An unusual POV of Pukekohe railway station.

Taken during a weekend, I didnít take any risks in taking this photo as the line wasnít exactly as busy as Britomart. LOL.

Great capture of NZ Railways.
The low POV works well for the shot.
With the eye being drawn into the background by the rail.



Hmmm ... looks like a bit of a buckle along the line there.
A great POV making for a really interesting shot.
well done.

Hello Martyn! Dangerous perspective. Fantastic lightness. Nice colors. Perfect capture. Good luck!

Hi Martyn:
A very creative perspective here that I have not seen before:)
Super lighting & details!!!

Is this part of the railway line which is going to cost the government a billion $$$ ??? ;)
Great POV Martyn, nice shot!

Great perspective Martyn, that's a wheel's eye view :)

Perfet angle!I like the depth which the track given! Good POV!

I hope you were safe when you took this picture and there weren't any trains coming around the corner after you. I took some shots like this once too, they are great to take. Very nice shot, TFS.

Hi Martin.Very interesting composition and angle.
Best regards, Bosko.

Allo Martyn,
Great shot with very nice POV. I cannot believe how big the DOF is with only f5.6 ! Do you remember the focal length ?
Have a nice day, Michel

A very unusual but very effective POV Martyn to add wonderful DOF to your composition. (Lucky you to still be able to get down this low :-) I Can't ) Lovely clouds too!
