Woman on escalator going up. One second exposure handheld but using a railing for support. Only processing was cropping to square, levels and resizing.

Edit to say, I went and cloned out the hot spot Robert was complaining about, so comments on processing are no longer accurate.

I've added a cropped version here

The diagonals keep the eye traveling nicely through the frame, and all those random circles in the background lend quite a bit of interest - would have much less effect I think, if you had not included those background shapes.

I think I'm coming in after the fact, but I like the strong, bright diagonals. They bring your eye to the woman who becomes a visual surprise. Very neat shot.

It's like she's a ghost. I love the golden tones of this.

Everything substantial but the person flashing by. How mortal we are.

I like the diagonal gold lines and the strong upright support beam. The woman is just blurred enough and nicely separated from the beam. When I hold my hands up to the image, I think it might be even stronger with the left side cropped just enough to remove the rectangular bright area (display window?), which seems to detract from the main elements, and perhaps to remove half of the yellow triangle in the lower right (which becomes a bit more distracting after cropping the left, although I'm less confident about this). As a newcomer, I feel a bit of hesitation weighing in with any suggestion about an image posted by one who has so many excellent works and high scores. But sometimes new eyes see things differently because of not being there when the image was captured. I'm not suggesting you change your post again, but you might make those changes in a second version just to see if they work for you.

Thanks for your comment Robert. Honest criticism seems to be sorely lacking in these side challenges. I went back and fixed it. Hope it looks better now.
