Have appreciated all the comments and votes this week. Thank you all so much!
Great lines, colors and shadows... I'm standing with the cup. vote
torpedo the red cup, this is a great shot with or without the thing! It helps to more fully understand the utility of "old-beat-up-transportation" like this which can also be in addition to making for a super shot! Bravo submitter!
Solar, Atope, GFA... and Cali... thank you! Cali is that "damn" in a good way, or more like as with the torpedos?
Cup - No cup, Stick - No .... You either like it or you don't. Personally I liked the stick better, but the rest of the image is very good.
In my top 3. DAMN the red cup!!
Thanks Reiki, glad you like it and for your vote!
Ha Ha ??? ok then I take it all back : ) now that red cup has really been knocked over for a reason. So let the wild rumpus continue... you guys are funny
Noooo! It's all in good fun. I've been called much worse, laugh it off and give it back.
the red cup is full of good cheer... pontification only in terms of your ability to write authoritatively because you do know what you are talking about when you write your comments, but not in an exaggerated way... in case there might be further misinterpretation about my comment I have removed it.
Cali, I think we've been insulted - Submitter you may need to fill that red cup with inspiration and pass it around.
Thanks, Topdogy, I edited this photo both ways, with/with out the cup, and the cup kept winning because of that pop of color and the concept contrast (thanks Irish). I also looked at moving the window message into the left upper 3rds, but then would have lost much of the leading lines. I like the debate, other ideas?
nice shot I like the inside of this bus like how there is a nice had wriitten sign in teh dust just adds to it but personally would have moved teh red cup before or after teh shot love teh various colors in this shot.
Great idea on getting a shot of the inside of this old bus and I like the angle in which you captured it and the colors are beautiful! Red cup? Kind of adds a little more to the story. Great job!
Oooo - a clue and a twist...
Well done submitter. Dang the cup...I guess GFA hasn't played beer pong in an abandoned bus lately. Nice leading lines on left side leading eyes to writing on glass. Color balance and crop are done well. Good luck!
You know me to well. In principle I know where you are coming from and thought about the "party bus" factor. It just seems a little to new and shiny, were you brewing up some inspiration? I will ponder on it further...
Thanks Everyone for your thoughtful comments! GFA, I thought you might question that red cup,
but I think it owns it's place in the photo. Other ideas?
Good lines leading the eye to the front of the bus, exposed nicely with good textures all over. I would have had to get that red plastic glass out of sight, but otherwise nicely done.
like the exposure, the colors...captivating
i like the take on the inside of the bus. I can smell the oldness, and crystal clear, even the hand-note on the glass partition!
Love the details and colours when you zoom in.
What a great subject and inside too. Nice exposure and detail. Well seen and captured. Voted
This is great. Wonderful texture. Gotta vote!
beautiful interior ravaged by time. nice HDR
