Jolie perspective sur cette voix ferrée qui nous donne envie de savoir jusqu'où elle va.

Superb POV and perspective. The eye wanders endlessly along the railway lines disapearing in the distance. No unnecessary details in this desert landscape disturbs the view. Truly a great picture.
have a good time

An excellent shot with this endless perspective
I like the curvature of the lens turned into profit to make the rails from the bottom corners
have a nice day, best regards

Kia ora Achim,
Great photo to illustrate endless distance. The sleepers in the foreground are a good starting point and the eye is drawing along the track to the mountains in the dustance. Chhers, Neil

eine tolle Idee und eine ausgezeichnete Realisation. Die Unendlichkeit des Raumes kommt sehr gut heraus. Die Komposition und die Perspektive sind hervorragend. Kompliment!

Bonsoir, cher Achim,
Excellente prise de vue. L'effet de perspective est stupéfiant de réalisme.
Bravo sur toute la ligne (de chemin de fer, bien entendu) !
Une image emplie de talent.

Your low POV creates an increadible picture! Great choice to take the shot just at the edge of the worn wooden planks; it helps to enhance the effect of your POV. The desolate landscape is very beautiful too in its own right.

Hello Achim - One really gets the feel of one of the world's wild and barren places from this strong composition. The curve of the line, which looks so elegant, draws us into the shot and to, what seems to be, the unending landscape. You have made excellent use of the few man-made features to help describe the location. Fascinating! Warm regards rosemary

I have been to this amazing place in 2007.
I like the low point of view of the picture. Very well done.

I agree with the title of your photo, this is really an endless railway, which you have caught in a very powerful image graphically, with an impressive perspective and a great depth.
The strong contrast between the rails, the landscape of the salty lake and the distant mountains in background, increases the quality of your composition.
A beautiful work, my friend.
snunney (79459) 2012-11-27 0:55
The low viewpoint emphasises the exceptional deep perspective. I like the subtle blend of tones and the very good clarity.

unusual composition, place and theme. Fine symmetrical composition of railway track. Nice perspective. Well photowork and note.
Have a nice day.

danos (83031) 2012-11-27 4:18
nice the view as the presentation of the endless railway that creates perspective in the scene.
I like the light and the colour manageent of the image.
Have a good afternoon,Dnaos
jhm (135042) 2012-11-27 4:29
You chose the most classic angle but for my always the most beautiful.
What a depth image with the two point of the rails nice together on end of the rails.
A wonderful perspective and lovely landscape picture.
Excellent done with high quality taken.
A nice composition, also very nice colors and sharpness. TFS.
pierrefonds (54880) 2012-11-27 4:31
The length of the rail track is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the rail track, of the sdalty lake and of the mountains. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

ciakgiak (30405) 2012-11-27 7:46
this is absolutely great, a superb POV to obtain an impressive image! Well done.
saxo042 (36902) 2012-11-27 8:39
A great idea for a picture! You have cropped the picture perfectly and you avoided to make it too symmetrical, the tracks converge a bit to the side. A very fine picture!
siolaw (38050) 2012-11-27 8:45
Hi Achim, after long time!
You have an excellent eye catching compo and view here! With perfect clarity and sharpness.
Strong depth and huge perspective!
CLODO (28924) 2012-11-27 9:26
very good framing and amazing railways track going to the infinite in the desert, the symetry being broken by the mountains at the horizon.
boa (5618) 2012-11-27 13:12
an excellent title for this shot, it looks like you say-endless :)
It must have been a interesting experience to visit this region, a desolate desert. I like this lov Pov, very sharp and good colors, well done!
have a nice evening.
holmertz (36989) 2012-11-28 5:06
This really looks endless. There is an overwhelming monotony and a grandeur of the scenery that makes me feel small and humble. You placed the railway tracks well from the corners for a maximum balance and depth of the composition.
Cricri (101149) 2012-11-28 11:27
Hi Achim, contente de vous revoir
Super bon cadrage et une excellente perspective des rails qui s'enfonce vers l'infini, un paysage extraordinaire et pas des plus chaud!!
Angshu (54689) 2012-11-29 2:45
Amazing picture! The endless train tracks running through a basin of salt pans is an aamzing view of desolation & coldness.
mkamionka (29169) 2012-11-29 8:47
very impressive composition. Nice combination of the element of civilization set in a vast world of wild nature.
Great geometry with the rails so nicely leading the eye to the infinity. Unearthly landscape.
wolf38 (30276) 2012-11-29 8:51
Hallo Achim. Die Gleise scheinen ins Endlose zu führen. Solche Szenen finden wir im klassichen Kinofilm. Es ist der Stoff für Erzählungen. Titel, Photo und Text passengut zusammen. Insgesamt ein subtiles Photo.
anokutan (15097) 2012-11-29 12:56
Your low POV creates an increadible picture.Great choice to take the shot just at the edge of the worn wooden planks.The desolate landscape is very beautiful too in its own right.

The railway seems endless! I like the way it seems to lead us to the unknow, specially with such a landscape! Good low pov, light and colours!
jemaflor (80586) 2012-12-02 8:59
Great depth effect, well taken, impressive wilderness landscape, good light management.

molto bella questa prospettiva con la vecchia linea ferrata che attreaversa il lago dividendo in due la scena.
Colori naturali che insieme alla perfetta qualità valorizzano la foto,
lucasgalodoido (21051) 2013-10-29 15:47
