cool shot... I like it..well done
11 Feb 2009 5:05am
Oh no! Don't tell me this was the last shot before the impact, and the Canon's impromptu visit to the lens doctor Ha ha
Love the feeling of motion, the claustraphobic confines and the way I am almost squeezing myself to the right to let the people pass as I view the scene. Superbly observed, Sharon
11 Feb 2009 5:09am
great shot bc! You have to be brave to walk thro that alley, I think it would freak me out a little....too narrow!!
11 Feb 2009 5:11am
So well done, I can feel the closeness.
Wonderful and moody. Close fit. Were you backing up as you shot ":o)
11 Feb 2009 5:15am
@Marcah: Thanks Marcah! Heh, heh...no way, I was forging ahead!
Great capture, I like the feel of the rush for them to get by. Excellent B&W. Looking back you have some fine images. Nice work.
11 Feb 2009 5:16am
Cool bw, love the motion effect.
11 Feb 2009 5:20am
Just wonderful Sharon. I love the movement of the family. The man's feet. The little girls leg. They appear to blend into the wall almost.
11 Feb 2009 5:37am

11 Feb 2009 5:51am
i like this picture, esp the motion and the still brick wall, glad its still lol
11 Feb 2009 6:01am
Superb composition. Magnificent soft focus, Sharon. Your trademark exquisite tonalities.
11 Feb 2009 6:03am
There is a story here.. and I am left wondering. Excellent capture.
11 Feb 2009 6:15am
magnifique effet de passage - vitesse ............ bravo !
Wonderfull composition, it enhances the narrowness of the image. Well done!
11 Feb 2009 6:45am
Great POV and perfect timing. Well done.
11 Feb 2009 7:10am
Lovely motion! well done!
11 Feb 2009 7:14am
love the motion effect... awesome!!
11 Feb 2009 7:36am
beautifully composed and captured. Love the light, contrast, and the capture of motion...people hurrying through that alley, that's no place where you stay, it's only purpose is to get you from A to B.
11 Feb 2009 7:43am
perfect and superb b&w shot :)
11 Feb 2009 8:06am
This is an excellent image in deed.
Great motion blurr to create the street candid look
11 Feb 2009 8:07am
Wonderful motion blur at your place too, Sharon, and I love that narrow passage, indeed, where I can see two lil'legs of a girl hidden behind Mom & Dad... Marvelous*
11 Feb 2009 8:22am
Love the movement in this image, I too wondered how you took this BC, great work!
11 Feb 2009 8:49am
They're both going ahead with a terrific smile !
11 Feb 2009 8:54am
Love the perspective of the narrow allyway works excellent in B/W
11 Feb 2009 9:04am
Image furtive as the glance which we put on people whom we meet in the street.
11 Feb 2009 9:48am
Difficult chot. Good in B&W. Exellent result!!
11 Feb 2009 11:06am
Axfisiante that passage. Black and white the exquisite one, and the defocusing equips with character and dynamism.
11 Feb 2009 11:08am
A passby shooting. Love the movement and focus point. The b&w work is excellent as always!
11 Feb 2009 11:11am
lol, he looks ready to walk into the wall to avoid your camera! very nice movement!
11 Feb 2009 11:22am
magnifique rendu des ombres-silhouettes dns l'étroitesse de la ruelle, les B&W sont superbement bien traités..
11 Feb 2009 12:04pm
Superbe N/B! certainement difficile à réaliser, la première personne semble vouloir s'effacer!
11 Feb 2009 12:26pm
It seems that they want to cross it as quickly as possible
11 Feb 2009 1:09pm
This image works so well with the Anais Nin quote ... we all find ourselves in such narrow passageways from time to time in our lives ... and the motion blur suggests a sort-of "every man" and "every woman" aesthetic to the wisdom you've captured here ... ron
11 Feb 2009 2:15pm
Nicely captured. I like the b/w.
11 Feb 2009 2:27pm
11 Feb 2009 2:35pm
I do love the dynamic of this picture! Very nice!
11 Feb 2009 2:42pm
Wow - your photography is stunning. I love the black and white tones. Looking at your shots, I feel like I am being pulled right into the moment. Excellent work - thanks for sharing.
11 Feb 2009 2:43pm
Excellent capture of the "Hurry up" world we live in. We are always in a hurry to get where we are going and the motion blur drives that point home for me. Well done.
11 Feb 2009 2:48pm
Very nice with such vivid words. So much truth in both. Lovely.
11 Feb 2009 3:02pm
love the movement and the atmosphere
11 Feb 2009 3:04pm
Another awesome street scene! Love the contrast in the shot. (I borrowed one of your techniques for Saturday's shot...Cafe Reflections..albeit not nearly as well done!).
11 Feb 2009 3:58pm
You were spotted.
I am curious about your choice of focus or not, on this one. I see you have very specialized focus on many of your shots, purposefully, I'm sure. I like your particular use of lighting.
11 Feb 2009 4:34pm
cool shot, love the motion blur
11 Feb 2009 4:44pm
I like the blur of the figures which makes them more anonymous and gives the image even greater sense of claustrophobia. The high contrast also adds to the impact of the image.
11 Feb 2009 5:02pm
Very cool. I love shooting in narrow confining alleys.
11 Feb 2009 5:05pm
A beautiful work of art. The motion in the image is just great as is the play of light and dark tones.
11 Feb 2009 6:03pm
It certainly feels like the walls are closing in on you. Excellent!
11 Feb 2009 6:25pm
Nicely capture! I like the effect of the movement and processing...
11 Feb 2009 6:44pm
great image and love that you caught them in motion. I have one single image of this skinny alley from my last visit to Victoria. I wasn't fortunate to catch people in it I don't think ... I'm going to dig it out and check! Love the high contrast as well.
11 Feb 2009 6:59pm
Very cool capture! The black and white's awesome.
11 Feb 2009 7:22pm
Très belle atmosphère, j'aime bien cette image qui rend bien le mouvement des personnes marchant dans cette ruelle!
11 Feb 2009 8:40pm
I like the speed, the slowness, it is one thing for the price of two, when the life flow between your fingers. The camera is the only thing that can stop this move, not the motion picture, but the photo, only the photo.
11 Feb 2009 8:57pm
It's all been said above!
11 Feb 2009 8:58pm
Wow ! !!
Magnifique ambiance, bravo !
11 Feb 2009 11:05pm
this is superb, the feeling of such a narrow path, the rush of the people approaching you,
Glad to hear you kept forging ahead
12 Feb 2009 2:05am
Great looking shot, the slight blur gives a bit of drama, as though they are running.
12 Feb 2009 2:37am
Very good as always. There's so much tension with the narrow ally lined with dark bricks, and the suggested hurried pace of the walking people. Great job.
12 Feb 2009 3:09am
I like the sense of motion. There is a sense of urgency.
12 Feb 2009 3:24am
Great action shot, the stark contrast really help bring the mood forward in this., Nice
12 Feb 2009 3:30am
Very cool shot!! I love the motion of the people and the contrast...very cool.
12 Feb 2009 4:08am
very well done - just the right amount of movement i think
13 Feb 2009 12:11am
I love the motion in this
13 Feb 2009 2:07am
13 Feb 2009 3:56pm
Excellent title in line with what I see. Great shot, You were going against them, I like a lot these frontal views, so difficult to realize.
