This photograph is taken on the way home after it being engaged and having gone in the direction of Shinjuku. The town in Shinjuku always has much traffic. All people that are walking along the way are walking with the expression which seems to be busy.
The crossing was in front of the department store.
On the sidewalk, one woman was waiting for a signal to change to blue. The bicycle was neglected at the passage, and some women were having a pleasant chat.
It is one of the spectacles of the afternoon of Shinjuku 3-chome.

Good crop in black white depicting the streetlife and pasetrian crossing with the woman aboaut to mae a cross, but she draws attention with stunning slective vivid red color.with lovely effect. This one is a bit different from your normal works. But pretty cool and creative, for it does add to what would be just an ordinary image. Lots of details and superbly exposed, excellent tones and contrast. Well seen and taken

It is a photo of interesting everyday life, it is also a beautiful very creative photographic work. Attractive framing, and good use of the post-processing. Bravo.
Have a nice day

the desaturation of the image is exceptional,with the red bag of the woman to be the main optical effect of the image.The pedestrian with all these parked bicycles makes the scene more interesting.

The red bag the woman holding is definitely an eye-catcher in this black and white image. Nice street life image with these bicycles and pedestrians. Great sharp image.

The composition, sharpness, light management and the idea of leaving the bag red on a B&W photo are excellent. However, something does not look right with the bag. It looks painted-on. I would love to get my hands on the original color photo to see how I would post-process it.
