A 6:30am train arrival. I stood in the middle of the raft of commuters exiting the train. The sea of people had to part to get around me and my tripod standing in their way. They had every right to be annoyed with me.

Wow. My first blue. It only took 182 entries. I am floored. I was hoping for a top ten!

Congratulations, most suprising that this is your first blue I would have thought your shelf overfowing with them.

This is so amazing!!! I think it's awesome that you set up your tripod at 6:30 am and didn't worry about what they were all thinking! For that. You truly deserve your award! Congratulations!

Hey been out all day, log on, and see this, WOW, well done Mark.

I only wish I stopped to view this a 2nd time around but never got round to it, I gave you a 7, oh well looks like you didn't need the bump.

Can't believe you set up a tripod in the middle of rush hour, man you are really game!

Congrats on your first bluey!

Humanity in motion. Nice depth and color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i love the idea of this one - it is just unfortunate that so much of the real estate in the shot is the static ceiling - i want more motion of the people

Best in show. Great colors, great lines, and great sharpness to contrast the motion brought out by the long exposure. Awesome photo regardless of the challenge, but it really nails it here.

Like how this imparts the hustle and bustle of a rush hour crowd. One of my top picks so far.
