  • lots of really interesting graphic elements here – the “ALL”, the line of lights, the shadows under the track. can see why you took this. my favorite part is the rust color from the building reflected on the train – looks so interesting against that silver.

  • i like how this looks really geometrically symmetric.. somewhat like a reverse “L” or a “J” with the train going diagonally up the left frame.. :D excellent shot! :)

  • Nice “compressed” city shot. Very visually interesting.

  • Really nice shot, i love the framing. Thanks for your visit home !
