What a lovely looking image of days gone by I like the tree branches on the top that acts as a frame, the diagonal composition of the track gives the image depth and a lead-in to the main part of the image which of course in the train, I would have a go at converting this to a dark sepia of just a b/w image because of the type of image that it is, going back in time so to speak it could change the whole impact of the image giving it much more of a nostalgic feel to it, but thats just a thought on my part!

Well composed. An image that could have been taken many years ago. I like the framing by the trees and the way the smoke curves back down the track.

It will probably be some time before I see light as captivating as this photographer discovered. The greens are handled with an eye to keeping the scene natural-looking, and of course the train is cleverly placed at mid-photo and on a diagonal that will bring him close to the photographer as it passes.

Beautiful, in a very Lovejoy sort of a way. Why we English love England...

I'd be tempted to do two things: crop a little at the right and bottom, so the train is less central, and clone out the brown (plastic?) pipe carrying a cable under the track, and the bits and bobs associated with it.

Completing the illusion that we still have trains with grace and efficiency, and an interest in passengers... (Sorry. That's unnecessary, but heartfelt.)

I agree with you John, regarding editing out the S&T trunking to give it better authenticity, I noticed it just after I uploaded it. And yes a slight crop would bring it to the intersection for the golden ratio I use on Lightroom. Not sure why I didn't in this case.

A wonderfully evocative shot. The viewpoint works very well and I like the way the eye is drawn down the line of the hedge on the left hand side of the image.
