[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last weekend I drove through Otaki and stopped near this railway bridge which cross the Otaki River.

I decided to take this photo from a more "down to earth" POV, the rail track seemed irresistable with the reflection of the sky and clouds on the well-used polished metal. TFV.

Perfect composition, good use of rule-of-thirds placement.

Hi Martyn
very strong composition.
Gr Jos

Great Eye view. Very often we do not notie such views, but you have captured it well.

Thanks and cheers,

Thats a very shiny rail track Martyn.
The ones down here are all covered in rust!
Very effective POV and composition.
Great work!

Original PoV Martyn, the shiny track must mean its well used - hope you had a lookout.
well done

Great idea, really sharp, and the focus and colors look awesome.

Hi Martyn,
Good POV, composition is well balanced. The reflection on the rail is very good, not easy to catch. Good work.
