  1. Wow, Elaine. I really like viewing this through the window. Such a pretty scene beyond and I like the creative way you've presented it.

  2. It's like a model setup, Elaine…which I love! I love model trains. 🙂

  4. Love the framing, feels like I'm there watching the train and everything.

  5. "People get ready / There's a train a-coming / You don't need no baggage / You just get on board / All you need is faith / To hear diesels humming" (Curtis Mayfield)I love you & your art, Elaine. What a brilliant composition! What a sexy photograph! Love it, love it, love it. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

  6. Love the movement felt through your compo, Elaine, so many things to look at here and the B&W is superb, smoothy cool. Great trip ! And great week-end to you*

  7. It looks as if the train is one of those tiny model ones. It's been years since I've seen the CN rail insignia. Very creative viewpoint!!!

  8. cool framing through the window. nice result.

  9. i like what's going on here.. 🙂 looks nice in b&w too.. well done..

  10. Sweet. I like the train and all the heavy equipment. But what I really love is how you shot this through some sort of tailing that's all blurry and mysterious and perfectly frames the subject while making everything more interesting.

  11. I get very nostalgic whenever I see that old CN logo. The summer after I graduated from high school, some friends and I took a car trip to a foreign country – Canada! I remember, right after we crossed the border in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, we came to a railroad crossing where a train was passing by. Boxcar after boxcar with that large CN logo went slipping past our windshield – each enforcing the fact we weren't in the US anymore. It seemed so exciting at the time!

  12. Excellent framing! Really well done.

So... What do ya think?
