What a fantastic architectural shot! Perfectly balanced from this low perspective with the escalators splayed symmetrically upward. Your capture and processing convey the shiny metallic surfaces in an almost 3D manner. Because I am prone to anthropomorphization, I can see the focal point being the hungry mouth in the mechanical face, consuming the unfortunate travelers in the middle row. I don't mind the trash, but it is sleeker without it, and sleek is one of its most appealing attributes. This is a really nice image. It would yield as many interesting versions as you have the energy to create, (I'm thinking in the style of Joel Tjintlajaar http://www.photographyoffice.com/blog/2011/06/the-art-of-black-and-white-photography-by-joel-tjintjelaar or our own rborud), but I don't know that any of such would be more appealing than this one. Well conceived and well done.

I'm humbled to even be mentioned in the same sentence as these two masters. Thank you so very much! S-
