Had little time and less ideas. took 3 shots of arriving, standing and leaving subway train within 60 seconds. tried 8 or 10 different approaches to enhance the pictures. Still hope this will at least hit my personal average.

a 9 for me. 52 is a bit of a low placement, I feel. I like the xproc look, and your willingness to play with contrasts.
PS I LOVE the green. Why do people feel that everything is supposed to fit into the "normal" spectral range all the freaking time?

This is a cool shot, the only one I gave a 10 in this challenge (although I only voted for 1/4 of the entries). The squarish crop works well with the perspective leading into the middle of the frame. The tilt works well, too. The off-colours are actually an essential part of being in a subway, so don't listen to them telling you to adjust colours.

By itself, this is an awesome shot! Just find it's more about lines & lights than the idea of transportation - at least the way the image jumps out at me at first glance (the transportation bit seeps in as an afterthought). Still, love everything about it - so 8!
