A catch from the underpass outside Riga central railway station... there's quite a lot of motion and variety in a fraction of a second so this was one of my favourite places to try and blend in and go with the flow... which was easier than in SE Asia because I don't stand out quite so much ;)

Hi Lewis, I like this photo.
I do the same kind of photography, so I know how attractive this looks to my eyes. Only wished that the person on the very left was not cut out in a half body, the pedistrians on right side weren't covered with the woman in the foreground. But I know you can not have all in perfect condition when it comes to street photography. So I give out my 2 yens for the photo. Good work.

This just screams Eastern Europe to me. I like this photo a lot both technically and for the feeling it gives off. B&W was an excellent choice also

Superb street shot great motion and lovely grain and the graffiti providing the drab and very urban canvas. Great shot.

un joli N/B et bon cadrage. Ce gros grain est bien vu.
Le temps de pose est nickel.

Sharp photo. As we can see in the floor and the graffitti. And in that graphic world you throw these ghostly blurs. It looks great. Im a big fan of harsh urban reality photos, and this is a dream.

Excellent urban shot
I really like the grain and the way the moving passers bies look kind of ghostly,

REally good street photography! And good exposure too capturing the movement of the people. B&W setting enhances the atmosphere of this place. And sharpness is good too. Good idea and effective result.
