Well...something different today...Tram was one of the main public transportation medium in Athens till early 60's...That period they decide that it was not practical and they stop it...Forty years later they decide that is good...so here it is again...Ofcourse now it change its face to an ultra modern one, althought still in question if it is practical and effective...But at least is beutiful and almost completely silent:-D
This shot was taken in a tram stop near home, late in the afternoon with the setting sun lighting the scene with warm light. I did like the view as it comes out behind the tram stop construction...

A good idea for a graphic shot, and the vertical lines on the right work the compo. Though it's not too sharp at a point where it should be, the lettering on the front of the train is a bit blurred.

Very nice pic. It looks like the tram is shy and afraid to come out completely. Happy to see that Pininfarina
design made is way in the public transportation of Athen. :-)

Les progrès en matière de transport sont spectaculaires ! J'aime ces couleurs et ses formes géométriques du train et du décor du métropolitain. George, vous avez vu le regard que porte le machiniste de votre côté, je me méfierai à votre place ! ;-))
Une très belle photo nous permettant de visiter le monde depuis notre domicile.
Merci du partage.

Strong urban one, with greatly composed shiny elements, George! Love how you succeeded to capture even the driver behind, with his sunglasses..;-)) Wonderful curving shapes combined with horizontal and vertical lines. Excellent capture!

This is good George,
It looks to me a modern art photo, and that a compliment, the lines are beautiful even ass the colours. It looks a little a 3 D photo, very good job

Hi George, a new tram in Athens, a very new and modern execution, excellent composition, everything sharp and clear, well seen.

Good lines, reflections and differences in the greys. Very modern picture for a neo modern tram, good composition.
T U for informations in note.

Very interesting shot I think. Good use of graphical elements and details. The main subject is displayed well, and a good choice to have only the front in the fine balance to the wall at right. Also the colours are well adjusted and essential for the impression.

Gosto muito das suas series fotograficas, eu tambem me interesso muito por transportes. Gosto desse detalhe mostrando as linhas limpas e aerodinamicas do moderno meio de transporte. E uma imagem simples mas muito precisa. Parabens George.

New style, George. No door, no windows, no graffiti ;)
But a very interesting graphic composition !
Another vision of Greece, modern aspects, transportation of the future.

I like the modern of the tram, George. I also like the slight blur which means that the tram was still in motion. Excellent POV. I like the way the driver looks at you with his heavy sun glasses. Well done.

Yes, an ultra-modern looking tram, George (with quite a "cool" driver inside, it seems). Together with the lines from the platform construction at the right, and the urban buildings behind, the composition adds up to a futuristic and pleasing total. Good shot.

Very good shot, George, showing us shapes, lines and textures that we can see and feel very well. Good idea, good work!
