Nice light, lovely graininess to the image. A lovely shot of travellers typically searching in a bag for something they've either lost or misplaced!

Lots of background interest. Two ladies have spotted you, even if your subjects haven't.

Love it! The obligatory carrier bag at the feet and the sense of having forgotten something - it could almost be me!! Wink

There is a pleasing triangle of people here. The camera seems to prioritise the two ladies in front but the eye moves quickly along to the two men striding toward the platform. There are good diagonal shadows.
I believe I could get to that tabac with my eyes closed, so well do I know the place . . .

wonder if her purse is organized?
Wonder if they are friends?

Must look up Gare du Nord

An excellent shot of a moment in everyones life!
The modern fixation with keeping in touch, a postcard used to suffice now we speak each day as if we were off the map for the rest of our lives. Loves the shadows making you seem invisible to the two preoccupied ladies.

'I really like the Light, vignette effect, & artistic degree of processing,' Al, on this wonderful & superb monochrome reportage Parisian Image~

"You do remind me of the style of the renown photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson"~ Smile

Of course,...You add the current era's "digital post-processing Work," but You craft your images in a very unique & expressive manner. Keep them coming, good Italian Friend~ Wink

Ciao~ Pietro

Fabulous light, well controlled - yes, I see there are some overexposed areas, but this is often a good time to use mono Smile or so I've found.

A superb capture of a moment in time. The light, the framing and the processing combine into an image full of life.

Love the way the light falls diagonally putting the two women in the spotlight.. And the angst of rummaging in the handbag.. Great piece of reportage
