Talk about cool. Thanks everyone. I kinda hoped that it would look like it was taken from the train's perpective... hence the headlight effect. It worked for some but not others but I do really appreciate the comments and nice thoughts.

10/30/2006 12:08:13 AM
Notably the strongest image to meet this challenge. The strong human element with the universal "wave" accents the nostalgic beauty of this study. Great work! Congratulations on your Blue!

Great colors and lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2006 04:23:06 PM
the colors and composition are great -- has a bit of everything (leading lines, central AND off-centered subject, person for scale and focal point, dramatic sky and a silhouette for extra credit :) ) -- one of my ribbon picks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/29/2006 05:08:30 AM
Awesome!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2006 10:15:30 PM
Beautiful colors. I love the silhouette of the person stands out against the sky. The picture really draws my eyes deeper and deeper. Nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2006 09:51:10 PM
Good shot. I feel like the person on the bridge is waiving at me. I actually raised my hand and waived back. Awkward but true. Thumbs up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2006 04:08:29 PM
wow, hice shot. I would like to have seen it without subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 03:40:39 PM
Good colors, like the leading lines feeling in this one :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 11:44:06 AM
Very nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 08:25:04 PM
Centered composition works well for this shot - lovely silhouette of the bridge and person.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 02:41:36 AM
I would have liked it better with just the Bridge and no person.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 11:58:28 PM
That is so cool. It makes you feel like you are in the locomotive with the person that is waving on the bridge. Should do real well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 11:05:04 PM
beautiful ..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 10:22:38 PM
great thought to include the person - very nice work - 8 for now
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 07:37:13 PM
Nice photo. I like the use of light and shadows here as well as the vanishing point of the rails.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 12:07:56 PM
The bridge really adds to this. Keeps the viewer constrained some I think. The "waver" is a cute touch. Wonderful job of post-processing. The tones are very nice and you've covered the range quick well. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 06:53:13 AM
wow epic shot could b a winner!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 05:54:03 AM
weel composed, nice processing, the person on the bridge adds a lot of interest. even w/o the title this picture tells a story. bumping up
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2006 05:36:17 AM
good atmosphere - i wish the figure was not waving!

Very close to perfect! Probably a ribbon winner.

Gorgeous shot... love the colors and the silhouette!!! excellent contrast too!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 09:13:15 PM
OOOO beautiful!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 08:29:56 PM
Nice shot. The lighting is interesting. It almost looks like the tracks and grass are lit with a different source than the sun because they should be in the silouete like the rest of the image. Just for fun I bet if you inverted the image it would look like a tornado coming down the tracks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 07:57:11 PM
...and here's the winner!! I think you definitely, AT THE VERY LEAST, have a ribbon for this one. Great job. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 07:08:33 PM
This image, with the title, is quite powerful. I love the vanishing point with the dramatic sky.

The trains gone, you can stop waving now. NIce colors, well cropped

10/23/2006 12:10:04 PM
This picture would have been better without the person on the bridge

10/23/2006 10:56:26 AM

there are some nice shapes here...good edit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 04:31:38 AM
I like the contrast of colours (green and yellow), but it seems that this pic is quite overprocessed. The grass and gravel between the tracks looks heavily burned to me. I like the idea and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/23/2006 01:15:47 AM
Very nice photo like the color and depth...
