Blur by KrisVlad Blur by KrisVlad
Train, 35mm B&W ILFORD film

I noticed lots of hair-thin speckles in the black tones, so I meticulously edited this photograph to get rid of the tiny imperfections. What do you guys think? I appreciate your constructive critiques.

The extreme angle of perspective is so intriguing. I love how it establishes such a long distance in such a small amount of space. You feel alone looking at this scene. Like you're the only one here in this night, on this road, in this city.

Thank you!

You should have seen how busy it was. On the left (behind the train) there was a ton of traffic waiting to go and on the right, there was a big McDonalds parking lot that was packed. That street was untouched though.

Thank you very much! It was actually wide screen, but I tightened the crop. You can't even tell right? I think black and white photos always look better squared for some reason. Very cliche.

Nope, couldn't tell at all. I agree that black and white (or any photo actually) can look better squared. :) even if it may be a bit cliche, it definitely works well.

Definitely agree with that... It is what it is though - that's what the community likes.

Very, nice - I always like the blur type photos, and this one is quite uncluttered either by people or cars which makes a nice change. The choice of black and white I think works well for this pic. I am not normally a fan of really stark contrasts, but this works. Possibly play with the exposure a little as you're losing some of the details in the really bright sections.

Thank you very much! I appreciate the kind words. I doubt editing the exposure would help... that's a thin layer of snow on the ground.

It's all good. Plus it was a cheap film camera. I used nice ILFORD film, but the camera itself wasn't too good with resolution.
