3rd in series is just straight down the disused tram tracks.
In PS pulled the curve for detail in shadows a touch cropped and added boarder.

I like the way you used the tracks to pull us right into the frame for this, and around the corner. The use of black & white for this desolate area is very good too, matching the subject very well. Good work!

Hi! Good shot with tram line, that`s good in my opinion that you choose B&W. This landscape looks like after bombing, some more information in note about this place will be nice. Regards! Andrzej

The tram lines reminds me of the tracks at the entrance of Auschwitz, which of course is fitting. This photo strongly brings the savage tragedy into perspective- and is timeless in B&W. Out of respect to the victims I can't give it a smiley face, but you have done a magnificent job.

I think you have a good eye to capture this scene. Might be a place for which nobody gives much attention. But you revealed the richness of this abandoned area.
Simple life is in general more intersting than great events.

Hi Richard, I'm back again on your gallery, and I find that this is a great shot.
It caould have been in a Capa's book, taken when Nazi soldiers quit this place leaving only ruins and ashes.
I really appreciate the study and the search for the right view in your work.
