Some people have all the time in the world to stand / sit and chat, whilst others are bursting a blood-vessel to get where they are going.
A little offering of motion blur taken at the transit hall of a rasilway station recently.
Both hand-held at 1/6th second.
Both converted to mono, but using different processing.....what do you all think? I have broad shoulders so hit me.Tongue

Thanks for the comments on yesterdays offering, and as ever, thanks for bothering.

both appealing in their own way..feel there is a very slight horizontal bias to both shots, but exteemely well controlled under the circumstances. I sometimes try this when I'm at airports etc...I think the skill is to find a static person/object and fire away around that Smile

"What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time . . . " etc.
I prefer the composition/content of V1 but the processing of V2. Not that I am able to give reasons, you understand Wink

It must be an age thing Malc,but I really can't make up my mind here !!
At my age I prefer to sit on the fence now,(as long as it is not too jaggy !!)
And regarding all this blowing and sucking,I think what concerns me more is what is in the water in the first place to require a bit of blowing and sucking !!

Motion blur pictures are fascinating for the stillness that they can capture as contrast. Both of these are good, V1 has something special, it's as though that girl in the middle is observing the bustle.

I think these work well Malc. I have a slight preference for V1. The figure coming into the scene from the left gives an extra impression of speed. It's as if he's intruded into the shot you had composed. I also enjoy the space between the figures. Suits mono, good work. Smile

I think you need a sharp point of focus that allows ones eye to travel to and from-- BUT--- I don't do this sort of imaging, so my crit is not especially useful--- not based on experience!

V2 for me - I like the slightly busier look - both processed well and hard to choose from that perspective.

Two interesting images, Malc. I have an instinctive preference for V1 and after carefully studying both images I think I've worked out why Smile - the central area of V2 is quite crowded and all the figures in this part are hurrying (i.e. blurry!), whereas in V1 there is a contrast between the two still groups of figures, either side of the slightly blurry dark haired girl in the middle. This creates a very pleasing balance, which is much easier on the eye.

Prefer v1, I think, Malc, because there is more open space. It makes it easier to concentrate on the activity.

Two excellent images, Malc! I really, really like these kinds of images! Wonderful tones and composition!

I particularly like to capture people in Railway stations and airports, and then convert them to B&W. I feel they're more effective displayed in monotone. Smile

Dont know how you have done it but looks great to me.. mono especially
I think I would have cropped out the man in the striped jumper ... he doesnt really add anything to the overall great image
