Chinnor cement works II

From the railway siding with old rolling stock. Access to the cement works was not allowed as a lot of it was unsafe. Shot in 2006, Canon EOS 20D with the excellent Sigma 10-20mm lens

Colour wise, I think I prefer yesterday's B&W shot.

Composition wise, this is more interesting.
Maybe it's because of the train. wink

So I guess this photo would look better in B&W.

Just my 2p. wink
John Prior: Hi London, you pays your money and gets your choice, but not much for 2p smile
Works well in colour for me John, well seen.
John Prior: Thanks Les.

Is this psart of the old line from Princes Risborough John?
John Prior: Yes Chris, there were plans to reconnect to Princes Risborough. The day I went there it was closed, but one of the volunteers kindly let me in and showed me around. He was measuring up a section of track as he told me that 'Scrap heap challenge' were interested in holding a track based challenge there, not sure if that ever happened though.

very good composition
John Prior: Thank you Chantal
A beautiful rural picture. I like the tones and ocher. Good composition. A greeting.
John Prior: Thanks for comment and visit Pedro
I like the way the condition of the old carriage relates to the rusting condition of the old plant. It works really well in colour this one.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, I will have to revisit this site for the railway, I remember they had an old double headed diesel, not a locomotive I had seen before.
A great capture John with lovely colours and great composition. Very nice angle it was taken in. Well captured.
John Prior: Thanks Laurette
Great composition John, love the old carriage smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, I'll have to revisit this site for the rolling stock.
The sigma 10-20 is excellent value for money and I have one for my Pentax. I have been very pleased with the results. Looks like it does a good job on the front of a canon too!
John Prior: Thanks Bill, yes especially at the wide end of the lens.
Nice composition John
John Prior: Thank you Janet

My, oh, my, what a scene. I just keep staring at that train and realizing a person brought it to that point, got off the train, walked away, and it's still there.
John Prior: Thanks Sherri, there were a lot of old carriages and vans stored on this siding for spares or restoration, I must revisit it.
