    I was trying to convey an empty, harsh and desolate feel in picture. Does this come across in the picture, and is there anything that needs to be changed?
    All comments are appreaciated.
    Thanks

    Great. I am looking for the fine artist that did work similar to this. I can't remember his name but he did a series of stark images of piles of debree that conveyed a feeling of bleekness while nature is being run over by progress. Your tracks have a similar feel. I can't tell from my monitor but it might just be a tad too contrasty.

    Antonin Kratochvil from VII has done a lot of photojournalism on environmental destruction, and I sort of got the inspiration for this piece off of a picture he took in iraq.

    I think it expresses stronger if you cut some white sky.

    Agreed - just a little too much at the top, but still very well seen. It looks a bit contrasty......I like strong contrast, but would be interested in viewing this one down a grade or so. Not much, just maybe to unblock the shadows in your horizontal lines.

    Good one, Darin. :)
