    Got back from my day out taking pics and the last one i found was this.I must have taken it by mistake while packing up my camera things.What i want is someone elses opinion whether this could turn into something or should be deleted and not wasted anymore time on.

    I would keep it. It's a nice study in movement. Notice how some of the feet are in perfect focus. :)

    Is this a trick question.

    Did you mean to do it. If so then it might be art...

    If it is an accident then it is could be trash or not... Tell me this... Would you hang it on your wall?

    Every keepable image is not ART. Just my opinion. Some keepable shots are just snapshots, a moment in time worth remembering.

    Art should have some meaning even to strangers I think. Anyway just my opinion most of them are worthless it's why i give them away.

    personally i love it, i would love to have something like that on my wall. to me it shows that the world is always moving and people are never staying still. and i like how the one foot is perfectly in focus

    You know I love you, but this is silly. It's not a study. It's an accident.

    It's not rubbish, but it's been done a million times before.

    see looks like you have your answer some people think its art and some dont. I would expect everything created has the same reception.

    I personally would not hang it on my wall but then i'm not the artsy type.

    I personally like it, but would crop a tiny bit from the bottom, and a bit more from the top...and maybe straighten. Then it would be really worth something.(as art...probably not money)

    Oh man, you know what would be super cool with this shot, if the guy in the middle was standing still and in a sharp focus, whlst everyone else rushing by.

    But that's just me. :mrgreen:

    I'm not sure what you mean by "continue". PP? Further thematic or stylistic exploration?

    Regardless, you should only keep the photo if you see value of it. It's an interesting shot but I agree with Max, it doesn't show anything particularly original, provoking, or insightful. To be honest this whole post seems a bit ridiculous.

    Personally I like it. Some of my favorite photos I take are "accidental".

    Here's one of my faves... totally accidental in the subway my last trip to NYC. The shot is actually a crap image, but it talks to me. I guess because of the hurried rush everyone seems to be in.
