Opinions please, the project is landscape, there really aren't any guidelines for the project.
Well, this is really only scratching the surface in terms of landscape ideas. I don't think this is an effective photograph because 1) everybody shoots railroads when they start out. Railroads, cats, and flowers, it seems. I sure as hell did.
2) Little texture. One thing that makes b&w pictures pop is texture.
3) Using a leading line is good, but a diagonal leading line is better. Feels more dynamic. This line is really quite horizontal, which I don't find very interesting.
When you say "horizontal", you actually mean "vertical", right, White?
But all in all I feel what you offer in terms of critique is totally right, so what else is there to offer? What strikes me is that these rails are in a process of being removed, or so it seems, as there aren't even any more sleepers there that might have given some horizontal (and I mean it ) lines to the amount of vertical ones (side of bridge, main railway line, poles).
