Airport shuttle at LAX, heading out to one of the small terminal buildings for a flight to Albuquerque, I think it was. No added textures - just lovely dirty window glass.

I so hope that that was an intentional pun. It would be a wickedness worthy of Wilde if it were.

I stopped at this image because in spite of its quite pedestrian title it contains something that I call sensory ghosts.
A mundane scene fixed as if by mistake, incomplete and faulty but containing an uncanny feeling that makes one pause.

I love this for itsí use of subdued light to enhance colour and mood. Dark light contrasts against leading lines of the concrete runway, making me feel like I am part of the scene and compelled to stare into the scene of a for an extended time, or at least until my flight departs. There is a feeling of a foregone conclusion, something so absolute in itsí completion that there is nothing possible to do but await the inevitable.

I can see why everyone liked this so much, WD! I nearly entered an image of an elderly lady looking out the window from her seat in a plane, might post it in outtakes later.

Congrats on all the blingetgy bling!

Commenting as part of my commitment to Team Suck:

I commented on this during voting, which automatically tells you it was in my top 25% for the challenge. In fact, it's in my top 5 favourites for the challenge. As I said, this reminds me of nixter, and that I rate him as one of the great artists here... you Deb, are another of the great artists here.

While the voters didn't give this image the appreciation it deserves, at least I don't think they did, but one conciliation is that in doing so, your image can now get a MUAIMHO (along with the other deserving accolades being bestowed).

Wonderful airport view with nice contrasts. I don't think it would look so good without the dirty glass.

Great title. I appreciate you leaving the shadows in the shadows. (I'm a sucker for airport images.)

The quality of the light is a visual delight here & the composition is thought-provoking.

Just another day at the airport, huh. Not for me.. this has a story, so much to take in. Funny, I can't even tell what time of day it is, not that it matters. Great image.

This is an excellent entry for the Art of 2014 challenge. It has a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' nixter feel to it, and I rate nixter is one of the most artistic photographers to ever grace the halls of DPC. I love the composition: on the right the shadowy partial figure in the foreground and the large, shadowy tail of the plane; perfectly balanced by the finer detail and colour of the image on the left... beautifully framed into a polyptic by the window structure. Add to that, the effects of the sun, reflecting off the paint on the tarmac and highlighting the rain and/or dirt on the glass... wonderful stuff.

three thumbs = my top pick & hang it on my wall anytime.
OK, so after half a dozen short-then-shorter lists this is my top pick. Last man standing. Why?

First thing is, it's beautiful. Really very beautiful; shapes, tones, light and all the aesthetics are visually pleasing. The muted colours are lovely. And the composition is inspired. This is a view that most of us have seen many times, and yet I've never seen it captured as beautifully as this. Those were my first thoughts.

My second thoughts were that this is three frames from a film (I speak figuratively of course). A man stands watching, almost from the wings, as a strange cinema plays past him. He can enter the movie; he can stay where he is and watch the movie; or he can leave the theatre and the movie will still play to an empty house.

I didn't dare have any third thoughts.

Thank you.

Certainly an artistic sensibility here. Great light and interesting composition.
