Yeah, right up until my Band Name entry garners the brown. OK, maybe not brown, but certainly 12th page indifference. :-(

Congrats on the top 10 finish, well done!

No, no...yours was an honest critique, and absolutely appreciated. I did look at a B&W edit, but in the end I felt the graffiti lent a little to the image. I'm still trying to nerve myself up for a midnight visit.

The tonemapping is a bit too strong for my taste. It's
nevertheless a nice picture.

Over-processed, over-softened, over-saturated, and unnatural.....what's not to love about this wild & vivid image???? Nice!....8

Really like the coloring and the processing works well although I don't usually like this type processing. Again, just a picture of a tunnel....I think something or someone stuck in it might have added a little.

I like the processing.

Beautifully textured. Maybe a touch over saturated in the background green but I do like it.

the processing is so overdone in this...perhaps a b and w with some nice work on the tones would have been better...this looks a bit garrish :(
