"Here Comes The Train!"
Isn`t that what all `kids` say when they first see it?

Originality of place and time here is both fantastic and scary. The softnees of the light and the maintainence of the detail everywhere is something just not scene and I really appreciate that exposure.

Unusual shot with strong and dramatic composition!

what about cutting the picture exactly in the middle (horizontally) and keeping the lower half

i`ll rate for that

i am tio pepe (here i go again introducing myself to people i do not know i used to be told it`s only nice/polite to do it) i am interested in a number (though small) of things including photography so here i am making comments
i am also a practitioner every now and then but i have not made any of my pictures accessible yet

What a strong visual impact this image has. And the perspective of the tracks, lighting. Superb photography!

Nice shot. Should be careful with those trains.:) Not sure about upper part of the picture. Perhaps crop a little more. Or you had cut too much.

great colors and composition Al!
kids?...that`s what I say every morning whe I see the commuter train coming down the track.....

It almost looks like an ethereal will-o-wisp that has descended from the mountain behind it. The curve of the tracks and the lighting on them couldn`t be better. Wonderful DOF...and...WOW! smile

A phantom locomotive? smile Watch yourself out there, Al! smile Composition-wise, I think there might be a bit too much going on here. I`ve considered a number of cropping alternatives, and I`m sort of leaning toward the conclusion that the angle may not have been the optimal one here... Not sure. In any case, I think the bit on the left can be cropped out safely - it`d tighten the composition and focus it in a bit more. I`m not sure I like the finishing much - the pixelated sky and the very black dark areas. But, an image that`s certainly bold and unusual.

Beautiful curves. Very Original

Powerful shot Al.

Hot shot, Al. Cropping sky portion at top right would add to impact composition.

I`m a sucker for trains Al! As others have suggested, this would look great cropped to remove the blue would then look even more dark and sinister than it does now!
