    Sublime interpretation.

    Breathtaking drama with more than a hint of menace.

    Very original.

    Real. Excellent.

    V1: Imaginative and unique. A strong and stimulating distillation of the primary elements of the railway environment.

    V2: The coloured pop-out is attracting but distracting. The "capture" inherently has merit as an incidental, glimpsed moment of random happening with a strong sense of place.

    Sentimentality in V4, but with beautiful colouring and a satisfying, sympathetic arrangement of the leaning figure, her pony tail and the soft dynamic background.

    V3: Contrasts. Superb handling of light, shade, shape and directional thrusts. Heavy, static massing and fluid action. Beautifully delicate steam trail. Tangible "echoes".

    Technical accomplishment and legitimate stretching of boundaries.

    Excellent composition, disposition of simple strong shapes, subtle perspective and breathaking tone, colour and lighting. Hence, beautifully airy and atmospheric setting off the slightly melancholic subject. Bit of luck with the cyclist, but good reaction, topping it all off with balanced, dynamic triangulation of elements and details.

    Disagree with the previous comments about the half hidden pillar. To see it all through the gap would have been too obvious, too literal. Too static. Offset, it adds the "offbeat", a natural, chance view, more tension, more life. Just as the tilt off the vertical does too. Beautiful "counterpoint" of the bridge catenary cables and the ragged ends of the timbers.

    Excellent photograph.

    Quite right!

    Protocol, hysteria, fences, cctv and box-ticking officials, etc, be damned!

    Good shot.

    Strongly disagree with previous comments.

    V2 is by far the better. The brick wall and bridge frame the vanishing point sharply, enhancing the effect you are trying to achieve. The brickwork also provides counterbalance in texture and colour, and, architectural and historical railway environment interest.

    Also, the standing figure and salient secondary features like the steaming whistle are more strongly arranged and better balanced. Check for yourself with a Golden Section.

    The original is classically an excellent picture. Trust your "taking" instincts.

    Marvellous composition, shapes, blacks, tones and tangible grit.
