Thread: Train coming

    Train coming

    That thread on B+W has got me thinking now. Maybe I should do more B+W. This was shot at a railway bridge near where I live.

    C+C welcome.

    Just a thought; the modern lamps spoil it for me, if they were cloned out, it could be a rather more 'timeless' image.

    Actually, having said that, the bridge sides are quite a modern styling, although it's not so obvious.

    Nice clouds!

    Like the lines, works well as a silhouette for me, think the person makes the shot for me.

    Just being awkward for a moment. Am I correct in thinking the signal is set for stop? It is a long time since I have been near a railway.

    Agree that the clouds with that darker area in the top right corner balances the picture perfectly.

    Geoff,

    Do me a favour; please don't seek employment driving trains in my area

    Can you guess the answer to your question?

    Easy for me, having been an enthusiast since a boy (a long time ago )

    Cheers,

    Shows the benefit of shooting RAW. The clouds were not very prominent as shot in camera. But the RAW edit brought out the contrast.
