This is technically a very nice photo. Some people might like the extreme contrast of the white sky/dark trees and background, but I think it's a bit too extreme. The perspective of the photo dissapearing directly in the center seems really boring to me. I took your photo, and cropped it a few different ways here.

All in all, I think the basic idea was very good, but could have used with a more interesting orentation, as well as a bit less sharpening in the final image.

Love the black and white - almost feels "cold" like you're really there

Railroad tracks are a common take on the" leading lines off into the distance" idea but I love the way this photo does it. The contrast and the composition are great

Nive picture, but the sharpening done here is far from subtle, and although you have great leading lines, the lines lead to nowhere (3)

I'm led - then there is nothing at the end...I feel so cheated.

An excellent example of leading lines.

Lines are good but I'm not sure what subject that they are leading to. Grey border may be a bit too much.

Decent b&w photo. the whites are white, but a little bright for my taste. Washes out any detail in the snow

The lines are here, but what do they lead to?

so far my favorite pic of the challenge! i love the B&W--and the snow does wonders for it--really enhances the contrasts! the composition is wonderful--i like the feeling of looking into infinity! great work.

Like the photo very much,especially the black and white treatment, and the centering of the train tracks - very effective. Fits the challenge well, like the border too. Nice work.

Very nice lines, but I find the contrast too much. I cannot see any detail in the houses and trees down the tracks.

The contrast seems just a little too strong for my tastes, but I still like this shot a lot. I've been finding myself attracted to railways for photos myself lately!

I see perspective not leading lines. Great photo though. I love the b/w.

Great shot. Good angel. 8.

interesting shot, but the lines don't lead to a subject or point of interest... - setzler
