Emm.. wasn't sure about entering this one. I don't think it will do well because I'm not sure this is what a High Contrast picture is supposed to look like. So hopefully I won't do too treacherous.

Greetings from the Critique Club!!

Well hello there. My first thought on this is the wonderful coloration not only of the rusty train but of the grass and surrounding area. The sky is bright and the blue is a perfect backdrop to the warm tones of the train. Is it high contrast? In my opnion, yes. Blue and yellow are opposite on the color wheel, so the true contrast lies there in my eyes. Green and red are as well, so the rusty brown red of the train is a great 2nd contrast to the grass color. As far as composition, I think you need more negative space - more area on the left of the train as if it has somewhere it's going. It would create a sense of heading toward a distant place. Or if there were space behind it, of having been somewhere else. With that tight of a crop, it boxes it in a bit too much. The lighting and focus are really well done, so with a change of placement, this train has a short trip to make to a great destination!! All the best, Judy

While the colors are contrasting, to me, it seems....forced on the train and in the sky.

The clouds are littel to overdone and i feel like its littel too tight cropped on the left side, otherwise i really like your work here!

I enjoy the shot composition, the colors, but it feels a little overprocessed.

I love the saturation in this shot. And the angle works very well. The only thing I would change is the whole right side of the photo seems dark, from top to bottom. Might be the clouds fault. 9!

Colors look a bit strange, almost like there was some nearly-harsh post processing? Still, I really like how vibrant and alive the scene is. It's very well done! 10

...bit heavy on the burn top right IMO.

I disagree with the crop, cutting the train on the left and leaving space on the right feels ackward to me. Interesting texture on the engine from the contrast, boy I love trains. Had an engineer stop and offer me a ride last month when I was chasing one. Anyway, great image, 7

Beautiful work...i love the yellow hues used to contrast the very blue sky. Excellent!

Nice heavy contrast. Not sure the composition really grabs me though - I think the crop is a bit tight at the top.
