You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico, Flagstaff, Arizona, . . . . Interesting choice, Animesh. Clearly overexposed, tilted, the horse's hoofs cut off. But not uninteresting. A good moment with the train passing the tied up horse. A scene from the Old West. Best, -Hugh

hello animesh da,
I like this composition very much. the horse, the old looking train and the sepia gives an overall old feel, which I like very much. Though I am not sure about the large overexposed part in the middle, looks somewhat distracting.

The horse's shadow in the dirt is my favourite part... I don't see why you missed his feet, though - that doesn't seem to make sense. By the way - I have that picture you sent hanging in my place now - many thanks!

the "old" feeling comes out very well,also the one of wide open space... but a bit of a pity about the cut hoofs, by so little:-) and the overexposed place in the middle? Maybe a crop just before the reflections? The left part of the picture is strong, I like the shadow and it certainly makes one want to see more of this mythical road...TFS

Man...I love trains. I have an obsession since sleeping in the town in which my mom grew up...coal mining, lots of trains. Interesting treatment here...the toning. Such an old west feeling, all you need is the steam from a steam locomotive.
Are you getting into medium format photography? I shoot with a C500, but have problems printing on my enlarger. I love medium format...I just saw Hasselblad in the note.
Anyhow, the high-key effect is exceeltn for the content.

Absolutely lovely, Animesh, you are using one of the most unique cameras, sad, they have stopped making them.
