Badass.

Tres badass.

I always loved the view from the platforms at Parliament... and this is just the photo I wanted to see of them. Something special in that bend... well captured.

The only danger was from security :lol: You see we're already banned from taking photographs in Melbourne train/subway areas :|

That's a beautiful photograph. I adore the lights, the intensity of the colour is just simply beautiful. I love the way that if you change your perception, it looks as if you're falling right into it. Fantastic. Rock on :D

I love the lighting, kind of gives the picture life, many subways look much uglier, another reason to hate the subway. ^^; I like the picture good luck in the contest!

Wow, this is really great. The lights give it a particular haunting feel about it.

But I'm curious: what platform is this, what direction are you facing, and from where did you take the shot? It almost looks like you're standing in the tunnel.

I also observe you're a Superjesus fan by the title. :D

Parliament station, on the right side as you come down the stairs. Looking from the edge of the platform up the tunnel :nod:


And you're right, I don't mind the odd bit of Superjesus ;)

Fantasitc colour and composition. Good skill evident here due to tricky exposure. It's the composition for me though; it gives a unique angle. Strong contender this! :) Well done.

Another extraordinary piece as always. :)
Love the lighting, colour and the composition, it's got a really nice old and sort-of rusted feeling, because of the yellowish lighting, the graffiti on the wall and the electrical wires going overhead.
This should get at least a runner-up in the competition, in my opinion.

Scott,

That's just simply a brilliant shot you got there! I like the fact that there's lots of "leading features" in the railway! As again, great shot as always! :hug:
