Totally give up on figuring this out, but it seems to point to a brand new world of city commuters wading through light.

I don't understand the low score, an excellent example of 2nd curtain sync panning

Surprised this wasn't in the top 10. When I first saw it, it grabbed my eye, pulled me in and I wanted to travel to this moment.

You certainly made good use of a unique location to get this, and you knew how to get what you wanted from the scene. Good image.

The pattern in this picture is very attractive, and the colors really bring out the picture.

Great effect with the legs disappearing into the neon - I hope you share how you did it!

Great idea, I am not sure how you did it. Great use of rhythm and line.

Awesome photo. i have no idea how you did this. Great color contrast and use of panning/ light work.

The colors and the lines are all so cool - great job!!

I would like to know what I'm looking at and I do believe something in your photograph is supposed to be blurred and only one main thing in focus...

Very cool. Surreal.

whoa - wild shot

I don't quiet understand the idea for this photograph because the guy's like fadding into the ground
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm honestly a bit confused on this one. The motion is clear, but the man's shadow is extremely strange and I can only guess at what's producing the purple light. Those are some very long lines of motion.

The overall composition is very interesting. I like the repeating patterns and the yellows in the upper third contrasting the bottom 2/3. Fascinating picture. I look forward to seeing more about this one, but I'm going to keep coming back to see if I have an a-ha moment about the elements involved here.

Awesome effect!

I'm trying to figure out what that purple is. and I'm trying out how to do this within basic rules. ignoring that, the purple and yellow do complement each other. overall, though, the shot just doesn't appeal to me (just a reaction, I know, not a critique).

Interesting effect.

very odd

What a strange and unique effect. The background definitely conveys motion. Would like to see the guy in green a walking into the photo as opposed to out of it. Still can't figure out what the purple lines are and why they are at knee level.

Way cool. One of the best, so far. Imaginative.
