General
impression
A well executed photograph in the genre' of Architectural Photography. There are no perspective distortions and exposure shows all the detail in the subject. The slight motion blur adds a live feel to the image.

this subject has been used a lot, I like the use of colour at the base of the escalator almost in a rainbow arc.

How to improve your photo
1.
there is a slight green cast in the highlights you could add magenta to filter this out
2.
There is an area to the left of the image at the top of the ecalators which is different coloured stainless steel this could be matched to the rest of the steel in photoshop or other editing software
3.
When taking formal architectural photoraphs try to tidy the area as much as possible. There appears to be a white plastic lid at the base of the escalators.
