Grand Central Terminal

This is a shot of Grand Central Terminal in the heart of New York City. The image was taken at 7 am, just as the morning rush hour was getting started. I didn't have a tripod with me (and the transit police probably would have hassled me) so I just set my camera on the staircase railing. I wanted to use a relatively slow shutter speed to capture some movement, but I didn't want everything to be blurred. I really like the fact that there is a mix of people who are blurred, and others who aren't.

The shot of the left is the original, unprocessed image. As you can see, it was originally a color image. However, I didn't think that color really added to the shot so I converted the image to black & white.
