I like the light reflecting off the street under the bus. That bus looks a little ragged around the edges. Great shot.
E Etomi: Thanks Laurie. Thats how the public transport here is, hardly maintained.

Great street shot! Nice feeling of movement and it's a nice yellow bus!
E Etomi: Thanks Sidney
hey etomi,

awesome shot. really nice capture, and just the right amount of blur to give the sensation of movement. i really like the pping that you did here...terrific blending of tones and colors.
E Etomi: I didn't add the blur, was attempting to pan. Thanks
Love the shot..what did u do to the sky background...cos am sure the sky was not yellow that day?
E Etomi: I used the graduated tint in Picasa. Thanks

Eeeeecccck nnnoooooooooo, I actually remember that song (Jezzz, I really can't belive I still do), I find myself singing the darn tune in my head as I type this now (all your fault girl).

Don't tell me they still have these death traps on the roads in Lagos, Jeezzz. I hope you where not driving when you took this.

Good capture, I sorta like the motion in the shot.
Suby
E Etomi: No was at the backseat clicking away.
