This image really stood out to me and I think the title is very suited to the image overall. There's so much going on that to some it might look like a complete and utter mess and in a way it is, it's almost impossible to tell which cables are connected to each other. The constants cross overs of wires and tracks is much like the human body in the way that the the bones and veins within our own bodies co-exist and work together in the way that they're designed and very rarely caused problems for one another. Altogether creating a fantastic and very unique shot :)

:icongreen-kite:
Much like our bodily veins, these cables seem a complete and disorderly mess to the first glance. But that is not true. Our body is designed in a very sophisticated way and everything serves a purpose. If you looked closely you can identify patterns, just like these wires. They all connect and work for a purpose. Same thing goes for the tracks. As jumbled and integrated as they look, they are cleverly made to work efficiently.

Great use of the dark overcast clouds. They really accentuate the cold metal and lifeless constructions of humans.

I don't know if you intended for the light in the horizon or if it was just there at the time of the shot, but I see it as a metaphor for modern society - of how there is warmth, life, light and joy, and also black patches devoid of any scattered around the world.

I'm usually too lazy to write comments but I just want to thank you as a viewer for creating a great work of art. Truly a marvelous shot.

That's where I work xD The track "beginning" in the lower left corner, going diagonically across the route tracks and then turning slightly to the left right of the bridge is one of thos  use more often ;-)

Thanks for sharin this great perspective of Frankfurt/M Central's track field! Very nicely captured!

I don´t know. I couldn´t figure it out.
Maybe a little bit of that orange sky that is on "Veins of metal II" and a little bit more contrast.
Maybe..

I really like the could break in the background. It's probably my favorite part of the piece. I like how you managed to use it as a bit of a horizontal half way marker, whether you did this intentionally or not.
