dpc wont like this ... and i'd bet a ferrari, if i had one, that this'll bomb real bad .. but i like it and so i'm putting it anyway .. i may get that long desired ribbon .. but the wrong colour !! ... BROWN!! ... different strokes for different folks eh?
was taken on train at night coming back from the easter show at sydney's olympic park ... its very very grainy coz i had iso at 1600 ... f5.6 is the biggest aperture i could get & 1/25th sec ... all coz of the low lighting ...
did levels to lighten image which increased the grainy look even more .. did something else that made the colours richer .. but dont remember wot ... might've been another levels ...
noise ninja .. sharpened, cropped and border ... saved for web ...

You're right that this is not very dpc-esque, however I think it's excellent and am glad it didn't bomb as you expected... though I feel it would have deserved a better score for the creativity and the artistic feel of the photo. Awesome work.

Yay! This most certainly did not bomb. Glad to see something outside of the glitzy city lights reflected in the river (good shots just the same) do well! I quite like the color and busy-ness of it.

I LIKE it!! I'm glad it didn't bomb like you feared, but I think it should have done better than 5.6. I's very artsy and cool!

Incredibly far from being a bomb...but also still very underrated! This is one of those photos, that those that liked it, really liked it. Its photos like this that you should be most proud. For what it's worth, this was one of my top picks.

Looks like you were wrong about bombing. Would have like to have seen this higher but still a respectable top 100 finish, 7.25 from the commenters too!!

Very nice. Excellent use of window reflection and image of woman. Excellent use of color to enhance the mood.

Very interesting and original. I like the colors and mood. The image looks a little cluttered, it's hard to figure out what I'm supposed to be looking at.

I love this! The colors are magnificent and the composition is really out of the box and wildly interesting.

Love the reflection of the tired and dreary commuters, they almost look like ghosts, passing through the town. Love it!

Definitely one of my favorite photos of this challenge. I really like how the reflection just totally gels with the real. Top notch!

It's a little bit confusing I think.

reflection on the glass is captured well with the street shops and light... reminds me of a work by a famous photographer (I can't recall his name at the moment) .. really nice perspective of night!7

This picture is too busy for me. The overlapping images clutter the page, rather than compliment each other.
