i like this shot, clodo. the only one in focus is the one on the phone. everyone else is so busy, we can't even see who they are. love the b&w treatment, it emphasizes the geometries in the shot. classic :)

That's fast urban rat race and a moment in time so finely captured with a keen sense of motion effect and the blurry figures. Arrangement in the first place is brilliant shooting angle is great and decidedly other worldly effect here and really do like it, sharp in focus where it counts but all attention in directed to strong repeated lines-shapes of the stair case and the static guy who provides such an excellent solid reference point to the shot. That's the power of mono shot actually -minus all colour distractions. Fine effort and your work never fail to inspire us, you have a very very keen eye!! Congrats

Jolie idée, bien réalisée. J'aurais bien aimé avoir plus de personnes en mouvement sur l'escalier où l'homme est assis.

a world of contrasts this is: black vs white, light vs dark, moving vs still. i love how you forge the idea of "moving vs still" further with the sitting people on the still stairs and moving people on the moving escalator.

Excellent trial! B&W treatment suits perfectly.
Enjoy your Sunday

I like the stillness of the person sitting amongst the movement all around. Nice seen from above, and good choice of black and white.
All the best for 2014.
