I really enjoyed how this challenge had me looking at things differently. It was fun trying to come up with a composition and a subject that were interesting together, without going for the same old shots. In fact, I steered away from straight up/straight down, because those are a bit too easy to do. I wanted to find something that had angles and depth.

So I'm walking up this escalator that has been turned off, taking some very "meh" photos. Then it hit me. I just happened to look at the right place at the right time and see this! I composed the shot, and fired off bracketed exposures since the light was very contrasty.

Back home I combined the shots with Nik HDR Efex Pro, then did some minor tweaks to color and sharpness to get what I wanted. I really couldn't be happier with this photo.

Easy to see why you're pleased with the image - it's just what you were looking for and superb! The lines are excellent as is the detail throughout. Congratulations on the top ten, Mike.

Striking. No more to say except exceptional sight and timing. Bump.

Terrific work, a seemingly effortless tour-de-force geometric abstraction.

Wonderfully crisp, mesmerising. Super silvers and a hint of yellow make this a standout image in the challenge. Perspective is different to everyone for sure but this is without a doubt DMC. High Marks.
