Not sure what people will make of this, especially the power lines...

Editing relatively simple: cloned out three spots of sensor dust, noise removal, saturation boost, contrast boost, cropped, resized, sharpened, save for web.

If we were in advanced I'd perhaps do something about the writing on the side of the train, it's not very clear so some selective sharpening might help.

Outtake here:

Much prefer the background in the outtake but the glare on the nose of the train is horrible. Think I made the right choice though.

Nice simple lines lines and sweet contrast between metallic train, including windows and subdued colours of countryside. (Yeah, liked title too).

A good picture, but too centered to make it very attractive to the eye.

Great photo! The parallel running colors are amazing, along with everything about the train, from its sharpness to the the windows

As a pretty cool image I just wish we could get rid of those power lines.

I like the pan and the colors and detail of subject in the shot.

You achieved a good range of color adding value to the image. I really like the idea.

great pic ofthe train-it looks like a bug. The panning is excellent and the form of the train draws the eye throughout the photo.

Very nice image, but I think the composition could be a little more interesting.

These trains are much better than they used to be! Damian and I were forever moaning about the poor service but the last time I took a trip with them I was impressed! ;o)

Now, is this my 'winged' friend or another Yorkshire member? :o) Well done on getting some good detail in the train and for entering a shot that shows panning as it should be...after voting on over half of this challenge so far I can tell you that you are in the minority...you'd be surprised how many people have entered allsorts of weird and wonderful non panning shots in this challenge!

Good luck :o)

I think this is the best one I've seen so far, the train looks in focus and the background and foreground are all in motion

Isn't this from the rule of thirds chapter? Great sharpness, motion and composition.

Wow, very nice!

Good work on panning but the image itself doesn't really have any emotion to it. I would like it much more if there was either more scenery in the image or if the train took up more of the frame.
