Took these last week while on business in DC and was looking at the possibility of filling an empty spot in my print case with one. Would love to hear your thoughts.

I like the lonely platform. If it were mine, I might think about taking out the image of the person coming down the stairway on the left in the background and removing the silhouetted image in the doorway at the top of the stairway on the right. This would increase the feeling of solitude with the only person in the image being the subject in the center right. I think this image will do well - sometimes a near dead center subject positioning is just what is needed, and I think that this is one of those times.

Thanks Rick. That was great advice. Those were easy fixes to take out and make a big difference to me.

Thanks again.

I was going to say the same thing as Rick, regarding the person coming down the escalator. But I LOVE that first one. Oh yeah, I think it's unlawful to actually photograph metro. I've been yelled at for it before. ;)
