This image really did it for me. It has that empty lonely 4 in the morning feel to it, that you sometimes get when walking around downtown in a city.
Glad it was people free (more deserted feeling!) I gave it a 10. Every photo community is bombarded with city night scapes(getting really tiresome) Glad to see your imagination at work Great Job!

Congratulations my friend for this excellent photo !
I really like the atmosphere.
There's something "strange" in this lonely place , a bit of mystery ...
Excellent exposure and lightning !

I like this. It feels like a small world in itself.

Would have appealed to me more with one person sitting inside. Great shot, gave it an 8 but could have been a 10 with the person.

Every walk up to quiet bus stop this pictures says it all. The end to a busy day, mass transit taking a break All most feel that cool breeze and quietness of once a busy street.

I absolutely LOVE the lighting in this picture. It really makes the framework of the bus stop stand out.....what a wonderful idea! And, I have to say, very refreshing after looking at lots of cityscapes. The tree on the right is well lit. I like how the newspaper box red compliments the other colors in the photo. Everything looks superb and it's a 10 from me!

The lighting (exposure I should say) looks perfect to me, turning what could be a completely mundane scene into a wonderful one.

Nicely exposed, great colours, subject seems a bit mundane though.

Like the color contrasts between the red (postal/paper?) box, the blue chairs inside the waiting station and the luminous light inside that station itself. The sappling is a distraction, as well as the patch of grass on the right bottom corner. It's not within the photographer's control, but I feel that the dirty glass of the station also detracts from the potential impact of the composition, which is generally a very nice product. Perhaps take a windex next time? haha. 7

I think this picture would be better of with the red box in the left corner.

At first I thought this picture was a fake, but then its authenticity was verified when I saw the artist's signature in the second window. You sign all your work?

Very interesting shot! Love the effect the light has.
