I just can't believe this didn't do better. Perhaps if it was more obviously a station entrance. I think it's one of the best shots in this challenge.

I like your selection of time of day for this shot as the light is a major positive element here -- one of my favorites this challenge

A captivating night shot. It's too bad the "Metro" signage is not facing the camera, though the classic green ironwork clues you in as to what this is.

Like a postcard!

Probably blue.

Beautiful image....I went WOW, but sadly I do not see any train tracks. Is this for the bus? Nice lighting and wonderful reflections, but I need to see something about trains. Maybe you should have saved this one for the best of Oct? ps...I don't mean this in an unfair way, I still voted this beautiful image highly!

Wouldn't know it was train-related except for the title.

Wow, great colors, love the bike and the wet ground :o) The lights are a little disturbing but... overall nice...

love this. great color and feel. maybe burning/dodging the closest lamp to do away with the blown out highlights would have helped but i really like the overall look and love the bike.

I like this shot, especially the bicycle, but it doesn't seem to be about trains except for the title.

A very appealing image - I think it's the greens and oranges working together.

Love the photograph, shame about the fact I can't see the Metro.

I like this photo, but the two cars are distracting. Excellent colors.

A lovely image and the wet night in Paris is especially pretty. The bicycle enhances the photo more than the Deco station entrance.

Lovely evening shot. A bit too much glow on the lamps.

Wonderful light and colours. A very "Parisien" picture...

I didn't know my computer monitor could turn into gold and copper right before my eyes.....

This photo is magic.

We were there, right there, this time last year, so this brings memories...perhaps would have been better with those wonderful METROPOLITAN signs to really give it the Paris flavour...but in any case, a lovely image...the problem will be that without your title, it has no indication that it has anything to do with trains or railroads...
