I called this one Philip Seymour Hoffman and my Shadow because the guy sitting against the Metro entrance wall just kinda looks like him, in full-on Method acting mode studying for a role.
This was taken around 10pm on the subway on my way home from Chinatown. I suspect these two were heading home after dinner and a long day (perhaps week!) at the office.
This image has me on the horns of a dilemma- would it have been better in color or as it is in black-and-white? I think it has a certain character in black-and-white that it wouldn’t have in color, but the western sky would definitely look different. Comments?

ha ha ha 😀 lovely picture !!!
Also, I like the way how you choose sunset image to B&W and the Oncoming Metro’s shutter speeds speaks out 🙂
I like the final image in black-and-white. The gritty urban vibe that it conveys seems to work well for me. The colors of the cars might be distracting in color (especially the cab, if it is brightly colored).
