    I find the exposure very nice. Perhaps it was shot in the morning? Indoor not too dark, outdoor not too bright, just nice!

    The person on the left and the photographer on the right are abit distracting tho.

    My 1 cent.

    Thanks for your reply. Agreed, too many distracted objects, the train and railway is not focus.

    Looks like a snap shot to me.

    3) under what circumstance is the picture taken?
    Taken in the morning with Av priority set to 3.5. Using Canon 60D and set the monochrome for the black/white image.
    May I know why the use of f3.5? U stated here so I assume there is a reason for that.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    My question is: How do you come to the conclusion that the yellow line is the horizon?

    i mean, look at all the vertical lines. They are all vertically correct in the center of the frame...

    Hard to say whether the picture is tilted or not, or if the train is tilted, or if the perspective make it seems tilted.

    True...But still not sure why I feel that something is tilting me off balance...not sure if it's the colors?

    You felt that way because the angle that TS choose to shoot is not directly in front of the train... and this applies to any scene you shoot.
