Amazing photo Sharon, as if this strong light was curving your frame... i like the play of lines in the sky and how people seem dazzled and aspirated (the direction of light is probably the right one) I love that absolutely !!
15 Nov 2009 5:29am
The fish eyed Lomo strikes again! We haven't had electric powered transit in this area in decades. best...jerry
15 Nov 2009 5:56am
Beautiful! I love what you did to this B&W street shot!
15 Nov 2009 5:59am
The beam of light bumping on is beautiful, the day isn't here yet in Paris (7am) and yet you make the sun shines in. Love that second eye, on crowd & Life walking ahead, and of course the criss-crossing electric lines in the sky (tramway wires ?) : love them, seem like eyelashes curving over the magic eye !
15 Nov 2009 6:17am
Fantastic bw, love the light in this!
Nice shot. Love it. It looks like looking into a crystal ball! hehe!
15 Nov 2009 6:36am

15 Nov 2009 11:35am

15 Nov 2009 12:36pm
Streetphotography combined with this awesome lens, he this works. I'm inspired - I just look to get a fisheye. Thanks a lot my friend!
15 Nov 2009 1:01pm
Good high contrast, like the clear view of that one face in the middle.
15 Nov 2009 1:10pm
15 Nov 2009 1:12pm
The contrast is geat the subjet too. why the fisheye ?
I'm sure the picture was enought just like it was.
15 Nov 2009 1:13pm
@Ben: Thanks Ban.
Why the fisheye? It's the only camera that I had with me. It's a lomo fisheye camera and that's the way the images come out , there was no option here :)

Made my day, Sharon. Bright light, big city, lines, people in safe distance & your great art. A brilliant photograph. Great! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
15 Nov 2009 1:26pm
Fantastic fisheye effect and superb lighting! Lovely street scene!
15 Nov 2009 2:23pm
So we'te both on round shapes today... !
Thnaks for your kind words Sharon. I feel a bit depressed today.
15 Nov 2009 2:29pm
My kind of shot. I really like the wires going through and forth! Great lighting too!
15 Nov 2009 2:43pm

15 Nov 2009 3:26pm
What a wonderful expression of the city mood!!! The amazing details are brought together beautifully... so full of life, activities, energy and the inspiring light completes the image! Absolutely brilliant work! Enjoy this very much!:-)
15 Nov 2009 3:28pm
The heavy lens flare adds so much to this wonderful street shot. Minimalist and yet strong.
15 Nov 2009 3:31pm
Beautiful BW ! Great lighting !
15 Nov 2009 3:40pm

15 Nov 2009 5:11pm
Very nice capture awesome black and white. Great lighting. Have a good day. Antoine.
15 Nov 2009 5:26pm
Striking Fish eye into the white light shot. I particularly like the tram line pattern. 'Somebody spoke and I went into a dream'
15 Nov 2009 5:30pm
The photo, the urban scene...great compo!
15 Nov 2009 5:47pm
I love the abstract quality of this one with the glaring whites and the dark shadows. Well done.
15 Nov 2009 6:15pm
All go to the incríeble light… and admirable black and white, exceptional east
a warm greeting
15 Nov 2009 6:18pm
Love the effect, the tones, the compo, the light... Excellent eye!
15 Nov 2009 7:07pm
They are like awe struck characters in a sci-fi movie watching the space ship land. Your capture of this scene is pure art/genius.
15 Nov 2009 7:31pm
whata wonderful light! the fish eye makes it even more special
15 Nov 2009 7:37pm
Moody, creative, evocative...love the darkness of this image and the 'line' textures.
15 Nov 2009 8:05pm
I like the story in the picture and the lights.
15 Nov 2009 8:11pm
Only you could make the lens flare work so well! I really love this one - it's as if they are waiting for an alien invasion. The lines above add to the drama.
15 Nov 2009 8:37pm
it looks like they are all attracted to this "star"!
beautiful shot, Sharon!
15 Nov 2009 9:52pm
This reminds me of Spielberg series TAKEN,
but all the more awesome. Cheers!
15 Nov 2009 10:07pm
Superb, creative and original work!
15 Nov 2009 11:04pm
What a nice compo and distortion. The light is simply delicious. Superb!
16 Nov 2009 12:19am
Beautiful!! I love the sun rays and the fish eye effect. The light and contrast is very nice and the tramway cables add a nice design.
16 Nov 2009 12:23am
The lomo fisheye style is providing a certain look, they seem like lemmings moving into the light.
16 Nov 2009 1:24am
Marvelous capture, Sharon. Very cool lens, and you know what to do with it!!
16 Nov 2009 2:09am
very nice shoot and contrast !!!!
16 Nov 2009 3:17am
A sweet wide-angled take on an urban stroll of light. Nice b&w.
16 Nov 2009 4:06am
Cool fisheye shot...
16 Nov 2009 4:19am
this is an awesome viewpoint. lots of activity going on, and the sunlight adds a direct plus!
16 Nov 2009 4:32am
Fantastic fisheye shot. I love all the cables crisscrossing.
16 Nov 2009 4:33am
Beautiful lighting. Which makes me wonder what was this bright lighting in the sky that's so eye-catching???
16 Nov 2009 4:59am
j'suis éblouie par ce flash de lumière et en admiration devant l'originalité de ton cliché.
16 Nov 2009 6:11am
I haven't used my Lomo Fisheye for a while- you've inspired me to get it out of the bag once more...
16 Nov 2009 6:51am
Me gusta mucho el efecto de esta fotografia, junto al tratamiento aplicado.
Buen disparo, saludos.
16 Nov 2009 7:07am

16 Nov 2009 7:28am
Great use of the fisheye lens with an excellent control of the light! Well done.
16 Nov 2009 9:24am
Unusual and funny ! :-)

16 Nov 2009 9:46am
Love the silhouetted figures and the light..but it's the Beatles quote that really makes it!!
16 Nov 2009 12:42pm
makes me think that I wish to visit one of these days your city. Is it so curious?
16 Nov 2009 3:20pm
Una imagen envuelta en misterio, me gusta el efecto que le has dado. Genial!!!
16 Nov 2009 4:02pm

I like this lens and the shots you are creating! This has great light and the electric wires above add additional interest and patterns! Great title also!
17 Nov 2009 6:05am
A well seen opportunity, and a wonderful interpretation.
(I've changed my blog yet again. See my new Photojournal on my site.)
17 Nov 2009 12:00pm

17 Nov 2009 12:20pm
very interesting street photography shot with awesome light and contrast! i love it!
17 Nov 2009 12:49pm
very nice street image in circle.
It seem to be in the world of imagination.
It reminds me Auggie Wren's photo in the movie 'Smoke'.
17 Nov 2009 1:32pm
fantastic street shot, I like the use of fish-eye
17 Nov 2009 2:06pm
Sweet photo BC...love the deep black and white...but mainly the content, the madding crowd seemingly watching something in unison like that...great strong light...maybe they were awed by the spectacle we call the sun...
17 Nov 2009 5:41pm
Excellent image! Yeah! Number 86 commenter! :P
17 Nov 2009 10:59pm
I truly love your work! Incredible image.
17 Nov 2009 11:58pm
Hey!!! Did you get a new toy? That is a great effect and I like the contrast and lines.
18 Nov 2009 3:56am
This photo works a treat. Very nicely done!
18 Nov 2009 2:17pm
like a snowglobe! ;) beautiful use of fisheye to bend the world we know!! i want to go in!
18 Nov 2009 3:29pm
celle ci est un régal, parce qu elle change et nous montre le monde sous un regard et un angle diffèrent, et aussi parce que vu comme cela la vie s anime, j aime ^^
18 Nov 2009 7:12pm
Definitely it is a picture with a very special atmosphere. It seems that what passes in any event before, the flying saucer! Or are all going to work this morning. Bonne semaine.
19 Nov 2009 2:21pm
19 Nov 2009 10:16pm
you can see so much more detail here than you can on flickr. the contrast is absolutely perfect!
20 Nov 2009 3:40pm
^ aaahh, a day in the life :)
sometimes i wonder if people get my lyrical titles.
22 Nov 2009 5:49am
True sense of being drawn towards the light....love the distortion too.
22 Nov 2009 7:52am
Wouah, I definitely love that, beautiful B&W magnified by the round shape given by the fisheye... That's how a pretty common scene can become interesting by the magics of photography!
25 Nov 2009 4:37pm
One of my favorite songs. And no one knows how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.
