boring, derivative, all done in photoshop I bet.

Too many people just draw rectangles and use motion blur...

This is really cool. Good idea from an otherwise ordinary location. I need to ride the metro more often.

I had a look after I saw your comment on my subway (round challenge) picture. Yours is very different but very cool, no wonder it was a winner as well. I like the atmosphere created by the hue shift, as well as the flow through the picture. Good one.

Just awesome work here! And another ribbon in your profile, just like that. Congratulations! Reading some of the comments were actually insipiring - I wish I could call this mine. We have no underground transportation in the city at all. Looks like a great place to take shots. Keep up the good work!

Well done, magnetic, and congrats. This is a very clean mood image. Your decision to shift the hues obviously was a happy one. Yesterday we were discussing Neat Image and was hoping to see a subtle example of its use before downloading a trial version and here it is!

This was my first contest... ended up 36th... (Should have been 35th <<CHUCKLES>>) Anyways I gave this pic a 7... Congrats, and continue winning.

05/07/2003 07:45:53 AM
insp, thanks for the well wishes, and comparison to xertion's cool stuff. i know what you mean about Tron (loved that movie when it came out) and I wish that in real life it was this color. check out my picture acceleration in the motion challenge for closer to the real life coloring. oh, sorry, I edited your post - didn't wanna go there, lol.

mavrik, hang in there and be merciless with self-crit and you will get there!!

kiwi, i might ask YOU the same question, mr. 3 ribbons out of 4 entries!

drew, havent been adding prints because no one has bought the ones I already put up there, lol.

jacko, go team10D! someone has to unseat joebar (are you reading this, joe? ;) ) ..

Someone is hogging all the ribbons....

Originally, I almost "accused" you of being xertion with the style of this pic and also the quality of it. This has the cool blue Tron hue. Oh yea, and its a very nice pic. One of my 2 10's this week. Congrats Kollin on another ribbon :)

One of my favorites this week. Great composition. You got it just right! Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2003 07:05:25 PM
Superb colour. Is that for real?
Love the diagonals on this, and the sense of speed. A shot from ground level may give an interesting alternative perspective if you're feeling brave!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2003 03:10:12 PM
Love the colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2003 05:21:19 AM
awesome. Love the blue theme going on in here. Its like the movie TRON. Looks like a great place to take pics. You did a great job with this one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2003 08:37:44 PM
Nice color, decent composition, a pinch dark for my tastes, but still looks good. Maybe a tad less blur on the train would have been an improvement - then again maybe not. Not sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2003 05:51:26 PM
Wow.... that purple is intense. Incredible!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2003 03:39:01 PM

Very good image with the motion and grays with the touches of blue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2003 04:04:32 PM
Nice coloring. Gave you an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2003 02:03:11 PM
Excellent shot of the Metro! I wouldn't have thought to shoot the train on the opposite track to take advantage of those lights in the median. Tripod? Any trouble with transit cops?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2003 12:03:03 AM
I want one of those
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2003 12:44:14 PM
nothing to critisize, I love it! my first 10 so far! Good luck, hope to see you with a ribbon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2003 11:37:17 AM
If this is the natural lighting, I would love to visit this place. Evvective blur in the foreground (like motion) but the far end seems to be still.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2003 12:18:25 PM
That`s a 10 for sure. Great dof and cool colours and the honeycomb wall is excellent. Just a shame the train casts a shadow on the roof but nothing you could do about that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2003 02:10:29 AM
Really nicely done

I like the emotive feel of the purple light, and sense of speed that you have generated.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2003 04:45:40 AM
I really love the blues and purples, and just the right amount of blurring, excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/01/2003 01:12:11 AM
Great capture of the DC metro. Composition, use of color and motion are excellent.

04/30/2003 08:57:15 PM
I love the colors in this photograph! The lines and curves are very appealing, and the colors/patterns are intriguing. This adequately meets the challenge, and the motion of the train makes it feel almost futuristic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 05:00:15 PM
Love the mood and the motion of this shot.... would love to know how you did it...

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 12:32:33 PM
Very nice futuristic effect with the colors. Capture of moving train and perspective are good too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 12:22:09 PM
I think your effects on this really contribute to the surrealness of it. Very nice.

Interesting colors, good crop. I like it

04/30/2003 09:18:11 AM
i think the border makes this image weaker
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 06:27:58 AM
This is an excellent still photo that does not convey stillness. Very professional.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 04:48:49 AM
a common shot but made pretty by the purplish editing. very nice!
