Peoplemover, horizontal escalator, travellator ... magic carpet? Don't know what it is really called, but you step onto a moving ground, so you move faster - and endless conveyor belt ...

----------------

Hee Haaw!

#5, so close to a ribbon, I am really happy how this entry did! First time I did a challenge where the score mainly went up (it was a 6.93x at a time though ... but had started around 6.6 ish)

Thank you for all your comments and scores (not a single 1 or 2?), most positive feedback and the few negative mainly constructive - something I can use to get better.

What I really like is that so many liked it without knowing what it was.

This was advanced editing, but I am not advanced, so it is really simple what I did:

Camera sitting on the floor of this travelator, used AV mode and got 30s exposure. Floor stays sharp as it moves with the camera, while surroundings blend together, but due to symmetry, lights, rail and so on stay visible.

Crop, shadows, sharpen, all done in Picasa only.

(Just entered the Contrast challenge, having used photoshop with a picture I really like, I am only just over 5.)

On DPC, you never know!

Happy New Year everyone, and thanks again :-)

What a creative idea...I gave this a 9, really loved the quirky creativity. Perfect for a perspective image. I love the touch of colour in the centre

Ah, very good! I recently took some shots like this, but didn't get the belt itself nearly as sharp. Congrats on your personal best and honorable mention!

Very cool perspective shot, would work well in textures also.

I really like the multiple vanishing points here, and the satisfying metallic colours. Good viewpoint too, if a little typical!
; )

My only gripe is the overpowering white light which, although dynamic, is just too dominant.

Perspective approved, well done

I'm not sure what it is, but this shot is very cool. If the bright line top left could be toned down it would help this shot by keeping the eye moving around. As it is, the eye is continually drwan to the bright line.

Don't know precisely what I'm looking at but it's giving me vertigo!

Terrific, dramatic shot. Love the light, the blur, and the clarity of the textured walkway. 10

Striking shot.

Nicely done. It has an abstractness that I really like.

This will be even better when I know what it is! Oooh, oooh, oooh...is it a bridge? Those are cars back there, right? 7

Nice perspective, but had to spend too much time figuring what it was. Would have preferred to spend more time admiring the details in the image instead - 6
