Wow, lovely idea. So they weren't actually models? just random people?
Wow.... You really got lucky, I like how they're looking at each other, like they just...know.

Yer its amazing how well it just works, given all the randomness. I was in that place for only one day and just sitting around watching random people doing random things I managed to capture that. Kinda makes you wonder :)

Wow! :wow:
This is a really unique and interesting shot. I love it! :D How did you come up with the idea for it? :)
I really do love how they appear to be looking at each other. It's like one side is looking into the past, and the other side into the computer. Reminds me of Bev and Kev adverts i see on TV, only this photograph is much less annoying! ;) I also like how the blonde woman is looking to the dark haired woman on the other side, by vise versa they aren't looking at each other. Hope that makes sense. ^^; The way the dark haired woman in the right sided escalater isn't even looking in the same direction as the person she's with i think is quite a nice touch as well. It just fits, and seems to balance out that part of the photo.
I also like the angle and the way the photo is composed with the escalter to the right of the photo rather than centered. :aww: The whole place looks very modern! Great shot! :D :thumbsup:

I was just sitting there and I noticed people go up and people come down. It'd be cool to show that in a shot. Initially it was going to be the same person at the bottom and at the top, but these two girls just seemed to know what would make it extra special and did what they did :)

I know! :) Its almost like they knew somehow. I sat at a cafe and had a drink and a chat with a mate with the camera sitting next to me. I held the cable release and took photos whenever someone would go up the stairs. It was fairly easy to put together, just that I never accounted for the esclators moving, so that was a tad tricky to fix :)

Same people, but I didn't know them or ask them to do anything. I just took their picture as they went up and waited about an hour for them to come back down to take it again.
