    Here's another urban/rail image. A subject I've been working on the past coupla months. I was kind of inspired by Gursky/color field approach. This was with a 58mm lens to capture the horizontal impact of the building. I was wary of using an ultra wide lens because I think some of the impact of the building detail is lost (though I do like how the WA captured the sun's glint waning from right to left), my only other option would be to stitch several images from a longer lens together, which I might end up doing. Also I'm unsure about the cut off text

    I like the image, but not the cut-off text.

    Agree. I would go back with a slightly longer lens and leave off the text.

    It is a really great image.

    You might also try different variations in daylight as well as twilight. I don't know if the light ever hits it sideways at sunup or sundown, but that could be cool as well. Kind of a variations on a theme thing.

    An iPhone/iPad app called LunaSolCal can tell you about the sun azimuth and altitude for any given day or time, as well as all the sunrise sunset twilight info.

    Fresno, Ca. - early 1980's ( building long gone now ). This was right across the street from the railyards - so aptly named.

    thanks for the feedback, John. I first envisioned this composition with some sweet sunset cross light, unfortunately this rail line runs north/south at this section of the Hudson and that will never happen.

    Though I agree I think the text does more harm than good -- the eye is too easily drawn to it, rather than the repetition of the tracks and building...

    Austin, you have a great eye! The high line shot is one I would have pasted up because I wouldn't have seen the potential...
    I agree. The image has quite a tension to it. Its induction into the viewer of alternating high and low fields grounds it in a vocabulary which while not current, is almost magnetic.

    I would much prefer to see no text or the entire text, although I don't know how long it is since I haven't seen all of it.

    As presented, the image ended at the right edge of my browser window so I scrolled right expecting to see the rest of it.

    Other than that, great image.
