Looks like this is going to be my personal best so far. Thus, I give some more details. This is a crossover underneath Wynnewood train station (R5 SEPTA train). The built is symmetrical (with a couple stairs straight at both ends then a little plateau and further stairs going up to the surface perpendicularly to the crossover). Because of heavy raining some water was puddling on the plateau part and that's where I placed the camera. I forgot my little 'gorillapod' somewhere, so 'creatively' put my camera on an unopened pack of pocket tissues placed into the puddle. Used 10 sec self-timer and ran across to be the figure in the exit.

Wow, 4th place! Thanks for all the great comments! This little Leica brings me a lot more shooting opportunities as it is almost always with me.

A good chosen point of view which provides a separate photograph with an unusual reflection.

This has a very odd perspective in it, and it takes time & study to realise what & how it is. Intriguing capture.

Creepy, in a good way. What's the reflection? Is it a car window half down? It' confusing me, but didn't make me rate the photo any lower.

LOVE this. Very artfully presented.

Nice lighting, and the centred composition really works for me. The heavy black border at the top though does throw out the balance.
