Really like the vividness of the isolated elements against the darkness. Great shot and processing.

@Duncan Galbraith: Thanks. I've been enjoying everyone's comments, especially that they choose different things to comment on. I'm amazed looking at this image today that there are new things I hadn't seen earlier. Because there are a deceptively great number of details. Like the reflection of the man who's standing, the crossword enthousiast on the left, and the "a little farther" tucked into the corner.
TTC the better way... :)
love contrast between yellow and black.

Nice urban street/metro image. Vivid colors work well.

@Craig Persel: Thanks (and to the others who commented on the processing)! I wasn't really sure which way to go with this photo, but in the end, the high-contrast, saturated colour approach seemed to work best at conveying a mood.
Nice popping colors there... And I noticed where you got the picture title from ;) I wish buses here looked as comfortable as that. It is always so jam-packed here.

@Ryan Yam: Thanks. It depends what time you take it. In the late afternoon at rush hour, this route is very packed.
Nice shot! You don't have trouble to take pictures of anybodies?

@Martine Lapointe: I'm not that brave, but one good thing about my camera is that it's discreet, and so I don't think anyone actually noticed this time. Also the straps at the top left were in the centre of the original composition. I cropped it down. But in any case, nobody has ever confronted me about taking pictures, except for once which was pretty funny and a story for another day.
Nice shot, I like it. Gives a touch of the "life".

Cool shot. I like how the oncoming cars are visible as well as the commuters

love the colors...and i think the fact that everyone seems to be looking away from the camera makes it more interesting..

Me gusta el fuerte contraste que le has dado a la imagen. El colorido, magnifico.
