Nicely done. Love the low angle on the single rail. The tree lines complement the vanishing points of the single rail and the track itself. Welcome.

Of the 1st two I prefer #1 as it seems more horizontal. The last one is good as well, causing me to wonder what was out there beyond that depression.

Welcome to the forum, Pacey. The first shot isvery creative. Both detail and exposure are good. As Walter stated, the angle used certainlygives the image a total differentand uncommon perspective.The second shot is OK. I like the colors but positioning the camera in a crooked position does not do much for me (perhaps it would if I worked for MTV - they like to use this technique). IMO the last one is a good candidate forSepia due to its rustic look - the tracks look old andabandoned (here's my version...hope you don't mind).

I like the first shot the best although I think it might be even more interesting if you centered directly over the rail. All three pictures have vanishing points and convergence. The last is the classic shot that we have seen several times in this challenge.

Pacey,

Well done. From a creative apspect I prefer the first shot because of the unsual perspective.

Howver, are three are good and meet the challenge.

Aloha
