this looks like one of the streets that cuts through central park. the road being surrounded so closely by walls creates a dramatic feeling that you intensify with camera angle, color, tone and yes, motion blur. 8

Very evocative of dusk and urban decay. I am finding the yellow lines distracting as I look at it, though. I think there's a very strong sense of the cab "descending" into something, without the added emphasis that the yellow lines provide.

I Like the composition, subject and contrast used to evoke mood. The motion blur appropriately adds to the image. Really cool work!

Nice simple clean shot. The taxi is in nice motion against a beautiful crisp background. The color in this shot is fantastic. Great job.

One of my faves of the challenge. Love the postprocessing work and the blur truly enhances this picture. Bumpin up a couple.

Back to bump this striking shot by 2. I love the composition. Great work on the color here - yellow line & cab look great in contrast to the walls & pavement. 9

I really like the tones in this shot. I like how you allow the cab room to travel through the shot. Good composition. My only problem with this shot is the fact that the yellow lines in the center of the frame are really bright; the viewers eyes always travel to the brightest part of the photo. I think if the cab were the brightest part of the photo it would have more impact. I gave you a 9. Good Luck!

This is one of favorites. I like how the only color to speak of is the yellow, and how the line compliments the cab. I like the texture of the walls quite a bit as well.

Yellow cab and lines, narrow road plus the blur make a great photo here.

Really nice setting, looks like you spent a lot of time in PS. It works for me, I like it.

I like your choice of location for this shot. The angle it gives you works well. The yellow works well with the surrounding bleakness. Did you consider doing a desat on this to make the yellow pop even more? Good luck in the challenge.

great idea with the yellow lines they add more to this photo

reminds me of the tv show taxi like the blur and the walls are nice and sharp nice.

Super cool composition, also like the artistic PP. Definately my top pick of the challenge.

Perfectly timed for the effect. The grimey colours work well with the yellow lines and taxi. Very nice. 8.

the colours, textures, feel, composition are all top notch here. i'm pleased you made the sensible choice to have the cab moving in lieu of panning with it, those walls are brilliant. i also like very much how the yellow lines are so bright and bold. great choice of subject matter as well, genius in fact! 9.

The only really interesting part of this image is the great PP you did on it. Other than that it is rather boring IMO.
