Narrow gauge railroads are few and far between. I thought about putting this up in B&W but ultimately felt that color was a better choice.
just 5 stars

All the subtleties of rust...glad you chose color. This is a fabulous one-of-a-kind macro. Sublime!

@Dulcie: Thank you.
joli detail !

Some very interesting railway images, this one is full of colour and texture and shows that rust can make a super photograph

@P J W Miller: Thanks.
Excellent rendu des matières Jack. La rouille et le bois sont très bien mis en lumière et la compo bien également

Très beaux détails! Superbe image!
28 Nov 2009 8:17am

@Lyl and Roll: Merci.
The sunset of the rust - superb*

I agree to your choice. Nice expression of rusty colors.
28 Nov 2009 12:53pm
@Hiro: Thank you.
Textures, colours and light are superb !
28 Nov 2009 1:32pm
A great photograph and which I like much, bravo!
28 Nov 2009 2:04pm
Wow, excellent detail and composition.
28 Nov 2009 2:30pm
@Bigezbear: Thank you.
A strange, yet attractive close-up, then again I love trains lol
28 Nov 2009 2:34pm
I like this close up of the railroad with the heavy rust. B&W would be a very different image. I like this one in color to get the full effect of the rust. Nice one.
28 Nov 2009 2:53pm
@Slackwater - don: Thanks, Don.
Great shot Jack....love the textures that appear.....and I had to look up, and learn "what's a narrow gauge railway?" !!!!
28 Nov 2009 2:54pm
@Susan: Thanks, Susan.
great composition and texture!
28 Nov 2009 3:34pm
@dabbler: Thank you.
I think it was a good choice! The sun in the iron and wood gives strength to the textures and full of color and strength. A spectacular setting. Greetings Adela

Very nice detail!
28 Nov 2009 4:21pm
@Foto-aksent: Thank you.
Très joli cette matière et ces détails
28 Nov 2009 5:00pm
Super clarity, sharpness, golden rusty colors ... Love this closeup, Jack ! That is what every closeup has to look like ... I hate blurry closeups :)) Have a great weekend :))
28 Nov 2009 5:08pm
@MARIANA: Some people like the woo-woo effect. The only way blurry close-ups work for me is when I am creating a selective focus where I only want part of the image to be tack sharp. But something damn well better be sharp!!

@Self-Indulgence: Thank you.
Oh yes...the gorgeous rich rust colour is stunning. A lovely clear close up shot..I love it when I see a shot on aminus which I would never have thought of myself ..and this is one of them.. just excellent.

@MrsAmber: Being out there all day, Kate, tends to force a little creativity, if only to relieve the boredom.
Very rich in color - good choice for this shot IMO.
Rust is fascinating and you captured this rusty rail so well. I wouldn't want to be the one to try removing those nuts. *****
28 Nov 2009 5:26pm
@Judy: Thanks. In B&W, it's kind of blah.
Fantastico detalles y componentes
28 Nov 2009 5:33pm
Nice details !
28 Nov 2009 5:57pm
@Loner: Thank you.
nice job in bringing out beauty in the ordinary, the color contrast between the rust the. wood and stones is very interesting
28 Nov 2009 6:01pm
@BJ: Thank you.
Yup, your double processing really lifts the colour and textures!
28 Nov 2009 6:29pm
Love the colors. Glad that you didn't do it in b&w.
28 Nov 2009 7:13pm
@Marion: Like I mentioned in an earlier response, it was blah in monochrome.
wonderful textures in this shot. I can see why you might hesitate regarding b&w or color...it would make a fantastic b&w also, but I like your final decision, I think the colors (particularly the rust) add a very nice element to this image :)
28 Nov 2009 7:32pm
@bekkah: Thank you. I love B&W, but some things just seem better in color.
WOW!! Fantastic capture. I'm glad you kept this in colour. Great textures and tones. I love the llighting.
28 Nov 2009 9:13pm
nice compo and lighting...
28 Nov 2009 11:24pm
Cool textures and detail!
28 Nov 2009 11:42pm
Great composition, color and detail.

@Bill Laing: Thanks, Bill. Are you back from the Coast? If so, how was it?
Excellent close-up! I adore rust!
29 Nov 2009 1:54am
@Tracy: Thanks, Tracy.
A beautiful piece of history.
29 Nov 2009 1:55am
@Steve Rice: Thanks, Steve.
color looks great to me, maybe b&w too?
29 Nov 2009 4:22am
Amazing vividness of the rust of time on a steel that has been support tonnes of load for years.
29 Nov 2009 5:01am
Rust can be so beautiful at times! Great presentation!
29 Nov 2009 6:09am
Amaizing colors and textures.
29 Nov 2009 4:47pm
Nice and sharp image...
29 Nov 2009 8:44pm
Very beautiful detail
30 Nov 2009 6:05am
it would certainly work well in either -- but i love these rich orange rust tones!
30 Nov 2009 4:59pm
@dj.tigersprout: I tried the B&W and it looked blah to me.
Excellent framing... details, light and textures are superb.
30 Nov 2009 9:18pm
Love all that rust - would have gotten lost in b&w. Color is the perfect choice.
1 Dec 2009 6:28am
@Toni: I tried a monochrome conversion to see what it would look like. It didn't cut it.
I do like the color. Really brings out the texture.

@jeff (aka dogilicious): Thanks.
