Not the one I was originally planning to enter. A little different view, and one that makes me think of what one of Dick Dasterdly's victims tied to the railroad tracks might have seen just before the end ( or just before Dudley Doright swooped into to save the day.

I'm surprised that this didn't get a ribbon. It was my favourite from the challenge and I was certain it would ribbon. The colours are perfect, and the angle and crop add so much to an already great image. This get my vote for most hard done by image in the challenge.

A very unique entry into the challenge with a very different viewpoint. The subtle angle adds a lot to the drama of the image and is a technical and artistic success. This image works on several levels and the dramatic sky just enhances the overall effect. Well thought out and composed, it should be an example of "how to". One minor flaw that might be generally missed is that the image is just a touch over sharpened, but it's not immediately noticable and really requires a close and over critical look. This should be a top ten and almost certainly a ribbon winner. Well done.

Nicely done! A tighter crop I believe would have been better. JMO!

I don't think the tilt adds anything to the pic, it's so slight that it feels like an accident. I think the contrast could use to ocme up a bit. Other than nit-picking, though, it's a cool, fun shot with great colors.

I really like the slight tilt to the composition. It really adds a lot to the shot.

Good shot! Even better w/o the monopole in the backdrop.
