  • i like how he’s the center of focus.. nicely captured.. :)

  • well composed, Joe. I like the motion blur of the subway, but the man with the umbrella should be more sharpen for my taste… ;-)

  • haha – i just deleted a bunch of blurry people photos. they weren’t nearly as good as this though. this one works for me because of the super composition and also his shirt at the collar is almost crisp – i think it works well.
