Thanks.

The alternative to that entry would have been this:

(D200, 50mm 1.8 @ f/1.8, 1/1250 with handheld ND grad.)

After so many years, it still remains an iconic symbol.

Thanks again. It wasn't hard to choose aesthetically in the end when I reviewed photo hosting sites. That scene from Birkenau is taken very often by tourists, though perhaps not with the same depth of field I chose. The difficulty was choosing between the emotion of the images. Transportation hasn't always been used for good - people trafficking, smuggling to name some.

Posted my image! :D Was difficult to choose, but feel I went with the right one in the end. Here are three others I almost posted- hope you don't mind them being posted here!

Cheers.

LahLahSr: Great shot. When I first looked at your shot I said to myself "what is wrong with that bridge?"
It looks like it is twisting or swaying realy badly. :shock:
After taking a longer look I realized it is a trick of the light on the
underside of the bridge :D :D

love it!!

Nick

Thanks for the compliment, and no, I don't mind at all. I'll PM you a larger version.

Your entry has wonderful leading curves. The only issue I have with it is the noise at ISO 3200. Was the lighting that poor that you needed to push the ISO so far, or were you deliberately wanting to achieve a noisy image?

the lighting was terrible.. daniel devine suggested i re shoot it but i didnt want to.. and using a tripod and everything.. i actually dont mind the noise at all.. and i think its not bad at all for 3200 ISO..and personally i like the noise in the corners and that really the only noise i can see thats really noticeable.. and even that isnt bad.. does the noise bother you that much??

I don't actually have a problem with noise, and it can be used to good effect in cases. Of course there are instances where noise isn't going to be desirable. With your image I queried whether it was deliberate or not because I find the noise here adds more texture to the image and could have been artistic rather than down to the lighting.

quintendejonge your picture is amazing! hope you didnt put yourself in to much danger doing it!
There is something really nice about train tracks,
i think its the oldness of them, and how even though trains may have changed, the tracks havent much
