extraordinaire sensation ............................. perdre pied ou chercher sa route ! j'aime cette image ***********
Wonderful, mystical, rainy scene. Love the soft focus.

The windows to my soul view the city scene, but my wipers are not working this morning, and the world is blur. Must have been a hell of a party last night, because my head is spinning and I don't recall a thing. Commuters all around me, umbrellas poking me invasively as they pass by. Think I'll phone in sick and spend the day in bed.
Wonderfully captured and presented, Sharon. Creative and vibrant. Simply fabulous work

@EYES WIDE SHUT: Thanks Paul! I love what you wrote! Yes, most commutes seem this way, indeed
fantastic!!!! it really captures the movement, atmosphere and feeling of the scene. great deep colours also! i love it!
8 Feb 2009 6:35am
I love it, also. An impressionist masterpiece.
8 Feb 2009 6:40am
I love out of focus photos. the colour here really works and adds so much too
8 Feb 2009 6:45am
hey congrats on the VFXY thang... love this photo, but you knew that i would, hehe
8 Feb 2009 7:11am
Very nice bokeh and you caught the movement of the people with the 1/6 sec; a very dynamic photo!
8 Feb 2009 7:13am
psychedelic ambience...well done
8 Feb 2009 7:38am
Fabulous shot I love it
8 Feb 2009 8:02am
I love this photo, just love it. It's so alive, I can actually hear it, smell it, be in it - just by looking at it. Amazing and beautiful!
8 Feb 2009 8:14am
Feelings jump out of this pic : I can hear (klaxons, trafic...), I can smell (gas), I can't see (and that's great) : great buzz of the city, and in color it's even better !
8 Feb 2009 9:21am
Here the out of focus look really works.. Great shot with a lot of atmosphere!
8 Feb 2009 9:34am
I love it ! the blur atmosphere, the movement and colours.. very well captured !
8 Feb 2009 10:20am
Love the blur, resulting in a washed out, dreamy, confused scene. And a beautiful quote you chose. Nice :)
8 Feb 2009 10:33am
Beautiful and romantic!
8 Feb 2009 11:09am
Wonderfull, without words. Congratulations.
8 Feb 2009 11:58am
Un beau festival de lumière et de couleurs! Superbe!
8 Feb 2009 12:55pm
Lovely reflections on the wet surface of street. The anonymous passerbys are so interesting.
8 Feb 2009 1:30pm
Awesome shot. Love the colors and the slow shutter. Looks great.
8 Feb 2009 1:37pm
I love this kind of unfocus shots. Well done.
8 Feb 2009 1:54pm
I love this look on a rainy day. This vagueness gives the impression that the view is blurred by the rain and mist. Excellent atmosphere.
8 Feb 2009 2:07pm
What a wonderful urban impression... Love this very much! The lighting, richness and the amont of blur are perfect!
8 Feb 2009 2:37pm
Wonderful image and words. I like the style and processing and the red colors really pull me into the photo
8 Feb 2009 2:48pm
Stunning, mystical rainy scene.
8 Feb 2009 2:49pm
the out of focus gives the effect of a LOT of rain. the light is awsome and the seemingly shadow of the people make this an excellent image
8 Feb 2009 2:57pm
The perfect commuting shot, rainym out of foucs yet full of colors... people moving with their own goal in mind oblivious to others... Nice
8 Feb 2009 3:04pm
Wow you really worked that Blur....It's outstanding
8 Feb 2009 3:32pm
Very nice capture of the movement of the passengers, I love it!
8 Feb 2009 3:41pm
Moody and striking! The blur makes this photograph.
8 Feb 2009 4:05pm
seems blured with rain,interesting.
8 Feb 2009 4:23pm
Wonderful capture of a moment . . it says so much more than a sharp, precise 1/600th would ever have done. Great, fluid movement here.
8 Feb 2009 4:51pm
This is really cool....beautiful image. I bet this would have been a winner in the JPG Mag "embrace the blur" theme a few months back.

A painting of this beautiful scene. That shine from the wet streets and the umbrellas certainly speak of the rain drops. Very artistic.
8 Feb 2009 6:34pm
Very creative and well composed. I like very much the general blur of the image and the people xith umbrellas.
8 Feb 2009 6:55pm
I like the softness. It's like you squint your eyes with the wind blowing the rain in your face and the water dripping from your cap. I feel like I am in this shot, great job!
8 Feb 2009 7:21pm
Totally bokehlisious! I can't help feeling a bit like Paul. Rainy days, commuting - damp clothes, stepping in the water, being drenched by passing cars. Cramping into the metro. Makes me dream about just unbuttoning the strap of my camera bag, stand in the corner and observe, shoot, shoot, and observe some more. This image made me smile and grin at the same time. Smile because of the wonderful focus point, grin because it could have been my morning you'd shot.
8 Feb 2009 7:24pm
Great capture. Really captures the sense of a rainy day. Tears for Fears though...Wow!
8 Feb 2009 7:25pm
Wonderful photography. The defocusing is perfect. With you make sure the essence the city.
8 Feb 2009 7:26pm
Love the colours of this eyeball boggling shot
8 Feb 2009 7:32pm
8 Feb 2009 7:44pm
very good image, nice idea
Very rich and beautiful. A lovely work.
8 Feb 2009 8:21pm
Interesting unfocused photo. You havs captured a nice rain reflexion atmosphere
8 Feb 2009 8:41pm
Interesting shot... it does make it look so cold and wet...
8 Feb 2009 9:00pm
Oh-oh, I know. you snapped a shot... printed it out... dropped 8210 drops of water on the print and scanned it. And that is how you got the effect. I will try the recipe some time :-) Great shot! Love it! A high end gallery quality photo!
8 Feb 2009 10:02pm
such great variety to your photos. this is excellent.
8 Feb 2009 10:31pm
the blur made it dreamy and mystical... i cold pic. a rainy day in my mind!!! Excellent variety and beautifully done....
8 Feb 2009 10:35pm
There aren't many photographers who can shot this kind of "technically not sound" photos. You, madam, are one of them :)
8 Feb 2009 10:42pm
One word: masterpiece ! Congratulations!
8 Feb 2009 11:18pm
An impressive shot, the deliberation of 'out of focus' is so perfect as to be masterful, its beautiful and poetic.
9 Feb 2009 12:20am
Outstanding. It's not often I'll call a photo "brilliant", but this one qualifies. I love the choice to say to hell with focus. I love the dark shadow and rich color. I love the activity in it.
Great, great work.
9 Feb 2009 1:19am
Beautiful capture, Sharon. All the colors make it come alive.
9 Feb 2009 3:14am
Brilliant, very original!!
9 Feb 2009 3:42am
This is very nice. I really like the atmosphere.
9 Feb 2009 11:49am
9 Feb 2009 8:56pm
That's a great image.
There are some many points of interest, and all of them blurry - It makes the viewer "invent" the whole situation anew, while watching this.
10 Feb 2009 10:01am
Outstanding use of motion blur and city life...love the colors.
10 Feb 2009 4:11pm
11 Feb 2009 8:57pm
Congratulations Sharon, I deeply love this scene of street-life, the blur is so evocating...
This is a winner!!!
13 Feb 2009 6:07pm
We are in our cars, waiting the green light. while we think, while we whisper.
With those eyes we see a city like that. Everything is blurred, like us.
13 Feb 2009 9:43pm
the blur adds that sense of slowed motion...the drenching is obvious and the resulting traffic
a fine frame for the theme/traffic
27 Mar 2011 11:27pm
Ooh, I love this shot--really well done!
