The Seattle "South Lake Union Streetcar" is quite new and was originally going to be called the "South Lake Union Trolley" until someone noticed the acronym would be S.L.U.T. Most locals still call it by the unfortunate acronym :-)
Polarizing filter was used for saturation and reduced window reflection. I was hoping for a lot to come together for this dynamic setting and got as much as can be expected in such a crowded environment.
Processing: curves, levels, shadow/highlight, exposure, smart sharpen, SFW.

Love the colour of the bus, this is a really good shot imo looking at the score I am very surprised it didn't score alot higher.

What a fab bus..train..trolley car!never seen one before, looks quite sci fi.
Although this is a really simple shot I really like it, good crop and angle.
Maybe it would be better with people flooding off the bus. If that happens.
Like the way youve captured the train in the background.
