Thank you. The picture was taken on a bright sunny day, which did not quite match the mood of the industrial scenery (not to mention the bright orange safety markers). I softened the image slightly, cleaned up some trash near the tracks and converted to B&W, which seems to work nice (or at least better than the original image I took).
Great use of focus and line for this image. I like how the cars and railway effectively "lead" the picture across. This gives the shot some character. I guess this also combines with the way the cars align with the trees as well. Overall, brilliant capture
Thank you. I was trying to create an impression of an industrial scene without the usual tricks such as high contrast and "grungy" color tones. I had to convert to B&W because the original was somewhat overexposed and also the yellow safety markers were distracting. The lack of foliage on the trees kind of helped in creating a lifeless desolate picture.
