On my way back from Michigan I came thru the Allegheny tunnel in Pennsylvania and took this photo by shooting in shutter priority using a 3-shot burst to get one I could use. The tunnel lighting had a strong yellow cast so I shifted the color to something more pleasing (at least to me).

This is turning into one of my favorites the more I look at it. I like the repeating patterns, the leading lines, and the strong diagonals created by the dark ceiling. I've considered cropping a little off the bottom to really off-center the tunnel exit, but never did. I hope the viewers still see the tunnel exit as off-centered. Bet that will be the leading comment! :D

That'd work as a duotone for me. Love the richness and vanishing point.

I love how all the color in the photographs are different values of the color blue and it's very richly saturated. What would make this photograph better would be if it were sharper.

I love the lighting and angle used in this image. It makes the car look like it is actually moving forwards from the dark blue and black to the bright white.
