    This was taken behind the protective perspex sheet from the footbridge overlooking the train at Stratford Central Line London Westfield. What's your thoughts?

    Really interesting viewpoint.

    Personally I'd crop the top to the end of the train, or even a bit lower so that the train is still central, and scrap the title - let people work it out for themselves, and think "Oooh, that's clever".

    Yes, lovely night shot.
    I'm just amazed that the train can be boarded from both sides. I can't remember that from when I was in London!

    Pretty much my take exactly, lose the element of reality and the image becomes an intriguing and very strong abstract.

    Nice one, definitely :cool::cool:and could end up :cool::cool::cool:...

    Despite my post in the other thread I certainly 'get' this one.

    Agree with above. A bit of a crop at the top and it's super.

    Nice concept and a railway shot with a difference.

    Thanks, though I should have sought your opinions earlier. This was my Night Life entry.

    Doesn't really do it for me. I'd have gone a little longer on the lens to make it less angular, but even then, the dark triangles really dominate. The colours and lighting don't work for me either. Interesting viewpoint though.

    I agree Adrian

    Crop before the bend in the train

    Dear Adrian,

    Yet another fervent agreement with your analysis.

    Great picture (after cropping) and a bad, cutesy title.

    Hey Peter. Just a thought. Maybe you should have made it a lego set up with a toy train??

    Excuse the cynicism - but it's early in the morning.

    Best of luck for this month's abstract.

    Thanks Roger, cheque is in the post!

    I ought to pay more attention to my remark about titles myself, actually...

    For the purpose of giving the thread a title - it was the first thing that popped into my head. Lol!

    Cheers for the feedback and will experiment with your suggestions.
