These tracks are obviously not used anymore, but the way they follow along the shape of the factory made me wonder whether the tracks were laid before the factory was built, or vice versa.  My guess would be the factory came first, although I suppose they could’ve built the factory to be near the tracks.  Such are the things that occupy my mind.

Anyway… as for processing, I wanted to create a look similar to what old pictures from the 70s look like.  I’m not sure why, or whether I even achieved this or not, but it seems to at least to resemble what I was after.

    Mission accomplished, Steven. This does have an old-style, 70s feel. I like those reflections in the windows as well. Nice job.

    Like you, I’m inclined to think the building was there first, with the rails conveniently laid along the perimeter afterward.

    Yup think you achieved what you were after. The compostiion is great too. I really like the way the eye follows the curving track. Well done.

    I think you absolutely captured the 70’s feel to it Stephen. The track serves a great leading line.
