Casil had a great suggestion for this months level 2 assignment - thx casil!

"creating counterpoints"

"Counterpoint is loosely defined as an element of a scene that is set up in contrast to or relationship with another element. For example, one element can be static and the other motion-blurred, creating contrast between the two; contrast can also be achieved using color, tone, or position. Or, the two elements can relate to one another, such as when elements converge in a scene in a pleasing way. Counterpoint can be used to create drama or tension in an image, or sometimes the exact opposite"

Ok then who will post first?

I like this...there is a counterpoint of movement as in the lines guiding our eyes into the photo and in non-movement of the people and the trains. I think you nailed the topic. Nicely done.
