    Difficult. It was torture until I saw the fine entries in this Challenge. Full marks to alberto for the topic.

    Congratulations Jade. I can appreciate how difficult this challenge has been for you but am glad to see some crack in your sunset anima (or animus). Just to be nice I will not choose 'Milky water' as the next challenge LOL

    Thank you all for your votes and comments. I feel fortunate to have the votes tally up favourably especially as I am not completely satisfied with the image here.

    Wow, thank you, Billy. I really do not feel I am deserving of #1 but I respect your right to your opinion!!! But a sunset, oh no!?!! No really, I don't do sunsets! This is a twilight shot!

    After a tough decision among 3-4 entries, this one is finally my #1 :-)
Reasons? well, the theme is beautifully accomplished here, the lighting is superb, a non-conventional sunset (mmmm... Jade, maybe? ;-)
...and, last but not least, I always like train-related pics :-) :-) those rail lighting is wonderful!! really very nice pattern and perspective, along with a nice job locating this place, with the rails dividing left and right...
A superb capture for me, well done!!!

    Rino, I know I struggled with how to deal with the illusion(?) of tilt. The verticals are more or less vertical but the land slopes up to the right. Maybe I need a perspective adjustment but when I rotated the image to correct, this seemed right.

    Beautiful mix of colors and lines.
It seems a little tilted counterclockwise.
In my TT.
Good luck!

    anaconda, Nice to see you back and thanks for commenting. Alberto, Lo and elliott. Your feedback plus or minus is valued.

Mepo, couldn't do much about the sign when positioning for the shot and did think about cloning it to oblivion in pp but thought somehow it could detract from the gritty industrial element juxtaposed against the natural beauty of the fading light. Overall, I still feel there is something not quite right with this shot that I could have improved on.

    Greta colour and reflections; great composition. I like this shot a lot but the commercial signs spoil it for me.

    The vibrant colours and the interesting pattern of light on the rails make this a really interesting shot.
