Perspective here isn't from the ground up, it's from the ground straight forward. Flash so harsh in the foreground detracts greatly from what otherwise would have been a very moody shot with the sunset under that dark cloud and the lightning bolt. I like how the rails head off into infinity. Between the flash and, most importantly, the angle this was shot at I'm afraid this didn't score well with me. Good effort.

Braving the railroad track as well as the lightning, are you crazy :)

Cool capture, you definitely got down on the ground and the lightning is a bonus. The foreground brightness detracts from the leading lines and dramatic sky though.

Looks more like it's going to that other place (where I have a space reserved!) but it's a wonderful capture with awesome color. Well done!

Very dramatic both in terms fo the storm and in terms of the implied danger (the express train come down the track behind you). The photo has multiple attractions. Nice work. 8.
