WOW!!

A personal best all around for me.

Thank you so much everyone that voted & left such wonderful comments.

The night this photograph was taken, the train in front of my train broke down on the way home & we were parked up for over an hour untill it was fixed so we could all move on. Coming in 4th place just makes it all worth while.

Incedently , if you want to draw attention to yourself in a train station, try lying down on the floor with a camera, You will be amazed at how fast security guards are on you wanting to know what your doing. I would of thought the camera would have given it away.

I showed the security guards the photographs that I had taken & they didn't seem to bad about it this time but I have had problems in the past here when I took photographs fot the Lucky Seven challenge. That day I was moved on by the security guards. I think their biggest worry is not terrorism but someone taking photographs for profit & the owners of this station missing out on their cut. Well that was the impression I got that day.

Emphasis on relation of the close and far environmental detail creates a bizarre pov for this train station visual & color edit contributes. I enjoy this. Congratulations.

An image that fascinated me while voting. I never got back to bump and I feel bad because I left it a shameful 6. Regardless, Congratulations on your 4th place.
