Coming Through! by taffy

Coming Through!

Kicking off a month of b&w so went to one of the parking garages that is situated next to the L and had fun taking shots in both directions. I narrowed it down to 3 and this was my favorite of the trio.
Excellent Black and White photo. Fav

Love the way the curves in the rail line really draw you into the scene
February 2nd, 2017  
Oh wow, I am so envious you could get so close to the action here with no fences. How wonderful. Not surprisingly I think this is an outstanding shot which ticks all my boxes. You've captured those curves and multiple lines so well and the lines and form of the train is an excellent contrast against them. Love it, love it … 
February 2nd, 2017  
Great perspective. Super lines and I like the angle of the train. Cool that you can see the driver as well.
February 2nd, 2017  
Love the curvy lines and the POV. Having a good view of the driver is a bonus. Lovely shot. :)
February 2nd, 2017  
Nice curves and the position of the train.
February 2nd, 2017  
This is terrific!
February 2nd, 2017  
That's a truly wonderful B&W image! I love the content in the picture as well, but had to wonder at what it cost for the parking garage in Chicago so you could get your photo! I have an $18 photo of the Lake Front Skyline!
February 2nd, 2017  
Excellent
February 2nd, 2017  
Great pov, I like the curves and the position of the train, it really feels like you're on the track!

I love the curves of the track!
February 2nd, 2017  
Oh I love this with the train in your face and great processing and comp Taffy!
February 2nd, 2017  
Gives you that scary feeling that the train will pass over you the way you took this shot as the train meandered in your direction. Big fav for me.
February 2nd, 2017  
It's the bend in the rails that really makes this shot interesting......and the expression on the driver's face, which seems to be saying "what in the world is that crazy woman doing in front of my train??"
February 2nd, 2017  
Well you all do bw I will try to add a little color. I just don't have the ability to stay with one thing for a month. This is a good start for you.
February 2nd, 2017  
Well done! Love the "s" curve in the tracks!
February 2nd, 2017  
Very nice :)

Just scrolling through the PP and this one jumped out at me! What a fabulous b&w image! Love the curves in the lines and the angle of the train. Great to see the driver! What a wonderful pov Taffy -,it looks like it's,coming straight at you! Huge Fav! It's great to know I have been on the L - must check out my shots. Nothing like this of course!
February 2nd, 2017  
Love your pov!
February 2nd, 2017  
Lots of lovely lines... great clarity too!
February 3rd, 2017  
This is such a great shot- I really like that you can almost see the details of the driver's face. And of course the tilt of the car and curve of the tracks. You could look at this shot for a while!
February 3rd, 2017  
Like the tilt, the eerie conductor, the in the face feel. Good choice for b and w
February 3rd, 2017  
Wonderful b & w, love this capture and the track curves
February 3rd, 2017  
@pamknowler I wish I'd thought about this spot when you were here! We could have done a quick visit to Apple right after photographing!
February 3rd, 2017  
superb work ...big huge FAV
February 3rd, 2017  
Great POV, love how it shows the lean of the train as it comes around the corner. Loving the processing too, did you use a texture on this shot?
February 3rd, 2017  
Absolutely LOVE this shot!
February 3rd, 2017  
Brilliant!
February 3rd, 2017  
Perfect in every way. Love it a lot.
February 3rd, 2017  
Wonderful B&W :)
February 3rd, 2017  
I visited Chicago when I was in the Army, but didn't get to ride on the L!
February 4th, 2017  
I spotted this on the curated page. Before I moused over to it, I thought, that looks like Taffy's.
February 4th, 2017  
I adore this - love that pov and those tracks... the last car leaning...
February 4th, 2017  
great shot - looks rather precarious on the bend there
February 4th, 2017  
Strong, gritty, interesting; so Chicago.
February 6th, 2017  
Congratulations Taffy on once again being No 1 on the TT!! Such a wonderful image!!
