Took me a while to comment on this one. First of all I love the subject and the scene, which the processing lends itself well to. There was something that I liked about this which I couldn't put my finger on until coming back here and I just realised it's the long focal length. The compressed image lets the viewer know that you've taken this from a distance which is the not the "natural" way to shoot this subject and it really helps provide a voyeristic feel to this image. That we're keeping our distance somehow from the subject and the trail that is being created. I feel like I'm snooping in on an uninvited scene. The broken glass adds to that feeling of detachment which is very powerful, and very compelling. I love it and while not wanting to overdo this technique, have a feeling it'll make a couple of great apperances in the project. Big vote from me.

Nice find. Like others I would trip over this and find it an annoyance instead of a photo opportunity. Well done.

After "crash" situation - everthing is paralyzed - I see a lot in this picture....

Outstanding shot. Like Duncan I'd probably miss this shot...

I continue to be amazed at your knack of making something out of nothing. Well, I'd look at it and see nothing there...

Like the other one, this even more, has a great mood. Melacholy, loneliness... I'm sure this gallery will be another hit in pbase. Looking forward for more. V.
