Benicia, CA ~ The old train station still located right on the Carquinez Straits

I used Nik's Color Efex Pro: Polaroid Filter - so you could see this station in the waning light, the way I recently saw it one early evening.

NIKON D90 1/30 second F/25.0 ISO 500 232 mm (35mm equiv.)

I think your composition is spot on perfect. And the border is perfect too, that way you don't take
the treatment out of context, excellent work.

This has so many good attributes that I cant get them into words, however I love, love, love this scene and your shading the time of day and the setting of palm trees & train station next to the water makes me all romantic and wud like to set it alongside some great music. Thanks Dulcie.....
