First idea was Purgatory or some other waystation on the way to some other, more final destination. I still think it's pretty obviously a parking deck. Because it is.

"The Dungeon" of Lot #1, across the street from the state Capitol.

cropped the holy hell (ha!) out of it; weird levels; contrast; some desat, boosting the green and blue, more desat & less light for the cyan; 4% noise; weird USM

My first thought, too, was that the lights should be in a line, then thought, "but there can be many branching paths leading to whatever particular afterlife is waiting for you." A metaphore for our choices in life?

I like, but would have cropped the one light from the photograph... it pulls attention from the tunnel

Very interesting use of perspective. Good use of light and darkness. Very well done. (8)

Were I to look at this photo without its spine-tickling title, it would not have nearly as nice an effect. The lights should have been in a line.
