Title • night rails

This shot is an attempt to implement Cameron's suggestion from a couple of days ago (i.e. that I should ignore the structure that's appeared in my last two shots and focus on the rails). And it's a great idea, but I'm not convinced that this shot works all that well. I'm prepared to be persuaded otherwise, but for me there seems to be something not quite right about this one.

Perhaps it's the colour? I realised tonight that the warm golden hue to the railings of this shot was because it was a partially overcast night; i.e. the street lights from a hundred yards away were reflecting onto the rails and the moon was behind the clouds. Tonight, on the other hand, was mostly clear and the moonlight has added a much colder hue to this shot.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Fortunately I have a much better one for tomorrow, yet another shot of this thing.
