the sun sets really late in the netherlands (at around 10:30), and if you catch it on a good night, it makes crazy light. i was waiting for a train that evening, and saw the potential of the light. I told my girlfriend to stand there in the light and i took a few snaps of it. Im very happy with the way it came out.

So much and so little happening at the same time. This is great composition and great lighting rolled together. Outstanding.

Nice shot, I might suggest cloning out the green sign on the left, but it doesn't detract from this. The leading lines work nicely with the slightly off center composition

Exceptional use of the silhouette (and shadow!) Lighting is exceptional. The only small point I don't like is the green light near the left edge. Strong submission!

Looks like she just missed it? Beautiful light, nice exposure - she's a tad too central though.

Lovely shot...one of my favourites so far. The only change I might have made would have been to move the person slightly closer and to the left to minimise the "hotspot" on the platform..but overall, it`s a very good image.
Well done...9

She looks out of place. Cool shot though.

very nice

Gorgeous. Maybe the reflection of the sun might work better in front of the girl rather than behind.
