A train of logic.

Hi All
Part of my thanksgiving day in the busy train yards I came across this twist of views, I found it most interesting. Thanks for looking. RBorud

I'm not positive about the meaning of your title. Irony? Spewing nonsense instead of logic? Forgive my denseness, rborud - I'm not used to making my slow brain think so much, lol. The multiple train tracks in foreground, especially with the slight curve, add interest, and the composition & pp definitely catch my eye.

As an artist, who can appreciate good graffiti, I really like the processing on this and how it showcases the bright colors of the graffiti against the side of a metal train car. I even like that it's dead center.

Though I've never been a big fan of selective coloring, I have to admit that this one works. The "rail-art" just jumps off the screen at you, the primary colors blaring across the dull workaday railyard. Nicely conceived and executed.

I don't know if I like this or not. I like the concept of the bright focal point against the muted background, it's the tonality in the background that holds me on the fence. It's too much of the same, but maybe that's the point. I would expect more grey's and blacks but would that take away from the colors? Humn? S-
