I am very pleased with how well this is doing. I love street photography and it is an area I need to work on more. I intended to spend more time with my camera shooting for this challenge. However, family life got in the way. This is one shot among several I took with my phone on my commute home the one day I took the train to work.

The reflection makes this image. I had to look close to figure out if that was indeed a reflection of the man on the right or a different person inside the train. It's almost creepy. I can't help but think of the movie Jacob's Ladder for some reason and can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's time to revisit that movie?

Lives both connected and completely disconnected. Lines are terrific! Voted earlier. Back to comment.

Nice processing; especially like how you captured the guy in the car. (bumping up)

Lots of great stuff going on here. Terrific comp, lines directing the viewer to all the right places, and effective toning/conversion. Kudos!

I like the image. Maybe you couldve turned down the ISO slightly. The image is a little noisy and bright for a subway station.

Great feeling of movement in the composition.

I like the grittiness of it. The mirrored image of the guy waiting on the platform is awesome.

No doubt needing cheese to go with the comments about color. I have none to offer, but I do have a 10 for a great shot.

I like the toning. It's a very compelling image based on the very thing you identify in the title. Well done! My choice for the blue ribbon. 10
