    like this a lot Rob. It actually has more content than I could possible understand which is a good thing in my eyes. A something not quite explanatory, if that makes sense.

    I know what you mean, Julian. It's an odd image, the tensions, the message. Luckily I didn't have time to think about it, just clicked the train as it was passing, and tried to frame it within one second. Sometimes it's better not to think.

    Brilliant composition. Like a scene from some gritty biopic.

    I can see that, yes. A young Sean Connery, perhaps...

    It's what people in England haven't been doing! Lucky I live in Scotland, and you in an independent Cornwall :)

    An independent Cornwall id becoming more appealing. On second thoughts they and I mean they voted us out :mad:

    Far to cold for me Rob, I'd rather go south if I chose, nothing to do with the inhabitants of course, they all all appeared quite nice and sane, I even met a few kind people building a submarine out of a rusty bath tub looking for a monster in a Loch ;)

    Like this Rob is this a cutting think the title should be up or down the tracks

    Not sure what a cutting is, Martin. Across the tracks refers to the graves, and across the great divide between the living and the dead :)

    Apart from the B&W tones, I can't explain the reason but I just love this image Rob

    The Cutting i was referring too was the railway also the tracks i thought you was referring to in your title. I see now you were referring to the Headstones. As Pete mentioned there are a lot of different elements in this shot and we are all drawn to different aspects which makes a great photo
