The processing just doesn't work for me here. The tone mapping has produced a completely unnatural level of flatness. It's a lovely scene though.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Great detail on the train and the smoke billowing from it. Love the angle it was composed because it appears to be coming towards us to pass by us on the lower left corner. I do have one suggestion on how to improve the visual impact of the shot. Bring me closer to the main subject. In this case you have a lot space on either side occupied by the trees. To get the fabulous detail in the train you also got all the detail in the trees and the downside is they call attention away from your main subject. Cropping to have the train dominate more of the left half would eliminate most of the distraction of the tangle of trees.

He speaks upon the imagination of people who never had the chance of seeing one of these beauties. And you had it hidden in your archives.
