a great shot - i too am drawn to the end of platforms where i find so much mystery and wonder in seeing railway lines disappear into an unfamiliar world.

Oh wow! This is fantastic! I really love the chaos of the lines and wires above contrasting against the motion of the sleek train.

Very different from your usual rural and traditional architecture shots, almost forgot Japanese cities are modern and crowded with concrete buildings. Nice work.

Excellent. The horizontal orientation helps lend a certain cinematic feel as well. Nice to see you venture into the city!

Nice perpective with the curve tracks. I like the red sign in the middle of them. Some beautiful reflections on the train too.

You've captured a moment of excitement here . . embarking on a journey, a path thru all that complexity out there.

an uncharacteristically industrial shot for you... I like all the patterns and lines and sense of motion. the echo between the bright orange-red diamonds is a particularly nice detail.

Interesting effect given by the train getting out of a dark area.
