This is an HDR shot I took a few months ago. I posted it already on JPG as a color version, but I also think it's outstanding in B&W as well. These are the train tracks south of Chandler, AZ in the desert.

    Nice mono - I like how both the tracks and the contrails lead your eye into the image, giving two vanishing points!

    I love the lines in the sky converging in one direction, the lines on the tracks/phone poles having another vanishing point. Sometimes life just throws these relationships at us, but you have to stay alert! Good job.

    I've found HDR to be a great tool for digital b&w. So well done! Classic!
