I like the perspective and coloring. Maybe a bit heavy on the sharpening. Almost missed the yellow in between the tracks. Too small to tell for certain what it is, though.

I love the feel of this picture. It makes you feel cold when you look at it.

Very good shot. Great clarity and detail. I really like the ominous black tunnell, and a great point of view. Line of pillars make for a great leading line to the tunnel. Just a thought here, but the partial tunnel to the right seems to take a little bit of the dynamics away from the composition to me. I'm wondering how the shot would look with maybe like an 8x12 crop, bring the right edge of the frame in to the line of pillars? In fact, I hold up a piece of paper and 'crop' even past the first pillar and right up to the second, and it feels like it draws me into the image more powerfully. Maybe that's just me though :-) I also really like the tone and the feel here. The somewhat muted colors play together well, and helps the pillars and dark tunnel really stand out and grab your attention. Nice job.

edges too sharp, but good composition...

Normally I would consider this shade of green boring. However in this image, with the almost sepia brick walls it is the perfect color to brighten the picture just enough.Great spot to shoot from. Hope to see this score extremely high. Wonderful job!!

Isn't it Porto (again)?
colors are very well balanced, leading lines provide an unusual point of view, worn look suit the subject and supresses lines that are not needed... on the other hand it is too "technical", cold to me - so i settled down at 7

Images like these have an instant call to our vintage senses. A very good capture. Bumping up.

This is a great "perspective" picture. It's just a little over sharpened for my liking.

Greta leading lines and urban feel. I like the fact that its peopleless as well, Tones are good and colors also. Neat!

good capture, seems a bit oversharpened

Nice lonely sense to this photo. I like the dimmed tone of the pillars. Great leading line. Having one single person down near the tunnel would have really been a nice touch. 7

Love the photo - with the title I feel much more impact if there had been a person leaning/standing. Great leading lines - excellent photo!!!
