This is quite simply stunning, just to begin with. I love how rich the red and orange colors are, giving off a feeling of warmth and happiness, at least to me. The detail that you managed to capture is also quite simply amazing, especially the railroad tracks. I would kill to have a place like this to photograph in, and I bet that you are very happy to find it. The trees fading into the light in the background makes it seem like these tracks could lead you anywhere.
My only complaint is the water mark, for I feel that it takes something away from the picture, although it anything not a lot.
At first I thought this was a pinting because of the super saturated colors. I had to look twice to realize it was a photograph. It is nicely done. The overblown light in the background actually works here. It gives the picture a dreamlike quality. Congratulations and well done.
how does a photographer find this kind of place? I keep an eye out for awesome things like this when I walk around, but I never see anything even close to like it. how does one stumble across this kind of shot?
