Stunning image very strong in my eyes another good take on the theme.
Cheers Adam....mono was the only option thanks to the great british weather...I think you got the symmetry pretty much spot on. Solid start to the challenge and works very we'll in mono.
It looks pretty good to me, leaves me wondering what's just around the corner...
Thanks AndreaYes, me too! The symmetry works well for this theme, the b&w suits the subject matter, and the bend in the distance is a great focal point.
Hi Jeff , thanks for stopping by....a & s for Kinky...you have no idea......Some people just see 'kink'y in everything! ;-) good luck this year
Cheer's Dean...I did wonder about cloning the signal & path out but as my cloning skills are a work in ( slow )progress I thought best to leave well aloneHey Lynne
That looks good to me, I'd be tempted to clone out the signal with some trees and maybe the RH path as my eyes go down the track then get pulled by them, other than that looks plenty level enough, liking the B&W and again the shiny track curving in the distance
Thanks Craig....cloning is on my list of things to perfect this yearAgree with the Dark Night here the signal pulls my attention other than that think its great like the b&w conversion
I'll let you know in a few weeks.............being a stalker isn't a good thing, is it...............................
I think the symmetry is pretty much spot on too, I do find the signal does draw my eye,
Thanks Sharon...look forward to seeing some bike shots from you this yearHi Lynne yes I like this and I am another one who wants to know what lies round the corner hope as the weeks pan out I will be more inspirational and hopefully will get to slip a bike in somewhere along the "line"
I Just use the 'Spot removal tool' in Lightroom for bits like that, would clone them out with 2 small clicks.....

Wow, lots of B&Ws this week...not from me though
Composition and symmetry look bang on
I did wonder about the signal and the white thing opposite, but fell it adds context.
Crit, well not keen on the stones on the sleepers

Cheers Dean...really must look at getting lightroom but then I'd struggle to learn it & I've all on with pse10...is lightroom easier ?Well done You
Thanks MichaelLovely pic Lynne, b+w works a treat, very pleasing composition.
Hi Lynne, I like it, then I would say that as you have noticed,
I too am awful at cloning things out so would have left it in myself
my only crit are the trees in the BG seem a little odd?
Congratuations on your pic of the week too
Odd - Great shot. I love the texture and tones on this. Congratulations on it being the Staff Photo of the Week
Linear/Line - Nice converging lines. I like this shot. The addition of the signal adds to the image
Thanks DRI'm so impressed with the PP on ODD, I really wouldn't know where to start.
More B&W rails
Cheers Jason....yup , it's a working line but thankfully only 1 train & when I was on this part of the line said train was in the station about 5 miles away.... I knew this as I'd seen it go byGood stuff Lynn. I like the signal and the way the signal arm and curve both veer off left in the same direction....also like the inclusion of the fence lines to the right a lot......Cant fault it at all.....
Only crit would be with regards to standing on a working railway line I presume....naughty naughty
Thanks Paul...the things we do for photography, as above it was quite safe though not entirely sure the people who run the line would agreeGood shot I like it....... I think your very brave(?) standing in the middle of a train track though
Cheers M....Nice, bold (almost) converging lines which works very well in your b/w PP. Agree with DK about cloning out the signal.
Good luck for this year's challenge!
Saturdays just wouldn't be the same would they...Hi Lynne
so we're both here again lol
good strong image, dont mind the signal on left but the path? on right keeps drawing my eye.
seems to me you try to sort one line out and it just upsets another lol....guess i need to keep practising
Yeah , winter midday is not ideal for this type of shot so mono is my savoirLove the contrast and the composition. B&w works well for this type of shot I think. I've done similar in colour and particularly at this time of year they end up looking a bit drab!
Thanks Richard...it is a great little railway line , hopefully I'll get some shots of the steam train in action during better weatherLiking this, leading lines to see what is round the corner, makes me wonder...
The stop signal just adds that little extra too, loverly spot well photographed
Hi Lynne, great start for you, a Pic of the week to boot as well. yay!
Loving teh lines too, you know me, I'll clone anything out..... but I see no reason to take the poor signal away.
CheersGreat start to your 52.
Odd - cannot poss comment as you are now a star
Line - that's more like it Dark, resort to mono, complain about the kinks imposed by Network Rail (altho it might be one of those enthusiasts lines). Nice tho and on theme
Thanks SimonTwo strong images!
The first one is my favourite, I'm not too sure what it is but it's well lit - good interpretation of the theme.
Good choice on the mono conversion on the second, as DK has already mentioned I would probably toy with the idea of cloning the signal but good shot nonetheless.
What a great start, I look forward to seeing your future entries
Cheers Judi , cloning is something I WILL learn this yearI quite like the signal, but the bit in front of it railing? and the bit of concrete opposite spoil it a bit otherwise great.
Very nice, I would leave the signal where it is as I think it adds context. Plus I like as little PP as possible. Is that an actual live in use railway???
Not sure what's wrong with the symmetry, it looks fine to me. Lots of lines - no guessing at the link, nice b&w and the bend at the top sets it off nicely.
Editing was mentioned above and I'd leave the signal in but possibly remove the white pipe thing at the halfway point and the white sign thing at the bend but it's nitpicking really.
