Time is floating by like a river, the faster the older we get. This fleeting moment in time in an underpass has been captured from the platform of the train station in Colmar, France

Splendid POW! I like the addition of two ghostly figures.

I wonder if you know this photograph by Otto Steinert, taken in 1950? Steinert was one of the foremost "subjective photographers" of the middle of the last century, believing that the photograph should seek not just to document the world (he disliked documentary photography), but to be an expressive art. He believed that the photographer's creative intentions should take precedence over the motif and whatever social meanings might attach to it. Steinert's influence has been pervasive since.
Your intriguing photograph immediately brought Steinerts' image to mind. Hope you don't mind a small "lecture": it's what I used to teach...

Love this artistic composition, the checkered floor has come out very well in monochrome. The hazy figures effectively suits your attempt to capture the fast moving time. A superb shot, thanks for sharing.

A unique and haunting shot, by capturing these two ghostly figures in this beautiful frame, you have made a real eye catching shot. The black and white treatment is a beautiful idea too. The central decorative stone in the archway is beautifully positioned inside the frame.
Thanks as always

Interesting image and you quite rightly make a reference to the passage of time here as it is clearly visible in the blurred silhouettes. Great idea to present it in b&w.

Well done! First of all, you looked for a scene, and then waited for the "actors" to come and play, the long exposure translating them in ghostly silhouettes.

I love this black and white play with all these rhombus on the floor. A very well composed and beautiful photo.

Beautiful patterns are captured in this photo. Motion blur on an otherwise a very sharp image looks remarkable, congratulations on your steady hands.

Cette expérience photo m'amène à penser que les symboles de prestige dont s'harnachent certains VIPs ne sont que futilité!
