Thank you all who viewed, voted and commented on my previous upload, thank you Alan, Peter, Nathan, Somnath, Steven, Alfie and Jason for your valued awards.

This was the last photo of the day, I took it while waiting for the train home.
I was drawn to the patch of light on the far seats which were unoccupied at the time, the middle seats were taken by a couple of old ladies.
It wasn't too long before someone sat on one of the far seats, now if only the dear old ladies would move, I took just one shot after the old ladies moved.
I've pondered on this photo long and hard thinking about whether it should be B/W or colour and whether to crop out the chap in the hi viz vest or leave him in.

Won't be on site much over the next four weeks due to moving into temporary accommodation that has a very poor internet connection and a very weak phone signal.

That all important message that needed reading before boarding the train.
Wonderful use of light & shade Mike.

I don't think I'd have been able to choose between those options either... I think they would all work equally well.
You should add the others as versions.

I would crop the high viz man out and try to make more of the look given by the women on the left. It's great use of the light as in all of your street shots. There's definitely a great image lurking in the shadows! Smile

I agree with Barry I would crop out the high viz guy on the right a bit of a distraction. Really. Great low light work Mike
Cheers Walt
