A late evening shot of an approaching train. I liked the gleam of the tracks and the limited light available... and I decided it would make an interesting black and white picture,
excellent. Great timing but your perspective and the mood created by the evening fog is remarkable, plus the light on the tracks. All around a real quality image. splendid

i love mode gray of photo!5*****
20 Sep 2010 5:39am
great choice, nice leading line as well!
20 Sep 2010 5:45am
Yep, spot on shot and treatment...and you've got balls for standing on a track agonising over f/stops/shutter speeds/lens lengths and ISO's with a train approaching..or were you the "Chicken" champion when you were a kid??!!

Excellent backligth perspective capture. The POV and lmight are exceptional!
20 Sep 2010 8:46am
In fact it is a superb Black and White, a classic with a strong point of interest. I like this shot a lot.
20 Sep 2010 8:55am
like a movie... absolutely perfect and the B&W also brilliant

Good morning Don,
It is a very beautiful and stylish image. The straight course of the rail and the shine is more than excellent including the overall view. The little flashing light in the background looks like a small star and let me guess how close the train is. For this, you deserve more than 5 stars ***** Thanks for the e-mail. It took us very happy. I answer in the coming days. This morning the sun shines and there are exactly 17.8 degrees Celsius +. The blue sky is slightly covered with white clouds. I think it is a very nice day. We wish you a nice sunny day and all the best, including your family. Take care, my friend. Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

Great image! The train tracks have always been a fascinating, the beautiful night view
20 Sep 2010 5:11pm
Wow ! fantastic perspective and bw. Great work. 5*
20 Sep 2010 5:56pm
Wow this is awesome. How dark was it when you took it? Did you have it on a long exposure to get all that light or was the sun still going down. I want to say that is the sun in the upper left but it could be the moon too. I did a sun shot that looked like a moon.
20 Sep 2010 6:26pm
Oh, wow, I think you decided correctly on the greyscale. Wonderful vantage point. I like how the light of the train is a starburst.
20 Sep 2010 6:59pm
Oh yes..this looks fantastic! A wonderful view on the tracks,the little light and that gorgeous moon
makes it all look marvelous!
lovely scene indeed.. quite haunting actually.. looks like there's even a train heading for you.. :D
20 Sep 2010 7:26pm
Very nice. I like the clarity of the foreground with the crisp edges, and the gentle fog or smog partly hiding the trees sun and approaching train.
20 Sep 2010 7:48pm
Magnifique profondeur de l'image .))
Attention le train arrive !....
20 Sep 2010 7:54pm
Oh, my! Another perfect photo! Not enough words in my vocabulary to describe it. I love B&W, I love railroad tracks, just love all about this.
20 Sep 2010 8:19pm
J'adore!!!! Vraiment sublime!!
20 Sep 2010 8:30pm
Love your title. It's neat to see the train coming down the track. Beautiful night shot.
20 Sep 2010 10:24pm
20 Sep 2010 10:38pm
such an atmospheric capture. nice composition.
20 Sep 2010 10:40pm
wonderful shot!! love the leading view, and the b&w works just beautifully !!!
Black and white is perfect for the shot. My favourite of the day.
20 Sep 2010 11:46pm
Strong black and white...an awesome view and composition.
21 Sep 2010 12:00am
A brilliant image! The mist, gleaming rails, the train, everything is perfect!
21 Sep 2010 12:17am
Seemingly a fairly traditional shot - no way!! The approaching train, tremendous sharpness throughout, rails leading the eye, tonal range, beautifully presented background, and atmosphere - great work, congrats
21 Sep 2010 12:27am
Perfect for b&w. And I love the shiny rails and the moon is a nice balance to the train light. 5 Stars!!
21 Sep 2010 3:25am
Excellent B&W shot, five stars ! Love the composition, esp the leading lines of the rail tracks. Also like the light of the approaching train and the beautiful background.
21 Sep 2010 4:57am
what a nice shot,perfect dof,the greys are so soft.a top management of the light in the corner.great.
21 Sep 2010 6:34am
It makes a GRRREAT b&w... perfect! Reminds me of my daughter's senior pictures, one shot was of her squatted down in the middle w/ the tracks disappearing around a bend behind her
22 Sep 2010 1:11pm
I love the misty quality and the perfect star-light on the oncoming train. Very evocative shot, something mysterious and exciting about trains.
23 Sep 2010 2:56am
the shot is great, but it looks dangerous, there is a train coming
23 Sep 2010 7:56pm
You decided well, Don. The moon and the train light look having some strange invocation.
30 Sep 2010 2:21pm
A way which more tempts to be to borrow that to be to avoid... Lovely shot ! Bravooo :)
24 Nov 2010 10:05am
