    Super nice photograph with excellent lighting and composition. Good job with the
    HDR too.

  • Thanks for you comments! I’m finding it difficult to tell just how much HDR processing is too much…

    Outstanding work Robert. This reminds me of the depot that uses to be in the town I lived in as a child, same colors. Congratulations on the feature!!

  • Thanks, Linda! I’ve seen quite a number of this style of depot, but this colouring is unusual, I think.
