Photograph in the underground Lisbon.
The second version is the actual original. In this one, I tried to emphasize dynamics by using a descending diagonal ... (if you know what I mean)

Not sure whether the desired effect is strong enough or not ...

Watcha Rafael,
the B&W certainly works, not sure about the diagonal, it doesn't add to the dynamics of this pic, It's already dynamic enough with the movement of the passengers. However, the diagonal makes it look more like a candid street photograph, shot from the hip.

i saw the tension and movement in it even in the gallery, as a thumbnail.so i'd say yes, you caught the feeling of movement excellently. a very good one: high contrast, movement blur, mono, falling diagonal...everything works just great.

Black and white works really well as does the angle.

I definitely like the diagonal of V1. it takes the eye straight down to the focal point at the end of the platform. Superb movement, not overdone, and being mono there's no distraction because of the colour. I get the feeling of the man in the foreground being in a great hurry, which is very true to life and well illustrated here, and he seems to be travelling in the opposite direction to everyone else. Well done.

wow, thanks. very useful comment.
however, i was referring of the diagonal as the actual inclination downwards of the photo.

Super shot. I think the angled camera works really well, here — making everybody look like they're moving downhill really emphasizes the movement, which isn't nearly as strong in #2. And the blurred foreground figure really makes the shot.

I am always partial to a bit of Lisbon being Portuguese and all...
Love the movement, B&W works well, however I must agree with MickS in the sense of the diagonal. Just a personal opinion! Nevertheless great click!
