Excellent composition and a superb conversion to Black & White. Good definition - well taken and processed.
Not everything in life is Black & White, If only it were!
Kind Regards,
Rees

Steam engines, private owner wagons, weed infested track and a super mono treatment all contribute to a delightfully nostalgiac view - and what a sky to top it all off.

Thanks everyone. Hard to take this one: peering through a chain-link fence!
Best wishes,

Andrew

This is a very powerfull image that tells a story. A good composition design.
I like the strong lead lines created by the track and the perspective of the wagons. The loco on the right holds the right of the picture. The saddle tank locomotive takes the prime position. The sky adds to the composition and there are no distracting highlights on the edges of the picture. First class.
Friendly Regards
Graham
