Absolutely goregous! I love the use of warm colors to create a mood. The atmospheric perspective really creates a sense of peripherality, and the overexposure really leads your eyes around the piece. It's magnificent! Great job, and congrats on the contest!
very cool pic. it almost looks like the subway track is set in a pool of molten lava. The sky is a vast impenetrable haze which kind of goes along with the orange hue--the volcanic atmosphere mentioned in the daily deviation description. However, I think it tends to make the background look flat and almost 2 dimensional compared to the subway track which leads us from the foreground into the background--almost as if the entire background is a painted backdrop for the subway track. The atmosphere gives it a subterranean feel, a city deep in the earth nestled against a river of fiery magma.
