Nice idea, but unfortunately not more than a snapshot.

Seems like a snap shot. The station doesn't do a good job at selling the train -- seeing more of the train would be nice.

If it's better than driving, perhaps showing one without cars in background would be better?

This would make a nice ad for public transportation if you focused in on just the train.

More an ad for a service than the product specified in the challenge, but really more a snapshot than anything. Might have been more effective to think of some way to show that the SEPTA is better than driving - like a view of the train speeding past a line of stopped traffic or something.

With the image description this would of worked if there was a shot of the train going by a congested highway or road.

Your caption makes me look around for the traffic jam. How did you get that angle without being crushed or arrested?

Interesting point of view; hope you didn't get run over :-) Nice picture, but a little flat.

different take on the challenge, but I think I'd want something that implies more motion and getting there on time...

kind of just a plain photo here. doesnt look very much like an advertisement

What are we selling here, what is appealing? Sorry :(, I don't get it.

i don't want to sound too harsh, but this photo just doesn't have an advertisment feel to it without being told so.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2002 01:20:00 PM
good idea, but not very good photo

Good composition. I love trains so this immediately caught my eye. 2 negatives. 1. The train is not standing out enough.. the balance is more on the empty loading area. Maybe that could be solved with different lighting? Or different angle?. 2. The picture should have been taken with a crowded platform.

i keep reading this as septa: it's better than drowning...
This is a great public service statement, but as far as 'ad' impact or appeal, it's lacking and i can't really explain why other than to say that an ad depicting one of these flying past say, a bumper to bumper highway 'parking lot' would work better...

I think for the title we should of seen happy riders. However, I do understand your point. Nice clean photo but the W in Warminster is cut off. Good idea but if the title wasn't there what would this photo say to someone?

i think this would been stronger if you had zoomed in on the train car. that would have ruled!

I, personally, would have tried to make the train cars a larger part of this photograph...
