I know its a tricky one and the space and distance is always hard to judge on a white blanket....

The picture itself is on a slight slope (towards the viewer) while ther is a slightly steeper slope, just behind the small pine-tree (which is no more than max. 2 feet high) going up and there is another downwards-slope right in the front where the tracks get bigger.

....?

Thank you very much, Bynx - your opinion means a lot to me!

I really like the shot, everything in the shot or not in the shot works well together making a complete picture. Frame it and hang it on a wall or show it in a gallery.

Thank you for encouraging commets, Calicajun!

P.S.: Always wondered about your nick-name, Calicajun - It wouldn't by any chance be a name for a Cajun living in California?

Apologizing, if I have intruded on some private matter which is not my business...

The name was given to me when I lived in Louisiana, coming from California. One of the local newspaper reporters called me The Calicajun when talking about how I went up against the City Council and won. Outsiders in Louisiana are not usually listened too, so it made a bit of a stir when I beat the council. Yes, now I am back living California.
