Not that there's a lot of thought going through that one's head by the looks of things!! I used to giggle at the way the heads would drooooooop while 'reading' the books on the trains..
Your B&W conversion is terrific in this shot - how'd you do it?

@Bronnie: Thanks Bronnie! I always shoot in colour and then convert in photoshop. I usually darken it down a bit and then add a little diffuse glow to bring out the highlights. I don't like to spend to long on processing these days so it's usually all over in under ten minutes.
Hope you're on the mend after your concussion btw.

Great composition and tones. I love the repetition of the chairs and the conductor (?) in the middle.

BW worked very well here. Love the emptiness of the train! Good call to take this one.

Just spotted the conductor walking through. That gives it a sinister mood for me, given that the guy is alone in the carriage. Scary stuff. Nice one.
