David Mead General Very good scipt for your introduction to this study - it certainly explains all. I like the way you have used the lens to include all of the train and also the level crossing barrier. I like your low camera angle which makes the subject very imposing - you were lucky to have an overall clear sky which has helped to allow the train to stand out more. 4/8/2008 11:01:37 AM
