there are so many horizontal lines in this one, making everything look so 2-dimensional and flat! the red cone really stood out from it all, firstly with it's contrasting colour, and secondly because it appears 3-dimensional (due to shadows) and thirdly because it is dead in the centre of everything else. Help, I cant get my eyes off the red cone, it's drawing too much attention simply by being there! superb work, as usual.

Interesting lines and composition. I like the red cone in the center of the shot. I like how you include the power lines. Not sure how it fit's the title...

I don't know why, but I find this exquisite.

Oh, I can just imagine that comments box filling up with wails of non-understanding. I wonder if, in a composition so full of the incidence of lines, a little correction to the lens distortion might not have been valid? Sure, it's slight, but it seems to my weak eye that the main force of this is in the rigid geometry of most of these structures - even in the diagonal of the wiring gantry and its shadow, which we know, actually, to be just as right-angled as the rest (another point follows) - and that slight curvature of the extremities brins a warp to the whole idea that I don't quite understand. I'm prepared to accept that the failing there is my own, mind you.

That rigid geometry is of course broken primarily by the ubiquitous and non-rigid cone, and utilising that subtle trick of making the dead centre of image the strong point - because we can go anywhere from there, and yet of course the sheer day-glo brightness of it drags the eye repeatedly back to that point: we can go industrial in the foreground, to the city-scape, or even as far as the clouds, and yet we ar made to return to the humdrum every time. What could be a better day trip than that? Infinite possibilities, and the promise of one's own bed at the end of it.

Glorious stuff.

Great layers and textures in this photo, nice color, but no obvious relevance to the title. A day tripper is a person. Put a girl on the platform.
