Sometimes you don't have time enough to view all the pictures you've taken. A "problem" introduced by digital photography when te limitation of taking only 24 pictures was lifted. While testing a new printer yesterday i came across this picture, which somehow was new to me.

This does not do much for me.

It shows the movement of the subway train, but other than that it cannot really grab me.

The static elements of the image (the ceiling above the train) is not interesting enough to provide a meaningful counterpoint to the movement.

This would be very different if, for example, we would see a moving train as blurred background to a person standing still on the platform, or any other such combination.

My impression is similar to Roel's -- I'm not finding a compelling "hook" of drama/contrast/novelty to pull me in.  I think the motion dynamic could use a stronger foil than is offered by the overhead area.

It might be interesting to crop off the top just above the black line, then use some variety of art filter to edge-define the blocks of color, thus giving the image an abstract, color-field look.
