One can not only buy and take away, but there are a few other posibilities...
Heading south-west from Kálvin tér to Vámház körút, you'll come across the largest of five market halls opened towards the end of the 19th-century - the Central Market Hall. This grand structure originally incorporated an indoor canal by which goods were delivered to the market's traders. Restored in 1994, the sheer size and grandeur of the hall reflects an era when Budapest was a city with big ideas.

As I wrote in the note to the first one of the serie, I walked without any target, open for any impression, but fixing me more on the people.

That hall is very impressive. There's a lot of much motion blur but I like the face on the guy to the right, he seems to have his mouth full. The group of three men of which he is a member is nice for the composition, it's sort of a variations on a theme picture. Maybe you should emphasize that by getting rid of the woman. Pity about the blur...

Hi Janos, I like the idea here, but I wouldn't have used such "long" exposure time, but that's a personal view. The expressions on the faces are good, but as Simon said, the image as a whole is a bit too blurry. Ps: Budapest is a very nice town, after having visited once, I even returned the year after.
