Very nice, would work pretty nice for shadows too eh?

i concur.

Nice bold composition. It seems very desaturated, but not black and white, however this just sets off the shapes of the structures more. I like it :)

I like the use of black and white here. Using color would have taken a lot away from it I think. I love the focus of the bridge up ahead and the tilte is perfect...I feel that way everytime I get in traffic going to work.

Well captured.

I think this is an excellent idea for a photo... my only problem with it is that I think it should have been taken just a little closer to the end of the tunnel where the opening filled a little more of the image.. The tunnel opening is GREAT framing for this shot but I think, for the most part, there is too much darkness around the edges here to suit me... Being closer to the edge *or* zooming out a little more may have been a nice improvement. Im glad i'm not driving in this much traffic :) Good work!

I like the use of framing and the black and white.

I thought B&W at first, but the tailights are a little red. I like how the extreme desaturation simplifies what otherwise might have been a pretty busy image. I like the off centered-ness of the arch too, it makes you feel more 'in the middle' of things than if it had been centered.

Been there, but never with the camera out...

good shot, but this would have been an incredible shot if you could have gotten shot from the center..

Too dark

I like the idea of framing the bridge with a tunnel. It might look better if taken from the middle late so the bridge could be perfectly centered.

Neat perspective.
06/10/2002 02:43:00 PM
interesting affect. The subdued color is great, I think this is the best, I am bumping you up to a 9
06/10/2002 02:28:00 PM
Great framing job.
06/10/2002 12:59:00 PM
I hate rush hour traffic too. But nice picture goob contrast, I would like more detail in the shadows.

Such an impressively framed/focused/composed photograph for obviously being in a moving car. The contrasts of this photo are outstanding, and I just love the entire composition. Great job.
