Now this is how you can transform the most mundane, and even unattractive, types of subjects into something of intrigue and beauty. The firey red sunset sets the scene ablaze, and the power lines in silhouette have since become a fascinating element in contrast. And I really like the highlighted yellow streak cutting across the sky for added effect. Great capture of a short time frame to work under. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

I was attracted to the warm colors and tones contained within this frame. I always struggle with indoor pictures, so it's with great pleasure when I can see ones which are handled and presented so well, such as this. :) Without your notes, I would have never guessed this to be the rail station, it looks more like a high end restaurant/club from this composition. Beautiful architecture and details throughout, a nice place to wait for the next train out, yeah? :) Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

I can see why you stopped for this one. It is as if the heavens had opened and let the light cascade out. You have an interesting FG with the boulders and the tree placed to one side. Incredible light and photography.
Kind Regards, Ann

The silhouetted balcony and the red and yellows of the sunset have made a powerful image. A strong vertical presentation and a clever idea. A very enjoyable image - like it a lot.
Kind Regards, Ann

You started on your compositional prowess long ago, this is a wonderful converging perspective with smart use of the pink theater as a focal point that draws us far into the distance. I love how the people are dotted across, and deep into the frame, leading us down the dirt road. And to no ones surprise, they're all men. :) As we often comment on how much things might have remained the same over the many decades since, it sounds like progression has at least grasped this particular road. Quite an intersting read, as always with your notes...knowing the importance of the cinemas placement and stature in the city. Another fine documention in time. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

Hi Will,it's sad to know that this beautiful and natural corner is now just a concrete carpet as i can see in the useful WS by John....this pic remains a great memory to the past,very well scannered,the detail and the colors are good...an example of the price of progress.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Well, I see some pink in there...so I'm going to consider this as keeping up on the "red" theme. :)
You know, it must be calibration and computer...I've taken a close look at this picture here and on the beta site while at home this morning, and there wasn't a negligible difference. However, now that I'm at work (shhhhh) and seeing it with a different monitor, it has lost some vibrancy of color and a touch of sharpness.
Bottom line though, it's a sweet shot full of color and airy atmosphere...easy to understand the attraction, especially as a photog! :) I'd never known anything about this place before now, and thanks to the TE experience and your pictures...I'll definitely put it on the list to visit.
A fun title to associate with the visual and logistics, it's amazing the things we miss which are so very close to where we are at times. More reason to go back, right? :) A pastel rainbow of enticement and daily life, cool shot! Have a great day. Take it easy.
Cheers from Phx,

the lovely contrasty light works ever so well,lighting up the Pine whilst the distant mountains are in deep shadow,an almost 3D effect with the saturated colours giving lots of impact to the scene.
Best regards Les.

Salut Nicolas,l'hiver est arrive' tres tot,comme je peu voir depuis cette image et tes autres sur facebook,dan cette image il y a deja beaucoup de neige,excellent choix du moment,la lumiere rechauffe les couleurs des arbres pour contraster au mieux le blanc et le bleu si bien exposees! Belle soiree' et merci,Luciano

such a well composed photograph with little triangles every where plus many interesting characters on view.
The poles along the roughly made road lead right up to the Cinema giving a good perspective to the shot.
With fine details and excellent note it`s another treat.
Warm regards Les.

Hi John,absolutely beautiful!! The choice of the moment is great,the warm and low lights of this late autumn sunset is perfect to give a special effect to the colors,a great composition with not only this alone tree,but a beautiful scenery too in the dark background.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
