Nice, some other great entries!

dwsel, very good mood you have going on, I like all the atmospheric effects, I feel there could maybe be a shadow on the curtain of the window on the right, to give the scene a bit more of a story ;)

ensoniq, love your work! great models and scene, but I feel the lighting and atmosphere could use some work still. The lighting in the metro could be more pronounced, and outside it could maybe be a bit darker/fog/rain. Nice touch on the texture on the right side haha.

I love the stuff that's coming out of Anim8or here!

The lighting has actually been the most difficult part of this.  By rights the inside of the carriage should be brighter and the outside darker, as you suggest, but that has the effect of reducing the contrast outside and making the shadowy figure difficult to see.  It also increases the intensity of the reflected carriage interior on the glass, further obscuring the detail outside.  The girl is obviously the focus of the image but if the dark figure is too difficult to see the image loses its 'story'.  Hmm, I will ponder the options.

Nice scene ensoniq5... i agree with simon: it could use some more contrast in the lighting. Still I like the compositing and nice models.

@dwsel: The colored one looks nice! But still I think the desaturated one has a bit better mood to it.

No time to re-render, but I have reworked the original.  I removed the soft dark 'vignette' around the edge, which was intended to make the image more oppressive but just made it darker really, which has brightened up the carriage interior a bit.  I have also included the straight colour render for comparison.  No time for more fiddling, the b&w one will have to be my final.

Thanks! And congratulations for all. This time level was really, really high and maximum number of votes was quite limiting, as all entries were good in some manner and it was hard for me to choose because I wanted to give a point to everyone.
