    The train was actually shot on a cold, rainy, bleak day. The colors were washed out horrible, hence the b&W

    That comment was in no way related to your photo. I was thinking of our FL and Aussie TPF members.

    This should be an interesting challenge. There are several members that see in black/white.

    And....a perfect 2019 to you all!

    Landscapes have not been "my thing" for about 45 years. As a teenager I regularly traveled around Germany, Belgium, France, Denmark and England to capture beautiful landscapes, picturesque villages etc. with my Nikon F and Nikkormat Ftn, but later on, being a professional photographer (specialized in model/fashion and product photography) I've never really found time to do anything in this specific direction. I think, it's really something I've to pick up again.

    Good timing for me. Was going to go into the seedy part of Detroit today for a project shoot. I was fired up for it but my brother backed out on me last minute. I was going to teach him how to manage the hood when street shooting. I think he was scared, which is OK but he doesn't hear me when I tell tell him, "most people are good" , it's the 5 % you have to watch out for. This will work in it's place. I am not a landscape guy

    Not quite just a landscape, but this photo is one of my favorites.

    I never got a chance to go look around with my camera, but on the way home I decided to try a 'farmscape' with the phone's camera. I used Snapseed to convert to black & white.
