Waiting for the bus...
High-Resolution version here.
[Downsview Station, Toronto]
This is great! Love the perspective, the composition and the processing. One of my favorites of yours Damon. Outstanding shot!

@Stu: Thanks, Stu! Glad you liked it. The sun was unusually strong that morning; although I go to the same place most mornings, I've never seen it streaming like that before.
Fantastic, I love it when crouched down awkwardly, people pass by then turn around saying to themselves "hun?" little do they know fine art is being created! And that staring dude on the left is even part of it!

@Maoya: Thank you, Maoya! The way you describe it: it's as though you were there. I guess you have 'been there' at least experientially.
Nice expression again Damon :)

@H.O: Thanks again, Hiro-san!

@Makoto: Glad you liked it, Makoto-san! I feel honoured to read that it looks like a scene from a movie. No problem using 日本語. 習得したいだから。。。
Good processing in b/w shot !

@Kheoh Yee Wei: Thanks, Kheoh!
On these shadow mornings, not yet really awake, I search in vain for the high-res link, muttering, "It's gotta be here somewhere ..."

@JS: My apologies...
Cool shot! great composition and contrast.

Nicely composed and great conversion to B&W.

Interesting game on light!

@Still: Thanks, Still! The sun was enjoying itself that morning.
Very cool shot Damon. Love the depth of field in this one, and the shadows the columns and commuters are casting across the ground. Excellent work!

@Chris Sullivan: Thanks, Chris! I'll admit that I totally cheated by adding gaussian blur around the man. The shot itself was fairly sharp throughout originally. I was working on the image and it suddenly struck me that he should be more clearly defined in such a glowing world.
Uh-huh, I agree with Chris - great DoF... Love the focus and blur too!

@Mammoth in Chief: Thanks, Mammoth! I'll have to take issue with something though... It's a pet peeve of mine when people say 'depth of field' to mean shallow depth of field. Sorry; I'm a stickler for photo jargon.
On a related note, my phrase of the day, courtesy of the paparazzi, is "hosing the doris" which means keeping the button pressed and taking as many frames as possible in the shortest conceivable time of any female celebrity
This is excellent. Love the love shadowed lines. Great post-production on this.

@Aaron Schmidt: Many thanks, Aaron!
Wonderful shot. I like the slightly blurry image and the contrasting. Great!

@Lynne: Thank you, Lynne!
beautiful work Damon. The blur (gaussian?) is exquisitely judged. and the lighting is immaculatly rendered. It's most cinemtaic. A dream sequence perhaps. Its as if the shadows and light spilling across the floor are paths in themselves.

@Duncan Galbraith: Hey thanks, Duncan! I can see why they pull out those huge lights when filming movies - sure adds something to a scene. Yes, it was gaussian blur by the way.
the composition and light here is amazing! Nice contrast!
