What an interesting picture Lydia! The tilt really does throw you off balance and then forces you to look around the photo to find a grounding point. What a different composition - very cool.

Interesting and engaging but the tilt feels like a trick here rather than adding to the picture.

After looking at photo after photo of just trains and tracks I like the fact that you have introduced a human element to your picture. The Sepia tone works well as does the tilt. Well done.

Simple, beautiful and elegant. The slightly overdone rail highlights are a minor flaw not noticable until the viewer really looks closely. Very effective use of monotone to create a sense of times past. Very well done and should be a top ten entry.

OMG, wow, love the angle, i think you croped it just right, it has to be a 10 from me

Overall it's a nice shot, I'm torn on the angle, and do I want to see more or less of the model. JMO! I guess I will have to wait to see the outtakes if you post them.

Nice take on the challenge - love the tones, like the dynamic of the angle, and really like the trees in the left corner.

Very nice shot but I think i prefer it without the angle

Already voted, back to comment. I like the feel of this shot. The angle is nice and the barefeet are a nice touch. I think the tone works well. The only thing I really don't like is the cowboy hat, not exactly sure why I don't like it, but I just don't. Didn't take points away for it because it's my problem not yours :-) 10
