I wanted to capture the feel of this rundown industrial town. These tracks were once youthful and thriving, now destitute and forgotten.The model represents the vitality and youthfulness the town has been regaining. I did some editing which included saturation, contrast and brightness and blended the picture by adding layers.

I like a photo with a good back-story. Its a good first entry.
You have some good clarity. Perhaps it appears to the viewer to be titled, too tight of a crop, and should be a squarer frame. A "track level" shot might have given a nice view of the top of that building on the right- or you could leave the top off completely.

The title would work without the person in the image. The person doesn't look forgotten. She's too well dressed and clean and fit to look forgotten.

I like this. the girl in the image is a very nice addition to some great train cars.

Don't really like the slant on this,its not enough to make it seem meant.

I like how the browns are harmonious with each other (even on the model's dress) but not liking the slight tilt. It cuts of the interesting building and seems accidental vs. an artistic choice. And I'm not sure but the image feels a little oversharpened.
