I like this, the angle works well. I like that the train is moving yet he's very clear, nice job.

I like the angle of this one. Looks like a new-fangled suit commercial. This guy for some reason reminds me of a pilot. Anyway, it's just a little underexposed for my tastes. I think that its pretty good overall though

Interesting angle on this, not sure if it helps make it interesting or it makes it distracting, would love to know if you also did a similar photo at a different angle.

Nice image. Good idea. I like the way that you photographed the image so that the background makes the object more effective to the viewer. One thing that bothers me about the image, though, is the way that the picture is angled. It is disturbing to the eye, and you have to turn your head to look at it. I just dont think it fits.

Captures the motion. Not crazy abou the tilted image.

I like the perspective you chose. It has more impact as apposed to a straight, level shot. Well exposed and composed as well.

Nice perspective and composition - gives the "professional" a determined look. Well done.

I'll probably be in the minority here, but I like your choice of angle on this, and the fact that the man's stoic face is still, while the elements around him are moving. I wouldn't say the main subject was the train that's more in the background, but I won't ding ya for not being "strictly about transportation! If you could have gotten his fact a little sharper, and perhaps less blown out setting sunlight I think this would be one dynamite and creative shot!

Good use of taking the picture at an unusual angle, makes it look a lot more interesting than it actually is.

very well composed !

This is a great shot... the camera angle and the motion blur are very effective. The lighting on the train is also excellent... This looks like it could be an ad for The Wall Street Journal or something :) This could be some stock broker on his way to the daily grind... excellent work... = 10 - setzler

This is exactly the kind of shot I'd expect to find in a stock photo catalogue. Well done - 9.
