    I like them all. Without a dramatic sky, the playground lacks a bit of impact compared with the previous images but sometimes you can only do your best with what is available.

    The second photo with a water jet going 'through the centre of the sun' is an absolutely brilliant idea.

    And those railway tracks look as though they really do go on into infinity.

    I like the railway tracks the best ... the sunlight reflecting onto the tracks is what makes it the best for me.

    Hi Jeroen,

    I like them too, especially 1,2 and 3.
    Can't decide between 1 or 2 as my favourite.

    Do I detect a hint of oversharpening on the birds?
    They all seem to have a white edge in the sky just ahead of their wings.

    The compositions on all work well, congratulations,

    Very nice, especially 1 and 2 for me. The sunset reflected on the rails is a nice touch and the sun set and agricultural sprinkler tell a familiar story.

    @ Dave
    I checked the original photo for the white lines and they where already there. They only are a little bit increased by highering the contrast and saturation. I don't exactly know where they came form. The light of the sunset was the only light on the scene.

    No 1 and No 2 push the right buttons for me. No1 especially reminds me of my youthful nocturnal wanderings with a 410 You could always get one or two for the pot in the undergrowth along the tracks at that time of day.
