the wide distortion which I like.

Basic editing including duotone, dodge and burn and sharpen, nothing major here.

I reckon it will either do well around 6.2 or really drastically around 5.5...hoping for around 6

POST: Well this was beyond my expectation, so thanks everyone for the great comments and votes. I loved this challenge...

I'm perusing and critiquing archive DPC street photography challenges to learn more about composition. Please email me responses to my comment if you like.

Classic street image but you captured the energy of the humans as well as the energy of the architecture.

Wondering why the sky is so dark at the top of the photo.

Nice dynamic shot. Too many in this challenge have 'extras' cluttering the background. All these people make the shot in this case.

This is cool! Love the tones - Excellent shot!

cool shot. wish you had waited for them to get a bit closer to you, so we could become more attached to them individually.

GREAT CAPTURE! Love the blank expressions on all their faces.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 10:30:38 AM
Wonderful almost distorted sense of it. Love the movement. Makes me think of an older time with the sepia duotone. GOOD stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 09:47:28 AM
I love the perspective. And the movement is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 09:32:15 AM
Enjoy this frontal pov.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2007 07:00:11 AM
Good POV and great execution, like the tines here. Though you could have improved this dramatically by cloning out the overhead wire mesh as that is a major distraction from the otherwise excellent image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 09:48:04 PM
nice timing - the distortion is great too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 08:10:21 PM
Brilliant wide angle. Love that the most prominent all have their right foot leading. What a fantastic moment in time this is :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 06:33:28 PM
I like the angle and the framing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 04:41:03 PM
Nice, Every Person going the same way and fanning outwards providing a nicely enthralling perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is fantastic, great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 03:12:33 PM
Powerful energy in the movement in the people...great shot. I just hope you got out of the way before they mowed you down!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 11:59:28 AM
Excellent wide-angle shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 11:24:12 AM
i like the title, pretty cool composition with all these people radiating out from one source.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 11:18:19 AM
personally, I don't care for the fact that the folks on the left are more distorted than the folks on the right ... gives the image a lopsided feel to it ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 06:55:30 AM
lol they are all crossing in the same direction, I don't know if I've ever seen this happen. Very nice image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 05:35:16 AM
I like this angle and distortion! nice tones, too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2007 04:52:11 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
