Took this one on a trip through a newbuild traintunnel. This weekend, the site was open to public, and beautifully lit accompanied with some nice music. I've been away for a while, so I'm not very familiar with the advanced editing rules. This one is just resized and saved. Cheers.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

First off, this is a great shot! I love the way it meets the challenge with several silhouttes in the shot. The curve of the tunnel draws you in and takes you right through the shot, but on the left side, for some reason I find it a bit distracting, can't quite put my finger on it. It almost looks cut off, maybe if it was more balanced with the right side? The blue light is wonderful though the white ones seem just a tad harsh. The one by the person's head on the left reminds me of the cartoons where you see the train light in the tunnel coming towards you.

The way the shaft of blue light came between that person's leg was also a great capture. Another way to lead you into the shot and take you through. Very nice overall.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck In Future Challenges!

I wish the blue light came all the way out to the foreground at the top and left of the image, it seems unatural as it is, otherwise a very good pic that meets the challenge well, after the challenge I'd like to know how this was processed

I like the setting for this shot and I think you almost pulled it off. A single figure walking towards the light would have made this so much stronger for me. As it is I think it the people in the background are very distracting and take away alot from the image. If I were you I'd reshoot it with a single person in it, I think it would be a really strong image. Good Luck, Todd. 6.

I would have wanted the one bright white light to be covered alittle or should have burned it alittle in photoshop, love the pic though

Mysterious but very effective. I wish the human figures were more seperated.

Over all I like the feel to this one but I have a hard time making out what I am looking at in terms of the people. It looks like maybe parents with two children but one is sort of hidden.

This is a great idea and could be much more striking with better positioning of people. I assume these are strangers rather than friends and would like to see same idea but shot with a willing accomplice when no other people were in the frame. Lovely blue light and love the way a line of it comes straight into the foreground.
