Oh man, souvenirs, souvenirs. That shot take me back in time. My first 10 yers of living were spent aside the C.N. court yard in Richmond Qc. Great POV and framing. Agree with Debra about the steam. Because you start a shot by writing the storyline first, then choosing the right POV and timing on the spot and finaly realises the shot under the right sunlight you are (for me)a real PRO. Like very much your work Clifford.

I totally agree with Heather. Wonderful composition and I love how the steam frames the right side of the compo. It would be an awesome adventure for sure. Very nice storyline as well Clifford.

Thank you Debra, much appreciated

Heather Mellon

Beautiful tones, composition and detail here and the rising steam adds the perfect touch. This would be a trip worth taking if they were allowing passengers. What a great shot Clifford.
