    cool DOF effect. I like the tunnel in the background too! the tracks lead you right into the photo.

    Nice composition. Good depth of field. Nice exposure, with good range black to white. Nice detail at the juncture of the two tracks, and in the shadows.

    The tilt to the image is just off enough to be disturbing. Either more level or more tilted would enhance the image. I think more level might work better.

    I think the ground is uneven. The tunnel looks straight to me....

    yeah the ground was uneven...
    thanks for the comments.
    what do you guys think about focusing on the tunnel instead of the junction?

    With the DOF & perspective, it almost has a feeling of being a macro shot from a model railroad. Very interesting.

    It really is a great shot. I think if you focused on the tunnel instead of the junction you would lose that great shot. Blur in the foreground is distracting to the eye.

    I think your first instinct, to focus on your foreground interest was the way to go with this. Of course, when out on a shoot, trying both ways, and deciding later is always an option.
