Challenge: Image Grain IV (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Wellington Street
Date: Nov 12, 2011
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 25600
Shutter: 1/640
Galleries: Candid, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Nov 12, 2011

This shot was done at night. Raising my iso to 25600 and f2.8, let me shoot at 1/640th. This was needed, as these people were in a bus. I just waited near a bus stop. Shooting while it approached and stopped. Again, as it drove past. I always seem to get some nice shots this way. Do try it, very fun. Even better at night, as you are not noticed much. Camera was handheld, with focus tracking on centre point.

oh, only place 35... can't believe. This is a really fantastic image, especially in "image grain".
Why ever, it reminds me to "Miss Marple"

Thoughtful and so transitory. Faces (or parts thereof) in a crowd.. so to speak. Mostly thoughtful as in the woman's face.

a richness to the processing that makes me want to linger

Interesting stories to tell. I am slightly distracted by the wire across the top of the frame, but I understand not wanting to crop lower.

You captured a wonderful moment and I am wondering what she is thinking about.... I really like this.

Beautifully constructed picture. All the lines, smears and vapors make strange connections, as if we're seeing things here that are normally not visible. I'm moved to imagine a guardian angel in the form of a long-deceased grandmother, or something along those lines. And the oblivious fellow on the right is perfect; he's there, but this small scene is not for him. He doesn't even know it's happening. An absorbing photograph. Thank you.

I really like this. Like a fleeting glimpse into their lives, if only for a second.

Very natural use of grain - and a lovely face you found.
