I really like this composition Ian. The reflection in the glass adds an extra dimension to the capture. Well done.

Best regards, Tom

I like your railway set, Ian. As Tom said, the composition of this is very good. In part it's balanced and in part intriguingly unbalanced! There's an interesting tension.

Best wishes, Marilyn

Yes, Tom and Marilyn, without the reflection it is a pretty tame image. I found the real challenge was getting enough strength of light and color in the reflection. Your constructive comments are always so affirming, and at the same time point me to elements that help my development. Sincere thanks to you both.

Terrific composition Ian. The mirrored wall really helps give the impression of a much larger space.

This was the last train for the night - 11.10pm - and shortly later, it left. The guard kindly permitted me to pass through the carriage to this platform, for I explained to him that as I had seen the "mirror" surface, I would not be long. I do not use or own a tripod, but always seek out surfaces on which to firmly hold the camera - and I had seen one so it would be a very quick photo opportunity! I did not delay the trains departure with about 2 passengers.

I appreciate your appreciation, Paul.

Thanks for your comment cbjo, but you must admit most of the work is the work of the architect!

Ian Very good shot with depth of field effect. The gold and silver reflections are well combined. The reflection of the train is realy perfect! Best greetings

Thank you for your appraisal, Antonietta. Dream of riding this train one day!
