A different Boston, a small town in Georgia (U.S.) that is tied closely to peanut farming. I stopped for a bit in the early morning.

#1 - Rail Crossing



#2 - 1-2-3



#3 - 3 by 3

Diverse set of three excellent images!

My heart goes to #1 - it's just such a wonderful before sunrise scene - full of expectations (trains).

TFS, Roger! Glad you stopped.

Great set, and #1 is a superb capture. Beautifully done.

#1 is almost genius in concept and execution,
and genius in perceiving it
I really like it. it pressed my button

I'm really fond of the first picture with the railroad-crossing on it - and that light on the tracks combined with the black silhoute of the buildings!

Hi Roger,

that first one is a rather special combination of light and dark - I feel you definitely need that deep darkness to bring that rather lovely rail crossing to life whilst the water tower and the derrick on the RHS just add something solid both sides to stop the eye wandering around too much.

Of the others, I must admit I am more drawn to the second which, for me anyway, is intriguing due to it's rather unusual numbering of the units; it shows no logic nor sensible reason why they are placed like this!

The third is a good B&W conversion but I find the perspective to look a little odd; I can understand the need to use the ultra wide angle but, for me, the incorporation of the thee silo's just widens it a little too much almost - though I also have to admire your efforts in correcting (or getting it 'just so') the perspective in this last shot!

Thanks for sharing and best regards, Neil.

Well, that seems an excellent idea having stopped there. Beautiful images, very thoughtful compositions and postprocessing. TFS!

Agree. In retrospect I could have backed up quite a bit and used a long lens and, therefore, reduced the distortion of the storage bins. I got distracted by the combination of the three fans and the three bins (and there was an annoying dog barking like crazy behind me who did not like me wandering around so early in the morning and that's why I didn't back up and re-compose!
