This was from a giant poster inside a paint shop. The double reflection comes from a bus stop with a glass divider.

I like this shot because it's not clear how it was taken. Clearly there is reflection action going on but I couldn't understand how the kid's face got there until you explained it. Funny.

This is a great New York image, with lots of layers of detail to take in. I love how the taxi cabs are reflected as though they are streaming out of the mouth of the wailing baby. A double visual metaphor of loud noise and commotion. I also find it nice that the woman's nationality is ambiguous (American? European? Middle Eastern?), since NYC is such a varied mass of humanity. You managed to capture some of New York's diversity in a photo with only one person. A visually chaotic, but captivating image.

Cool shot. At first i thought it was a multiple exposure, and the fact that it's not makes the photo even better.

Excellent shot with a lot of energy about it. Sam has already said it all.

First, very good observation and strong elements successfully put together. Now, on a more subjective way (perhaps you saw it like that too), The girl looks in the direction of what could be a little bed (you can guess some hair behind the white pile). Her expression looks tender... Why? Because the little boy is crying. And there you are: the picture starts at the girl, her look leads you to the boy, and there he is, but crying on the left side! I like these shots where you can imagine a story. With this one, the cars are distractive, but it can also lead to another story. Very well done, Adam.

Wonderful shot!! There are a lot of subjects in the same place who made the picture a really image of New York reality.

New york is heaven for photographers.every corner has another potential for a good shot.this one was captured as if the baby is upset when the women leaves...very well done Adam!

I actually think that the lady is smiling away from the baby because the baby is her, her past, her present, and she looks towards her future. deep inside she is troubled but to the world she looks happy. she is strong. she turns away from all that is loud and scary.

You know ? It could be a sociological picture. (a lot of things here... for example thoses yellow car). Very clever.

I really like the way the poster blends with the scene, and the reflection of the cars only adds to it.

This shot is SO New York! Chaotic! Great photo.

Belle opposition, Adam, entre l'affiche du bambin qui pleure et de cette passante qui semble indifférente. C'est une image choc.

An over-sized head, let alone a wailing child, is frightening! Good capture! It certainly caught my eye.
