The ability to relax as the world swirls around you is a valuable one!
Seen on a typical street of Hanoi.

This is a good one. I love how the motion blur in the background contrasts with the stillness of the main subject. So many things happening everywhere, full of interest. I cant help but feel that the crop could be improved a bit although I am not quite sure how. I may try a few things
I like it very much as it is

an interesting street scene! got the old world charm and relax mood...about the cropping,I think that you could crop the bottom portion of the pavement more... and try to highlight the old lady just to add a center of interest to the photo...

I love the easy-going atmosphere in this capture. For that reason, I prefer to maintain the author's cropping, with another person passing by. This helps me having a real image of the street activity while the old lady has "the ability to relax as the world swirls around" her.

Cought on the run scene.
Full on dynamism, and the relaxing lady actually adds to the feeling of rush on the street.
BTW, she's the lucky one!
Cropping? Possibly the half-man on the right?
Just to create two worlds - her, peacefull on the right and theirs - on the left.
Just an idea (not very smart one I guess)
