are you shooting a train or shooting the train shooters? Nice concept, just a little blinding. Did you change your flash for rear curtain fire?

Nice idea, but I'm not found of the flare.

Great shot.
Could look at ths for ages and there is always more to see,
But... Does miss something...

Good luck

Weird, but interesting. Despite the huge blown out area, there is something very artistic about this.

I like the concept, but not sure about the finished product. I think that the light spot on the train is too much of a distraction from the other great colours created in the image. The two smaller lights in the middle are not too bad, but perhaps another position along the tracks without these two lights would have been a better option. Not sure when or for how long you exposed this but maybe to lessen the main light starting the shot earlier, (while further away) would lessen the effect. If this was the effect you were after then I congratulate you.
