Gained access to a rail yard near my house after much sweat talking. Took the shot at night and it just so happened that there was a overhead light perfectly lighting up this HUGE train.

Great power and strength with a blazing red complemented by the green hue in the foreground. Impressive. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

I really like this picture. It really does convey the power in industries because of it's towering appearance. Nicely done. :)

Well Done! The distorted muck in front of train is excellent. Adds a sort of grungy feel and yet the lighting on part of train makes it look almost look plastiy Very nice indeed "9"

Nice to see this example. The foreground is interesting. The 7207 must have limited what you could do on this.

I like the composition, but the lighting isn't particularly good.

8 - Good shot, good colors, good perspective. Criticism; difficult, maybe more detail at the front of the train/locomotive, especially in the dark/black areas, may have made this better in my opinion. Slight crop adjustment too, especially at the top right, there is 'something' there. Like to see the colors even more vivid, but difficult, especially with the resulting contrast issues. edit:typo

Good gritty feel to this one, sodium vapor greens work well.

i love how the train is taken in here...but i think the 7207 seems a little too bright...kinda distracting to the rest of the 'semi darker' background
