    I got an entry in - yay!

    Went a little left field with this one, but this particular orientation added something for me when experimenting - ymmv!

    I really like it, but I think I would've loved it if it had been right way around :) I know, nit picking, but hey hum! Which ever way, it's a great photo and spot on theme.

    He's being probed as we speak - will be returned once the tracking implant has been inserted......

    Really like this. Personally I'd have preferred it people free, but a great shot

    You know you can lock the screen orientation?
    Drag the settings menu from the top (Android) or bottom (iOS) of the screen there should be an option on there to lock in landscape/portrait format.

    Yeah, just breaks the illusion for me and shows it's the wrong way. Doesn't detract from it at all though, and much better than my own shot of the location during the light festival earlier this year.

    As a "straight " shot perhaps but for me the figure "walking on the wall" is what makes it work for me in the context of the theme....

    I had considered removing the person, I agree with @rancidpunk that it would have made it not immediately obvious that the orientation had been manipulated, and would have made it more abstract.

    However, I'm with Toby on the sense of scale and with Jim in the fact of the conscious decision I made to go for that sci-fi, Inception/Matrix/Doctor Strange type vibe.

    I meant to ask where this was taken?

    Valerian.

    But more likely at Kings Cross station in London.

    I am there (weekday) daily, but only happened across this location by chance (Kinng X is a bit of a maze/warren) and was snapped with my iphone, one of those places when the photogrpaher’s eyes in you light up as soon as you stumble upon it.
