Surviving Rush Hour
A combination of motion blur and low-light photography in the street.
Excellent choice and photo.

You will always get into drama in your night shots. I like it.

Amazing shot. That guy looks almost too close to the car…and you a little too close to him perhaps 😀 Great focus on your guy, though, and the BW effect turned out nicely for a low-light shot.
I was worried that I might spook him but he didn’t seem to mind me shooting behind him.

… and that’s a hard combination to achieve. Always a great job, Allan. Sometimes, I just can’t imagine how are you taking all your shots … where you are positioned, how quick you do it or are you patiently waiting, etc … You do this so well – taking perfect shots of ordinary life scenes.
Wow! Thank you so much, Rommel. It’s actually a combination of all that you mentioned. Every situation is different so I have to adapt instinctively and reflexively. For some, this seems to come quickly but It took me many years to get this far, and I really do have a long way to go yet to produce the quality of street photography that I think I should yield.
Very much appreciated.
He looked desperate for a taxi. Good shot! 😀
Cool, I love the feel one gets from shooting at night.
Me too! I love it! Love it! Love it! Love it! Love it!
I like the way the light sparkles off the clasp on his bag. (clasp? I think.) It compliments the rest of the streaks of white light you’ve captured in the rest of the photo. Enjoyable, Allan.
Thank you, yes. I was a little concerned that in my post prod, I wouldn’t get enough contrasting white into the shot without having to over process the image. I think it worked out okay.

Beautiful lighting and movement. I love the look on his face, sort of pensive but resigned.
Everything about the way he walked down the street and stood at the corner said that he was so tired, and had a very busy and possibly stressful day. He just wanted to go home and be himself again.
You really captured the energy of the city and the anxiety it creates at times in this marvelous photo. Everything seems to be on the move – even the street lights.
Thank you very much, Otto.
the blur gives it a nice impact 🙂

Nice. How was the art opening?
Packed. Lots of artists, lots of invites. Fairly good networking.
A super suave stylish shot Allan, love that man about town feel!
Thank you, that’s the term for it!
I love the drama of this shot. So cinematic.
Thank you, Lita.
Excellent shot, amigo! So much told by a few, if crucial, light points. Very nice 🙂
Thank you very much!
