Daily Deviation

Given 2005-01-26
The subway by *PomadMan was my first place pick for the Global Subway Photography Contest. To me, subways are about humanity, not trains and tunnels. This one shows a frozen moment and the potential for everyday dramatic tension between two human beings, wrapped in the context of the underground. ( Featured by superkev )

I was looking for photos of Paris from dA and stumbled upon this one. I really like it, the feeling it possesses and the way you've captured it. An everyday scene that has its own charm. I like how you've focused only to one of the hands and how the metallic bars in a way combine all these people standing there. In other words, I like the composition. Beautiful and touching, keep it up.

you're lucky... i can never get pics in the subway that look decent.... especially since everyone who is in the shot thinks i'm a pervert who wants their photograph... anyway, this is a great shot, i've added it as a favorite, so i hope that expresses my love for it... :-)

It's startling how much hand positions can say! This photo does everything good art should do - observant and very human.

This is one of my favourite winning pieces. The perspective is one I would have never seen taken on a subway, and the few colours that were taken have accented the metal bars quite well.

Outstanding job. Congratulations on being a winner of the contest and the Daily Deviation. :heart:

Nice Shot!!! I really like the focus on the hands on the poles. I almost would rather not see the guy standing there and just get a bunch of hands on poles. But it's still a great shot.

Absolutely love it!! Sometimes photography isn't about a story, but I love it when it is, and when it is well done. A story, lots of them, could be written about this image. That's great photography. Such a departure from your everyday "cliche" blurred zoom subway shots. Thank you for sharing!
