Wow, I like this! Of course, people always look at me like I'm crazy when I'm lying on the ground to take pictures of gravel and sand! Ha Ha. What I love about this is that it is more than just a closeup picture of a rail. It's leading line takes you straight to the city skyline. The haziness of the city leads you to believe it is far far away across a blistering hot prarie. Very nicely done!

Nice bokeh, and I haven't even voted in that challenge yet! I do like this - but I think having a bit deeper depth of field would be nice - let us see just a bit of that second rail.

Really nice image here. Great dof. Very solid concept, and the title even ties it together nicely. Good job.

Nice, unusual view point. The city in the distance really enhances this image. 8.

DOF could be a tad deeper to have the silhouette of the city more recognizable

nice idea, but the focus decision seems a bit unorthodox.
