    For me the (potentially lovely) image is ruined by that box in the foreground... I can't quite understand why you included it in the shot

    I didn't want to get run over... Actually I liked it. For me the out of dof box is the shot, but then I suppose I'm not conformist. I did another just the same but had some bother with getting the blue right.
    In print I mean because it is right here.

    I prefer the top one, it is different while you can really see what it is about. Others do different things.

    It's not real Katy, the voice is Ringo the drummer out of the Beatles.

    Against my better judgement here is one of his friends:

    our well-loved beat up copy.

    And, then, you just wouldn't believe it. Tom's mom's husband is Sir Topham Hat (to be PC)! He works at the national level in Washington D.C. for the Federal Railroad Administration.

    My favorite is Duck.

    Cheers Katy; I didn't know Thomas travelled to the States and my favourite was Gordon.

    With regards to the top pic I think it (the scene) could therefore be improved with the addition of a person walking towards the phone, but since it is illegal to walk along the track here a higher aspect moving the phone down and to the left might be better.
    I do not want a pic of a train or tram or any machine unless I can put it into a scene, and I am a bit guilty of allowing things to obscure what could be perceived as the main subject, which I try not to have in my pics but sometimes it is unavoidable.
    It could also benefit from a sharper phone but I didn't want to completely blur the train and the gantry.
