@aliqui: Thanks a lot for your support, I appreciate it. :)
Yes, I know it isn't an 'easy' image, no problem...

@oded: about 'overprocessed'...really only minimal editing here, it's a night scenery almost straight from my camera :)

In spite of the low rate I'm really glad about some beautiful comments here, thanks a lot all of you!

I have to agree that I suspected this wouldn't do great here, but 5.1 is a terrible score for this shot. It's getting dangerously closed minded here at DPC, and it's incredibly frustrating. I can't believe that there's comments about the subject being out of focus... sigh.

Very cool pattern created by the reflected sun. I like the shadow person, and how he/she complements the pattern by remaining static, yet moving slightly.

Motion is not clear.

The thing that stands out to me abou this is how dark all the puddles are.

Definitely a hidden gem, and I've enjoyed coming back to it several times, though I've yet to comment on it, a situation I'm now rectifying as I bump you to 8. I get this weird sense that the vent pipe is a submarine periscope, and that just cracks me up.

Interesting patterns and play of light.

Unique shot, quite different from what is usually posted on DPC. I like the motion blur.

This shot held my attention for some time ... very interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:19:26 PM
Interesting shot! Maybe a little dark, but I like the sepia look. The slow shutter gives this a good sense of motion. Good composition and I like the reflections too.

I like the abstract patterns of light and shadow, cool colours. Not so fond of the blurry person.

very graphic, good luck. Will be difficult to appeal to the masses with this style of a shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:55:08 PM
interesting concept shot, I think there is a figure there. possibly it should have been a little more distinct, but still mysterious?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:38:34 PM
This photo speaks to me, but I don't understand the language it is talking in.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 07:22:22 PM
Nice action to create a creepy mood. I like the glowing orangish tone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:23:21 PM
Excellent abstract. The blurred silhouette is so interesting against the stark puddles.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:37:52 PM
This is a neat shot. It has such a mysterious feel to it.

Visually striking--The arrow in the foreground is cool

03/13/2009 05:28:48 PM
Crazy composition but works effectively. I like the high contrast of the environment and the sense of motion.

It's like a ghost walking off to wherever ghosts hang out - nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:04:39 AM
A very beautiful, transcendent vision. All is uncertain and ambiguous, but for the clear voice of the direction marker. It's one of those rare images that, like good blues music, is more about the mood and emotion than it is about the specifics. Like the whole is so much more than the sum of its parts. 8.

03/12/2009 10:02:59 PM
interesting shadows and lines. Not very DP friendly but I enjoy it. Mysterious.

Interesting shapes on the ground
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:58:55 AM
Absolutely gorgeous. I could go on about the technicals, but most importantly tho, for me, I like this even more when I don't think about the technicals. The mood this creates is beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 12:44:00 AM

Really different, like it.

Nice capture. "The long and winding road" with a ghostly figure moving across it all in a straight line. This is picture I could study for some time and pick up / attribute new meanings in / from.
