This is very unique shot. I bet in it's original state it wouldn't be as dramatic as it is in inverted format. It almost looks like an x-ray of a train. The colours are great - subtle browns and oranges with hint of blue oposite colour. The detail is also amazing, considering this is a negative. Good diagonal composition.

the use of negative does make this feel a bit dreamy and the title is a kick (good Idea) 7

The negative effect is decent, but it also adds a bit of business to the photo, losing its point of focus.

Ah BACK TO THE FUTURE TRAIN!! Very nice! The lighting effect makes it even more dream like though just a touch to bright for me.

Must be a dream. Interesting effects that do imply something mysterious and even exciting.

I like this one. It's the nightmare express! The toning makes it fit the challenge very well, and the composition is right on. 8.

Interesting construction, and amazing light quality. How did you do it?

I can't stand the inverted effect thing you have done here. "instant art" doesn't save a bad picture, in my opinion. (1)
