That looks like a cool slide. That really is a great colour button on that thing. i should have got you to show me which one it was. I can't explain why but i think my eye would have liked a slightly tighter crop on top to the next arch down. I know i speak crop alot. Typical mal long exposure magic.

Woo, dizzy... great colours and very abstracty. Is this really an escalator? It seems to transport you to the end of the tunnel smile j/k Are those ppl at the other end?

Wahooooo it's Dr. Who's Time Machine! Some awesome slip n sliding to be had here, Mal! I enjoy this futuristic theme you have going here, or do I just watch too much television? Cheers Mal!

All the best,

8 seconds? Absolutely wonderful effect, I don't know where you got this idea or inspiration, but is truly amazing! Great one, Mal.

HA! That's cool. It looks like a slide rather than an escalator. smile
Love to go down there on a skateboard.

It almost looks like a man made waterfall with the motion blur. But somehow I think the notion of jumping in an inner tube and sliding on it would be absurdly stupid. =P
Very nicely done Mal!

Very impressive : Bravo !!
Wow - great capture.
Absolutely excellent Mal, I really like this.
It's like being on the inside of a lazer gun and you're the bullet ready to go.

You might be a blurist but you are a perfectionist more so!
interesting one my scotish friend
Very nicely spotted, Mal! Why am I not surprised?
Fan dabby dozy, quite spectacular.
