Hi Kristin, wow, this one is superb. Great eye on this one. I think you got hosed on your score. This should've scored much higher. Keep up the great work and I hope that we get a chance to shoot together one of these days.

This is good and certainly should have scored higher.

Oh, you were robbed! I was one of your 10s; loved the angle and this was one where I thought the grain really enhanced the overall look and feel of the image, rather than just being an added feature because it was a "grain" challenge. Nice job.

I think your tilted perespective has made this a cool image!

To much tilted for my taste, otherwise great picture.

Great light, colors, horizon, grain......what an excellent photograph to use as a teaching aid for various photography techniques. Awesome!

This one is only OK for me, dawg. There's just a lot of chroma noise that seems to be in this one, like in the shadows on the platform between the lighted areas.

I wish you didn't find it necessary to include your ISO on your title. The graininess certainly enhances the fell here, and the tilt of the image adds a dynamic that's effective. It could perhaps use more contrast - a stronger sense of the dark, and for a really effective image I would say it is too cluttered along that line of the lightposts - the signs, the seats, the vehicles, the buildings confuse the sense of simplicity that exists in the right side of the image.

Bleak & lonely. I love the lines & the way the light falls to the platform. Without the tilt this would be a more ordinary shot, the tilt adds a dynamic feel. Grain in colour usually hurts my eyes, but you've got it just right here. Wonderful shot!
