What could I say that has not been said about this image? (I have enjoyed reading the wide range of during- voting comments)

Firstly, to point out that it had the ability to move the viewer's neurones and hormones :-) in all sort of directions around and about what the motion-blurred couple represents and what their mood is.

Secondly, that you, the pg, had the ability to pick that one frame you knew it was the right frame to capture in order to inspire what you thought and saw.

Congratulations for both things!!

Very Hopperesque. I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ubique about the sign on the right, but it's still a great night capture.

I think I remember this from a series of photos you posted in the past. Good to see a little color from you, hehe. I am not very good at capturing night shots. Wish I could do them like this! Love couple capturing a quiet moment together. Although, I think it's funny that you also captured the brightly lit "STOP" hand on the post hehe. Great shot. :)

Ahhh. So you are the one that nudged me out of 690th place. Great shot. Love the feel of it.

I think I saw this before, perhaps not, but the exposure is perfect for this. Title fits perfectly.

Very nice evening street shot.

i find the sign on the right to be distracting so cropping would be good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 10:24:47 AM
The well lit menu on the right is distracting to me.

to bad the couple is out of focus,

Well captured and presented. Very strong silhouette forms. High emotional payload. Thanks.

Good clarity.

Romantic shot. I like how there is a little motion blur in the couple.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The darkness of this image speaks well, the composition is decent.

Gritty and urban. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:27:33 AM
A tighter crop to lose the illuminated sign on the right, and the taxis on the left would let us focus on the people.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:55:51 AM
nice long exposure...a little dark in tone
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:09:00 AM
Beautiful night photo. Nice light in the front!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 01:53:36 AM
It's an interesting image with a touch of Nighthawks about it, although I do think the illuminated window sign on the right drains it of some of its atmosphere. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:35:55 AM
I thing you could have done away with the right portion to focus more on the couple with a tighter crop
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:25:38 PM
The blur on the people is just what we need to think about their story
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:08:44 PM
great shot ... the couple kissing makes this even better ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:55:54 PM
Nice scene, I vaguely remember seeing this before. The neon looks great, but something odd is happening with the streetlight. Maybe it was overexposed and you burned it to reduce the brightness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:22:03 PM
Excellent street scene capture!! 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 10:32:23 AM
not sure what the "spot" is to the left of the neon sign,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:31:30 PM
I want to see into each of these windows. I want to read the playbill (or menu? whatever) in its display. I want to listen in as the lovers murmur. I want to be in this place and of this time.

He's paid in advance for the room upstairs, but all she wants is to dance.

Great lighting in this
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:30:48 AM
I like this shot, it has a romantic/mysterious quality. I would really like to see it converted to b&w as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:59:57 AM
Awww they look like they are dancing. Nice detail and the motion blur works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely art-deco building. Is it a nightclub?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:41:51 AM
how would a slightly tighter crop look in order to take out that neon sign on the left and the taxi?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 10:12:20 PM
Very nice night street shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:00:18 PM
if you moved to your left a bit we could have had both of the theater names in the frame but nice catch
  Photographer found comment helpful.
