This is a great shot. I like the reflection of the power line polesthat can be seen in the rail.

The sense of depth is awesome and it feels like I can just walk into my monitor and be right there.

I like the perspective on this shot, and the rail on the right looks very kool, but therest of the pic seems to have a texture that doesnt belong. I dont know, maybe im just tired and seeing things, but something just doesnt look quite right.

Of all the pics you've posted tonight, this one I like the BEST!
It's the 'perspective' that does it for me.

Rail on :!:

You should have seen me; prone with the rail running down the center of my entire body, ouch, and the FZ propped in front.
I used the EV to setup in manual mode, did a manual focus and then covered my head with a towel, switched to the LCD back for composition.

Are you referring to how everything looks brown or sepia? This is what initially caught my attention. It is an active railroad bed and you are looking at an accumulation of iron oxide all over the place. In most rail situations, you would not see so much of it, because the filings / dust oxidation would be occurring at a slower rate. This spur is less then a mile from the ocean and 1000 feet from a channel. If you look carefully, you can see the drawbridge in the distance.

This explains the brilliant shine this rail has due to so much traffic.

Just then I heard a rather loud rumble and a blasting horn. Not thinking much of it I continued to compose. Luckily, I remembered what man-made beast makes that kind of noise :shock: ........

Great rail photo..

I am glad you found something you liked. People have such varied taste and it is hard to please everyone. What is very surprising is the amount of people who looked and did not comment.
