    this train has been abandoned by the city in that no care or maintenance is performed at all and looks terrible. the snow really covered up a lot of blight and briefly restored it's beauty. shot with an inexpensive slr:

    Strong shot! Since the train is dormant... I see a lot of really nice forms coming out this one.

    Great shot. I like the angle you have shot the train, and the stark b & w contrast with few midtones

    Wow, high contrast, strong graphic appeal.....I really like it, Jon. Part of me wants to see it a little less contrasty, but....the other part is very satisfied that this is the best version. :wink:

    Great composition, too. Nice work! :D

    It's very good. I'll agree a *touch* less contrast would do it some good, unless it was very grainy.

    Nice. It almost looks like a stencil cut-out.
