Wow! Look who found the "colour" button and put it to good use!

Looks like motion blur in the foreground...I didn't think you could do that and HDR! [but, what the hell would I know, as I have never done HDR]
Samarth: thanks ray... well, i dont think i could photoshop such perfect motion blur but thankfully i was standing on the back of a moving train when i took this shot...
Very nice Sam. Nice tones and color not overdone. smile
Samarth: thanks tom
How beautiful!

Great colors. The blur at the bottom is really cool.
Samarth: thanks a lot pj... taking the shot from a moving train helped me with that wink
What a great shot Sam - there is the merest glimpse of mountain in the background
Samarth: hadnt noticed it until you pointed it out, thanks chris!
Britain's wilderness ...could this be near Rannoch moor...?
Samarth: thanks richard... not a clue where this is because i was on a train coming down from scotland when i took this...
Excellent picture. I love railway lines disappearing into the distance. The HDR is nicely restrained and doesn't look like a screen shot from a computer game.
Samarth: thanks bill... a lot of mistakes resulting in 'computer game shots' have taught me restraint...
Really nice work on the coloring, and the feeling of going into the unknown is just fantastic!
Samarth: thanks a lot claus...
Samarth: thanks

wonderful pping Sam and a cracking shot toosmile
Samarth: thanks a lot tim...
Reminds me of the movie "Stand by Me",
with River Phoenix. Simply perfect. Seems to make me think over and over. And yet evokes a calm... Well done.
Samarth: thank you very much francis...

I think this one would look better in mono - just kidding.

Great composition.
Samarth: thank you louis...
Very nice done! I also like this kind of HDR a lot. I guess the train was riding because the bottom part of the image is not sharp.
Lines, colors and contrasts are great! I love to look at this image smile
Samarth: thanks paul, yes the train was moving...
