Here is the view of the famous and iconic for Chicago's cityscape CTA trains(Chicago Transit Authority).
Originally the photo was in color,but somehow I find it much better in B&W color scheme.I cut also the image so that it has more panoramic look.
I hope you like it.

I really like the image and find excellent choice of B & W, I enjoyed it a little bit to make a small WS correcting lens distortion and adding a bit of contrast...I hope it does not bother you, excellent sharp and cutting..train is one of my favourite theme...
have a good day...

Krzysztof, you are with the B&W too, as Noel, and I like it! Pics in B&W have more character,and the skill of the photograph is more evident, it's my modest opinion....I like the detail of this station in Chicago, so typical there. Good memories...
Have a good day!

Ciekawe ujecie tej jednoski kolejowej ktorej zachowujesz wspaniala perspektywe. Doskonaly wybor koloru B&W szczegolnie dla tego kadru. Wydaje mi sie tak wykonane zdjecie ma specyficzna atmosferke, ktora tez przyciaga uwage. Widzac czarno biale zdjecie z reguly przypominaja mi dziecinne lata. Podoba mi sie to
zdjecie w takim wykonaniu. Bardzo dobra praca. Dzieki.

Hi Krzysztof, An intriguing subject those old running subway train.
Why on B&W? but i muat say this enhanced the outlines on buildings and the moving train.
Fine shot, good shutter used.

B&W is a perfect choice and again sets a wonderful mood here. Its strange, as I would never have really considered B&W for urban scenes like this, but you have shown me it works very well. I also love how the train looks like it has a pointed roof (or my initial though, the train is wearing a hat!). Great sign to the right too.

Bardzo dobrym pomysłem była tu konwersja zdjęcia do B&W.
Przydaje to obrazowi siły. Zawsze jak myślę o Chicago przychodzą mi na myśl właśnie te kolejki.
Bardzo dobra jakość fotografii.

Very nice A&M capture with great composition and depth.Very good architectural details and lightning management.

Excellent B & W conversion. I like very much the slight diagonal arrrangement. Very clean, sharp photo taken from perfect viewpoint allowing tee also part of parallel rails and the boards on the oposite side of the train. The whole ist taken in very good liht.

il bianco e nero rende l'immagine senza tempo e la definizione la valorizza molto.
Buono il taglio con i grattacieli a fare da cornice,

Uwielbiam czarno-biały wybór. Linie kolejowe i okna dialogowe, stworzył piękną kombinację.
emka (67229) 2012-09-05 23:57
podoba mi sie ta wersja czarno-biała i format. Zdjecie ma troche staroswiecki urok. Fajna kolejka i stacja.

A fine shot of the train. A picture that works well in your choice of B&W. I`ve seen the workshop that has been made for this shot, but I think when it comes to contrast, I like this version better. The only thing is that in the WS the glimpse of a roof in the left part has disappeared, and that`s a good thing. I love the surrounding architecture. I have to travel back there sometime..Great work:) TFS.
Best regards, Erling

When, as in this image, the B & W is located at the "top".
The train from the old lines and a "Cult" films that featured large cities and movimentopendolare with public services.
Handwriting and diagonal.
Environment and atmosphere.
serp2000 (35056) 2012-09-13 10:06
Well done. It looks like a document photo. Good b&w version, perfect sharpness. Your photo reminds me a numerous American movies. Excellent register! TFS!

Black and white definitely gives it the kind of gritty, urban feel a train like the El should have, Krzysztof. I like how you've framed this, with the train stretching back out of frame and the buildings paralleling it along the way, creating a sense of movement despite the train being stopped. Including the signs at left was a great choice too, offsetting the main subject nicely.

With my recent run of pictures from NYC, I think it's clear that I've been in a "big city" mood for the last week or so. It's no wonder this one caught my attention, I love the gritty kind of urban scene this portrays...especially with the black & white scheme. The point of view is excellent, showing the train surrounded by buildings, it really has a great sense of placement. The angle chosen here shows a lot of good detail and features of the train lines, particularly showing the railway station sign. I bet this would have a great antique look and nostalgic feel if it were converted to a Sepia tone. Very nice shot!
Have a great day.
