moving on...

" The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
To stand still is to lose. To move is to gain. To change is to grow. "

Excellent shot. Lots of action here.

Amazing how you maintained focus on the background with the bus passing through. A superb example of panned exposure, and a beautiful image!

Fantastic how you got the lighting right by the reflection of the train/.tram.

Ca bouge, ca vibre, ca vie, c'est génial

Amazing! I never thought about this phenomenon before but you have caught it perfectly in this colorful, well framed composition! V
Guest 13-Aug-2006 00:24
Yes, the phenomenon of focused reflections of the shop fronts in the windows of the train and blur of the moving train might have baffeled Einstein!!
Guest 11-Aug-2006 13:52
This is so well done! I'm a sucker for blur shots, and this is among the best. I like the camera tilt which adds nice drama, the colors are great, and I like the reflection of the windows on the bus. A really great shot! Vote.

Yes change is important, but I wonder if the gain depends on which end you are looking from...for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction....I hope you understand me....fantastic, because that refelction tells us that for some to move forward...others have to stand still, or in the case of the red car...go in the opposite direction ;-)K

Cool feeling of movement, while the reflection is still. Nice one AL

An awesome tour de force of compositional and technical skills. Bravo!!!
Guest 11-Aug-2006 02:09
Excellent image. Really like this.
The Goethe quote in the first line is one I always liked too. I think I actually worked this into a graduate school application.

A taste of Hong Kong as I remember it.
Guest 10-Aug-2006 21:19
Yes,never stand still.
Love the movement here,Ai Li.
Guest 10-Aug-2006 20:59
Love the way the steady and the moving are intelaced. A terrific urban impression, very well composed with these 2 light filling the space left in the sky. Very well done, GMV!
Guest 10-Aug-2006 17:57
perfectly done - a sizzling urban image. Vote
Chris Sofopoulos10-Aug-2006 17:45
I love this effect and the final result of the photo!
The impressive is that I see all the shops across the street!!
Stu10-Aug-2006 16:06
Very good - I am also impressed by the motion and the view between the windows. But for me what makes it is the smaller car on the right hand side going in the opposite direction. The way it is positioned next to the bus - it is like everything starts off in the bottom right hand corner of the photo and then goes 'woosh' from there across the screen. My vote as per usual ha ha ha.

Well, I'm impressed both from your image and from your words. "To stand still is to lose. To move is to gain". A really deep insight. I've to think about it. Thanks Ai Li. Roberto
Fong Lam10-Aug-2006 15:29
The motion blur captures the hustle and bustle of a busy city.......great shot!
Guenter Eh10-Aug-2006 15:28
Fantastic movement, urban reflections, star bursts and this text which fits your picture so well! Bravo photographer and artist!
Guest 10-Aug-2006 15:16
You saved the best till last. The motion here is incredible. The colour, sparkles like your personality, and the way you can see through the bus windows is pure genius. WOW.
Guest 10-Aug-2006 15:12
Just read your point of view, love it too.
Guest 10-Aug-2006 15:11
Great one AL, very fast hands you have got. :) Love the reflection, it summarize Hong Kong. V
