I have always been facinated by railways and tracks of any kind all over the world (even tough I work for an airline).
Shown here is London's DLR railway connecting the city with my favorite airport in London that is London city airport. Or in this case, if I remember right, we where heading out to the charming village of Greenwich, so close to the city yet so far, as it has a distinctive small town mood to it. Greenwich of course is best known for its 0 meridian.

J'aime beaucoup l'effet donné à cette composition. Cela donne un entrelacs de voies ferrées créant ainsi des formes géométriques très originales. Les rails luisent joliment. L'ensemble est fort bien conçu.
J'apprécie comme il se doit.

Nice shown the curves on the tracks, Daniel.
DOF was super, and the complex looks as a conjunction place for some diff. lines.
"Busy" picture collected well,

I've a son that works to the Belgium railway, is also a great train fan.
You chose a specially angle, through the curve of the rails.
I can real enjoy through your excellent angle this gives depth and perspective.
Composition and presentation are superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

I congratulate you for making the DLR a subject for TE and also capturing it so effectively in this image. Love the enticing lines and real sense of perspective with the deliciously elegant curves and undulations here in this original and compelling shot. Bravo!
Enjoy your Sunday - regards Brian.

Hello Daniel - I like your Peak Tramway shot but this one is even better! I love the way you have captured the snaking lines of track and the excellent use of DOF. You have taken quite an uninspiring subject (for me at any rate) and elevated it into something rather special. Excellent! Warm regards rosemary

On dirait de rails de grand huit.

Fascinating lines and curves in this shot, even though an everyday shot, something so few of us would take the time to stop and admire, so really nicely done. I love the train on the right looks as if it is about to disappear underground too!
All the best

A classic view of railway-tracks. They bend nicely and give very good depth to the picture. Watching this, and the confusion of signs and poles and fences I can easily understand the fascination you feel. You have that in common with a lot of other people.

An interesting note and a very fine photograph! Like yourself, I love railways and locomotives.
You have managed to make what would otherwise have been a rather dull scene into a very imposing composition, the strong sweeping curves of the tracks really pulling the viewer into the picture. The red train in the distance on the right really "holds" the composition together perfectly.
Lovely vibrant colours, fabulously strong perspective and excellent details and clarity.

besides the interesting POV, your photo is a great proof that railway connections in UK are neither sustainable nor comfortable: just have a sharp look how the tracks are swaying to and fro - a poor performance of the construction team...

Une prise de vue très interessante avec un bel effet graphique avec un bon choix de profondeur de champ. J'aime bien comment la partie supérieure droite fait presque penser à un montage avec l'ajout d'une autre vue.

Your pov is excellent. I like the sweeping curves of the rail track. The train in the top right corner is in the perfect position, and I think this is what really makes this shot work so well. Very well done.

Who knew train tracks could be so interesting? Apparently you did, because this is a really great shot! The vertical composition is certainly the best option as it takes the eye from the bottom to the top of the frame, a little journey that the viewer gets to experience. :) The curve of the tracks obviously holds the most appeal, but the depth of field also makes this an even stronger photo as the details slightly fade off in the distance. This really helps the sense of perspective as well with this compressed focal range. Impressive picture, well observed and put together. Have a great day.
All the best,
