Hahaha! I just realized this is your lovely bride Beth! Makes me enjoy the image even more than I first did :-)

There is so much good about this shot. I kind of like the fact that she is laughing. It almost seems like a parody of those old shots. Great costume and sepia. I think you are off to a great start working with models. The slight tilt is the only thing I might change. Good work!

What a great take on this challenge! So well done too! Another one that seems incredibly underrated. The sepia tones and the way she's dressed give it such an awesome nostalgic feel to it!

similar to my origianl idea:) you need a dastardly man with a handle bar mustache. I like the tone you used. the models expression looks more like laughing than screaming but great job overall. 9

You've taken a very simple and perhaps obvious idea and pulled it off masterfully. Great choices in your pp approach!

Nice photo!
Does the model seem to be laughing a bit or it's just me? ;)

Help is on the way:) I score this to do well. It put a smile on my face, and that's always a good thing. Nice job!

LOL! She looks more like she's cracking up than yelling help. The boots are a lovely touch, as is the hat!

The subject looks more like they are laughing than crying for help IMO. The composition and coloring are good. I like the amount of noise or blur in the background too. 6.

She has the giggles! A train is coming. :) Very cute and the tones are perfect for this shot. Well done.

It would be clearer if you used rope to tie her. At first I thought she was just parking off laughing.

Hehe, cute idea :-) Good composition. PP is fitting. Nice job.

Like the rustiness of the shot...the girl seems to be laughing and not really fearing for her life...still a solid shot.

Man your tracks are set apart heaps

10/23/2006 06:55:19 PM
Nice idea. I love the sepia, and how the track fades out in the distance.

Very cute idea! I love it, extra points for getting someone to do this for you, also love the tones in this one, so far one of my top 10 picks. 9

I think the victim should not be laughing at a time like this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 11:46:57 AM
You model is smiling a little too much... or is that shouting. Nice colour/tint and overall composition. More fun than fear ;-) 8.

lol. I hope you knew what you were doing. Anyway, the angle you took the picture gives the impression that the railroad is leaning towards left (which I think it was not the case). I know you tried to get the lady to be on the horizontal, but when looking at the whole picture, she's sliding to the left also. I think a small rotation to the right would have helped. Otherwise nice shot! I like the sepia tone (maybe toned down a little?) and the sureal look on the bushes (trees).

I can't help but think of the song -
Along Came Jones by The Coasters (last verse)

I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another show
But there was the same old shoot 'em up and the same old rodeo
Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap sack
He said, 'If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
I'm gonna throw you on the railroad tracks!'
And then he grabbed her (And then)
He tied her up (And then)
He threw her on the railroad tracks (And then)
A train started comin' (And then, and then...!)

And then along came Jones
Tall thin Jones
Slow walkin' Jones
Slow talkin' Jones
Along came long, lean, lanky Jones

Priceless! I think she's laughing! The sepia is so fitting for this shot, love it..
