~ Taken at 8am, Flinders Street Station ~
** The green tinge is intentional. I have experimentally added the greenish tone to the photo for 2 reasons: I feel that it would fit the atmostphere there, and it'd make a very familiar scence to any Melburnian a little bit different ;)
Thanks for all comments :)

WOW there's a lot of dudes here! Almost worst than the parisian metro at the Châtelet station in the morning! It's always great to get a shot from above in this kind of situation...let's get high...lalalala...;o) I like that there are a few guys looking at you, 'cause it gives back to them some kind of humanity in this wave of dozens souls. I regret though that the tone is so greenish and I think it would have been a wonderful shot if the focus was on this guy in the middle (behind the one with a black and grey bag).
Thnaks for sharing, keep clicking ;o)

Good shot - I agree that the green cast (flourescent lighting?) is a little distracting.

I kind of like the green tinge. It adds that kind of "sterile, rat-race" atmosphere to an image of the daily commuter grind. I really like the way that the one guy who seems to be walking against the tide is brighter and whiter than the rest, like he is the actual focal point of the image (in which case you could rename the photo to something like "swimming upstream" to further direct attention to him). I wonder if there is any way you can manipulate the image in photoshop to further enhance that one person?
The smiling face of the guy in the Loreal ad is a good contrast to the relatively glum faces of the commuters.

Hi Bui, una foto interesante por captar un momento cotidiano de una gran ciudad, la composición esta bien hecha y me gusta el tono verdoso que le has dado así como el encuadre, la profundidad y muy buena definición.
Felicidades y un saludo desde España...............................Paco

I like the green tinge too - it sums up how these commuters feel going to work (OK how I feel at this time on my way into work!)
Good shot - I'll give this a go sometime when I'm next on the platform at rush hour.
