Fantastic tones and shades through this shot. Your highest rated shot, which is perfectly understandable considering the shot. Well done.

the sky is very cool looking but it doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the photo

I say this alot on those very special photos -- but I am in awe at people who have the eye to see the extraordinary in the ordinary and execute it to perfection like this!

Congratulations on a personal best for this aMAZING photo!

I like the coloring of this photo. It makes me see this as a transitional photo. Sepiatone at the top, Black&White at the bottom, and rusting away in the middle. The days of railroads are all but gone, and this photo seems to bring out that soon they will be a faded memory. Great job!

not sure about the title but I like the golden brown tones and the dirtier side of trains -- one of my favorites this challenge

Great shot. Really captures that "days gone by" feeling. Sepia tone adds a lot to that as well.

Desolate. Lack of color works really well here.

I'm not to keen on the image, especially the distractions in the foreground. That being said, something REALLY draws me into the colors and filter used. Not sure what it was, but I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the use of sepia.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 06:41:35 PM
Great sepia tone. I love it. I would have cropped the part beyond the train.
