Hi.. yes the sepia works well on this image. Try also really bringing out the contrast in the clouds in your software as I think that will up the impact further. This would work very well as a really contrasty lith print effect too.

Whatever motivated you to stand where you did. We have to jetwash enough bodyparts off train underframes from suicides without adding photographers to the list. Also that that third rail carries 750 volts dc. You will die if you touch that.

Great image...I'd try and give it more black levels, might find it gains a bit more oomph...

The toning works very well, especially as the subject is bold with good contrast and strong features.

The only thing missing from this shot is the "damsel in distress" and the "wicked uncle".

Excellent!

A lovely shot and the sepia tone works well, My only ptroblem is that there is something missing that will break the pattern. The lines lead your eye along but there is nothing to rest on. Just a thought.

Like the composition and toning. Pity the shot is dead symmetrical, just my opinion though. Dave.

Smashing shot with great lead in lines. Very moody and atmospheric which the sepia treatment adds to. Very well done and congrats on the well deserved RC award.

Sepia works well, I also think that the sky detail could have a little more impact, but the composition is very strong, really leads you into the pic.
