OCOLOY Day 25: Change of Track

I seem to be having something of a love affair with contre-jour at the moment- it's always a tough test for a camera pointing it directly into the sun, and the more so when you're intending to post SOOC. I'm not displeased with this gritty result though... and if anyone is concerned about my safety, don't be - it's a very rare occasion these days for these tracks to see a train.

This image is SOOC and is part of my ongoing OCOLOY project - you can read more about it in my post for 1 January and in my profile.

Nearly forgot to say - it views nicely on black this one... now there's a surprise!
Love& fav:)

This is terrific.
January 25th, 2016  
wow - fantastic light. FAV
January 25th, 2016  
Oh wow...the light on the tracks is magical. If you were not doing sooc the only improvement I could foresee is a slight crop from the top,but even as it is it is a definite fav!

@brigette Hi Brigette, I got a notification to say that you had Faved this photo - thank you very much - but, curiously, it's not showing on my stats! Could you try again please... unless you've changed your mind of course ;-(

@vignouse hi Richard ! I wonder what happened!? I love the shadows and how the light bounces off the track
January 26th, 2016  
Love the light reflected from the track!
January 26th, 2016

I have tried this a few times lately. Not doing sooc or bw. They mostly got deleted. So I would say good job.

January 26th, 2016  
Beautiful use of light and curvy line
January 27th, 2016  
Great January light, low ans strong...
January 27th, 2016  
Any thoughts on exposure settings to handle contre-jour? This has come out so well.
January 27th, 2016  
Wonderful! Just love the high contrast emphasising the rails.And the light oil those stones... really good, Richard. Fav to the power n-1. (I had to subtract the 1 because those might be aircraft trails in the sky!)
January 27th, 2016  
@jasperc Not really: I kept increasing the exposure compensation and all that really changed was the amount of lens flare - even at +3 stops there was still no real detail in the middle ground but the flare was rather obtrusive. I think this one was taken at +1.3 stops.

@yrhenwr I think you may well be right... I'll live with one fewer Fav (note the proper use of grammar here!).
January 27th, 2016  
@vignouse Yes, good to see the proper use of words. I bet you get the punctuation right too; especially apostrophes! :-) I am rather partial to the semi colon!
