Nah ... no good at all. Our trains are much more impressive than this. And we have big pictures of Ricky Ponting on the side. Our fog's better, too ... more mysterious.

hm, I wouldn't have guessed this was yours. There are so many shots that look like this and attempt to capture what you have, but fall short. The angle of your shot combined with the thick fog recreate perfectly the air of mystery and anticipation that one feels before beginning a journey.

great, poetic image, les. amidst the glut of boring, emotionless stock shots, you shine. you'd even shine amidst other great shooters :)
should have ribboned, and should have blued.

Great nostalgic/old feel. Good use of a vanishing point, would not crop off the bit of train at the right when someone suggests it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great image accenting the train nostalgia deep in all of us. Bumping up.

I love this one. The train leading to that misty backdrop looks so mysterious and beautiful. I love the black and white / sepia looking tones too. Great job.

Great image.

I can see Ingrid Bergman stepping off of the train in an old 40's movie! I like the nostalgia that the filter evokes. The mist in the background is perfect.

great train shot, superb use of sepia
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Photos that let your mind fill in the story are always nice. Where is the train coming from? out of nowhere, but where is nowhere? Good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a great photograph, I really like the period feel of it, and the composition is outstanding.
