Too funny! I thought of the game Frogger right when I saw it and had a good chuckle when I saw your comment! Perfect timing (for the pedestrians too!) for an incredible shot! And wow, what an awesome portfolio you have! Thanks for sharing! Iren
Congratulations :)Very good shot.
Hey Wilson! A typical scene in Bangkok where nobody obey the rules. Seen this a thousand times but never thought of using slow-mo to capture it. Kudos to you for originality! In Bangkok and Jakarta the saying is "When there's an accident on a zebra crossing the cops will know who is to blame. Ha ha ha (",)"

Timing, comp and movement. Everything in this photo says 7/7
...and Bangkok is not as wild as image might have led you to believe...
...but of course I can't tell this to my neighbor Dave (his first trip to BKK) 'coz this is what he felt! ^_^
Ken, I chose sepia for a more photojournalistic look, and Robert, thanks for your take. Guess I felt the need to adjust for hand holding a +2 sec. exposure. Glad to see viewers adjusting the flavor to their likings. Trust that everyone had some fun with this. ^_^
CR: Can we imagine a better compliment than: I got a new idea! CL: The closer we come (thumbnail - original) the more the general contrary between movement and immobility gets lost because of the blurred edges (and uneven structure) of the immobile parts ... HANE (Evening) RE
Thank you all so far for your feedback... Appreciate them all. ^_^ Just in case if somebody missed the tech detail, please rest assured that no animals nor human beings were harm, physically nor emotionally from the making of this photograph.
Frogger! you read my subconscious!...

Great idea and well done too!
7/7 This is great, Wilson!! very original idea of an evrydey scene, you make it looks so interesting and unusual. this one is perfect to my taste! Cheers, allon.
Well done. Love the Sepia tone. Wilson, you have an amazing eye. BTW: The arrow helps hold the image together.
very nice and original image!!!!
Another GREAT shot! Wilson, you're sooooooo good!
Excellent! Great capture.

Whoa! Makes me nervous just looking at it! Wonderful sense of motion and danger. I like the crop, love the arrow, really adds something to the image! Nice one!
Great composition et realization! AMazing capture of motion. fred
RE is right Wilson , fine thinking and lovely picture though ( and I really dont know where on the earth you are right now , probably only Arctic remains to be visited by you )..
'Zoef, zoef,' that's the sound I hear. Great shot, Wilson.
I love this image but think it is greatly oversharpened. Here it is with a touch of Gaussian blur.
Looks dangerous but a great shot, original to!

Wilson - this is a neat display of what exposure can do for you! I love that the people seem suspended while the cars are moving so fast. You've got great color tones and lines/geometries here.
Wonderful Wilson...excellent idea and well done editing...
Great idea and wonderfully done!
Just excellent, the idea, the execution, the implications, the thoughts it provokes... Jiri

Great ideaagain, Wilson! Well put together in all aspects, comp,structure and the sepia photojournal thang!
Great great shot!!! Is just so powerful!!! Fast enough to see perfectly the people but also slow to see the movement in the vehicles. Is just so great!!! :) Congratulations.
Excellent work, great creativity.
Wils Very original and creative. Nice one. Interesting how you chose sepia for this. Any reason?
7-7 realmente una foto ganadora.
Interesting Wilson. Pnina
Ok.. I love this shoot (puurfect-time!) and i love tha composition too...7-7!! Best regards,mario.
Great shot, Wilson. I remember Frogger - I killed a lot of frogs in that game - could never get them across in one piece. I love the sense of movement with the vehicles that gives this a feeling of danger.
Hey Wilson, This just excellent work....Ya gotta thank the cast, they played their roles perfectly. Yet, I know this is not choreographed, not a set....it's like an everyday scene in NY, Tokoyo, anywhere peops are trying to cross busy streets. But you have captured the exactitude to which you must play the street game. One missed step and it's game over. Really like the tones, rich contrast and striking detail. Very well done my friend, Bradley OK, now I read the details....Double exposure, and all I can say is you are masterful at your craft, clever and patient....well seen, thought out and crafted. Bradley
Thank you everyone for your kind feedback. It's equally appreciated regardless if it's a hit or a bomb. ^_^
6/7 Great street shot! Original! Good caption too!
Super idea. Another great one in the bag Wilson.
Thanks for your feedback, Piotr. Ooohhh...3 & 2 raters, improvement suggestions would be helpful. Can I have some? ^_^
7/7 WOW! it's all been said already so all i can say is well done - i love it - i can feel the movement and hear the cars!
Glad that it tickles you, Charlotte. ^_^
Tee Hee! So funny that you should mention Frogger, I loved that game! I like the way you pieced this together, it works well. I'm planning an around the world trip and have decided that Thailand is a must, especially after viewing such an incredible folder. I love all the striking colors. You're talent has enabled you to remember your trip with vivid detail, I hope I can do the same when the time comes.
I think I'll have to start experimenting with double exposures. great effect
