    Took this in NYC a while back, I forgot all about it and I just came across it, it was such a spur of the moment type of shot. He rode by and I just whipped up my camera quickly and got one of him. I kinda like it... let me know what you think. C&C as always.

    Yes. Lucky moment! Cool guy. Mild pity about the shadow on his face, but given the circumstances it simply could not be avoided. The Yellow Cab gives it a NYC feeling that it would otherwise not have had, which I like. Very good focus!

    I agree, I have been trying to photoshop him a little bit more but its one of those spur or the moment type of things and I can't complain. It is a bummer though, I wish I could get the guy to ride back and forth a couple more times, haha.

    Yes! Well done! I would have tried to carefully-carefully just brighten his face too. Just the way you did.

    haha, I am not sure about forest Gump but I think the guy looks awesome. He says New York to me, especially with that sweet Brooklyn hat on.
