Great shot, just wish the contrail or whatever causing that streak was not there in the upper right corner. The sxposure on the rails is excellent. Also in a final version I would edit out the 5 lights just above the midline in the shadow.

Shadows a little too dark. I would like to see all the tracks or none at all.

That white streak in the sky creates an unnecessary distraction.

The top half of the picture is great, but I can't help thinking that the bottom half is just too dark even with the rails. Good idea tho.

Seems a bit dark

I hope I just can't see them because of the monitor adjustment. 5 for now
but I will check again later.

Nice color and skyline, but rails are too dark, almost not visible. PS brightness +9, contrast +47 seems to almost work for simple processing.

You really need to calibrate your monitor, I'm viewing this on a monitor where I usually find most pics too bright, but I can barely see the rails here. I think this could possibly have been a great photo minus that problem.

a little too dark in the bottom half

I like the idea here, but I can't see the rails, for sure, maybe 5.
I think if i could I would have scored it higher

brilliant understatement and a perfect exposure for this effect. (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Could be 6 but the photo is too dark to see them.

Sky is great, but foreground is a little dark.
Good luck though

This is too dark (at least on my monitor)

The orange-yellow tones of the sunset marks a large contrast to the black. Therefore, my eye is lead towards the colors. It was difficult for me to notice the 6 rails, even if you named them the subject of this photo.

Had to really jack up my monitor's brightness to see the rails only looked because of your title). Since the rails are the subject, this is another one of those dark shots that many monitors won't pick up.

It's almost impossible to see the rails. I still like the shot, particularly the jet stream trail.

I think you have monitor problems here. I have a well-calibrated monitor and I can *barely* make out the rails. I suspect that many voters will not see them. Nice shot if it presented properly. Good luck.

I like the idea very much. For me it is way too dark. I have pushed my monitor all the way in both directions and still can;t make out the subject.

a little too dark in the foreground
