Last weekend I spent some time going up and down to different levels of a parking garage that overlooked an intersection of some of CTA's elevated train tracks -- waiting patiently for trains to pass.

[Nov. 20th, 2016 10:54:37 PM]

The parking garage was not well designed to get a picture from the corner. I climbed onto a planter box that was as close to the corned as I could get. It was chest high, and, as I reached out as far as I could with my camera, I wondered if it had been designed to hold a 170 lb. man leaning out as far has he could.

This did a bit better than I expected. Easily a new PB after 700+ challenges. Wow.

Great capture. Makes me dizzy even viewing it. Still very impressive work.

Congratulations on the Blue & the PB, Mark. This is a classic & an instant fav. Pleasurable to look at for the tones, shapes, & lines -- & the variety of textures. Perfect for BW. Well done.

Whoa! The story! *eek*

Danger! :D

It's certainly well-composed. A bit of jaggies on the curves of the rail lines... but certainly deserves congratulations!

Congratulations, Mark!

I suppose I could research it, but I wonder if this is the largest margin of victory on DPC. It's got to be close.

Wonderful catch and story. I'm sure the surveillance camera monitors had a good laugh. Congratulations!

My only 10 in the challenge.

This is EXACTLY what I thought when this challenge came out.

Didn't have the time to shoot for it, but I'm glad to see this in blue! :)

Congrats.

Wow very good indeed Mark. Now I am not sure if climbing on to that planter box could be described as very good but you lived to tell the tale:) Congrats!!

Wonderful image, best of the bunch by a long way IMO.

Scintillating asymmetry. It almost looks like a toy railroad.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2016 07:35:26 PM
This has to be the Blue. The convergences/intersections/conjunctions are unmistakable, the perspective is amazing, the tones and focus are crisp. An easy 10 from me.

Even without the limitations of the challenge I find this a very engaging image - my only 10.

Very strong composition, and good tones.

It's black & white but it has blue written all over it :) My top pick.
