OCOLOY Day 242: Vanishing Points

Part of the disused rail network in the nearby town of St. Méen le Grand.

As usual, the image is SOOC and is part of my ongoing OCOLOY project - you can read more about it in my profile.

Yes... on black is best!
Excellent composition. You got the vanishing points just right!

Super leading lines and vanishing point

I would imagine that there are a few more images down this track. Beautifully done. Thank you

Very symbolic in a way - if only we could come together and travel down the road together rather than opposed to each other. (we the people of the world)

Very sage, Joan,

Great leading line shot. Just wondering Richard, Having used the X100T for some time, would you purchase it again?
August 30th, 2016  
Two favs in one day. Someone should probably stop you before you get carried away.

Love the leading lines and low pov Richard!
August 30th, 2016  
Fascinating shot - lots to ponder here with those lines and pov - things to learn from. Fav

@gamelee I can't give you a straight 'yes' or 'no' Lee - it's an expensive niche camera: if you have a niche that needs filling and you can afford the high price... then go ahead and buy!

I was fascinated by the cult following that this camera has and by its reported ability to produce the best direct from camera Jpegs. This latter feature coupled with the fast high quality lens made me decide that it would be ideal for my OCOLOY-SOOC project, and indeed it has been. It was either the X100T or buy the 23mm f/1.4 to use on my X-Pro-1 and/or XT10 and for a couple of hundred euros more I liked the idea of the extra flexibility that a discrete camera would give me. If I was making the same decision today, I would probably go for the 23mm lens for its extra low-light capability - a particular interest of mine. Chief regret with the X100T? It doesn't have a swiveling rear screen which would make it easier to shoot from a high or low perspective.

I don't regret my purchase at all but I guess the real test will be how much I use it after my one-year project has ended. Hope this helps...

If cost didn't come into it I would have a room full of cameras, much like you it seems =) making a decision on just one has become a chore. Thank you for the reply Richard.

A great illustration for the subject. of vanishing points.
August 30th, 2016  
Powerful lines, converging to infinity...fav
August 30th, 2016  
Love those lines and the foreground texture. Such a strong composition. So sad that there are such things as disused rail tracks ... but good for photographers that some have not been built over. Fav
August 30th, 2016  
Brilliant. Your pov is spot on :)
