    I shot this image in NYC Subway attracted by the man with the raincoat, being the only one wearing light colors on that platform while standing right under the light. Of course not all the others were wearing black, some were blue, some brown or dark grey, so I immediately figured out that editing the image in B&W he would pop out pretty sharply. The good addition, in my opinion, is that he looked at me exactly when I pressed the shutter, making the connection between me and him much stronger.

    I love this moment. I think that this is something a lot of us can relate to. Patiently waiting for the next train during our commute into work or to our next destination. This man seems to be just standing in the right spot for this image. Great work spotting this scene and composing it so well.
