this probably has a lot of editing boogers due to laptop monitor. salvaged photo with exclusion blending of gradient map. hip snap on the streets of paris.

personally, i found the gas mask/bike combo to be completely bizarre - my condolences to those of you who see this regularly!

Colleen, your images have been amazing lately. I didn't vote this challenge, but would have given you high marks. You have a true eye for artistry in the mundane.

That really is an unusual sight. I like the darkness and grittiness of the photo. It complements the guy's outfit and gas mask lol. Hope you are enjoying Paris! Oh and congrats on that X-prize too.

' as an ex-cycle courier, this image really resonates. the darkness, while criticised by many, epitomises the grimy reality of urban cycling, as does the face mask. i love the zooming composition, the texture of the wall, and the touch of red in the reflector.

Image is literally too dark. It's hard to even see he is wearing a mask.

An interesting idea, but I suspect I would prefer the photo if a little more texture was shown.

this is really dark...not able to really see much with it....does add to "harsh" feel though.

too dark, good idea but the lighting and colors need adjustment IMO

To me I wouldn't say this is harsh. We need air to breath and without some type of visual BG for why the biker it breathing through a cloth I don’t see “harsh”. I don't think this will score well, but I like the editing.
