Beautiful all those tracks leading in different directions, like in life, and the post processing brings the texture out even more, excellent capture!
3 Mar 2009 6:49am
Love the high contrast gritty quality to this. It really suits the graphic nature of the image.
3 Mar 2009 6:59am
A high contrasted B&W who shows well to advantage the graphism of this symbolic picture. Like that.

This is a terrific abstract. Well done.

A wonderful graphic composition! Love the textures and the pattern of the tracks.

Superb composition and contrast. Love it :) Now i wonder, where do those tracks lead? Somewhere nice and worth going? Maybe hop on the next passing train to find out...
3 Mar 2009 10:50am
beautiful perspective and great b&w process
3 Mar 2009 10:51am
Nicely done. Love the patterns.
3 Mar 2009 11:38am
Great composition and the processing is very well done.
Perfection of title, quote and photograph, something I have come to expect from your amazing talents, Sharon, and yet I am never less than delighted and in awe of the work as it appears. Fabulous
3 Mar 2009 11:42am
Amazing contrast and composition. Great work!
3 Mar 2009 12:07pm
I like the strong visual imapact and the sense of movement.

3 Mar 2009 12:21pm
Plenty of options for directions there, who knows indeed where each track will take us? I like the high contrast treatment.
3 Mar 2009 1:05pm
A simple image for a complex idea. Good processing.
3 Mar 2009 1:12pm
I like this. Great textures. The quote is a real thought-provoker.
3 Mar 2009 1:14pm
wonderful composition and pp! those tracks look to be from a toy train with fresh tracks in the snow!@ I like that you left in just a peek of the train!
3 Mar 2009 1:57pm
WOW! Ce sont des photos que j'aime vraiment beaucoup! The ambiance is powerful and we can say it's a dummy tracks...
3 Mar 2009 3:15pm
Exceptionally brilliant composition and amazing black and white toning.
3 Mar 2009 3:23pm
Great work on the framing and B&W toning
3 Mar 2009 3:32pm
Decisions, decisions. best...jerry
A very strong graphic presence - love the lines crossing yet heading in the same direction.
3 Mar 2009 4:04pm
You have so many brilliant images to your credit. But this one really grabs me for some reason. Perhaps because it such a strong image so perfectly processed. At any rate, I love it.
3 Mar 2009 4:29pm
What an amazing shot! What a wonderful image.
3 Mar 2009 4:39pm
Such wonderful contrast, textures and beautiful lines!!! Great find and it's perfectly composed!
3 Mar 2009 4:43pm
I like a lot the composition. I think that maybe the level of focusing is so much high, byt is a good shot
3 Mar 2009 4:53pm
A very suitable title, clever composition aided by the title. The processing is spot on, very archivy/old look. A lower perspective might have even been better, but I guess that's a bit difficult here :)
3 Mar 2009 5:07pm
Good composition and interesting patterns!
You get the feeling that the picture is very old!
3 Mar 2009 6:02pm
What a great line with this one. So true with a perfect image to go along with hit.
3 Mar 2009 6:03pm
le contraste renforce l atmosphère et invite au voyage, superbe cliché ^^
3 Mar 2009 6:15pm
Un très beau graphisme pour un voyage imaginaire!
3 Mar 2009 7:17pm
Precioso juego de líneas. Gran composición y muy buen procesado. Un saludo.
3 Mar 2009 7:22pm
As in life, converging or diverging depends on the direction or on the mood.
3 Mar 2009 7:25pm
Seems so simple, but so effective. Great graphical frame!
3 Mar 2009 7:58pm
What a remarkable picture Sharon, in its simplicity, in its crop, in its contrasts. An eye-catching invitation to reach the nearest station...
3 Mar 2009 8:04pm
Ahh... you've romanticized the switch with great composition and contrast. Nicely done.
3 Mar 2009 8:06pm
Exceptional capture. So many tracks and curves. Love the deep black in this.
3 Mar 2009 8:24pm
3 Mar 2009 9:29pm
Nice touch to have the train car at the top of the frame. It would be an empty shot without it and having it lends an air of mystery.
3 Mar 2009 9:42pm
having seen this cliché(picture), I go off the rails(rave) completely
3 Mar 2009 10:20pm
Love everything about this image...right down to the quote. Superb!
3 Mar 2009 11:33pm
I love you!! This shot is just perfect. Compo, contrast, mood... In my collection vfxy.
4 Mar 2009 12:54am
I don't know you quite enough to proclaim my love, but I do love your work. This photo especially, as I grew up near a big rail yard. This reminds me of those sights and sounds.
4 Mar 2009 1:11am
@613photo: Thanks so much! It's nice to know this image was able to take you somewhere. I grew up close to tracks I never really saw, but I would hear the train whistle off in the distance at night, and to this day it's something that I still love to hear.
Great shot, really like the processing here too, the highlights and the tracks very cool.
4 Mar 2009 2:35am
Stunning work Sharon. The high contrasts and line are spectacular. Another fantastic creation.
4 Mar 2009 3:09am

4 Mar 2009 3:58am
A lesson in composition and use of black & white..! Brilliant..!
4 Mar 2009 4:18am
Oh I love me some tracks!! This is fantastic. Thank you for sharing.

4 Mar 2009 10:50am
Great strong contrast!
