21/279 isn't bad. This is a great photo, if perhaps not eye-candy enough for winning a challenge. Sure works for me tho, adding as a fav.

Really good capture of the mood of the moment. My favorite shot thas has anything to do with cars as a means of transport. Good luck :)

Great idea and a cool perspective. The colors and composition work great. Bumpning up two - you get a 9 and one of my top picks of the challenge.

I like this different take. It's better than all those straight car shots.

There's a story here. I really like this composition.

This is definitely off of the beaten path for composition and the results are excellent. Phenomenal contrast and color tones as well. Excellent!

If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I paint you ... (Bread) Glorious shot with a great story. Top dog!

nice! i love the yellow tones and grainy feel of the picture, it feels cinematic, very elegant and rather stylish. it's just a great example of excellent composition, really. the other cab encroaching on our view really enhances the bustle and new yorkness of the scene - lot's of lovely elements. 9.

My eye goes straight to the blurry "walk" sign, because it's almost dead center and is the brightest element of the photo. If the background didn't have that focus point my eyes would be more inclined to focus on the girl. One thing that could be done to lighten up the lower right and bring more attention to the girl might be to brighten up the watch band? Oddly this is one of those photos that probably would have done better had it been shot 1 second later once you go through that intersection and got that walk sign out of the center.

I am going to bump my rating on this photo from my original score. It is better than average. I like the idea.. the timing was just a bit off..

I like this, but I think there were two ways that would have improved this image. 1) You could have exposed for light falling on her face & let the exterior get blown out. (I would probably convert to B&W for that option)or 2) Ask her to lean closer to the window so that the light on her face was closer to that on her forearm. The's a nice mood to this image. Overall, well done.

Nice how this is more a sentiment conveyed of the challenge theme rather than a literal depiction. 8 for that.

Wonderfully emotive. I like the feeling of peace this image has. The woman looks as though she's taking a simple moment out of the very busy world (very nicely captured in the soft focused background). I think the lighting is masterfully used here. The bright bustling outdoors versus the quiet shadowed world inside the car. The portion that really captures my eye is her forearm. Its got a very nice tone and smoothness and really draws the eye up into her shadowed face. I don't know how this will be received by DPC at large, but I think this is one of the more subtle and simply perfectly captured images I've seen in awhile - it exudes a sense of isolation from the outside world so nicely. Sure there are some slight areas of overly bright light in the background and the image could've been tilted slightly to the right to even out the horizontal line of the car door more, but I don't think this suffers from those nitpicks at all. This really drew me in and got me invested as a viewer, I hope others found the same things in it as I did. I'm bumping from a 7 to a 9 and adding a favorite.

Love the composition... Wish the subject was a bit lighter and the "walk" sign is a bit distracting. Other than that it's really nice though.

Absolute genious nice to see a shot that isnt some half asses car or train really captures the mood you are my hero.

Nicely done there. The thoughtful pose of the world going by on its various means of transport is great. 8.

Really captures the moment. I LOVE this. What a feeling this conveys. 10.

I really like this one. The focus on the woman rather than the transport outside gives a calm feeling in the midst of all the activity surrounding her.
