Hi Torr!
Beautiful composition, pleasant, accentuated perspective taking the glance for far away...

Expectintg trains that seldom pass by ... But the beauty is in waiting, the images we build while we patiently stare at the horizon, fantasizing about what is to come, to happen, the surprise ...

Just as we all wait for the reaction to freshly uploaded pic.

Well, the waiting is over and the result is - magnificient. I love the colors 'fading' from brown upfront to pale in the background.

I wish though that 75 sign is not there. It somehow looks so brand-new and modern for the otherwise eternal paysage.

Great work.

Like a painting with them different lights giving an amazing depth to your compo, Torr. Great mood captured. Follow up the track and be surprised what's up to come around the corner.... Wonderful. TFS.

great contrast between the images in the front and background, between the strong rails and soft grass, sky and stone. Nice colours and sharp photo with good composition. Nice work.

This is a wonderful capture. The color goes just perfect with the overall mood of this photo. Well thought of and composed.

WOW. I feel as though I am standing on the tracks. Brilliant!

It took you a long time to arrive here, but I think it was well worth it. This is a lovely scene. I like the composition and the 'aged' colours of the grass, etc. Also the dust blowing around the top corner is very attractive. I like this a lot. One of my favourites.

Beautiful composition Torr, excellent capture.Great detail right from foreground to background. TFS

Hi Torr,
Very nice photo. Magnificient colours, first rate composition and POV.

This is great! I love your perspective. The railroad tracks seem to cut the image in half. I also like how it is dark on the left side and lighter on the right. Nice job!

Beautiful scenery, nice tonality and composition.
I find it's a bit under exposed on the left side. It would be great if you can show a bit more details of that big rock.

HI Torr,
Nice landscape, good POV, it was worthy to wait

take care, Stef

This is beautiful Torr.
Ratios are perfect. POV DOF colors are great. I like the white background, it's almost like a drawing!! TfS

heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllll schoon waarom???


Het doet me denken aan die film 'Lost in La Mancha', ik weet niet waarom. Prachtig gedaan, de zachte kleuren zijn fantastisch.

le cadrage est vraiment bien réalisé, le détail des tons clairs/obscurs ajoutés à la qualité de l'image !!! une superbe photo. franch'ment bravo Torr

Hi Kurt,

Allez vooruit... Kom ik na een hele tijd nog 's op TL zie ik dit pareltje :).
Mooi gedaan Kurt, niks voor verbetering vatbaar, al zou ik die rail echt helemaal uit de linkerhoek laten vertrekken.
