wish I could pin point exctly why, but this is a very powerful and evocative image. Your black and white conversion is excellent - very dramatic shot

Unsure? Depends what you had in mind. The high contrast really packs some punch.... excellent comp.... and the whole scene is nicely open to interpretation. Great counterpoint between the moving foreground figures and the static chap on the right doing an obvious double take.... what's going on?

Thanks for the feedback guys, appreciated! Mostly unsure if it was too dark and the ladies to blurry for most viewers. Might be my screen, but think I could lighten it slightly.

Pooch, thanks a lot for that comment. I'm a really bad judge of what works and what doesn't. And when I upload something you don't like at all - please let me know

Loving the straight to large view too Smile Now where's Koen for the celebration..?

I love the composition and the movement. Wonderful. If it were mine I might try and bring the mid tones up a little, but .............it works anyway.

This is good Tommy. I'm currently working with motion blur, so this is right up my alley these days.

Really like the high contrast tonal values - like the perspective and leading lines, and the juxtaposition between the stationary guy vs the movement of the passengers.

I think you should be well pleased with this one.

Looks great to me. I like the curving lines leading through the shot and the stationary parts are so beautifully sharp that I don't think anyone could reasonably object to the motion blur. Smile The guy looking back at the camera is fantastic.
