  #82 Street Scenes
Entry 9 of 20
   
 
Street crossing       ©2010 Lo
Panasonic DMC-ZS3       9th place, 58 points
1/160s, f4, ISO 80, 37mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped, increased contrast, resized for entry, unsharpened.       Extra Info: Walking in New York is quite an experience. No one seems to obey the "Walk-Don't Walk" signs. Horns are honking everywhere, despite fines of $300.00. Sirens seem to sound every few minutes. It's bright, energetic, and full of life.

    Thanks Billy - you guessed right - don't know how you do it. Old Finn - appreciate your comment - finding movement wasn't the problem, but capturing anything that volatile proved to be hard. Jade - thanks again - with all that colour and movement around, you almost have to consciously relax to take it all in - Great theme for the challenge....

    Old Finn hit it on the nose again. I can't believe Jade wanted a higher shutter speed; especially after seeing his flying streetcars!! LOL.

    Lo, I tend to flatten myself against buildings and street poles (and that is in Toronto - I'm not sure what I would do in NYC!)

Congrats on a top ten finish.

    Movement is essential in this. pic. Nice composition and good sharpness.
One of my favorites.

    Lots of action here. Love the pregnant lady leading the crowd, some of the others a little hesitant since the 'walk' sign is not lit yet. The street cleaner (in red) waiting for the walk signal - he's getting paid anyway, why rush! Super shot!

    Thanks for the comments. I must admit that I found the business of the streets almost overwhelming, so I was not as careful as I should have been in planning my shots, specially while trying to make my way through all that humanity. Great challenge - learned a lot from it.

    judging by the lady in the lead more full of life then most in the picture, maybe the english zebra crossing rules apply. if you the pedistriam is on the crossing YOU habe right of way.

    High interest and dynamic image. Would have preferred to see a higher shutter speed to limit the motion blur but otherwise good sharpness and depth of field.

    not much to complain about here. i haven't been in a busy metropolis for many years. sharp and good color at street level. i'd like to get one from lower down with the crossers coming towards me. but this works. good luck with entry.
