This was a serendipitous discovery as I was driving out of the city. To be honest, I was expecting a couple of DNMC votes atleast for these being tram tracks rather than train tracks :P Am very pleasantly surprised at the lack of 1s and 2s in the scoring.

Am thrilled to bits at the score and comments. My first ribbon from Sherpet!

And Oliver's (h2) observation is spot on! I deliberately went for a blue tint - thought it would make the metal look cold and stand out a bit. Also, I sharpened the pic 3 times while trying to figure out why the same pic looked better on my desktop than on the web. Forgot to switch it back to the normal version. Glad the over-over-sharpening didn't hurt much!

Great picture, I do like the symmetry combined with the black and white. Makes the image much stronger.

One of my top picks. Nice decent blue toning. Maybe a tad too sharp.
