    wow, nice going bernie! great composition and post processing.
love the person caught by the sunlight.
i spent my 'wonder years' in a very urban new jersey environment. yes there were parks and such to find solitude but a very few of us found the tracks as a place of solitude (when no trains passing). in one direction you could see to the horizon.
great entry, nice finish.

    Thanks for the comments and votes.

Jomari - the idea was to make the solitude of the scene the subject and minimize the presence of the person who happened to be there in the midst of it all.

Qixil- I used three exposures because much of this was in shadow, which caused the beautiful blue skies to get blown out to white, when metering around the focal point.

    This meets the theme well and is in my tt. I do wish that the rail could have been a little less demanding of attention..

    Nice use of leading lines to draw the eye into the scene and underscore the emptiness. Great angle and composition, lovely detail.

    I really like the low angle of view in this shot which seems to increase the sense of depth, and thus enhances the "solitude" factor. High in my favourites.

    I like this one - #3 - why did you need three exposures.

    Meets the theme well. The absence of the past train adds to the solitude.

    I really like the composition and the message you have created here! Right on theme. Need to dec. exposure and perhaps up contrast a bit for more pop.

    Great capture - more a sense of exhaustion coupled with solitude.

    In my votes, but maybe a little crop in the bottom?

    I think I've seen the same subject (model) in a similar pose in a past challenge. Fantastic composition and a definite sense of solitude.
