Railroad of happiness

Along the way to Baabeliites lake, to the old German power plant, I decided to take this shot. In my opinion, it turned out great. The original is really quite boring. I think it would've been even better if taken in HDR, but I didn't have tripod then, and I was on a hurry, since I had to stay on driving lane.

This picture is utterly amazing.

The lighting is great and the picture is perfectly clear. (Except for the back there - which makes it feel more of "What's in front of you is clear and your future is hard to predict")

The color scheme though... It almost seems depressing rather than happy! The dusky look with an overgrown (seemingly abandoned) track next to an old industrial area, not knowing what it is you will find when you reach the end of the road, etc. - Altogether looks kind of depressing!

That doesn't affect the rating at all, though. - I don't have many pictures on my favorites, but this one managed to make it on there (along with the lake picture you took with your cell phone).

The idea of a picture / writing / other forms of art like this though is that it is used very often though. - But this one was very well done.

In my opinion, this deserves a 5/5 on everything but the originality is a TAD bit old... but still very good.

Keep up the good work!

It looks more like a road to sadness but it´s epic shot anyway.

I really like the depth of field and subtle colour in this one....looks like the start to a great story.

That picture is setting the mood perfectly for another "The Last of Us" but only in an open world setting.
It looks especially cool how you applied that haziness in the background.

This is a neat pic. If I look at it long enough I start to feel a light breeze, a dampness in the air, a backpack on my shoulders and the sense that I'm going somewhere I want to be.

very cool photo work; almost seems as a handmade miniature railroad scene.
